About

Brenna Sanchez is a documentary film producer, with an interest in arts, nature, adventure and cultural projects. The Detroit native and former biology major got her start at Tremolo Productions, a small but wily documentary production company. Previously, she was a writer and editor for Raygun Magazine, and the award-winning Detroit monthly magazines Orbit and Hour Detroit. She has also written more than 500 short biographies on international leaders in science, arts, sports, politics and activism for reference books. (That's about a million words.) She found the leap from print to documentaries a dynamic and natural next step. Her interests include hiking, making things, primitive art, demos and unmixed audio, sardines, figs, motor sports and travel by horseback. She also is a visual artist and enjoys the Stanwood Club supper club.
