“We have an idea of the integrity of nature. We ask people to be mindful of the relationship between humans and wild animals. Both have a job to do.”

Cinematographer and Editor
Caroline Kraus is a writer, photographer and documentary filmmaker with a passion for storytelling and devotion to animal protection and welfare. Along with Project Coyote, her work has served the Independent Television Service, Sun Magazine, and The Wild Horse Preservation Campaign. She is the author of Borderlines: a Memoir and founder of The Moments Of Truth Project, a multimedia documentary series.
Sarah is a freelance video editor, assistant editor and post production consultant working in the Bay Area in California. She studied filmmaking in college, but primarily learned the craft in the field, working under experienced mentors. Sarah believes that editors are storytellers, problem-solvers, perception-organizers and moving collage artists. Her background in visual art and writing informs her editing work. She sees editing as a natural culmination and layering of multiple art forms, with that dash of mystery—time—added in. As an editor, Sarah sees herself as part of a team, a family that forms around each project, with each member bringing a strength to the mix. She enjoys the collaborative aspect of this work, and the moment during a project when the disparate talents of the crew combine into a cohesive vision of the work itself. Sarah is currently enjoying editing and assistant editing for several talented filmmakers and teams around the Bay Area on documentary and some commercial projects, focusing primarily on the environment, wildlife, social justice, community development and health issues.
