Transparent: having the property of transmitting rays of light through its substance so that bodies situated beyond or behind can be distinctly seen.
My name is Maryellen Greulich and I am a videographer. I experience videography as a process of capturing the beams of light that shine through the mystery into our daily human experience. Whether I'm gathering images in nature, preserving the memories of someone's life or composing new media art, it is an act of being a conduit. I attempt to communicate messages of depth in the universal language of images.
I humbly and joyfully offer the services of videographer, interviewer and editor. I have been producing video in Bloomington, Indiana for 10 years.
During an interview, the camera silently records the unfolding memories of someone's life. The interview setting is an intentional space to collect and preserve experiences. I love the interaction of asking questions and listening.
I also capture video footage of nature and everyday life. I act as an observant witness, allowing the world to unfold. I am continually amazed by the footage collected from these outings; it’s always a surprise.
The other part of my work is as an editor and producer. I weave together compositions of interview moments, animations, photos and music to create audio-visual art forms. It's a way of sculpting new compositions out of the materials that surround us. I use linear video editing systems (Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere) and graphics and animation software (After Effects, Illustrator).
I love stories, families, history, visual art, archives and the great mystery of life. Each person I have the opportunity to interview is a treasure. I find the creative process of editing, interweaving and composing visual art through digital media incredibly enjoyable and fulfilling. I am passionate about what I do, and this passion shows in my video work.
I earned my Masters of Arts in Journalism from Indiana University (’04) and Bachelors of Arts in Peace and Global Studies from Earlham College (‘01). I became a videographer in 2004 with the intention of helping families preserve the life stories and personal histories of their loved ones through digital media. I continue this work today, and now offer a variety of video services through Transparent Works.
