Theo Lipfert, Associate Professor in the School of Film and Photography at Montana State University, Bozeman, is a filmmaker who is exploring the intersection between visual media and sound. He earned an MFA in Painting at Hunter College in New York City and exhibited paintings and prints widely in North America and Germany before devoting his creative energies to film, video, sound, and teaching. His documentary, narrative, and experimental films have been shown widely at film festivals and broadcast on television. Lipfert was a Fulbright scholar on the African island nation of Mauritius during the 2011-12 academic year where he taught digital media production to undergraduate students. There he completed principal photography on the documentary film entitled "Invasion of the Giant Tortoises" about efforts to introduce non-native tortoises to the Mauritian ecosystem.
During the 2011-12 academic year I was a Fulbright Scholar on the African-region island of Mauritius. MBC (Mauritian Broadcasting Company) shot an episode of the local show "Out and About" about me. That video is above.
