Congratulations to the lynda.com Documentary Team

Most people know lynda.com for our immense training library of over 80,000 video tutorials. But we also have an in-house documentary team that’s producing some very compelling documentaries with the same high quality as our individual training titles.

Recently the Santa Barbara International Film Festival screened our latest full-length documentary Jerry & Maggie: This is not photography. The film takes us inside the home and workspace of husband-and-wife artists Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor, who push the boundaries of photography with their haunting, layered dreamscapes.

“It was a great screening with Bruce and Lynda in attendance. Full house, great Q&A session,” said David Niles White, documentary producer at lynda.com. “It was everything we could hope for as filmmakers.”
