Generations of Storytelling

Generations of Storytelling

Molly Williamson is a 5th generation journalist. Storytelling is in her blood. Her first venture into investigative reporting began at 18 when she traveled alone to Munich, Germany. With curiosity as her motivation, Molly strapped a shoebox-size tape recorder around her neck and searched for locals who remembered her father. He had lived there eight years earlier while making a film for Lockheed. Once she picked up a video camera, a lifelong passion to document people and their stories took hold.

Molly spent 20 years at CBS News in New York, producing, writing and editing breaking news stories. She then went on to freelance with corporate clients such as the New York Stock Exchange, HBO and Canon Financial. Molly was also the editor and associate producer of an award-winning documentary, Kinderblock 66: Return to Buchenwald, her second feature-length film. (Awarded Best Documentary, Crown Heights Film Festival; Winner of the Helen Whitney Vanguard Award, DocUtah for a film which shows "a high standard of artisanship and excellence in both storytelling and visual arts.")

A mother to four daughters, Molly is passionate about family. For years, she has been active in her hometown, creating dozens of films for families and businesses, transforming what some might call ordinary lives into entertaining films of substance and heart. Through a uniquely personal lens, she documents the lives that make up the fabric of our extraordinary communities.
