ABOUT
THE TEAM

We believe in the power of storytelling to change hearts and minds. For the past decade, Carolyn Jones has collaborated with producer Lisa C. Frank and Cinematographer Jaka Vinsek to produce award-winning film and photography projects that illuminate the depth of humanity among us. The Carolyn Jones Productions team successfully raised the volume of nurses’ collective voice through their multiple award-winning American Nurse Project, and had an opportunity to influence U.S. healthcare policy with a congressional screening of Defining Hope. Their current collaboration centers on the nurse’s role in the Emergency Department, addressing major public health issues in our country including the opioid epidemic, gun violence, lack of access to insurance, and more.
