Maxwell Mueller is a documentary filmmaker with a background in video journalism.
After graduating from Oberlin College with a BA in Cinema Studies he worked as a producer for PBS, Fast Company, Inc. Magazine, and Simon & Schuster Publishing in Philadelphia and New York.
Maxwell is interested in using documentaries to examine complex communities that stand apart, exist within, and reflect aspects of their larger cultural context. He endeavors to create heterogeneous portraits of seemingly monolithic groups.
He recently completed The Santa Cruise, a twenty minute documentary about a group of eighty professional Santas and Mrs. Clauses who went on an Alaskan cruise vacation together.
