Julie Perini has been documenting her daily life with consumer cameras since her teen years in the suburbs of Poughkeepsie, New York. For the past nine years, she has been building an archive of her life with her Minutes Movies project, a 60-second video she shoots at least once a day with her iPhone and Flip camera. In addition to creating experimental short-form autobiographical videos, she also makes documentaries, media installations, and writes creative non-fiction. She holds an MFA from the Department of Media Study at the University at Buffalo and a BS from Cornell University. She is an Associate Professor in the School of Art + Design at Portland State University and a backcountry guide for the arts/environmental organization, Signal Fire.
