Caleb Heller

Caleb Heller

Caleb Heller grew up in southern NH. As an undergraduate student at James Madison University he studied computer animation and photography. Upon graduating he and his father spent the summer and very cold winter shooting a documentary on homelessness in NH. From there Caleb moved to Washington DC and took a job with an art restoration firm, working on various projects including the largest recovered piece of the Titanic. The following three years were spent working construction with Habitat for Humanity in various places including Baltimore, Los Angeles, and India. His most recent job as a video editor was a great experience but left something to be desired so he applied to the Social Documentary Program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
