Video series for Dancing Ladies in Santa Fe, NM

Kaela Waldstein is a Rocky Mountain Emmy award winning videographer.

Kaela’s films are authentic and relatable portrayals of people and businesses, with high production value and emotional resonance.

Kaela applies the talents she has developed over the course of her life to the craft of filmmaking. An early fascination with the art of storytelling inspired her to teach herself how to write (once upon a time = oassaponatim). At San Francisco School of the Arts High School, she studied visual arts and gained a refined sense of color, balance, space. However, it was a social documentation class that Kaela took while studying Sociology at UC Santa Cruz that triggered an interest in human-centered filmmaking. She brings her exceptional communication skills, keen visual sense, sharp intuition and love of people to the art of video production. Past and current clients include the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, Ben Ray Luján, A Dose of Reality New Mexico, Meow Wolf, Santa Fe Children’s Museum, SWAIA Indian Market, Gathering of Nations, Bill Richardson’s Wildlife Fund, and the Encaustic Art Institute.
