In 2011, Sally founded I Love Public Schools, a film and impact campaign dedicated to igniting pride and support for public schools in Nebraska. Since 2011, Sally has directed and edited countless award-winning films to raise awareness about the great things happening in Nebraska schools and educate audiences about the ways societal issues impact schools. Having witnessed the all-consuming responsibilities of a profession focused on the advancement and well-being of kids, she wanted to apply her skills to change the narrative about educators in all schools, public and private.
As a cinematographer, Andy has worked on the I Love Public Schools campaign since its inception. He shares the passion to elevate educators having seen them in action for more than a decade. After taking a three-year hiatus to live abroad with his wife and family, he returned to the campaign as Director of Photography. Andy has an unparalleled ability to make everyone feel seen and heard, and it is from this place of comfort and trust, that he’s been successful in capturing the most authentic stories possible.
