Recent McDaniel College graduate Luke Fisher, of Westminster, has always been interested in film and the environment. Last January, he had the opportunity, alongside about a dozen other students, to take a trip to the Peruvian rain forest as part of the college's The Forest Online course on entrepreneurial storytelling. While there, Fisher created a short documentary, "The Forest's Edge." Last week, "The Forest's Edge" screened at the Global Impact Film Festival in Washington, D.C., where it won an award for Best Visual Documentary. The Times caught up with Fisher to discuss the trip, the rain forest and documentary filmmaking.
