Biographical Notes:

"Harry Atwood is a graduate of the University of Arizona from which he holds a Bachelors and a Masters in Music and a film graduate from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. He has made over sixty films, but only calls thirty his own creations or impressions. His focus has shifted from people to nature, because he says it has so much more to say.
