BIO: Dagny Looper fell in love with astronomy at a young age, growing up in rural Arkansas. While earning her PhD in Astronomy, she started making short films and decided she wanted to tell stories about everyone from hapless scientists to down-on-their-luck folks. After earning her PhD, she moved to New York City where she is a director/producer in the graduate filmmaking program at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. She recently made the 2014 NYU Purple List with fellow co-writer Brett Wagner for their film Daisy, Arkansas. Dagny is the proud recipient of the Maurice Kanbar and Leo Rosner scholarships at NYU, and the National Hispanic Foundation of the Arts Scholarship.
