Donavan Seschillie (Navajo) a Native American, is a self-taught filmmaker from Northern Arizona who specializes in short narratives, documentaries, promotional videos, and music videos. Donavan’s work has been showcased throughout Arizona and the United States at various Film Festivals, Universities, Schools, and Special Events. As a child Donavan was fascinated by the medium of film and saw its captivating potential, this lead to his ongoing fascination with the study of film and the filmmaking process. At the age of 17, Donavan created his first acclaimed and renowned short film entitled “Real Love” (2007), which won him the attention of filmmakers and film enthusiasts alike throughout the United States. In 2007 the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian acquired Donavan’s short film for their collection. “Real Love” (2007) is currently on display at the Smithsonian Institute. Continuing to work with the medium of film Donavan proceeded to pursue his dream, working on various projects, which helped to further develop his style and technique as a filmmaker. It was in 2011 at the age of 23 that Donavan’s short film “The Rocket Boy” (2011) premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. His film was received with wide critical acclaim. It was with this short film that Donavan felt he had somewhat proven himself and his techniques as a filmmaker. He was and remains the youngest Native American to premiere a short film in a professional competition. In late 2011 he and his fellow filmmaking crew from “The Rocket Boy” (2011) formed their own production company: Paper Rocket Productions; a company dedicated to telling indigenous stories throughout the United States. As his interests in the art of filmmaking grew, Donavan parted ways with Paper Rocket Productions to further research new and upcoming techniques and develop his skills by learning more about the various processes involved in filmmaking. In early 2014 Donavan entered the world of marketing and film production forming his own company; Ambient Lens LLC in Flagstaff, Arizona. His current company, Ambient Lens LLC, is a firm that collaborates with emerging artists and businesses from the state of Arizona, providing a wide range of production and marketing services to the local community.
