CAROLINA LIECHTENSTEIN - Award winning independent filmmaker, artist and photographer, Carolina Liechtenstein is a unique and creative individual like no other. She is the kind of person that uses both her right and left brain. She's both technical and artistic. Born in Long Beach, California, and growing up surrounded by Hollywood notables, Carolina was destined to become a filmmaker and photographer. Her grandfather is the famous film director John Ford. As a young child, Carolina lived in John Ford's house, and John Ford encouraged her to do creative things. She started making drawings and writing little hand written and illustrated books. It was also during high school, Carolina's artistic abilities took off. She won first place in photography, and second place in lapidary. She performed in the the glee club and band, and played guitar. She also wrote fiction during her summer breaks, guided and coached by her father. She painted and took photos, and was prolific.
At 18, she joined the USAF. She started out as an aircraft maintenance crewman, a job populated by very few women at the time. During this time, she took hundreds of photographs using film of antique aircraft, clouds and the ground from the sky. She eventually earned a BA in Business Administration, and then an MBA in International Business. She worked as a Certified Flight Instructor for twenty years, and opened up her own business on the side. After flying jet trainers and fighters for a while, she discovered a new career, and it was by accident. She happened to be in Ignition Cafe, in Palm Springs, CA, editing one of her hobby movies, when a producer peeked over her shoulder, and caught sight of her work. The producer asked to see some more of her work, and hired her on the spot. Carolina played the lead female role in the feature thriller AGAINST ALL GODS, soon to be released. Currently, Carolina is shooting two Documentaries. One on a horse rescue ranch, where forgotten and neglected horses are fed and brought back to health, and then given to loving homes. The other is about California's earthquakes. At this time, she is doing wildlife photography, geologic imagery, night sky imaging and portraiture, as well a fashion photography, along with her work in film.
