Who we are

Peter Getzels
Harriet Gordon
Living in a stone house in a remote corner of Peru whilst trying to finish their first film about the largest religious pilgrimage in the Andes, Peter and Harriet thought they'd be there forever. But after three years they were able to complete the edit, and ever since they have chased stories about science, anthropology, religion and adventure. With a long list of international awards and over forty documentaries plus a number of TV series, Getzels Gordon have produced for British, American, European and Chinese television. Based in the UK for 16 years and now in Washington DC, Peter is also the producer of Closer to Truth, a long running PBS series about the cosmos, consciousness and the philosophy of religion. At the heart of their work is a passion for great stories.


Catherine Shields
Whilst at Getzels Gordon Productions, Catherine Shields can be found perched on her yoga ball, syncing up with whatever editing work is at hand. Cathy's opus of work as an editor of documentaries for 25 years has earned multiple awards, including 2 Emmys, 2 Oscars and an Oscar nomination.


Marc Masters
Marc Masters has been a documentary editor for 15 years with credits on programs for PBS, Discovery Channel, National Geographic and TLC. He is also a freelance music journalist for Wire, Pitchfork, Baltimore City Paper; and his book 'No Wave', was published by Black Dog Publishing.


Erik Osterholm
Erik Osterholm's career started in Aspen and quickly branched out to NY where he is on his third season as producer/camera for Anthony Bourdain's travel series, now on CNN. A sailor and mountaineer, Erik has filmed in the Arctic and Antarctic as well as Africa, Asia and South America.


Ron Naveen
Ron Naveen's been going to Antarctica for more than 30 years — what amounts to more than 6 years in real time, and counting penguins for Oceanites and his Antarctic Site Inventory for 20. Everyone concerned with Antarctica's future conservation substantially relies on the Inventory's unique database and analyses. Penguins are Ron's marquee animals, they're constantly prancing across his dreams, reminding him how awesome it is to be alive. They also reinforce the responsibility he feels to think more positively and proactively about our fragile, watery planet, and to continue the Inventory's invaluable work well into the future.
