Meghan Parkansky

Executive Producer, Editor, & Cinematographer

Meghan grew up in Wausaukee, Wisconsin, a small town located 60 miles north of Green Bay. She fell in love with documentaries after a friend introduced her to American Movie while she was a film student attending UW-Milwaukee. In 2009, she began working as Master Control Operator for the local CBS station WFRV Channel 5, the Official Packers Station.

Meghan came across the book Green, Gold, and Proud at a friends' house around Christmastime in 2009. Green, Gold, and Proud contains mini-biographies of many Green Bay Packers fanatics. She was instantly inspired and thought Packers fanatics would be an great subject for a documentary. By June of 2010 Meghan was shooting interviews for what would become "eXtreme, Loyal, Victorious. The Packers' Fan Experience." She would have never anticipated when she first started that the Green Bay Packers would soon become Super Bowl Champions for the first time in 15 years, and that she would end up capturing the whole journey on film, through the perspective of the teams' biggest fans.

Meghan currently works as an intern in Los Angeles for View Film (Best known for Taxi Cab Confessions on HBO). Their new documentary, American Winter, is due to be released in November of 2012.
