Claire Soares
Claire Soares is a filmmaker, author and engineer. Much of her work involves technology, ecology (including wild life conservation) & environment sustainability. A Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Claire is a registered Professional Engineer and has authored six books. These books are the basis for some of her film work on sustainability of global resources. Her films FINDING FOREST FOR THE TREES and FIJI FANTASY were finalists in the SCINE and Tribute to Jacques Cousteau film festivals in 2010.

Claire wrote, produced and directed CONSEQUENCES (aka PACKMULE) a narrative short on rain forest destruction, created for the 168 Film Festival (chief judge Ralph Winter) in Los Angeles, that received the Best Screenplay award in the Gold Category. Besides her technical background, Claire holds two Masters degrees (one an MA in Film and Television, and the other an MBA in International Business).

Claire has lived and worked on four continents. That and an upbringing in classical music and art, fostered Claire's interest in sustainability issues. She has studied ancient art forms like classical East Indian dance that promotes harmony between deities, humankind and nature.

A long apprenticeship in all facets of television production led to her first ten hours of television production with a regional television station in Dallas. That preceded her four Telly awards, two of which were on classical East Indian dance (Bharata Natyam). That work, combined with her interests in other historical dance forms, such as Middle Eastern dance, Spanish flamenco and early ballet in the French royal court (that developed classical choreography during the reign of Louis XIV), led to Dance the Gypsy.
