Mr. Novello can provide one-hour lectures which combine his unique subject knowledge featuring his original documentary productions.

​​​​​Since 1985, Neil Novello's award- winning career has covered nearly every type of video production - documentaries, news/feature segments, Family Biographies, Educational and Web videos for non-profits and small businesses. He is an independent producer/director/editor and has worked for The Christian Science Monitor Television,  Program Director for the University of Mississippi, and produced video segments for Maine Public Television's "Made In Maine" series. 

Mr. Novello is most proud of "Family Bio" video biographies. Because of his news experience, he has produced broadcast quality documentaries which makes Family Bio like having Ken Burns in the family.
