As the Knight Fellow at Ohio University 2010-11, she earned a master’s degree from the School of Visual Communication in Athens. She produced the short documentary “Born to Die” about horse rescue at Last Chance Corral, which debuted at the Athens International Film & Video Festival in April 2013. It will be shown in November at Equus Film Festival in New York City. Work on that project continues and is the topic for this Web site and Kickstarter campaign.
Sue Morrow Productions, LLC was formed in 2014 to expand “Born to Die” into a short documentary to be submitted to film festivals. The story’s purpose is to create awareness about the plight of the nurse mare foals, the heroic work of Last Chance Corral in Athens, Ohio, and if we’re lucky, maybe to create change.
