Snapchat Inclusive Camera

Charlie Buhler

Doomsday Entertainment

Historically, cameras haven’t captured darker complexions well, which is why Snapchat is building a more inclusive Camera that works for every Snapchatter regardless of their skin tone.

Born in South Dakota to an African American mother and Caucasian father, director and photographer Charlie Buhler strives to infuse her inherently multicultural point of view into all of her work. She is especially interested in using her unique perspective to normalize and bring nuance to experiences and narratives that rarely make it on screen: particularly those of women and people of color. Charlie's first feature film, “Before the Fire,” received world wide distribution through Dark Sky Entertainment, and is currently streaming on Showtime on-demand. Her newest documentary, “Rosebud,” is currently in post-production, and it follows the lives of 3 Native American hip-hop artists on the reservation in South Dakota. Charlie's clients include: Target, Google, Snapchat, Calvin Klein, GE, Narciso Rodriguez, The New York Times, Andra Day, Kamasi Washington, and more.
