Courtney Bridgers

camera assistant and operator

A businesswoman and an arsonist, both figuratively and literally, Courtney Bridgers works in film as a camera assistant and operator. While she often works out of state, she always comes back to North Carolina, where she owns a beautiful Carolina Place estate with her cat Meela. Since 2008, Courtney has been very closely involved with bringing more and better light and magic to Wilmington, through her work with Cucalorus Film Festival, an internationally recognized annual event and one of the industry’s most anticipated festivals. Courtney graduated from UNCW in 2009 with a degree in communications. She is passionate about creating community and making things, any things. She believes in economy and the economy of the southeast, and that anything can be made into a successful venture, if you pay attention to the details.
