Sean Fine is an American documentary film-maker who is the son of a cinematographer/director and a film editor/director. He took a summer film course at NYU where he realized he wanted to make films for a living. After graduating from college, he went to work for National Geographic, where he met his wife and collaborator, Andrea Nix Fine. Within a year after starting to work for National Geographic, he was directing his first documentary, which won two national Emmy Awards. Fine credits National Geographic for teaching him how to "get the shot the first time" in very difficult locations. Fine and his wife, Andrea Nix Fine, decided to make a documentary about the twenty-year old civil war in northern Uganda after having been contacted by a non-profit, Shine Global. Their son was a year old at the time of filming, causing them to stay in separate parts of Uganda during filming due to the dangers involved.
