Five Questions With Producer Trevor Keller
Trevor Keller is a video producer for Wisconsin Life. He's responsible for finding new stories, conducting interviews and writing segments for the television series. An Indiana native, Trevor returned to the Midwest in 2016 after six years in Atlanta. His winter wardrobe has nearly doubled in size in that time.
1. Name your favorite Wisconsin Life story and why?
Every story is so different, it’s hard to pick just one. One in particular that I loved working on was “Feast of Crispian.” It’s a therapy program at Milwaukee’s Zablocki VA Hospital that uses Shakespeare to treat veterans with PTSD. We shot the story during an intense weekend, and it was incredible to watch the transformation that took place over three days. Veterans who came in quiet and reserved on Friday evening were confidently belting out full Shakespeare scenes on Sunday afternoon. It was an honor to tell that story.
2. What is the most fun you have had yet working on Wisconsin Life?
The best part of Wisconsin Life is traveling the state meeting so many different, interesting people. I truly love hearing people’s stories. You learn so much by just talking to people about their passions, and it’s inspiring to see how far people will go to overcome the obstacles life places in front of them.
3. What do you love about Wisconsin?
The natural beauty of the state. From Door County to the Northwoods to the Mississippi River bluffs, there’s so much to see here.
4. You’re having a dream dinner party. What three people, dead or alive – real or fictional, would you invite?
Robin Williams, Steve Martin and Bob Uecker. If nothing else, it'll be entertaining.
5. When not working on Wisconsin Life what are your hobbies?
My favorite hobbies are photography and hiking. When the weather’s nice, I like to get outside and explore. I also enjoy listening to music, watching sports and playing old arcade games.
