About & Contact
Megan Hattie Stahl was born in Portland, Oregon and raised nearby. After her freshman year at Portland State University she spent a year working as an au pair in the Paris region and has been fascinated by the au pair experience ever since.
In 2013 she graduated from PSU with a B.A. in French, moving back to Paris soon after to teach English for a year. Not quite ready to leave, she stayed in Paris for another year and enrolled to study film at Paris West Nanterre La Défense, during which time she interned at the Cannes Film Festival and earned a Licence (B.A. level degree) in Film. In 2015 she returned to Portland, cash poor yet inspired and full of ideas and dreams.
A classically trained pianist and collector of instruments, she also likes to record music in her room sometimes. You can purchase '9 Bed, No Bath' a limited edition cassette tape of covers, original music & comedy here!
Megan is currently accepting freelance video and editing jobs in the Portland area. Inquire below for rates. She shoots with a Canon 70D DSLR, records audio with a RØDE VideoMic and Zoom H4N Pro and edits with FCPX.
(She's especially interested in collaborating with musicians/bands directing music videos.)
In Summer 2017 Megan will return to Paris to begin research, and later, production on a documentary about Parisian au pairs of the past and present. For more information and to get involved as a subject, fill out the form below. Dedicated site coming soon!
