Eli Booker was raised as part of a community that valued and encouraged artistic expression. Having grown up in a creative household and being fortunate enough to attend a local Waldorf school, he grew to appreciate and crave involvement in the arts. Eli is a talented musician who was also given the opportunity to pursue acting in high school, which seemed like a natural step for him. Eli’s passion for film extends back to early days where he used his father’s hi8 video recorder, quickly moving on to Mini DV, where he put his passion and life savings to use. For What its Worth is Eli’s first break into the narrative feature realm and he looks forward to continuing this path as new opportunities arise.
