Director, Producer, Writer
Megan S. Smith holds an M.S. in biology with a thesis in molecular genetics, and currently works as a documentary filmmaker and freelance investigative journalist in the areas of science and health. In 2016, Smith founded WayMark Productions, LLC, a company dedicated to bettering the lives of those with health afflictions.
Prior to that, she worked consecutive decades as a screenwriter, a Capitol Hill lobbyist for renewable energy, and a stage performer/recording artist. Smith was the first to report on the inaccuracy of Lyme disease testing for The Washington Post, and the government’s gross underreporting of this epidemic for her local paper.
Smith wrote, produced and directed her first short documentary, “bOObs: The War on Women’s Breasts,” which garnered numerous film festival awards. Starting October 2020, Smith’s feature film by the same name will be distributed internationally by Los Angeles-based Cinema Libre Studio.
“bOObs” looks into the controversial breast cancer screening test of mammography, but also considers a future protocol option for women: thermography in conjunction with ultrasound.
Her second film, “A New Standard of Care,” will investigate the highly contentious area of non-conventional cancer therapies and will be dedicated to her late husband, Proctor.
BEHIND THE FILM:
WayMark Productions investigates areas otherwise overlooked or underreported by mainstream media. Currently concentrating on health issues such as cancer and Lyme disease, WayMark intends to broaden its mission in upcoming years to include other topics having an adverse effect on the world and its people.
WayMark Productions, LLC, was founded by Megan S. Smith, a screenwriter of 13 years and now documentary filmmaker.
Having carried out thesis work in molecular genetics for her master’s in biology, in addition to an undergrad pre-med curriculum, Smith is uniquely qualified for investigating areas in health fields, carrying WayMark’s vision forward. Smith has written several investigative journalism pieces as a freelance writer on Lyme disease, including one for The Washington Post.
