Tom Shepard produced and directed SCOUT'S HONOR, a documentary about the anti-gay policy of the Boy Scouts of America and the grassroots campaign to overturn it. SCOUT'S HONOR won the Audience Award for Best Documentary and Freedom of Expression Award at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. The film broadcast nationally on PBS when it opened P.O.V.'s 14th season on June 19, 2001.

Previously, Shepard worked as an editor at National Public Radio for Linda Wertheimer and the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. At NPR, he co-produced Listening to America, an audio documentary on the history of public radio in America based on Linda Wertheimer's book by the same name. He graduated from Stanford University where he majored in biology and film. Shepard is currently co-producing and directing a feature documentary about Jehovah's Witnesses and their contributions to civil liberties.
