Emily can lead people with great technical skills because her communication powers are extraordinary. I am many years older than her, but I am quite willing to follow her directions to the letter and I have seen other image professionals immediately accept that she is alpha on set despite their own years of accomplishment and experience. This is also a rare ability, and she uses it with a perfect sense of balance: she asks for concentration and execution while also expecting and demanding opinion and intuition from the people who follow her direction.

Emily is an incredible creative visionary. She has mastered the art of visually telling compelling stories. She has stellar work ethic and disciplined focus. A true student of her craft, she expertly manages all aspects of production, including storyboarding, shooting, and editing. Emily is my go-to when I need expert advise on my video projects –– she was instrumental at helping me launch and produce my first video series. She is also a talented director and all around amazing person to work with!

Emily directed, filmed, produced, edited my Kickstarter video project for my brand "asum" with great passion, professionalism, creativity and enthusiasm. I hired her over many older, more experienced film producers because I sensed that she would give her whole heart to producing a great video, not just satisfy to get hired/paid. And my instincts were correct. She put great thought and detail through out the project... from conception, to video shooting, to production and editing. The quality of work matched the high quality of asum's brand, photos and workmanship. With her help, asum's video helped put my brand on the map, reaching customers around the world.
