Our clients love us!

  • “Vanessa filmed and produced a series of beautifully shot, expertly edited and scripted pieces for us that bring who we are and what we do to life. She doesn’t just shoot video, she encapsulates a whole experience, creating and deepening the emotional connection viewers have with our organization. She captured the surprise, delight, pride and gratitude in a way that other producers haven’t. For nonprofits, creating that type of experience is critical to attracting people to an organization’s mission, and nobody does it better than Vanessa.”

    “I first met Vanessa over a decade ago and often invite her to speak at various high profile events like the DC Environmental Film Festival.  She is a top professional who knows how to make films that really make a difference and have an impact.  In addition, she is a wonderful person who always makes a big and positive impression on our audience, many of them students. Vanessa is an amazingly effective media creator who enjoys sharing her passion with others.”
