We produce documentary & non-fiction storytelling, journalism, educational media and advocacy.
We love to tell stories and report information that needs to be told.
Making an indie feature doc was pretty challenging. I'd never had to raise money for a project before and films are expensive. Many times I wanted to give up but I'm just too stubborn. Ultimately what worked was persistence + bartering + crowdfunding + help and support from my community.
Don't expect a perfect solution.
Dig in with others, it helps to remember you're not alone.
Sometime you have to prioritize life with total guilt free abandon.
I want to monetize my work.
I've always loved stories and knew I wanted to be a storyteller. I worked my way up in television, Production Assistant, Associate Producer, Video Tech, Office Manager of a production company, finally Producer and Editor, later Writer and Director. I prioritized my work and I loved it and I still do.
I really struggled when I became a mom. My hours were not family friendly. The two things I loved best in life were not so compatible! Ultimately, I had some great opportunities...I made as much time for my kids as possible...
In 2011, I started my own company. I love the independence of choosing my projects. The life/work struggle continues tho! Keeping it all in balance is a work in progress.
I want people to say, "Lise went after the untold stories and her work helped people."
