I love the way Theresa ties together different – and sometimes surprising -- perspectives to form beautiful, cohesive, intimate videos. She has always surpassed our expectations...she engages both her left and right brain to coordinate the entire project from start to finish, always with smashing results.

Theresa’s video captures the unique and incredibly personal journey that is the Y-NOW program. Her ability to get to the “heart” of our program working with children of prisoners, combined with a deep respect for (and appreciation of) these youth, made the end-result something we can all be truly proud of.

Working with essentialmedia is like having extra member on your promotional team. Theresa is quick to grasp the intent of a project and the imagery needed to convey the message. 

Stacey Yates
Vice President, Marketing & Communications

As an entrepreneur, I am constantly unfolding in words the vision of my company, what it is, and what it might someday be. Theresa has the gift of hearing a vision and translating it into images in such a way that the viewer is clear about who we are and completely inspired by what we can be. Furthermore, Theresa is a true professional, delivering excellent work on tight deadlines and pricing her work competitively. Theresa creates products beyond the imagination, and produces them with a firm grounding in reality.
