KIM CONNELL
Founder + Creative Director

Kim is an award-winning director and editor. Kim cut her teeth editing on a Steenbeck flatbed at American University between Division 1 basketball games and trips home to Alabama to nurture her southern storytelling roots. Career highlights include sold out premieres at Sundance, Tribeca, Silverdocs and IFC Center, winning her tenth Telly and filming her daughters Maeve and Beatriz growing up.

KELLY SHEEHAN
Vice President + Executive Producer

Kelly is a versatile and creative production executive with over 80 hours of broadcast and film credits.  She caught the storytelling bug at Northwestern University where she directed theater and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in TV and film production.  She’s been in New York ever since, loves working with Kim, and recently started coaching her daughters’ trophy-winning all-girl First Lego League robotics team.
