KIM CONNELL
Founder + Creative Director
+ Senior Editor

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

 

ALEXANDRE ECHEVERRI
Cinematographer + Field Producer
+ Editor

As a son of immigrants from two separate continents, Alex’s curiosity for the human experience is innate. During his studies at Emerson College, Alex developed his craft for verité filmmaking—capturing stories around the US, Latin America, and Europe. He currently splits his time between the US and Barcelona—a perfect launching pad to tell timely authentic stories around the globe.
