About Elaine

I have been an Assistant Director in film and television for over 15 years, now moving into producing with an emphasis on multi-platform storytelling. I am trying to learn all I can and I welcome collaborations with like-minded artists. I am in the process of building my network of creative people so we can produce great work.

I was the Managing Director of the Method Fest film festival for 10 years. I also worked with the AFI Fest and the Milan International Film Fest (MIFF). I really enjoy working with up and coming and experienced filmmakers who are trying to push artistic boundaries and focus on character driven stories.
