Shannon Pardini-Owner

Producer-Director-Editor

With 15 years of experience in the medical technology industry.  I was ready for a creative change.  My broad experience managing medical imaging centers, marketing and staffing for Radiologix Corporation transfers seamlessly to the business of running a film set. I got my first taste of filmmaking in 2004 when a director took me under his wing and taught me the craft of storytelling and crewing on set.  From that day forward, I knew being behind the lens and filmmaking was intrinsically a part of my core.  I have had the pleasure of working with many clients throughout the US and globally. Directing and producing, while leading talented teams to bring forth our clients vision.  It is truly a gift to be a part of this creative industry.

Lisa Clapper

Yay Collective- Brand Strategist and Content Writer

Lisa’s well-honed sense of intuition comes from 20+ years of seeing possibilities and articulating brand expressions-- in, out and all around a ridiculously diverse set of brands, buildings, and organizations, including Gap, Citibank, Exploratorium, Pepsi, Kashi, Visa, Deloitte, Clif & Luna Bar, New Leaf Community Markets, Modcloth, La Cocina, Karl Strauss Brewing and so many more.

With unbridled positive energy, she excavates insights, connects disparate dots, brings clarity, even when things seem opaque. As an exuberant storyteller, her narratives get at the heart of the brand and define its possibilities. She grounds it with serious business chops (Vassar College BA and NYU Stern MBA) And that smile, oh yeah, it’s real. :)

Dustin Vance

Post Production Supervisor-Lead Editor

Dustin’s professional background began in his teens operating his father’s construction company. Being groomed in business at such an early age, it didn’t take long before his thirst to expand his creativity set in.

My 20s I ventured forward to Japan where I open my first video production house. My 10+ years of editing and filmmaking is where I get to craft together the smallest details and allow then to be seen. Every shot has a meaning; the way each shot precedes or follows each other in a sequence is a dance and the most important piece to a story. This medium and its many creative processes has always fueled my curiosity. Being submersed in the many cultures, listening to the sounds of all landscapes moves me, tapping into rich colors and the motion of movement will always guide me to push boundaries within my craft of editing and visual story telling.
