My name is Chelsea, and I’m a Bay Area based director / producer / wearer of many hats. I work with local production companies and agencies to produce and direct videos for companies like Adobe, HP, Dolby, Uber, Oculus….the list goes on!
Over the years, I’ve been able to meld together my wanderlust and filmmaking abilities, and have since been able to carve a little niche for myself as a traveling producer/director. The catalyst for this specialty has been working with emotion studios and Adobe on their annual worldwide sales conference video series. I started working on the global video project in 2013 and continued the series through 2015. While many of my corporate projects take me on the road, this series in particular gave me the opportunity to produce videos in international cities such as Tokyo, London, Vancouver, Manchester, Paris, Amsterdam, Sydney, and Melbourne, and also in domestic cities all over the US.
I’m also in post production on my first feature-length documentary, Bleeding Audio. You can read more about it here, but from a personal level–this project is very near and dear to my heart. The band, The Matches, have been a big part of my life since 2005, and it’s been such an honor to be able to tell their story. Making a film about a band I love, and the story of the music industry’s evolution in the digital age has been a fascinating exploration that encompasses all of my passions. Plus, I got to film and work on a tour–which has always been a big dream of mine!
Other than that, I have a variety of projects on the side. Between music videos, short films, my nerdy Doctor Who podcast and hosting the feminist screening series, MUFF Society–I like to keep busy and constantly create create create.
3 random fun facts:
- I’ve had blue hair since 2008 & haven’t turned back. Why? It’s fun & I love it.
- I have a black & white pattern addiction: there is an 84% possibility that I am wearing black & white stripes or houndstooth at any given moment. There is a 100% possibility I’m wearing one of them as I type this. There is a 50% chance you will guess which one.
