Heather is a former secret agent for the Soviets. Or at least she has what it takes to play the part. Actually, she has plenty of "agency" experience serving corporate clients for over fifteen years right here in the good 'ole USA. A lover of film and all things related to marketing, brand storytelling and visual communication, she fell hard and fast for the wayward bunch at Once Films.
Currently working remotely from the shores of Nova Scotia, she focuses on connecting with like-minded corporate-sustainability leaders and social-responsibility enthusiasts at corporations and advertising agencies in St Louis and around the globe. She is passionate about helping existing and prospective clients achieve their communication goals. And, while she is temporarily based in the chilly north, you might say every day is a bit sunnier with Heather on the team.
Eric is a dedicated family man. When not playing with the kids you can find him running through the woods with his buddies. A Tough Mudder indeed, Eric and friends love the outdoors and adventure racing. Scrambling over obstacles as a team must have prepared Eric for editing, a skill he mastered long ago.
Eric can get music and film to dance together and somehow he makes it look easy. He knits B roll together in beautiful montages and flows graphics with ease. Eric is calm and unflappable. His quiet self confidence pervades the room and things just flow. He makes editing look as easy as reading a bedtime story to a 4-year-old. Every video team needs a master editor - Eric is ours.
