NATALIE HINCKLEY, DIRECTOR
I love getting to the core of a story. It’s fun and challenging to get people to let their guard down to create a genuine moment of connection. The most rewarding aspect of directing video is being able to capture those moments of authenticity while constantly being exposed to diverse people, both in the crew and those at the focus of our documentation.
That, paired with the technical problem-solving required of the medium, is what keeps my job interesting. Technology is constantly evolving; whether it’s recording a simple interview or creating a multi-camera live streaming broadcast, there’s always something new to learn.
Owning a production company has allowed me to have an amazing range of unique experiences, from directing a Reverend Horton Heat concert to being present at the anniversary of the civil rights bridge crossing in Selma Alabama with Coretta Scott King. So many times I find myself in situations that lead me to think, “Is this really my job?”
I find my work incredibly rewarding and meaningful. I also take a great amount of pride in being a Wisconsinite and University of Wisconsin alumnus, keeping my business here and creating opportunities for others.
