Senior Executive Producer/Director/Talent Nurturer
An award-winning producer/director, Deirdre brings a fresh creative approach to every project. She lends her expertise from concept to completion, partnering with clients on projects, directing multi-camera in-studio and remote productions, web videos and b-rolls. Deirdre honed her impressive skills working with celebrities and experts as a network news producer and as a key staffer on Entertainment Tonight, one the of most successful shows in TV history which she helped launch. Anyone she media trains, directs and nutures through the production process reaps the benefits of her talents and skills for bringing out their best performance.
When the weather is right, you will find Deirdre on the beach or at least making plans to go to the beach. A bit of Deirdre trivia: she’s worked with ¾ of the Beatles (sadly not John Lennon) and her favorite was Paul McCartney (sorry George and Ringo).
Senior Executive Project Manager/ Producer/Idea Generator
From the first glimmer of a concept to the final “it’s a wrap” moment, Anna guides every production skillfully and efficiently. With a background in public relations, news and television/radio production, Anna delicately balances the fine line between news and PR by managing the expectations of journalists and publicists on a daily basis.
Anna has a unique sense of humor, loves quoting movie lines, can beat you in name that tune and thanks to her two rambunctious boys, loves sports, Legos and Star Wars.
At any given point during a project, Laurie will be able to answer any question about any aspect of that project. From the big picture to the tiniest detail, she keeps track of it all with her hands-on-you-have-all-my-attention approach. Laurie studied business management (obviously) at Manhattanville College and has quickly built up an impressive track record of PR and production success.
Laurie’s boundless energy means that after a long work week, she always makes time for her life of leisure, including SCUBA diving, hiking and snowboarding.
We work in a complex business with multiple vendors needed for every project. Auritt relies on Roslynn to make sure those projects make the most out of every budget. Her shopping skills, honed in New York City, have saved us money countless times (she probably knows the exact number). With Roslynn working behind the scenes, Auritt will continue to create success for our clients.
She enjoys keeping up with the latest technology, international travel, crafting costumes, exploring all New York City has to offer, and competitive karaoke.
