STORY-DRIVEN VIDEOS FOR ARTISTS & MESSENGERS
YOU HAVE A MESSAGE THAT’S WAITING TO BE shared with the world.
You’re someone who walks between two worlds.
Merging modern practicality with ancient wisdom. Activism with creativity and art.
Your voice is your vessel for change. Your work is to uplift and empower.
You’ve been feeling a growth edge and ready to take your business and visibility to the next level.
But you need someone who can help you to clarify your message into video and help you make a powerful statement.
You’re looking for more than a videographer, but a partner who can help you map out a strategy to be more visible and profitable.
Something led you here. And it’s for a reason …
STAND OUT EVEN IN A SUPER-SATURATED MARKET … with the right storytelling.
This isn’t your typical video shoot with elaborate scripts on teleprompters, forced smiles, and 20 wardrobe changes that leave you flustered and frustrated.
That’s not what this is about.
A brand film is about highlighting magic of your work with artful footage and storytelling that’ll make viewers fall in love with you, and lined up to work with you.
We know that better storytelling creates more engagement and more sales so we dig deep into your brand and message to uncover what makes you remarkable and guide you to leverage that in your marketing.
We prefer casual, interview-style videography to help you to feel comfortable on camera to capture the authenticity that scripted videos can’t.
We believe in taking the time to become a trusted business ally, so your videos are not only gorgeous, but they attract boatloads of customers and new opportunities.
We understand the vulnerability of sacred and intimate moments and bring the utmost care and discernment into our work, so you and your retreat participants always feel safe and never uneasy or uncomfortable.
Emmy has a gift. She asks questions, listens carefully, and has the ability to highlight what you do in a way that your target market is ready to engage with you! She was the ringleader of our first online project, bringing all the moving parts seamlessly together. It literally seemed like one minute we were in the dark, the next we were selling out our courses!
If it weren’t for Emmy, I daresay our online courses may have never made it out into the world. It was through her insight, great ideas, ability to explain everything clearly, and fully execute, all while remaining calm and clear, that moved us forward.
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Emmy on our Compassion Camp video. From the first conversation we had, it was clear she understood the deep intention behind our business, which made it easy to trust her both with coming into our sacred space and with translating that intention into a visual story. She has been a consummate professional in all phases of the project– her process is streamlined, my team loved her and the video was nearly perfect in its first iteration. I’d be honoured to partner with Emmy again.
I find it rare that someone with such skill, expertise and professionalism also has the heart to back up their work. For me, it is hard to think about Emmy’s work without feeling her tremendously beautiful heart and soul. Emmy walks through the world with such integrity, care, and genuine kindness. She’s also extraordinarily talented and has such a keen eye, focus as well as precision. The expression of her work exudes quality. It also contains soul, which can be palpably experienced. I highly recommend Emmy!

Emmy is Ahhh-Mazing. She has a magical blend of technical, creative and strategy with a deep understanding of video marketing which is very rare to find. Her strategy forces you to think big picture, then she helps to hold your hand to implement all of it. I totally recommend her as the resource to use when you are looking at turning your videos PRO.
The Executive Director from Habitat for Humanity of Oregon attended and said it is the best Habitat video she has ever seen. That is quite a statement since she used to work on fundraisers for Habitat for Humanity Portland Metro and tries to attend as many fundraisers for affiliates around state as possible.
Thanks again for creating such a powerful tool for us. I am working on scheduling more speaking engagements to make the most use of our amazing video.
It’s worth every penny to pay someone who is a master of their craft and Emmy is definitely that. She’s also great at helping novices like myself get comfortable in front of the camera and gave me some great strategies to improve my camera presence. I would unreservedly recommend Emmy to any entrepreneur who wants a first class video expert to help bring their brand to life.
HEY. I’M EMMY WU.
YOUR GUIDE & PARTNER TO TAKE YOUR ART & MESSAGE GLOBAL.
I dig deep into who you are, what you stand for, and the world you want to create and showcase that in your marketing, with your biggest goals in mind.
While other videographers can make you a pretty video, I take it much further.
Other videographers don’t know how to use storytelling to build anticipation for your offer before it’s even released.
You’ll walk away with so much more than a beautiful video … you‘ll know exactly how to reach more people and sell out your programs. I’ve helped my clients craft brand stories that led to a five-figure weekend and sold-out courses, and I bring that expertise to your project.
Other videographers just show up and shoot which leaves you with even MORE things to plan and worry about.
With 2 decades of film production experience under our belt, I’ll help you seamlessly plan the strategy and logistics, so you can focus on the work you do best.
Other videographers don’t know how to handle sacred ceremonies and risk putting your participants on edge at the worst possible time.
From traveling over 1500 miles by jeep and horseback in remote Mongolia and capturing dozens of intimate retreat moments, I know how to discreetly capture stories without being intrusive (or even being noticed).
BRINGING TOGETHER story + strategy.
👉 I’m an introvert but love going deep in 1:1 conversations, and I bring this passion to the interview process to help you feel relaxed and natural on camera that’ll move and inspire viewers to work with you.
👉 I’ve helped my clients go from $0 to $100k in recurring income in less than one year with the RIGHT storytelling and strategy. I’m a nerd for conversions, funnels, and launch tactics, but I always lead with strategies that are going to be relevant and aligned for YOU, while keeping your biggest goals in mind.
👉 I’ve coordinated 3 seasons of Real Housewives of Vancouver, so you can bet my entire process is organized, streamlined and designed to get you impactful results …. without the Real Housewives drama 😉
👉 My grandfather gifted me a set of drawing pencils when I was 9 and asked me to never give up on my art. Even though he’s no longer here, telling stories with video is my way of honouring my promise to him through the transformative power of art and the positive impact it creates.
I’LL HELP YOU TELL THE STORY THAT’S BEEN waiting to be told.
At the heart of what I do, is my love for storytelling. I’m invested in helping positive change-makers reach more people with their message, using the power of videos. By sharing what we know, we educate, inspire, and create a kinder, more loving world.
MY MISSION IS TO TRANSFORM THAT MESSAGE FROM YOUR HEART, INTO A BEAUTIFUL MEDIUM THAT YOU CAN SHARE WITH THE WORLD.
Let’s get to know each other and get you started on your journey.
FREQUENTLY ASKED questions
Is there anything I need to do to prepare?
During our story + strategy call, we’ll brainstorm your shoot, map out logistics, and answer any questions you might have. After our call, you’ll receive your personalized Project Planner PDF which will include all our project information, and anything you might want to bring in preparation for your shoot.
What exactly are trailer videos?
Trailer videos are short (10-30 seconds typically) pieces of branded content best for social media. They show people who you are and what you do, in a creative and visually artful way. No talking heads here! They might be shots of you writing in your book, meditating beneath a golden sunset, or just being your awesome self in awe-inspiring city-scape. They’re short, impactful clips with music with text or one short audio clip.
Who covers location fees?
I’ll always try to find locations that don’t require a fee, but it’s unavoidable that epics locations often require a fee. If you decide to go forward with this location, you’ll be responsible for the location fee, but I’ve often found it’s well worth it for the images you’ll get in return!
How will the payments work?
Once your application is approved, I’ll send your deposit invoice to confirm your spot. Payment plans are available, but please note that 50% of the final amount is due BEFORE any travel.
What's your cancelation policy?
The deposit is non-refundable, but if we have not initiated work yet, you won’t be billed the balance. If you have any questions, please send me an email at
