Claremont McKenna College, one of the nation’s top liberal arts colleges, prepares students to make a difference. The College educates students for thoughtful and productive lives and roles of responsible leadership through its strong, real-world missionRenowned for expertise in economics and government, Claremont McKenna features accomplished scholars who are committed teachers in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences.  The school is distinguished by eleven world-class research institutes.

We introduced a number of new programs this year and decided it was important to capture the events on film. Elise was amazing in that she was able to capture magic moments, remain unintrusive and elicit authentic and critical feedback with her warm and neutral interview style. She was incredibly easy to work with, helped us brand each video with editing styles that reflected the tone and theme of the event, and worked at lightning speed. We had video handed over on the same day, interview transcriptions submitted to us the next, and first drafts done in less than a week! I’m not sure how she does it all since I know we were not her only client! She met every deadline, was always ready well ahead of our call time, and everyone who she interacted with loved her! For some of the longer overnight and multi-day retreats, she became part of the family!

Mastin Kipp is a number one best-selling author, speaker and Creator of Function Life Coaching™ for people who are seeking rapid transformation in their lives. He has been featured on the Emmy Award show, Super Soul Sunday, and recognized as a “thought leader for the next generation” by Oprah Winfrey.

I’ve traveled all over the USA and internationally filming with Mastin. We document his big live events and intimate retreats – as well as film studio shoots, interviews, testimonials, and podcast videos. It’s a lot of fun and also hugely gratifying to be a part of this deep transformational work.

Save the Children is an international non-governmental organization that promotes children’s rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries. Every child deserves a future. In the U.S. and around the world, they give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, Save the Children are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. They do whatever it takes to save children, transforming their lives and the future we share.

I love taking Elise to the field with me. She does it all – lights, sound and shooting – and knows how to ferret out the story we’re looking to tell. Her editor’s eye has often saved us because she knows what we need to capture even if we hadn’t anticipated that need. At the end of the day we get beautifully shot, high-quality footage that she expertly edits into extremely compelling pieces.

Welcomed into private homes, schools, daycares, and community gatherings, I’ve traveled throughout rural America to shoot for Save the Children, and it has been eye-opening. I then edit together short-form documentary content, which is put up on the web and screened at private conferences. The third video up here – I didn’t shoot, but I edited. It takes place in rural Oklahoma after the devastating tornado that ripped up a community and endangered the lives of kids. It has become one of Save the Children USA’s biggest hits on youtube – over 600,000 views.

Elise delivers a fine creative sensibility and sharp eye for those times when we need to outsource editorial. She is smart, efficient, and very easy to work with. It’s a great combination. Timothy Eaton

Founder, Verite Studios

Ms. London came in as Assistant Editor on my feature documentary, Tunahaki. There were more than a few problems with it, but Elise’s positive attitude and daft talent in solving problems creatively helped to win the film its fair share of awards. And well before the story was finished, Elise had won the title of Editor alongside the Lead Editor I had originally hired. Mason Bendewald

Elise is smart and creative and works in a timely matter. I would hire her again and again. Nicole Torre

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Elise for several years in a wide variety of industries, and my creative studio would not be anywhere near where it is now without her contributions. Elise is one of the most capable and dependable creatives I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She has an impeccable gift to make people feel at ease and taken care of, and she understands every angle of production. For that reason I’ve never hesitated to call on her for the most demanding and critical jobs – and have sent her in my place to dream jobs around the world – that’s how much I trust her.  Akira Chan

After trying to work with a number of people at all different levels (totally green to totally pro, and everything in between), you’re exactly the person we’ve been looking for (and totally pro, by the way). You are easy to work with, you are quick, and you fix all of my mistakes. Tony Pinto

Video is such a powerful medium for capturing and sharing the human spirit. Let’s make some magic!

Hi! I’m Elise. I produce, film, and edit short-form non-fiction video projects. Events, online courses, testimonials, interviews, documentary BRoll – I’m in! I have a particular knack for capturing all the magic moments at events, as well as getting captivating material from interviews and testimonials. Much of my work has been in the personal growth field, which I love. I think life is about learning and I appreciate that I get to learn from my subjects on a daily basis.

I focus on capturing real people, real stories, real emotions. I am very detail-oriented and believe in crystal clear communication, especially given remote workflows. Another thing about me – I love working collaboratively as a team. No big ego here!
