I was blown away! Don't miss out on her next one. You may have thought it isn't relevant to your business, but testimonials (stories) at the level she is teaching...oh man that's a game-changer. ~LYNNE MARIE JENROW, THE VIRTUAL ASSISTANT CO.

create video testimonials remotely.


Let's face it. Stories are the key to attracting more customers. Many testimonials are filled with clients gushing about the product or service but don't nail the future customers concerns or objections. A testimonial needs to clearly outline the sense of transformation and possibility. Let your customers be your amplifiers.

You want to have viewers saying to themselves...

"That's me! I want in."

In this workshop discover how to choose the right 'characters', know what you are looking for, what questions to ask, and how to interview. Learn pro tips for how to film remotely using smartphones, without having to hire a film crew.

The workshop was phenomenal. What I learned will allow me to capture great stories of my clients remotely, instead of wasting 3+ hours of their time and mine if I were to film it in person ... there were so many good take-away nuggets. ~ SAM HATTON, MARKETING MANAGER

Does the idea of creating video make you want to hide under the covers?

Sprout hiding copy

You are an expert in your field. You have a fire in your belly and you know you can can create something magical. You dream of creating a course or a membership, but don't have the skills or the time to do it all.

You know that video will enhance your business. But producing video can cause frustration if you try to do it yourself,  Or worse, you hire the wrong person to help you, and they don't understand you or what you are trying to create.


Work with someone who GETS you and your vision...
and won't break your budget.

Hello, I'm Laurel

Your Video Angel!

I help you use video to make your business rock because I have been an award-winning documentary filmmaker for over 30 years.

It starts with a spark. An idea that just would not let you go.. a dream for that course you want to create.. a service you want to sell.. a product you must share...and you must follow this passion...

... but there are so many moving pieces and learning curves!

You know you need video for your business. But you don't know how or when to use it and just how powerful video can be. Maybe you think it is too pricey, too complicated, and, well, just not worth the cost or effort.

As an indie filmmaker, I KNOW that spark. And I know video creates huge impact. My own dream now is to support you with all your video needs. I want to make it effortless, and well, even FUN.

As YOUR VIDEO ANGEL I bring together all my filmmaking expertise and passion to help YOU create something amazing with video, without the stress and anxiety of figuring it out on your own.

Laurel's expertise in film making made a huge impact during a "Guest Speaker Masterclass" she gave to the members of my membership.

Her confidence and knowledge of how to capture stories were impressive. She was also able to teach simple video editing concepts that anyone can apply. 

Laurel not only masters the subject of "telling stories through videos'', she also is able to make you walk away with wins.
