“To me, everything is about how best I can help tell your story and I get to tell that through a multifaceted lens.”
I’d like to begin by expressing the type of person she is. Chelsea is extremely caring, compassionate and understands the responsibility she has in telling her stories. She has razor focus and is as passionate of a filmmaker as I have been around. From a technical standpoint, her creative decisions come very natural and she knows exactly what she wants visually. She has a unique ability of getting people to rally behind her and is a great communicator, which is essential in working with cast and crew. I can attest first hand to both her character and ability.
