CHIEF STORYTELLER / VIDEOGRAPHER / VIDEO MARKETING STRATEGIST - EMMY WU MEDIA LLC

Chief storyteller and video marketing strategist, I help positive change-makers reach more people using the power of videos. Led by intuition, and driven by data, I help positive change-makers and heart-centred entrepreneurs reach more people and change more lives, with timeless marketing videos that motivates and inspires people into action. My mission is to transform that message in your heart, into a beautiful medium that you can share with the world.

If you could tell your younger self something you’ve learned along the way, what would you say?

Keep doin' what lights up your heart. You WILL get there!

What is the most unique or special place you’ve worked/done a shoot?

I'm writing this from my hotel in Ulaanbataar, Mongolia, where I'm about to shoot a documentary for a client, Liv Wheeler, who's an international ritual facilitator. We'll travel by jeep and horseback to meet with shamans along the way, then finally meeting the Dukha people of the White Reindeer: the last nomadic peoples on earth.

The documentary will follow a 1500 mile pilgrimage where we'll explore the impact of modernity, and learn how ancestral traditions may still serve us in our modern day. The film will also discuss the fine balance between the masculine and feminine, and how we can bring balance in a world seemingly so driven by capitalism and commerce. We've also interviewed several spiritual elders, leaders and authors to lead this conversation.

What inspired you to become an image maker?

I've always been fascinated about telling stories with the moving picture. When I watched "Baraka" by Ron Fricke, that was when I decided "that's what I want to do with my life".
