From The Show:

In 2008, today’s guest got started in video and hasn’t looked back since.

Holly Gillen turned a passion in video production into a full-time gig and has worked with with big industry names including The Sundance Channel, Sony Music, Nick.com, Bono, Big Time Rush, Forest Whitaker, Robert Townsend, and many more.

(Crazy, RIGHT?!)

Holly realized there were TONS of entrepreneurs who wanted her help, but weren’t able to afford big-time “Hollywood” budgets…

So naturally, Holly made a shift and translated her experience in film into a range of educational courses and services to support entrepreneurs in their quest for video stardom.

What I love most about Holly (amongst MANY things) is that she believes that in this day in age, everyone can be a video auteur, creating beautiful business cinema that you can be proud of.

Holly is an active member of Social Media Authority, an an amazing example of what combing passion and taking action looks like.
