Services by Kristy Manning Consulting

As a creative producer of multimedia products and strategies, I collaborate
with my clients to help develop ideas and find inventive ways to reach their
audiences and build brand awareness. First and foremost, I listen and try to understand the client’s vision and overall goals and expectations. Then I contri-
bute to project advancement by facilitating team coordination and productivity,
orchestrating essential details, and executing all phases of production
including creative, financial, technological and administrative.

Fortunately, I’ve had the opportunity to work with passionate, imaginative and entrepreneurial-minded individuals on projects ranging from the production of an educational DVD for a high school health textbook, to developing a brand strategy
for a major worldwide scientific experiment, to the creation of an educational
multimedia corporate outreach program.

With a diverse background including senior management at the BBC, technology, digital imaging, and stock footage licensing, as well as web development, graphic design, and educational product development, I provide clients with a uniquely
broad perspective in solving their individual problems.
