Mill Valley Edit Suite, just north of San Francisco
with remote workflow options

END-TO-END FILM AND VIDEO PRODUCTION
Northcutt Productions was the production or co-production company behind most of the work on this site. Patsy Northcutt (Principal) co-produced Global Mosaic, a four-episode half-hour TV mini-series that aired primetime in 2021 on Link TV, KCET (PBS in L.A.) and TV UNAM throughout Mexico. Patsy and her teams bring decades of experience working from early needs assessment stages, to creative and story development, to all aspects of production, editing and post-production.

VIDEO EDITING AND POST-PRODUCTION
Patsy has deep roots as an editor and storyteller and extensive experience directing all aspects of post-production. The Northcutt edit suite is near downtown Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco, CA and offers beautiful outdoor seating options and a nearby waterfall nestled in redwoods. We can also handle the entire post production workflow remotely.

FREELANCE PRODUCER | DIRECTOR | DOCUMENTARY EDITOR
Very much enjoys freelance collaborations as producer, director and/or documentary or narrative film editor. She can also write and shoot as needed. Clients include broadcasters, documentary filmmakers, non-profits, creative agencies, corporate in-house teams and independent production companies.

STRATEGIC CONSULTING
Can help identify if film & video storytelling is the appropriate medium, brainstorm ways to leverage a project for maximum results, up-level existing work, and offer business and storytelling guidance. With the breath and depth of her experience, she can add value in a myriad of ways.

Film and Video Storytelling to Inspire a Healthy, Sustainable & Just Future

SUSTAINABILITY, SOCIAL IMPACT AND CULTURE SHIFTING
Patsy has over two decades of experience creating marketing videos and communicating sustainability, social justice, purpose, and consciousness raising ideas to inspire audience engagement and culture shifts in-line with a goal, internally and externally.

PRACTICING WHAT WE PREACH
Our teams have long been aware of the hypocrisy and costs to our environment from filmmaking…

…so we tread lightly where possible—from working lean, hiring local crews and using remote workflows; to eating responsibly and shipping and receiving things slowly rather than overnight; to making sure that our stuff gets a new home as soon as we no longer need it so it can be reused before it’s obsolete, donating equipment to ewastecollective.org and paying GreenDisk.com to recycle our Technotrash, and more.
