“The beauty and artistry of Patsy Northcutt’s filmmaking is soul stirring. Working with her was one of the greatest experiences of creativity in my life. I was burning with passion to bring forth something beautiful, but did not know how to do it. Patsy and her team worked with me until they intuited what we were after. And then she made it happen — with the pacing, the visuals, the plot, the music. Day by day, she worked her magic and it was mesmerizing to be a part of it. Patsy Northcutt insists on excellence and she knows how to make it happen.”
