Let’s get you ready.
My name is Leanne Robinson-Maine. I’ve gone by the title “Producer” for over 15 years, but I also direct, write, edit, present and perform. It may seem like a lot, but actually everything I do is related; it’s all about combining strong human presence and wildly creative media to convey ideas that inspire audiences.
My work includes producing and directing conferences for up to 10,000 people, writing and producing a feature documentary that toured the globe, producing a TV series for which I received an Emmy Award for writing, and writing, producing, and editing hundreds of corporate video projects through my company Creative Circus LLC.
I’m proud to say I’ve learned a thing or two over the years, and I have a unique perspective that combines best practices in content development with insider info on the technical aspects of production. I call it my “producer’s advantage.”
What gets me really jazzed is sharing what I know with people who are preparing to step on the stage or in front of a camera. I have information that can help you deliver engaging content that resonates with your audience.
