Emme Hulm

Emme Hulm

Production Assistant

Emme Hulm never intended to study or become involved in video production at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota while pursuing her Mass Communication degree. But, by a wonderful accident, she went to a really horrible movie and her interest was sparked. It ignited a passion for film and video that fueled the rest of her college career, providing her with opportunities ranging from writing movie reviews to working on a short film set to interning with yours truly, D&N Cinematics. She is excited to bring her passion for artistry, story telling, and production into her career and your next project.
