Northernlight Filmworks has grown and expanded so we thought it would be a good idea since we have updated our About Us page with new head shots and bios to do a blog series introducing our team.
Jennifer Moon (AKA Jen) started Northernlight Filmworks in 2006 with her husband John. She runs the day to day operations, schedules and meets with clients, organizes the shoots and schedules the teams. She is also one of the lead shooters and editors. She gets asked often if she went to school for production and she very confidently says, “No, I taught myself how to shoot and edit”.
Since she was little she has always been interested in learning how and why things work and even once when about 10 yrs old took apart her dad’s Pachinko game because the balls were getting stuck. With the drive to always expand her mind, she decided she wanted to become a teacher and received her degree from Indiana University at Indianapolis in Elementary Education. Though she loved teaching, Northernlight Filmworks was born and grew quickly. She took a leap of faith and dove head first into this amazing adventure of being an entrepreneur and working along side John.
In addition to running Northernlight Filmworks, she helps John manage Story House Media, and is the co-founder of The POSH Retreat which is an annual conference for female filmmakers and photographers.
She has been married to John, who you will meet in the next post, for 12 years. They have 5 amazing children (no she did not give birth to all 5, they are a blended family).
A yellow lab named Sydney, who is 14 yrs old, and a cat named Lucy.
