“Joanne is AMAZING!  She’s the Filmmaker Whisperer!”​

Lonnie Frazier - San Francisco, California

“Joanne Butcher is someone who I now consider to be family because she has heard all my most intimate thoughts and my most intimate fears.  She has guided me to an empowered place, not just as a creative, but also a business person too. I’m from a small island and Joanne has helped me find my way in the global community”

Jared Prima - Trinidad and Tobago

“When I began working with Joanne 18 months ago-- seven years into my film career-- I wasn't sure if I'd be able to make it as an independent filmmaker. Years of under-earning and a lack of any real business plan had shattered my confidence and kept me looping in a place of fear. Joanne challenged my belief that it's "all about story" and that every independent film is a massive boulder to push uphill. 


She helped me understand the market, get smarter about my finances, trust my skills, and find my voice. It's been a long road, but my work and life is vibrating at a higher level now than ever before. I am so grateful to Joanne for helping me get there.”
