“Nepal Quake: Terror on Everest", was an ambitious special filmed on 4 continents and delivered in less than a month. Rapid reaction times are critical when producing fast-turnaround docs and Silverlining are one of the best in the business at speedily connecting us with decision makers in channels around the globe, such as Smithsonian, enabling us to get straight into production.”

She brings to the table all the broadcasters, producers and distributors you need to be talking to. Her infectious enthusiasm and tenacity are legendary- as is her sense of fun.
