Carly G: I’ve had a crazy passion for story-telling through video from a young age. In high school I thought I wanted to go in to broadcast but through experience in college I was introduced to documentary filmmaking and fell in love with the format of filming real people and crafting their stories in a creative way. In 2011 I graduated from CSU Long Beach with a degree in Film & Media Studies and minors in Marketing and Journalism and shortly after that moved back home to Phoenix. It took me about 2 years to build up my network through freelance projects. I am now the founder and lead producer at The Good Vibe Media where we specialize in wedding, event and branding.
