As a Producer, my most cherished responsibility is to work with writers and directors in development to bring their visions to life in production.
During production, I strive for excellence and effecinecy. I weather any storm by adopting a “can do” attitude.
Over the past decade I have produced content for multi-channel platforms, beginning with traditional TV commercial (Amazon, Adidas), social media content (Dawn, Ben & Jerry’s, Comic Relief), feature films (Esmé, My Love, Helen) and television (SxSW, A&E, ABC, Funny or Die).
My work continually evolves to cover more territory such as physical campaigns that manifest as OOH print, products and experiences (Sony, Playstation, G.E.) and even game creation and physical installations launched at Mobile World Congress 2019 followed by a tour across the USA (Samsung).
I’ve produced and an account managed inside advertising agencies such as Johannes Leonardo, Publicis, Mekanism and Little Red Robot.
I think the highest calling of a producer is to maintain the integrity of the story during all stages of production as your “North Star”. And to stay calm, cool and collected along the way. It is not my job to have all the answers, but to go and find them. To rally the troops, and to inspire perseverance, when morale lacks. It is a challenging, but fulfilling role.
“I just can’t say enough about Lily. Not only is she creative and passionate about conveying her clients message but she’s also a fast thinker that always seems one step ahead of the rest. There’s never a problem she can’t solve fearlessly with endless confidence and always with grace. It’s a pleasure to get the opportunity to work with this incredibly well rounded individual. ”

“I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating on several film projects with Lily and she has demonstrated repeatedly that she is a dedicated professional and a team player… Her future seems to grow brighter with each passing year.”

“There are people who get things done quickly. There are people who get things done well. And then there’s Lily Johnson. She does both. And somehow also manages to make everyone working with her happy to boot!”

“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Lily professionally and personally for almost a decade. In addition to hiring and supervising her on many projects, she worked on my staff for a year building a production division within a top creative agency. One of her most outstanding characteristics is her composure and professionalism under the intense pressures of the job – or multiple jobs which was often the case.
In addition to being up for anything I threw at her, she would tackle challenges with relentless grace and optimism. An independent ciritical thinker and problem solver, admirable as well that she was never hesitant to ask a question or seek advise when she felt under water, which admittedly, wasn’t very often as Lily’s potent combination of interpersonal and creative instincts made her adept in navigating uncharted territory.
The ability to step into any situation and consistently “box above her weight” made her an invaluable asset and I would not hesitate to hire her in the future.”
