Hi, I'm Kaitlyn!

Video Producer & Editor | Imagination Enthusiast

After I watched “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” and its “Behind the Scenes” content as a teen, I knew I had to be a filmmaker. It wasn’t because of the glory or the awards, but because of the simple and ingenious man I saw running barefoot around set (aka Peter Jackson and my first favorite director). It was the first time I realized I could combine my love for writing and art together into the visual story-telling wonder of film production.

Fast forward to today, and I'm pursuing my passion for telling stories through a visual medium both on YouTube as iIMAGINEblank and in the professional world as an educational video producer and editor. I've progressed from making silly short films in my backyard to creating educational media for hybrid undergraduate courses and promos shown to international audiences. With over 20,000 subscribers and 2 million views on YouTube, I've found a great passion for inspiring teenagers (and really anyone who wants to be more creative!) to be the best version of themselves and build their self-esteem through positive thinking.
