01/24/2022

Growing up I never knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life, nor
did I ever think that far ahead. I’ve always adored movies, whether
that meant going to the theater, walking down the DVD aisle at the
store, or just watching movies late at night in my childhood bedroom.

When I was in 5th grade, my parents got me a laptop with a built-in
webcam. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, I know. But all I wanted to
do was create. I used the webcam to take stills of my Barbie dolls,
taught myself how to use Windows Movie Maker, and started making
stop-motion shorts. Then I went on to create live-action comedy skits
with my sister and cousins. Then I just suddenly stopped doing them
sometime in middle school.

Fast forward a few years, I started taking a Broadcast Journalism
class when I was a junior in high school. I was immediately sucked
back into the world of filmmaking. I learned how to use a camera, how
to frame my shots and how to light a scene, but most importantly, I
learned how to use Adobe Premiere. I believe that I wouldn’t be
editing or working in film today if that class hadn’t reignited my
passion for creating.

I really don’t know why I am so drawn to editing. It’s a really
exciting feeling being the one to stitch together everyone’s hard
work. You’re the person who gets to piece together the story the way
it’s best told. I will admit that I get frustrated when I’ve been
staring at the computer for too long. Sometimes I want to pull my hair
out when I can’t quite figure out how to make certain cuts seamlessly
flow together. There’s a lot of responsibility, but it’s also a very
rewarding process.

For the last few years, I’ve been editing as many projects as I can.
Founding Ace High Productions with Sarah back in 2018 has been such a
rollercoaster, but it’s also been one of the best times of my life. I
cannot wait to get started on our next project. There is nothing I
love more than creating and I don’t know who I would be without it.

My favorite editors: Chris Donlon, Sandra Adair, and Nat Sanders.

My favorite movies: Blue Jay (2016), Clerks (1994), Guardians of the
Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) and Stand By Me (1986).

Sometimes the bloopers to a film can be better than the film itself. This was definitely the case when we made out short horror for the Halloween 48HFP last year. But we all had fun making it, which is always important.

Who We Are

Ace High Productions is a Michigan based film production company that was founded by Sarah Felicity Root and Sam Nork. What started out as a team name for our first 48 Hour Film Project submission had eventually evolved into a fully fledged film production company consisted of friends. From competitions to film festivals, we strive not only to create films for entertainment purposes, but to grow as a team. Every voice at Ace High is heard from the Director to the Production Assistant. We allow everyone to come up with ideas for the films we create and we allow our team members to try out new positions on set. When it comes to filmmaking, we never stop learning. What makes our production company unique is that we take the time to teach those who are passionate. Whether you're new to film, or are wanting to try a different position on set, we always welcome outside collaborations.
