Emily Bouchoc is a senior at SIU studying Cinema with a minor in Art. Her main passion is the visual appeal of a film which works well with her strengths in production design and art. Because design is so important, she encourages others to think about what would appeal to the viewer, while also pushing boundaries to create new ideas. She believes that a sense of community is so important while creating art and strives to give others the confidence to create original ideas.
Emily’s goal is to work for Walt Disney Studios and to represent the famous mouse ears. In her free time you can catch her complaining about how cold she is, hugging people in excessive amounts, and making the ugliest faces known to man.

Mary Scott is currently working on her degree in cinematography at SIU. She was born in Dallas, Texas and raised in the St. Louis area. YouTube was where she discovered her love for filmmaking. As someone who grew up with a lot of musical talent in the family, she was very drawn to watching online music videos. Mary’s preferred field in filmmaking is post-production, where she can use her music abilities to match the feeling of each scene.
In the Spring of 2016, Mary was involved in the making of the feature film Unconditional. There, she worked as an assistant editor. To her, post-production is where the magic happens. She calls it the puzzle of one million answers. The story is driven by how it is put together. When she graduates, she hopes that she can help others achieve their vision by working in the post-production field.
