Those of you close to the business have come to know what a huge role our resident over-achiever Laurie Buschmann has played in the success of IndyVisual ever since she entered the fold in 2000. She has shot, edited, produced, assisted and generally done everything in her power to help keep us rolling along. And all this as a SECOND job while working full-time with the types of production companies that most people in our field (including yours truly) could only dream of having on our resumes, currently as a producer for ideavenue.
She has lent her talent to every major television network and every big-name corporation in the state and beyond, establishing a sterling reputation for her professionalism and attention to detail. But most impressively to me, she has endured and overcome the most difficult of challenges along the way with complete grace and dignity, never losing sight of the qualities that made her an invaluable collaborator and one of my very best friends.
So it is with no small measure of excitement that I can announce here that Laurie has achieved what so few in our industry can claim – the status of REGIONAL EMMY-NOMINEE for her role as the producer of a program called “Steel Horse” during her recent tenure at WISH-TV. She has truly earned every bit of that title the hard way, and I am so incredibly lucky and proud to have had her as part of the IndyVisual team for the past seven years – and hopefully many more to come!
