Ultimately, when you choose a company, you are choosing people. Glen Janssens and Paul Lundahl met in 1994 when they showed up to bid on the same job. They hit if off immediately, joined forces, won the job and eMotion studios was born! The agency is a powerhouse of talented, creative, committed and driven individuals.
Glen Janssens

Glen Janssens

President / Director

Glen is a creative strategic thinker with a healthy dose of business experience and expertise – perhaps more from co-founding and running eMotion studios than from his MBA from Michigan. For nearly 20 years, Glen has directed projects for clients like NASA, Adobe, TED conferences and the Experience Music Project. When not behind a camera, Glen can often be found in Mt. Shasta, with his daughter whose love for animals – a horse, 8 Nubian goats, 7 chickens, three cats and a dog – has necessitated an addition to the barn. And he's a crazy about back-country snowboarding…

Lisa keeps finding herself drawn back to the wonderful people and place that make up eMotion studios. After receiving her BEd in Media Communications & English Literature in Melbourne, Australia, she worked in Corporate Communications before moving into television production at Network TEN, Sydney. A 9 week holiday in the US in 1999 turned into a 12 year stay and counting. Her first stint in the US was as Story Producer on a 3 part PBS series about the nature of play. Somehow that leapfrogged into Corporate Video production where she has been ever since!

He has worked with us on tonnes of campaigns for Adobe, HP, Nvidia, Dolby Labratories, Leapfrog and Chevron, among others. Over his 20 year career he has worked in all levels of the industry and in almost every role... so don't forget to ask him to show you his actor's reel.

Julie has been freelance editing for 13 years, but ever since she started doing work for eMotion studios, she has been hovering around acting like staff, so we just feed her and let her stay. She enjoys editing, editing, and editing. Just give her something to edit and she is happy. She almost became a lawyer. For some reason people call her "Crackletops."
