Bringing Stories to Life Through Video
Executive Producer and Director at Such Video
Karen Stefl loves a lot of things in life; her two children (of course), cooking and philanthropy, to name a few. She is also able to do something that she loves every day at work — Stefl is able to channel all of her creativity as a professional storyteller. As a partner for Such Video, as well as the executive producer and director, Stefl is able to bring stories to life for her clients. She has always known that she wanted to work in this industry; entering writing contests and competing in theater, as well as interning with television stations were all stepping stones to make it to her dream job. Her dream definitely came true. For the past 20 years, Stefl has worked for Such Video. When the company started, she began as an intern and worked her way up the ladder at the boutique production and post-production company. She was finally given the opportunity to prove herself when she was able to make her vision for a public service announcement come to life. From intern to partner, Stefl now spends her days working directly with clients. She researches, writes and plans, among other things, to create something amazing for them. What she enjoys most is that, “there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ day.” each day brings something new. Stefl’s natural curiosity is what keeps her motivated to work. She loves figuring out ways to solve the problems that she is presented with. She has the opportunity to not only help clients, but also to help her team. Laughing and chatting with them before meetings creates an awesome bond, but being able to serve them in some way keeps her feeling fresh and motivated to take on her day.
