“One of the first experiences I had with Hannah was on a large commercial production with a lot amount of moving parts. Immediately obvious was that she ran a well oiled machine where every detail was considered. Her leadership skills and ability to bring people together fuel the fire a team needs to create a professional atmosphere that delivers nothing but top notch creative content. She truly cares about each project being as successful as it can possibly be. When you meet Hannah, you will quickly experience how professional, fun and kind she is. GreyHouse Productions has you covered.”Ben RodigVideo Drone Operator

I know that when I turn around she’s got my back, allowing me to be at ease and focus on what’s really important… capturing fantastic images for my client.”Donte TatumPhotographer

Whenever a shoot goes smoothly, you know a good producer has been at the helm. This has been my experience with Hannah.”Susan CartlandArt Production Manager at Mcgarrybowen

But with Hannah at the helm, you never know one even occurred because she handles them quickly and kindly, with grace, resourcefulness, and understanding. She is a positive partner on any project large or small, and very passionate about good old fashioned hard work.”Julie TallaridaCasting Director and Real Talent Agent
“We love working with Grey House whenever we can because not only are they organized and do an incredible job of managing a production, but they really make it an enjoyable experience & work environment. The focus on hospitality & care for the little things help us and the crew do our jobs better because we are functioning out of a place of appreciation - we feel appreciated and in turn we really appreciate the hospitality. It’s easy to feel drained or worn out when you’re in the thick of a project, but team Grey House helps give us the organization & energy to power through it.”Jason & BlueDirecting Team
“Each time Grey House produces one of my projects, a load is taken off my psyche. I’m allowed to remain inspired, confident that unexpected turns to the creative direction will be navigated without stress.”Saverio TrugliaPhotographer
“Hannah is the most personable, professional and upstanding producer that I’ve ever worked with. I’ve never had to worry about her dropping the ball, over committing herself, overcharging, or overlooking anything on our projects together. She’s that rare combination of people that are super on top of everything but also super friendly at the same time. She can be tough when I need her to be but overall is a sweetheart that my clients and crew adore. I know that if I’m lucky enough to get her on my job, that she’ll be “all in” and will make everything run smoothly.”Andy GoodwinPhotographer + Director

“My experience working with Grey House productions was entirely positive each time. I found Hannah and her team to be kind, professional, flexible, communicative and very welcoming. A good producer has to balance on a tightrope while juggling flaming batons in a hurricane and Hannah does this. Smiling. And gives you a warm cookie while she’s at it. I always am happy to recommend Grey House and will look forward to working with them again.”Liz Miller GershfeldVP, Executive Art Producer at Energy BBDO
“I can't say enough good things about Hannah! I worked with Hannah on a three-day shoot for BBDO/Ziploc. Hannah was incredibly personable, organized and thorough. She was able to keep us on schedule for the entire shoot and organized the production team with ease. I can't wait to work with her again!”Lucy HewettPhotographer
“Recently I had the distinct pleasure of working with Hannah on quite a complex project. Hannah was kind, creative and crazy on top of the entire production. She is a natural! It is often overlooked how very hard the producer works to keep things calm, on task and on time. Hannah managed that and more with the grace of a seasoned professional. Get her on your team and watch the magic happen.”BJ PleckiProp Stylist
“I have had the pleasure of working with Hannah and I must say that she is an exceptional producer. She is smart, thoughtful, and a great problem solver. You can see how much she enjoys her work and the attention she gives to ensure the success of a project. But, most importantly, Hannah truly likes “people" and that comes through with her warm and friendly personality. She is someone who will go the extra mile to help any one of her clients. And, who wouldn't want that? So, if you are looking for a great producer and a wonderful experience, I would highly recommend Grey House Productions.”Doug TruppeOwner of Doug Truppe Represents

“I just wanted to take minute to thank you for an absolutely amazing production. Despite the challenges along the way and throughout the day, and all the cards we were dealt to deal with, you all made this one of the most easy-going and fun productions I've had the pleasure to work on. I couldn't have asked for a more flexible, accommodating, and positive-minded group of people to take this project on with; you all had only good vibes and great attitudes about the entire thing and that was more important and essential than you can imagine in helping us make this happen as an agency team.”Mattison BeckerArt Producer at Digitas Health
