Barry Atkins - Founder / Director

From London, England to Houston, TX (via Poland, Qatar, Oman and Dubai) - I've been writing, producing, directing and editing films for nearly ten years - and during my 18 years in Higher Education, I helped do the same for well over 500 student films. Everything from short narrative and documentary to corporate video, PSAs, web content and more. So I know a thing or two about what makes a good story. But the best part about doing what I love - teaching filmmaking to some amazing students, and applying my video production skills to client projects - is that I get to keep learning every day. I can't wait to welcome you to Echo!

Laura Waldusky - Co-Founder

Where to begin? I appreciate good design in all its forms and functions. If you give me a business card, I will inwardly assess its kerning / leading / tracking / typeface / alignment. I believe in doing good work. Period. Specialties: Branding and identity, typography, illustration. Higher Education instruction and curriculum/assessment development. And art. Lots of art.
