Kohl Threlkeld

Kohl Threlkeld is co-founder and Creative Director of Emic Films. Leaving his previous life as a photojournalist, Kohl has established a reputation for producing story-driven commercial projects for clients across the globe. When he isn’t Directing or behind the camera, he is chasing his other passions such as motorcycles, travel and his one eyed cat he brought back from Haiti.

 

Creative Director

Jon Bougher is the Co-founder and Executive Producer at Emic Films. With a background in documentary film production, Jon has produced video projects in over 20 countries. Jon leads Emic’s original content effort as well as directs all post-production.

Executive Producer

Jonathan Kim

Jonathan Kim is a jack of all trades at Emic Films. Originally from St. Louis, he came to Washington, DC to work in politics. Not finding that to his liking, he switched careers for filmmaking and has been loving it ever since. Jonathan serves as producer behind the scenes and AC/Cam op and just about anything else on set. When he’s not working, he’s taking care of his beloved pet- a sourdough starter that just had its third birthday.

Producer

Leah Beilhart

Leah is an award winning photographer who has worked in over 20 countries. She joined Emic Films in 2018 as a Photographer and Producer. When she is not running around on set with Emic, she is busy with her personal project Beholdher.co, an organization supporting women through storytelling, mental health awareness, and personal development in D.C.

What’s a creative content studio?

Glad you asked. The line between production companies and agencies is blurring, and we’re standing on that line. We’re not just a content factory, we are creatively involved in the entire process from conception to completion. That means we work with brands to translate their ethos

into beautiful and thoughtful visuals to compliment their marketing strategies. That also means you can come to us and say, “we have no idea what we want” and we’ll kick out a stellar video that’s on brand, on message and under budget.
