Emma Mankey Hidem Principal
Emma knew she wanted to work in media production since she was an adolescent, and started out on that path by attending high school at the Perpich Center for Arts Education with a focus in media arts. She then went on to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a major in Film & Television Production. Since graduating from Tisch in 2007, Emma has worked in non-fiction media of all kinds, including documentary, news, corporate, and interactive media. She has had the privilege to work with and learn from talented documentarians such as Ross Kauffman (Born Into Brothels) and Joe Fab (Paper Clips). Through her work in interactive media for museums, she learned to film 360° video in 2013 and fell in love with the medium. In 2015 Emma realized that dream by launching SunnysideVR, a full service VR video production company where she creates both virtual reality content and traditional video content.
