About Us

Lisa Corum is the proud founder of westmorelandfilms – a thriving, female-owned production company based in Charlotte, North Carolina. There’s always a challenge to be met in the world of commercial advertising with complex budgets, high-pressure stakes, and big personalities – so Lisa founded westmorelandfilms to help her clients calmly navigate those waters with ease while delivering excellence along the way.

Lisa dove head first into the world of commercial production over 25 years ago, mastering the fine arts of blocking traffic in the rain and balancing multiple trays of coffee for her colleagues while plowing through 16-hour days as a determined Production Assistant. Over the next few years she logged an eye-popping amount of hours on-set, working in nearly every production department until she eventually found her calling as a Producer – overseeing productions for select clients such as Bank of America, Time Warner Cable, Gatorade, Benjamin Moore, Duke Energy, Qualcomm, and many more.

Even though she geeks out on budgets, call sheets, and tight production schedules, her favorite production past time is and always-will-be the cultivation of the relationships she’s developed with her clients, agencies, directors, and production crews.

She approaches every new project with the goal of finding the perfect balance between art and commerce, by bringing a production in on time and under budget while striving for excellence on the screen. Each project is a new canvas. Selecting the perfect director for the job is akin to selecting the perfect color of paints for her empty canvas. Having worked with directors from all over the globe and in every genre known to humankind, she’s developed a deep well of collaborative talent.

Lisa is the proud founder of westmorelandfilms – a thriving, female-owned production company based in Charlotte, North Carolina. There’s always a challenge to be met in the world of commercial advertising with complex budgets, high-pressure stakes, and big personalities – so Lisa founded westmorelandfilms to help her clients calmly navigate those waters with ease while delivering excellence along the way.

 

When she’s not producing, she loves to travel with her husband and daughter. She never met an island she didn’t like – whether it’s ninety degrees and nestled in the Caribbean, or below freezing and located off the coast of Northern Europe – she draws inspiration from little plots of land rising from ocean waters.

EMILY CRITCHER

Production Manager

Emily once broke her ankle skydiving. Now, she lives a slightly milder yet surely adventurous life navigating film shoots and waterways.

 

With over 10 years of experience in film production, she is our in-house Production Manager at Westmoreland Films. When she’s not at her computer, she’s likely out on her paddle board exploring those waterways – tracking beaver activity or photographing a Great Blue Heron as it catches fish.

 

But don’t worry, if you want to talk budgets or boom poles, she’ll still answer on her handy Apple watch – but be warned – you might not be able to get off the call without hearing about the wildlife observations of the day.
