Emma Mankey Hidem

Founder & CEO
Emma has been producing media for over a decade, specializing 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, before virtual reality was even on the mainstream radar, and immediately fell in love with the medium's ability to transport audiences so in 2015 Emma launched SunnysideVR, a full service VR video production company where she creates virtual reality content for brands, as well as immersive journalism. Since launching her company she has worked with brands such as Mercedes, Estee Lauder, and Twitter, and is also working on several interactive multimedia journalism projects such as Caste Out, a doc about the lingering effects of the now-outlawed caste system in Nepal.
