About Sheila Haya
Filmmaking and Photography have become key factors in utilizing my creative strengths as well as organizational skills. I am someone with a passion for people and storytelling that is matched by a hungry work ethic.
I am fascinated by the stories that images both moving and still, can tell of people, culture, and music, and it is this passion for storytelling that led me to major in journalism at Baruch College, where I focused on multimedia reporting and filmmaking. I thrive in a team oriented atmosphere and truly enjoy collaborating to complete stories that are rich in perspective.
I have hands on experience heading productions, handling scouting, logistics, and organizing entire crews, as well as being a production coordinator/assistant with the ability to complete tasks with speed and diligence. I understand how crucial it is to problem solve while being tactful. These experiences have given me an ability to work intimately with people and take the steps necessary to make sure production runs smoothly.
