First Name Lisa
Last Name Roti
Your Film Roles Acting, Producer, Voice Acting, Television, Feature Films, Union, Actor

Actor Lisa Roti has TV credits that include co-starring roles on Amazon’s Utopia, NBC’s Chicago PD and Fox’s The Mob Doctor.

After a career-ending injury, Roti’s journey as a professional classical ballet dancer took a positive turn when she was cast as Jeremy Piven’s eye-catching dance instructor on Fox’s Cupid. Her most recent projects include a starring role in the upcoming thriller “Laundromat” and a “Best Supporting Actress” nod as Maria in indy-short Side Effects Directed by Jose Mutarelli. Lisa has spent significant time working with local filmmakers (producer, casting,  locations) to build community and gain a deeper working knowledge of exactly what it takes to produce her own artistic offerings.

Lisa Roti is also a noted jazz vocalist who has toured internationally including multiple trips to China as an American Artist Ambassador and part of President Barack Obama’s 100,000 Strong Initiative.

First Name Emerson
Last Name Cole
Your Film Roles Producer, Director, Cinematographer, Gaffer, Grip, Sound, Live Sound, Live Events, Television, Feature Films, Union

My name is Emerson Cole, a graduate of Columbia College Chicago. I have experience in many types of production mediums, including but not limited to film, TV, theatre, live events, industrials, and documentary work in various positions. I have been working steadily since graduation and want to continue doing so.

I have been working as a sound mixer since 2018 and have been growing my knowledge since. I really started to build out my sound resume in 2021 with the various types of jobs I was contracted for. I was sound mixer on a tier 1b feature film and worked with a boom operator. I recorded audio for interviews of celebrity artists for Amazon Music Rotation at Dreamville Festival, an indie TV show called Upside Brown where I controlled up to eight different wireless tracks and sometimes duel boom with my operator and myself, Chicago Marathon on the B camera team for a commercial for Abbott where I walked about 10 miles with my kit while capturing different subjects and ambient sound, and a documentary show on LG TVs called The Rivalries where I did interviews, Verite style, and boomed an entire lacrosse game for three and a half hours.

For a while, I have been growing my sound package. I currently am running a Sound Devices Mix Pre 10 ii, Schoeps CMIT 5U, two Lectrosonics LT/LR with Cos11d lavs, Røde NTG 3, and Røde Wireless Go II transmitters and receiver with Countryman B3 lavs. I own a Comtek transmitter and three receivers, two Denecke JB-1 Timecode boxes and Denecke TS-C timecode slate. I also have a relationship with Cinespace’s Second City Sound to rent from as well as other local rental houses if needed to rent.

Given my drive to learn, I want to make your project better by having such dedication to doing better. With my quick technical knowledge, I will be able to accomplish any task given to me.
