Kate has tremendous depth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of television production, and she also makes it her business to become an expert in whatever her assigned “beat” may be. I don't think there is any story too complex or any deadline too unforgiving for her to handle. She is among the best in the business.
I highly recommend Kate Tobin as a storyteller, videographer, editor and producer because she's simply excellent at all those tasks. I should know. She produced more than 330 episodes of a STEM video series I managed for a decade.
You learn a lot about someone over the course of that many years: work ethic, creativity and ability to work with strong personalities in all kinds of situations, etc. She planned and executed video shoots and interviews all over the U.S. for this series, including Alaska. She even went to Greenland. She coordinated all aspects of the shoots, shot the footage, conducted the interviews, wrote the stories — on glaciers, in deserts, on rivers, in tiny labs in the middle of nowhere and in one-of-a-kind science facilities — and she brought home the projects on time and within budget.
No one works harder for a client from pre-production to crossing that last “t” than Kate Tobin. No one. It's easy to see her range by scanning the STEM topics in the series she produced for us: Science Nation. What you won’t see are all the inevitable problems that she solved along the way. No matter how much planning goes into a video shoot, something and sometimes many things always go differently. Kate makes sure they don’t go wrong.

Kate is simply one of the best video producers I’ve had the pleasure of working with — incredibly detailed in her planning and execution, on top of the myriad of materials needed to complete a story and always offering constructive feedback during the course of a project. She can make complex and technical information into very relatable stories for the general public. I wholeheartedly would recommend Kate to lead a media production project.

I would highly recommend Kate as a manager, editorial lead, creative problem-solver and stellar researcher.
