We had the good fortune of connecting with Anneliese Salgado and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Anneliese, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Our clients love working with us because of our genuine enthusiasm and investment in their artistic vision, and our ability to collaborate with them to push the message and the media forward. Myself and Co-Founder Aaron Eisenberg have spent over a dozen years each developing an expertise in our respective fields that combines with lived experience as artists ourselves. We immediately see and analyze projects from our multiple vantage points as a result, and lean on these insights to guide our creative approach in such a way that meets goals, expectations and (very importantly!) budget. I am constantly influenced by my background as a painter, illustrator, and educator when producing anything creative for our production company – whether photo, video or experiential! This intersection of process, authenticity, and communication is definitely what helps Sound + Vision Co. stand out, and brings clients back again and again when they’re ready to make something great.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I love that every day I do something different! The nature of the work that Sound + Vision Co. does is always so varied thanks to our ability to tackle a wide range of creative projects. Some days I’m shopping and crafting, other days are about spreadsheets and calendars, and then there’s the time spent on set bringing all the pieces together.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
LA is the best – there’s literally always something to do and somewhere to go! It’s one of those cities where the tourist stuff is actually really fun to do, so absolutely go to the theme parks, take the movie studio tours, visit the museums, go to one of our championship teams’ home games…it’s all happening here. I live in the Arts District, which feels like the Coffee District actually, so I’d have to recommend a different coffee spot in the neighborhood for each day – Stumptown, Verve, Maru, Blue Bottle, Eightfold…I frequent them all! I’m also a big fan of taking spontaneous drives and recommend winding through the hills and canyons or along PCH taking in the views. Traveling through different parts of the city also gives you a chance to take part in something unexpected or make a new discovery there…it can be exciting!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I believe wholeheartedly in the power of mentorship when it comes to leveling up your skills and experiences – especially in the creative arts. It’s incredible to have an opportunity to gain perspective from people who are on a similar path as you but farther down the road. I’ve been fortunate enough to both learn from and form deep friendships with several people across art, museums and entertainment who have influenced or affected how I got to where I am today. In that spirit, I would like to highlight the Women in Animation Mentorship Program, which connects professionals around the world with mentors in the animation/vfx/games industries to inspire, guide, or accelerate their careers.
