Film, Research & Education

Working with Maren Wickwire and Manifest Media was a dream. Not only did Maren dedicate herself to the work and the project, but her ideas greatly added to the original concept we had. She showed deep dedication to the content of our project, and worked tirelessly to realize our vision. The final product is wecameback.org. We are looking for ways to continue to work with Manifest Media. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Our Partners and Clients

Maren’s work is absolutely excellent in editing and design. She is incredibly collaborative, responsible, and creative. She understands large concepts and small details and cares about all of them - and she makes hard work seem fun. I would like to work with her forever!

Maren Wickwire visited my postgraduate course “Museum Studies” in the Spring semester of 2018 and taught a two-part workshop to the students. The workshop focused on how one can tell stories about objects with the use of video. Maren was a calm, confident and inspiring speaker who motivated the students to tell their own stories about their chosen objects. Despite the fact that the students of this course are art history MA students with no or limited previous filming experience, Maren made the whole process seem simple and encouraged personal stories and approaches to telling stories. It was a wonderful experience for the students and especially for me.
