Lightfield Media was founded by Susie Arnett, a veteran of the television and media business who spent over 15 years working with many of the top companies in the field like Viacom, Universal and Warner Brothers in both Los Angeles and New York City.
Now, as an independent producer and consultant, Susie Arnett specializes in translating both individual and corporate brands into books, television and film, digital content, and games. As a consultant, her clients are experts in their field and creators of groundbreaking and life-changing content. She supports and facilitates their ability to navigate the media landscape and expand their media presence in the popular culture. In addition to advising clients on overall strategy, she helps clients with creative development, branding, and financing.
Prior to working as a consultant, she was the VP of Programming for Lifetime Television where she was responsible for supervising all program development for a spin-off channel targeted at women 12 – 34. After that, she went to work for Barry Diller as VP of Programming to develop the station group, Studios USA, into a viable network. Working entrepreneurially inside these large organizations, she was able to work with advertisers, cable operators and creatives to bring programming to market without selling out the soul of the idea.
As an executive producer, she has brought to air both documentary and non-fiction programming like the award-winning documentary NAKED STATES for HBO and MTV’s HOUSE OF STYLE. She has also produced entertaining, prime time programming for ABC, The WB, and Telepictures Television.
In publishing, she has authored Born Yogis with Doug Kim, a charming coffee table book published by Rodale Press, that documents how we all begin life as little yogis and yoginis. Also, she was the editor of “Coyote Goes Global”, published by O Books, and is currently editing “Parenting in Pictures”, a groundbreaking look at how we can use the mechanics of quantum physics to improve our family relationships.
She is passionate about bringing good ideas to the masses. And about helping the masses bring their good ideas to the world.
