It is with both heavy hearts and excited anticipation that we announce the departure of our friend, colleague, and Rock Creek family member, Aimie Burns, as she embarks on the next adventure of her career. Aimie is moving on from Rock Creek at the end of this week as she has accepted an exciting new position as a Producer/Editor with Discovery Education’s Corporate Education Partnerships Video Hub.
During her time with Rock Creek, just a few of Aimie’s highlights include filming on the nuclear submarine USS Boise and the USS San Jacinto, a Ticonderoga-class cruiser, experiencing the everyday workings of the TSA, filming car-chase scenes with the Border Patrol, spending weeks filming training with Air Force firefighters (and then donning bunker gear afterwards), filming on the Waccamaw River from kayaks, photographing infants for the USDA, and of course her many years of award-winning work with the United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County
Of course, we would be remiss not to mention Aimie’s Emmy nomination for her documentary, Peace Through Education: Stealing the Light, about Mohammad Khan Kharoti and his mission to build a school for boys and girls in his war-torn home village of Shin Kalay, Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
We know that Aimie is at just the beginning of a long, exciting career and will go on to do great things! We at Rock Creek are proud to have played a part in her growth as a producer, filmmaker, editor, and overall wonderful person – and we’re appreciative of her significant part in the growth and success of Rock Creek over the past dozen years. We’ll miss you, Aimie and wish you the best of luck on your new adventures! Don’t forget the little people!
