    Created in 1999, Hemlock Films is a full-service production company, producing projects from concept to finished piece. Our specialty at Hemlock Films is Aviation Cinema. We couple our award-winning story telling with state-of-the-art cinematography tools to create stunning cinematic imagery for award-winning nationally broadcast films, commercials, web videos, and specialty theater films.

    Hemlock Films’ most recent productions are Rise Above: WASP, a short film for the Commemorative Air Force and their traveling educational experience and Emmy winning Space Chase USA airing nationally on PBS. Also airing nationally on PBS is our television docu-series titled The Restorers about people who restore vintage aircraft to tell the stories of the past, (broadcast internationally on History, PBS UK). Hemlock has also produced Beyond the Powder for PBS, a documentary about the legacy of the first woman’s cross-country air race and the women who continue to race today. Beyond the Powder has received Emmy nominations in the categories of Writing, Directing, and Research. It is currently broadcasting nationally on PBS.

    Hemlock Films has also produced the film for the mobile educational experience called Rise Above: Tuskegee Airmen for the CAF Red Tail Squadron, and a web series for Texas Flying Legends narrated by Mike Rowe. Our other feature length aviation titles include Red Tail Reborn, and the 2003 film The Restorers that inspired our new TV series of the same name.

    With our poetic storytelling style and cinematic aerial photography, our skilled and experienced team provides Hollywood-quality work. Our documentaries have aired worldwide on the network television stations History, PBS, Discovery, Discovery Europe and National Geographic.

  • Amy Lauria, the president of Spotlight Business Solutions, has been working as a social media marketing and website ninja since 2005 when she started volunteering at the Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing. The museum was looking for someone to help bring their online presence to the next level and she volunteered.

    Amy officially joined the Wing as a member and took on the role of Museum Officer in 2005. She has since served as Executive Officer, Wing Leader, PX Officer, Public Information Officer, and most recently as Development Officer. She has been involved with running the Wing in many capacities and continues to develop new ways to operate the museum.

    Amy and her husband, Jim, met and married at the museum, and spend a significant amount of time working on various museum projects. The family involvement has allowed for additional focus on the CAF, as well as helping outside organizations. Amy’s experiences have allowed her the chance to support and help with fundraising, events, museum displays and more for many non-profits. She has also joined up with Kara White to host Air Raid Radio, an online radio show about women’s contributions to aviation.
