(Sometimes Mary) Caroline Rogers is a vibrant intellectual, bringing her talents primarily to the video side of Arland Communications. She fell in love with film a long time ago, and is happy and lucky enough to have turned her childhood passion into a career. She started off as a performer, where she found a love of music and visual storytelling that fueled the curiosity that landed her in this industry.
Caroline attended Butler University, graduating in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Digital Media Production, specializing in Art + Design. Since graduating, she’s been on quite an adventure, filming all over the world and wearing all sorts of different professional hats. From working in a local brewery, to operating a crane at CBS/Fox News, filming weddings all over the country, and working as both a choreographer and shooter on several music videos, she’s been all over the place, taking in as much experience as she can. She’s been able to work for some big names, including National Geographic, Coke Zero and Acura; but also for small, nameless projects fueled by passion and little else. The world is full of amazing things, and her dream is to capture a little of it all.
Endless curiosity and tenacity are the two things that really make Caroline who she is. She constantly pushes herself to learn more, to be better, to achieve a higher standard. Some might even go so far as to call her a nerd, a title she wears proudly. More than anything, she refuses to believe that her best days are behind her, ever searching for that next brilliant spark. She loves to tell stories, and loves to watch them come to life in video editing.
In her free time, she travels as much as she can, dances with friends, explores the outside world with her dog Sadie, spends too much time watching horror films, and writes like mad. With tons of creative energy to burn off, she’s excited for the future and the opportunity to be a part of the Arland family.
