“Malia McMullen is a gifted and creative choreographer who works just as well inside the box as outside. She was integral in the creation of movements and postures utilized in our project. Malia demonstrated her acting skills in front of the camera, and the directors made her the focus because of her star quality. In multiple scenes. She brought professionalism, diligence, compassion, and fire to our project everyday.”
– Joe Strechay; Co-Producer for Apple See
