As filmmakers, McCosh Films will strive to continue that handcrafted pride through hard work. Great effort will be taken to produce a beautiful product, making each project unique and custom.

Heather Peters | Contributing Producer
At an early age, Heather started realizing her passion for communications, from storytelling and writing to producing, reporting, and everything in between. With more than 20 years of writing and video-related experience, Heather feels right at home as long as a good story is being shared.
A graduate of the renowned Missouri School of Journalism, Heather started her career as a broadcast news reporter. Later, she worked in public relations & marketing and then spent several years in PR and corporate communications for Scripps Networks. In 2006, she ventured out on her own and discovered the depth and creativity of the freelance world. She’s penned local, regional, and national print articles, and written several episodes of national television series, including DIY Network’s Blog Cabin and its popular “Crashers” series (Bath Crashers, Kitchen Crashers, and Yard Crashers.) In addition, she enjoys casting for television productions and performing voiceovers. From 2012-2015, Heather, her husband Brad, and their two children lived in China. There, they learned Mandarin, served the poor, and quickly realized that American Chinese food is not authentic!
