Here are some works I had a hand in producing, including research, interviews, story focus, creative briefs, working with our videographers on location, sometimes shooting, and closely collaborating with editors to deliver the final product.
Cris Derksen is a half-Cree, half-Mennonite electronic cellist who aims to create music that takes the instrument out of the concert hall and explores the intersection of contemporary and classical.
I co-produced, researched, interviewed Cris and Patrick Jordan (Eybler Quartet), and oversaw the editing process of this piece.
Music is Jasmine Netsena’s first language. The singer-songwriter almost gave up on her music career when she became pregnant. She didn’t know how she’d make the touring musician lifestyle work with a child. Then her daughter showed her that music is in their DNA.
I co-produced, researched, interviewed Jasmine and oversaw the editing of this video.
Choreographer Crystal Pite and writer and performer Jonathon Young were back at Banff Centre to workshop their next collaboration, Revisor. This video explores how the pair weave together dance and theatre as creative languages, to create performances that transcend traditional storytelling. In 2015, Crystal and her company, Kidd Pivot, were at Banff Centre to create and refine Betroffenheit co-created with Jonathon’s Electric Company Theatre.
Working collaboratively, I co-produced, researched and oversaw the editing of this video about their creative process.
This Spotlight video delves into the story behind the second largest Douglas Fir in Canada, Big Lonely Doug. I produced this video and interviewed author and journalist Harley Rustad during the 2018 Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival.
Blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer kayaked the Grand Canyon and filmmaker Michael Brown captured the journey on camera. I produced this video and interviewed the pair at the 2018 Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, where it took home the Grand Prize.
Jonathan Kawchuk is a musician and composer based in Toronto. During his time as a Banff Musician in Residence, composer Jonathan married two of his passions: music and the mountains, using 3D recording technology.
I co-produced, shot, researched and oversaw the editing of this video about his process.
Lisa Boivin is an interdisciplinary artist, bioethicist, and healthcare educator. A member of the Deninu Kue First Nation in Northwest Territories, Lisa is completing an arts-based thesis on Indigenous perspectives of wellness, and the disabling effects of colonialism.
Working collaboratively, I co-produced, researched and oversaw the editing of this video about her work.
One of the largest collections of Artists’ Books in Canada is tucked away in the Paul D. Fleck Library at Banff Centre. These works of art can be a different way to tell a story, make a statement, and have art be more accessible. They’re an interactive experience where you control the story, and how it unfolds.
I co-produced this video, shot and edited by Mike Bertin, showcasing some favourites in the collection.
Jesse Tungilik is an interdisciplinary artist based in Iqaluit, Nunavut, whose work challenges public preconceptions of Inuit art. I co-produced this video about Jesse’s work, and interviewed him when he joined us at Banff Centre this summer for a self-directed residency, where he experimented with 3D printing, bronze sculpture and resin.
