More than a week later and I'm still in shock over Giver winning the 2018 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Education or Informational Series. A true team effort and one that I was so happy and thrilled to be a part of as a producer/director/writer and co-developer of the series. Go team go! #letsgiver
If you ask enough people for directions, you'll find out how to get to Sesame Street! I've loved making independent films for Sesame over the past year, and was invited to set to check out the magic- and got to meet these two loveys in the process. :)
I had the pleasure of living out the ultimate tween girl dream the other week by directing Annie and Haley LeBlanc from Bratayley and Paris and Isabel from Alexa and Katie in the ultimate best friend showdown!
When I found out that Giver (Season 3!) was nominated for a Daytime Emmy I called my co-producer Rennata in a state of complete shock to figure out if it was real. Congrats to the whole team at Sinking Ship Entertainment on this and their other multiple nominations! What an honour for the little show that could with the help of thousands of great folks from around Ontario! Leeets Giver!
Math Styles- Episode 3! Use math to make an awesome hair net with this tutorial produced/directed by Jen and myself!
Math Styles Episode 2! Check out how to make a spiral braid with this tutorial that Jen and I produced! We wanted this web series to show off how math and hair are related! Enjoy!
Math Styles Episode 1!! Jen and I are so excited for our latest sweet little web series called “Math Styles” - combining math lessons in a hair tutorial style! <3 Enjoy!
WOO HOO! Giver 150 (Season 4!!) launches today on TVOKids!
I was lucky enough to direct three eps this upcoming season (BC/PEI, AB/SK and Newfoundland/Labrador) - and even got to do some construction on the mine play structure in the Northwest Territories section of the playground- lol.
Huge shoutouts to the whole team at Sinking Ship and especially producer Rennata López for making this incredible playground come to life!! It’s huge!! Go see it if you’re in Ottawa (at Mooney’s Bay!)
The YMA holds a special place in my heart, as they totally let me volunteer at all of the galas in the past when I was a either a student, or a credit-less producer wannabe. <3
Got the opportunity to write this little piece for Sterling K. Brown. I was inspired by the many emotions he portrays on “This is Us”. Emotions are an actor’s best friend!
Happy Halloween! Had so much fun making this trick or treating video with the team for our “Spooky Side Up” stunt!
Space Week is one of my favourite weeks at Sunny Side Up! Check out this awesome planets song we created for the occasion! Props to the whole team for making this out of this world! (Hiyo!)
Just in time for National Bow Tie Day! Jen and I released Mo’s Bows to the public! After over 35 film festivals from as nearby as BAM to as far away as Doha, Qatar - we’ve had a great time showing this incredible film off! If you love it, we’d love if you shared! :)
This commercial for Comcast aired throughout the Olympics and included the one and only Chica getting a kiss from a kiddo from a shoot I directed! All of us at Sprout were thrilled! :)
