Save Space Nugget – The Movie

FullSizeRender

I recently branched out into a new area – location sound recording for film. It was for a documentary, ‘Save Space Nugget’, commissioned by Telus On Demand. The film chronicles how my own amazing community, Cumberland, BC, came together to save the forest that surrounds the village. You can watch the documentary here, and learn more about the incredible Cumberland Forest Society here.

Ahousaht: Story of a Skatepark

My feature documentary ‘Ahousaht: Story of a Skatepark’ aired recently on CBC1’s Unreserved. This was an incredibly fulfilling piece to make – it’s my first piece for Canadian radio and the CBC, and a wonderfully positive and uplifting story to boot. I also received fantastically supportive mentoring from Iris Yudai, Executive Producer of Unreserved, via the brilliant Doc Project. Listen online here, or even better, subscribe to the Unreserved podcast for your weekly dose of Indigenous community, culture and conversation.

First work for CBC

october-mentees

I am beyond thrilled to be currently producing my first radio documentary for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation! The finished doc will air on CBC1’s Unreserved, the radio space for Indigenous community, culture and conversation. And that’s not all – I was also lucky enough to be selected for CBC’s Doc Project Mentorship Program, which pairs veteran producers with emerging talent, and airs the resulting documentary on the CBC1 show, The Doc Project. My mentor is the  editor of Unreserved, Iris Yudai, who has over 20 years experience at CBC, and who I am enjoying working with immensely. Read all about me and my fellow mentees and our forthcoming documentaries here.

Poetry of Gold and Angels – BBC Radio 4

I researched and coordinated a recent BBC Radio 4 documentary about poetry in San Francisco, produced by the wonderful Laura Parfitt of White Pebble Media. It is a gorgeous programme, unfortunately no longer available to listen to online, but here’s the programme page anyway. Part two of the series, on the poetry of Los Angeles, can be heard here.

The Singing Instrument

On the day of an epic radio fail, here’s a reminder that I can also do a radio win…

This is the 10-minute feature that I produced for the Creative Radio strand of my MA programme at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

A little introduction: from Elgar to Bach, from pop to Klezmer: all have explored the beautiful and unique sound of the cello. In this montage-style documentary, two professional cellists reflect on sound, music, and their own personal relationship with this extraordinary instrument.

Many thanks to Francesca Ter-Berg and Matthew Forbes for lending their dulcet tones to the piece – and also to Arthur Russell and Edward Elgar for their beautiful music.
