First Time Filmmaker Sessions and our 1st Live Screening!

BlkLaurelsFirstTimeSessions.pngGreat news everyone! My short, No Where has also been accepted into the First Time Filmmakers Session, March 24, 2019. This is part of the Lift Off Sessions and will be available on Vimeo-On-Demand (keep an eye on our social media for the viewing link). The first round, like the Global Sessions, is based on public votes so please lend us your support!

I also joined WIFTV here in Vancouver and No Where was accepted to be part of this months WIFTV/DOC BC/Cineworks Showcase March 27, 2019. I will be participating in the Q&A afterwards.

Still can’t believe how many good things are constantly happening since I moved to Vancouver. But the truth of it is, It’s not that good things come to those who wait, it’s that good things come to those who put time and energy into making opportunities for themselves.  I just need to get out there and keep on creating.

Finally Claimed my IMDB page

I just claimed and updated my IMDB page, so hopefully it doesn’t take them too long to approve my credits. That was way overdue. You can always check out my list of credits here as well!

Next steps here in Vancouver are more networking and rewriting a short script I want to shoot by the end of the year, or next summer at the latest. Fingers crossed for lots of good news in the future!

All the Best.

Good News, Marching Forth

I am excited to announce that as of March 4th, 2019 my transfer to Local 891 has gone through and I am now a full member of Local 891 in British Columbia.

I am currently available for long term or daily calls.  Looking forward to seeing you all on set.


I have also added an availability section to my website ( though on a day to day basis the IATSE database will most likely be the most reliable if you are looking to hire me for dailies or ASAP calls.


In other good news, An Audience of Chairs, which I had the privilege to work on back in 2017 is getting a limited theatrical release across Canada tomorrow at select Landmark Cinemas and I just bought tickets.  ( )  I am super excited to finally get the chance to see this beautiful film myself and really hope the limited release does so well they get an extended run. Fingers Crossed! And so many congratulations so Deanne Foley, the director, who was an absolute pleasure to work.

Til my next update.


IMDB and other updates

It’s official, my short “No Where” now has a page on IMDB. There’s not much on the page that has been approved yet, but it’s there and I’m listed as a director! Check it out.

In other good news, we have started submission to some film festivals. Not sure if anything will come of it, but fingers crossed.  We have also started setting up some social media for the short. We now have a Facebook page, and “No Where” will be coming soon to Twitter and Instagram. Keep an eye here or on the Facebook page for those.

Things continue to go well in Vancouver, and I am looking forward to when I can share some of my other exciting updates and milestones.

Go Team!

Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse

We were lucky enough to have a clear sky and an unobscured view up until the Zenith. So I set up my camera on the balcony and got some footage. I threw together a small edit, speeding up the footage about 1200%.  I got a few pictures of the red moon but I am still sorting through and coming up with a watermark for photos I am going to be posting.

In similar news, I am setting up a basic page on my website for the photography and videography I do occasionally. Once I get some photos with a water mark I will get a link posted for that.  If you want to check out any past videography (live shows, fire, etc) you can check me out at

The Transfer to BC

I am currently standing by on call for IATSE 891 Script Supervising calls as a Sister Local, and as far as I know my transfer card is in the mail.

I have a new phone number, so if you need to contact me and have old information send me an email (unchanged) or mosey over to my Contact page and send me a note requesting my updated info.

I am looking forward to continuing to work with IATSE out here on the Wet Coast.
