The very first sound job I received when I moved to Vancouver was working on an independent film called FSM, or Female Seeking Male. The film was written and directed by Melanie Jones for the Indiecan10K Challenge, which challenges film makers to create there vision with a meager $10,000 budget.
In the continued spirit of helping artists realize their potential, the post production studio I was hanging around last December threw this film at me to see what I could do. It opened the door for me into working as a dialogue editor and I’ve continued to work on projects with The Mix Room since. I’m very grateful to have had a hand in this film, and am very excited to announce its upcoming world premier at the Whistler Film Festival on December 3rd.
The film stars Vanessa Crouch as Sam, a Vancouver-based DJ who is looking for love in the age of social media. It is full of great imagery of East Vancouver and Kitsalano, and features music from ten Vancouver based indie bands and musicians. I had a lot of fun working on it, and this film will hold a special place in my heart as my first “real world” audio job. I won’t be able to make it up to Whistler to see the premier, but I’m hoping it will be playing at part of the International Women in Film Festival in March 2016.
