I'm Children Film Artist, Producer and Educator. I specialize in stop frame animation, live action short, music video, short docs. I work in schools, daycares and children's summer camps running filmmaking programs and workshops since 2010. Also I operate small animation studio for kids at home, located in East York. I work in partnerships with various educational institutions and organizations, including TDSB, TCDSB, City of Toronto, Toronto Public Library, Churches, Community Centres and Social Kids Clubs in GTA.
Thoughts About Art and Community
I promote, encourage and develop creative activities of children and youth in FILM. Over 300 Short Films Made by Kids were produced in GTA with my supervision and support. Many of those films were selected, nominated and awarded at film festivals around the world, including TIFF. As a result of my work, I see many young people transform from passive viewers to active filmmakers.
I offer filmmaking programs and workshops for kids, outdoor street film festivals for children, mentorship and residencies at school.
