captured on video to become a lasting legacy
A PERSONAL HISTORY VIDEO interview with Jennifer can be one of the best ways to tell your life story – or to capture your loved ones’ stories. It can also prove to be a true family treasure.
Jennifer is also ready to produce a wide range of VIDEO FEATURES and VIDEO PROFILES on you and your work. For example, if you’re an artist, Jennifer can capture compelling footage of you at work in your studio and conduct sensitive and thoughtful interviews that allow your work to be better understood.
Either way, you’ll find Jennifer easy to talk to – she’s got a naturally friendly approach and a genuine interest in people.
She’s also a skilled interviewer who knows what’s she’s doing.
Jennifer has close to twenty-five years experience in television production for CBC Television, for the University of Saskatchewan, and as a freelancer.
During her CBC career alone, for CBC Television in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Jennifer interviewed and produced feature stories on people from all walks of life, from eminent Canadian cultural figures like singer-songwriter Jann Arden, writer Guy Vanderhaeghe, and abstract painter William Perehudoff, to Hollywood movie stars like Meg Ryan, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Christopher Reeve. She’s also talked to ranchers, outdoor enthusiasts, home-based artisans, and collectors crazy for everything from dolls to barbed wire.
Also, for the University of Saskatchewan, Jennifer produced a video series to profile the fascinating lives and work of leading researchers and synchrotron scientists. (And if you have no idea what a synchrotron is, this explanation from Jennifer’s interview with a nine-year-old future scientist will set you straight.)
Even those who think they don’t have much to say may find they have many more stories to share than they expected since so much comes down to having the right person ask the right questions. At the right time. Which could be… now.
