About the Key Creatives:

Emma Eng - Director

Emma grew up just outside of Vancouver in little seaside White Rock. She's gotten pretty voyeuristically obsessed with the New York "alt-comedy" scene (AKA: the Surreal Humour Shorts section on Vimeo) and the LA comedy TV writers scene (AKA: a small group of 30k follower Twitter users). She really likes obnoxious theatrics and performative posturing and fake/smarmy people and pathetic sloppy cowards. She wants to be a real big girl TV writer someday. To her fellow Fourth Years: You guys are so thoughtful and passionate and I wish you all love and infinite good luck post-grad.

Clara Salameh - Producer

Clara Salameh has known of her passion for writing and directing films since the age of seven. Born in Lebanon and raised around the United States and the Middles East, Clara was influenced by every culture and way of life that she has been exposed to throughout the years. These experiences have molded her love for realism in film, and her drive to capture emotions in their rawest form.

Elis Fowler - Cinematographer

I grew up in a small village outside Bristol, UK. I moved to Vancouver for University and I'm currently in my final year in the Film Production Program. I’ve always had a fire inside me to make creative and captivating work in different types of art forms. In the near future I hope to make documentaries that showcase important issues and inspiring stories. A huge thank you to my lovely family who have supported me in doing what I love most.
