About the Key Creatives:

Clara Salameh - Director

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.

Sean Patterson - Producer

Sean Patterson is a graduate from the Film Production program at the University of British Columbia, interested in a career in writing for television and directing. Originally from Jamaica and born in the United States, Sean grew up in Switzerland, where she studied film studies in high school. Sean has taken strides to begin her career in film and television over the course of five years, with internships in Ghanaian television, working for Technicolor's Moving Picture Company, serving as editor both at a video production company for commercial shoots and for global livestream events, as well as learning about Vancouver's industry, being an extra on several network television series.

Emma Eng - Cinematographer

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.
