Catherine is interested in exploring the real issue of visual talent...

how one can tell a story with pictures, colours, feelings and impressions embedded in the final images... communication on a sensitive artistic level through a strong technical acuity and attention to the subtle details.

 

She is a demo artist for the major equipment manufacturers and participates

in broadcast industry trade shows around the world.

 

She has had the unique opportunity of working on both sides of our business: production/organizational aspects and post-production, with a

comprehensive knowledge of the total processes from data, film to video, to delivery of a quality final product. Having experienced budget, crew,

production and post requirements gives her a considerable advantage when dealing with clients. Having had this type of first hand, practical experience, gives her the ease and information with which to communicate and to understand client needs and practical limitations, all in the interest of

producing the best quality programming possible within budgetary and time constraints. On-set colouring for tv and features is the evolution, interest and challenge.

 

Above all is the aim: Creative Storytelling - whether 30 sec. or a feature film.
