Stranger Productions collaborates with many incredible talents. Here are a few recent and longtime partners that we especially appreciate.
Stuart has collaborated on a number of different projects, most recently teaming up with Stranger Productions for the Shane Koyczan’s documentary titled ‘Shut Up And Say Something' which premiered at VIFF and was awarded Most Popular Canadian Documentary.
Jenny has contributed to community outreach for many projects, coordinated a 30 city, self-supported film tour across Canada by bicycle and spoken around the world in support of the messages behind her documentaries.
Since then she has directed, written and produced documentaries on a wide range of subjects, from intimate biographies to explorations of health, medical and cultural issues. Of all the awards on her shelf, the most meaningful is the Gemini Award for Best Biography Documentary for Peace Warrior, her documentary about Canadian soldier Trevor Greene.
As the executive producer of Dreamfilm Productions, Sue has overseen the creation of 18 documentaries to date. Dreamfilm’s five previous documentaries for CBC Television’s The Nature of Things have won many awards, including two Gold and two Silver World Medals at the New York Festivals, and the Science Journalism Award from the Canadian Science Writers’ Association.
Slinger began her career as a reporter, first for newspapers, then television. In naming her one of BC’s 100 Most Influential Women, the Vancouver Sun said, “Helen Slinger’s filmmaking is all about taking a grabber of an event and turning it on its head. She deliberately digs deeper, looking for real meaning beneath surface shock.”
Raised in Saskatoon, Helen Slinger has lived in Toronto, Victoria BC, and now resides in North Vancouver.
She has been a board member for the Documentary Organization of Canada, where she launched Doc Shadows, a mentoring program for new filmmakers that remains popular today. She is a graduate of Emily Carr College of Art and Design, and the Canadian Film Centre in Toronto. And if you’re wondering where Eunice kicked off her career, it was in Hong Kong… assembling news clips for Cathay Pacific Airways’ in-flight entertainment. And you thought TV wasn’t glamorous.
His photographs of post-conflict Liberia (where he grew up) and award-winning documentary film and online photo project Liberia 77, about the war-torn country reclaiming its photographic and cultural legacy, were featured at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles and in the first post-war photographic exhibition at the National Museum in Monrovia.
For the past three years, Jeff has been working as Photographer-in-Residence for Canadian based adventure company One Ocean Expeditions, documenting numerous voyages to Antarctica and the Canadian Arctic.
