Talk shop over coffee with WIFTV members and friends. Whether you are a producer, directors, screenwriters, actors, or someone who wants to know more about the industry, the William F. White Networking Coffee is a great way to meet a variety of different people in the film and television community in Vancouver.
This month's guest speaker will be composer and musician, Red Heartbreaker. Red will be talking about her experience and career path becoming a composer as well as what kind of work she finds fascinating and inspiring.
Red was deeply honoured to accept Leo Award nominations for Best Original Score in a Motion Picture for her work in 'White Raven' (Directed by Andrew Moxham - White Buffalo Films) and for 'Charlotte’s Song' (starring Iwan Rheon & Katelyn Majer - Done Four Productions) culminating in a win for the latter picture - along with her music team colleague Maya Saxell, they were the first female composers ever to win a Leo award in that category.
She has additionally been recognized with a Best Music gong at the 2017 Seattle Web Fest for her work in the 2016 web series Telegraph Cove. Recently Red was selected as the panel favourite at the 2017 Whistler Film Festival’s inaugural blind composition challenge, featuring such esteemed panelists as Janine Scalise Boyd (VF Music, Starz Entertainment) Tony Scudellari (SVP TV Music, Sony TV) and Julie Weitz (EP/President, Carol Mendelsohn Productions/Sony Pictures Television).
