Name: Maria Morgunova
Lives in: Toronto, Canada
Occupation: Director, Producer, Camera Operator, Filmmaker and Editor
Unique traits: Originally I’m from Russia where I worked as a journalist, producer and film-director in Moscow. The last 5 years I have worked in Toronto as a camera operator, video-editor and a film-maker. I have a full fledged production house capability and can deliver from start to finish. I like documentaries. That’s my main interest. When I upgraded my education in Toronto Media and Film College I realised that average Canadians love to discover something new about their own country and its’ peoples - local scientists, artists, businessman and explore different types of questions for which they don’t have definite answers. I can offer simple stories about difficult topics. I like to entertain and to teach at the same time. I prefer to work with experts and recognizable specialists who can share unique information with the audience. During the last 5 years I have build a solid network of connections with well known people in Canada who can give me exclusive interviews and share fascinating facts or statistics. I'm looking for TV channels to cooperate and produce unique documentaries.
