About Alanna

I am a video editor and filmmaker based in the Greater Toronto Area, with a BFA in Film Production from York University. My passion for storytelling, instinctual sense of rhythm and fondness for science fiction and fantasy genres are what drive me the most. I take pride in finding creative, compelling and entertaining ways to bring stories to life.

Unique traits: I'm passionate about geek and pop culture! In addition to filmmaking I also write for a geek entertainment magazine and my hobby is cosplay. Give me a couple weeks and $80 of craft materials and I can build a screen-accurate suit of armour.
