A UBC film and theatre graduate, Amy is both a producer and cinematographer with a slate of successful short, feature and television projects. Why the Anderson Children Didn’t Come to Dinner (2003) premiered to great acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival. Sixty film festival screenings and numerous awards later, the film has aired on CBC, The Comedy Network and PBS. Subsequent shorts include Once a Fish (2005) for Citytv, which premiered at the Vancouver International Film Festival; Regarding Sarah (2006), which premiered at the Montreal World Film Festival and won best short at the 2007 Leo Awards; and The Saddest Boy in the World (2006), which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival — as well as at Slamdance, Rotterdam and Karlovy Vary — and for which Amy also served as director of photography. Both of the latter shorts also aired on CBC. She is the associate producer of the theatrical feature Mount Pleasant (2006). Television experience includes working as production manager and cinematographer for the first season of Bravo’s documentary series On Screen! , and the same roles on a recent documentary shoot in Haiti. In 2005, Amy attended the Berlinale Talent Campus as a cinematographer delegate where Kodak highlighted her work; in 2003 and 2007 she was a Leo Award nominee for Best Cinematography in a Short Drama and Best Short; and is the recipient of the Kodak Image Award at the Women in Film 2007 Spotlight Gala Awards. In 2006, Amy attended the Toronto Talent Lab, for which she created a self portrait which was chosen by Motorola to screen as one of two trailers at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival. Currently, Amy is developing feature documentaries — including the upcoming Dissolve — and dramas, as well as working on numerous projects as a director of photography. Hirsute, Amy’s latest short film as producer and director of photography, will be premiering at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival.
