Director / Producer / Writer
Cat lover and filmmaker for a couple of decades, Trish’s passion for storytelling led her to found STORYBOX Movies in 2015. In this venture, she is able to apply a diverse creative background in film and television ranging in projects from animated features to commercials.
Currently Trish is directing her first documentary feature, Me Mum & Willie, a Knowledge Network Original in addition to continually spearheading and supporting work on various corporate projects with clients she loves.
In 2018 she served as a story and talent producer on Network Entertainment’s eight-part documentary series The Age of AI with Robert Downey Jr. Hosted on YouTube Red, the series has received accolades for its visionary appeal, and episode 1 racked up nearly 43 million views by end of 2019. In 2017 she wrote and directed a short-documentary Save Space Nugget (now on YouTube), a story of one small town’s population in British Columbia whom worked to preserve the environmental integrity and sustainability of surrounding old growth forests amongst a prevalent logging industry on Vancouver Island. Additionally in 2017, Trish became a top 12 finalist in BC’s famous Crazy8’s festival for her short film My Blue Balloon.
Dating back to 2003, Trish attended the prestigious Producer’s Lab at the Canadian Film Centre and produced award-winning short dramatic film The Porcelain Pussy. During college she produced and directed documentary Mi Pasión, which was nominated for a Leo Award and won 3rd place at the BC Student Film & Video Festival.
Even as a youngster, Trish’s passion for filmmaking was evident. At the age of 16, she created and pitched Shaw Cable an idea for a TV-series based on improvisation. As a key producer to Sports Cast in its first three years of airing with Shaw and other cable networks across Canada, the series won various awards including ‘Best Youth Programming’ (and would go on to win 5 years in a row).
Her passion and path with filmmaking all started when her dad gave her his old video camera at the age of 12. She hasn’t looked back since.
Her formal qualifications (but she’s not very formal!) include a Master in Communications from Royal Roads University (2009), a certificate from the Producers Lab at the Canadian Film Centre (2003) in Toronto, and a Diploma from Capilano College’s Media Resources Program (1996).
Why Trish Founded
Story Box Movies
In 2008 when Trish’s mom was diagnosed with Dementia she knew their time together would be cut short. She knew she needed to do something to honor her mother and her memory that was quickly deteriorating. So she did a few things: she took time off from her career in the film & television industry, took her mom on a series of bucket list adventures, and she captured a legacy interview with her mother. Trish’s mom passed away in the fall of 2013, and this video is now her treasure. That journey led her to found STORYBOX ensuring she would be there for other families who want to capture their loved ones. STORYBOX is now a full-service boutique video production company specializing in purpose-driven corporate & family storytelling and Trish loves every minute of it.
I have added Trish to this email. Not one to toot her own horn so I will toot for her. When I met her (thanks CHull) I just knew this was someone who in our brand trajectory was not only going to execute a video for us but share a vision for how we can bring our products to life (tech, value prop, overall dang cool) through video. Trish, you are helping create our brand and we are so grateful for this. I am also grateful to call you a friend 😉
I want to express my appreciation to you. So glad that Mel brought you in our fold. It has been such a pleasure working with you and your team. You are so supportive, easy and thoughtful to work with. And, it was always evident how much you really cared about the content. That made a big difference not only to me but also to the experts being filmed. The best part of the videos was working with you. Truly. Thank you so much.
I would like to thank you VERY MUCH for your part in the award I received from Lindt for the BC/YK Athlete Trust. You did a wonderful job making me relax, (as much as was possible) on camera when you were doing the video at 8 skating rinks.
Thanks very much, if there is ever anything I can do to help you, please let me know!
