The Creator Class hosted some of our own for an intimate panel discussion with creators Rosanna Peng, Due Pinlac, Dani Reynolds, and Adam Madrzyk in the Canon Creator Lab. Moderated by Monica Heisey, the four independently successful creatives shared their experiences of levelling up as visual storytellers with a crowd of 150 of their peers. We had them focus in on the past 3-5 years of their careers – from building the right relationships to growing their technical expertise.
Rosanna is an accomplished video director and editor. Since moving her career from Toronto to Los Angeles, Rosanna has worked worked with brands like J.Crew, New Balance, and Hypebeast.
Adam launched his professional career as a commercial, music video, and narrative cinematographer while simultaneously finishing his university degree. Recently signed to Sesler Management agency, Adam has already completed his first short bio pic GUION.
Due made the move from Vancouver to Toronto to pursue his career as an editor. Over the years, he has grown into an accomplished cinematographer and director. Due continues to thrive as a multi-disciplinary talent in the media space.
Dani has an aesthetic that fits the time. As an art director, her work with collective Kastor & Pollux is a natural progression to showcase her innovative take on creative direction for everything from live art installations to still photography.
Monica is a writer and comedian from Toronto. She has written for shows like Baroness von Sketch and Schitt’s Creek and contributed as a writer/editor for Vice, Gawker, The New Yorker, The Globe & Mail and more.
