In one year alone, Melani Wood was the Production Coordinator of 2020 Oscar nominated film, "The Lighthouse", Production Manager of 2020’s Canadian Screen Awards Best First Feature winner "Murmur" and Producer of the 2020 Best Atlantic Feature Award at the Atlantic International Film Festival for "Bone Cage".
Despite having a clearly established track record in fiction films, it’s the realm of documentary where Melani’s true passion lies. After Production Managing several feature length documentary films and multiple seasons of factual television like the History Channel’s "The Curse Of Oak Island", Melani has moved into Producing her own documentaries about topics and people she wishes to share with the world.
So far those titles include films which have premiered at Hot Docs, the largest documentary film festival in North America and Doc NYC, The American Documentary Festival in Palm Springs and 40+ other festivals worldwide. With a pilot for docu-series, "Do Words Matter", currently in production with CBC and a Feature Documentary sporting the working title, "Whale Movie", in pre-production, Melani is just getting started on her journey of making the world a more kind place to be, one movie at a time.

In the commercial sphere Kevin has been fortunate to work alongside superbly talented people lensing work for brands: Walmart, Lays, McDonalds, Sport Chek, Canadian Tire, Toyota and Tourism Ads for every province in the Maritimes.

If forced to pick only one medium, Kevin might choose directing & shooting Documentaries. With two TV hour length films and several short docs under his belt, he's seen two nominations from the CSC for Best Documentary Cinematographer, The award for Best Atlantic Short Documentary at AIFF, a Vimeo Staff Pick badge and Official Selections at Hot Docs, DOCNYC and the American Documentary Festival for non-fiction work he has directed so far.
When not on the road filming, Kevin can be found canoeing in the small fishing village he calls home and, of course, daydreaming about the next project.
