About Iris Ng

Iris Ng is recognized as a versatile cinematographer, who lends her patience, creativity, intuition, and skill to bring a director’s vision to the screen. For over a decade, Iris has collaborated with award-winning directors Sarah Polley, Min Sook Lee, Fredrik Gertten, Vikram Jayanti, Michelle Latimer, and Martha Burns on a variety of documentaries while shooting a wide variety of films for artists such as Chris Curreri, Oliver Husain, Bambitchell, and Richard Fung.

Iris was intrigued at an early age by the photos and Super 8 movies that were created and preserved by the image-makers in her family. That discovery – that it is possible to capture the essence of a moment – has become a lifelong influence in her creative work.

After obtaining her BFA in Film Production from York University, she has honed her craft shooting over sixty projects in many facets of the industry, from narrative, art and documentary films to commercials, music videos and episodic television. In the process, she has had the opportunity to work in Asia, Africa, Europe, and across North America.

Iris brings a visual arts background to the projects she works on – which allows her to approach the work abstractly and conceptually, before tapping into the technical skills required to bring a director’s vision to screen. Iris is known for her intuition and patience balanced by strong technique.

She is equally comfortable working in the latest digital formats as well as 35mm, 16mm and Super 8 film, according to the needs of the story or concept. While her work has been screened in festivals and installations around the world, Iris’ goal continues to be to capture the essence of the moment in the medium, regardless of the size of the project.

Getting ready for the event

We encourage all participants to watch some of Iris Ng’s work before the masterclass in order to make the most of the session and Q&A. Some of the films that be referenced include:

Nuuca (2018), directed by Michelle Latimer. Watch online on Field of Vision.
A Better Man (2017), directed by Attiya Khan. Watch online on TVO.
this river (2016), direced by Erika MacPherson and Katherena Vermette. Watch online at NFB.ca.
Migrant Dreams (2016), directed by Min Sook Lee. Watch online on TVO.

We would like to thank our sponsors Creative BC and the Directors Guild of Canada

Ann Marie’s graduating film from Emily Carr College of Art and Design,You Take Care Now (1989), was ranked among the Top 10 short films in Canada’s 150th Essential Cinema.  Blue Skies (2002) and New Shoes: an interview in exactly 5 minutes (1990) both won Best Canadian Short Film Awards at TIFF. Her filmography includes such acclaimed short films as I Was a Child of Holocaust Survivors (2010), Big Trees (2013), and the animated web-series My Place (2009) for Discovery USA’s Planetgreen.com.

Jenn Storm (Panelist)

I’m a director, editor and animator and I live in Vancouver, Canada. I’ve been making films for 23 years.

Documentary is my favourite storytelling medium: it expands our understanding, fuels change, captures complexity, and provides endless possibilities to play with the art of film language.

Recent projects and collaborations include: Stuffed (editor, story editor) a feature-length documentary about taxidermy artists which premiered at SXSW 2019 in the doc competition, Amplify Her Motion Comic (animator) a multi-platform project exploring the life stories of female DJs, Journeys to Adäka (co-editor, story consultant) a feature-length documentary about the healing and reclaiming journeys of First Nations artists in the Yukon, which won the Audience Choice award for Best Canadian Documentary at The Available Light Film Festival 2018, and The Road Forward (editor, visual effects supervisor) a feature-length musical documentary about First Nations activism which won 6 awards at the 2018 Leo Awards, including Best Picture and Best Picture Editor in the Feature Documentary category.

I chose the path of artist very early in life, and as a director I often explore creativity, culture and point of view, using animation, experimental storytelling and sound design to evoke a character’s inner world. Examples include a short about Nick Bantock, which was part of the Gemini-nominated arts series 12 TakesCity Centre, which explores condo development through the eyes of poet Evelyn Lau, and Assembly, a hand-painted animation about feminist filmmaking which was given the 2012 Artistic Achievement Award by Women in Film Vancouver.

As an animator I’ve always been inspired by the artistic legacy of animators at the National Film Board of Canada, and love getting the opportunity to work with mixed media, stop motion and digital techniques. For 10 years I’ve also worked part-time as a promo producer/editor at Knowledge Network, BC’s arts and culture network, making trailers for documentaries and children’s television.

As a documentary editor, I enjoy crafting dramatic arcs and out of the material of real life. When working as a story editor, I love helping a filmmaker find pathways through their characters’ journeys – drawing out connections, themes and contrasts. Both these processes are often puzzles to untangle, diving into the heart of the content, sorting through what exists, what is most alive and what needs to be understood.

I first became involved in the film community in 1996 through the Gulf Islands Film and Television School on Galiano Island, and the ethos of DIY-powered, experimental and passion-driven media making that was the staple of that community still fuels me as an artist. I’m also trained as a somatic therapeutic counsellor, and am drawn to film as a tool for education and healing.

Film making is a privilege I try to use with awareness and responsibility. Collaborative relationships are really important me, and I am deeply grateful to get to work with the talented individuals you see credited on these project pages.

Charlie Tyrell (Panelist)

Charlie Tyrell is a Torontonian filmmaker and the New Year’s Baby of 1988. His work has screened internationally at such festivals as Sundance, SXSW, Hot Docs, Tribeca, Nashville Film Festival, Rhode Island International Film Festival, Raindance, Brooklyn Film Festival and many more. His latest short doc, My Dead Dad’s Porno Tapes premiered at Sundance 2018 and went on to win best Documentary Short at Cinema Eye Honors, the Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary Short at SXSW 2018, TIFF Canada’s Top Ten 2019 and was shortlisted for an Academy Award in 2019.

Charlie’s work often combines live action footage with stop motion and 2D animation. He also likes skateboarding and swore he would never eat another hot dog until the Blue Jays win the World Series.

 

 

Cancelled: Saturday, May 9, 2020 – DOC BC Virtual Brunch on Cultural Protocols and Indigenous Sovereignty in New Media

Hello DOC community,

Unfortunately, the Zoom technology failed us today and many were not able to access the DOC BC BRUNCH.

We have re-started, re-initiated, copy-pasted every RSVP and it simply won’t budge. Our team has been doing the best to get it going but unfortunately, it is beyond our tech skills currently.

I apologize sincerely as this was going to be our most attended webinar. And we did everything the same way as it was done before. The moderators and panelists have chosen to begin the conversation and record it on Zoom as (for reasons beyond us) it only allowed panelists into the Zoom. We have done everything on our power today and in the last few weeks including upgrading to better versions of Zoom Webinar and training, but this is completely unexpected.

The recording will be made available to everyone, and we will have internal discussions about what happened, how to avoid it, and if this session can be organized once more in the future for the membership.

As you know we are doing this bi-weekly and with the work of volunteers.

We are deeply sorry and hope to be able to continue this series. We apologize to the membership as well as panelists who really badly wanted this to happen.

Thank you for your understanding,

Nicolas from DOC BC
