Film-making has been a passion of mine ever since I picked up my parent’s video camera when I was eight years old. When I took my first workshop with ViewFinders, I learned so much more and became particularly interested in stop motion animation. I have always enjoyed film-making and realized over the past few years that it is something I want to do for the rest of my life.

When ViewFinders approached me with the opportunity to attend the Women Making Waves conference, I responded with a very enthusiastic “Yes!”. I had attended a conversation at the conference last year, which had talked about women in the horror film industry, so I was delighted to return this year for more. Two other girls from ViewFinders, Gwyneth Cristoffel and Kayla Barnard attended the event along with myself, and I know we all felt extremely grateful for the experience. It was great to be able to attend the event with people my age to make things a little less intimidating, and to have someone on the same experience level to relate to and meet industry professionals with.
