Career: Film & TV

Paul Brothers

Anchor/Co-host - The Morning News, Global Halifax

Paul Brothers is nothing if not strategic. He figures out what he wants, then he figures out how to get it. “I had a goal when I was a teenager that I would be on national television as a sports anchor before I turned thirty,” Paul says, a little…

Shannon Brownlee

Associate Director (Cinema & Media Studies); Assistant Professor - Cinema and Media Studies; Gender and Women's Studies

Shannon Brownlee discovered a kind of academic freedom when she went to King’s. “I never felt like I was, what’s the word? Grade grubbing? It was never about the grade,” Shannon says. “It was about the material and the learning—learning for the joy…

Chloé Hung

Writer. Director. Actor.

“I was walking across the King’s quad when I got the call,” Chloé Hung explains. “I had got the part of Juliet! I was jumping up and down!” To get a lead role in a King’s Theatrical Society (KTS) production of Romeo and Juliet was a big deal for a…

Alexander Mifflin

Host / Writer / Co-Director / Research Director, The Water Brothers

Just imagine this—whale sharks and tiger sharks lurking around you. And up above, moving silently through the ocean off Costa Rica, three hundred hammerhead sharks glide by. It’s just another day at work for Alex Mifflin. “Underwater, you feel like…

Charlotte Bell

Photographer, Filmmaker

Charlotte Bell is not likely to ever take the road well travelled. And part of the credit for that, she says, goes to King’s. “Within the King’s community I learned, for the first time, that being outside the box is okay. There was no rush to be,…

Daniel Boos

Andrew Murphy

Director of Programming, Inside Out

Andrew Murphy still gets chills when he thinks about it. It was at the 2014 Inside Out Film Festival in Toronto. Andrew, as Director of Programming for the LGBT focused festival had brought in the film Matt Shepard Is A Friend of Mine. The capacity…

Ariel Nasr

Filmmaker

It’s hard to imagine how a bout of tendonitis could lead to an Oscar nomination, a place in the FIN Atlantic International Film Festival Gala, and a great gig with the National Film Board (phew!), but it did for Ariel Nasr. This part of his…

Lindsay Cameron Wilson

Writer, Host of Love Food and The Food Podcast

“For me,” says Lindsay Cameron Wilson “a recipe is never just a recipe. It’s a neighbourhood. It’s a family. It’s a story.” And she tells those stories on her cooking show Love Food (Clerisy Entertainment) on Eastlink TV, on her podcast - The Food…

Evany Rosen

Comedy Writer and Performer

“King’s is the best place to go and be a weirdo” says Evany Rosen. As a standup comic, actor, writer and early member of the Halifax-based comedy group “Picnicface,” perhaps she may be more authoritative on the subject than average. “You can strike…

Marc Almon

Film Producer

For moviegoers, Blackbird is an award-winning production about the juvenile detention system. For producer Marc Almon, the film is the biggest risk he’s ever taken.“There were periods of production when I thought I was going to go bankrupt. It was…
