Jack Singer Concert Hall
Bryan Smith is an award-winning filmmaker based out of Squamish, British Columbia. His first documentary, 49 Megawatts, received acclaim both for its amazing kayaking footage and insightful exploration of the controversy over British Columbia’s river-based energy production. An online version went viral and led to two feature length sea kayaking films. His work has appeared at numerous film festivals across the world, including the prized Banff and Telluride Mountain Film festivals.
With a knack for storytelling, an ability to assemble great teams, an insane work ethic and of course, his stunning videography, Smith’s client list has grown to include National Geographic, Discovery, Disney, Red Bull, Patagonia, New Belgium Brewing, Arcteryx and more. In 2010, he earned a National Geographic Expedition Grant for his work in Kamchatka, Russia, and launched into digital media, co-producing and directing The Season web TV series.
With extensive experience on Red, Alexa, Phantom, Sony F900, Panasonic Varicam, and just about every ENG camera platform, Smith’s experience at getting cameras into difficult and remote locations makes him an incredible asset to any production. Smith brings a diverse perspective to non-fiction filmmaking, having worked on TV, independent documentary and several commercial projects. Join us for this incredible presentation filled with adventure and unbelievable anecdotes.
