A Career-Boosting Opportunity for Indie Producer, Lauren Evans

Congratulations to Lauren Evans, the 2018 William F. White Production Manager Mentorship recipient!

Independent digital producer, Lauren Evans, has a passion for storytelling. For her, creating and sharing diverse, engaging stories is a dream come true. As an award-winning producer with Cherrydale Productions Ltd., Lauren has built a wide set of skills specialized for digital content creation. In true indie creator fashion, Lauren has guided her projects from development and grant applications, crowd funding, production, distribution, and social media marketing. Her credits include: the IPF-funded project The March Family Letters; the Bell Fund/Corus Entertainment production, All for One: Season 1; and she is currently in production with the CMF Web Series Pilot Program-funded All for One: Season 2. Lauren has been featured as one of Canada’s Next Wave creators to watch in CMPA’s Indiescreen magazine and serves as Vice-President for the Independent Web Creators of Canada, a volunteer-run nonprofit organization focused on elevating Canadian digital creators and hosts of the annual T.O. Webfest.

“It’s programs like the William F. White and WIFT-T mentorship program that help to lift women up in this industry, and I could not be more excited and grateful for this opportunity. I look forward to learning from the amazing people at William F. White and connecting with incredible women through WIFT-T. With such strong support, I know that I will leave this program a better, more knowledgeable creator.”
