“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” ― Lao Tzu
ANDREW C. BROWN – DIRECTOR / EDITOR
In recent years, I have focussed on directing and editing of documentaries, primarily short format. I’ve successfully completed numerous projects for organizations such as the West Toronto Art Collective, Art For Cancer, The West Toronto and Junction Historical Society, and The Stratford & District Historical Society.
My approach involves selecting projects that genuinely pique my interest, and many of these endeavours are undertaken voluntarily. I enjoy the informal, do-it-yourself approach of “guerrilla filmmaking.”
Throughout my career, I’ve been involved in a diverse range of film and video productions, including editing nationally broadcast TV programs and commercials, post-production supervisor on feature films, directing corporate and television programs, along with director/editor of documentaries. I’ve received a number of awards, including two Geminis, a Telly for TV children’s programming and recognition for best editing in “Cry of Silence,” among other accolades.
I continue to be fascinated with new stories and ways to tell them.
