We aim to tell compelling stories by presenting the voices of the underrepresented.
Liz has a passion for media, culture, art, and music. Her talent and vision allows her to bring the story to life while connecting pieces together in all stages of production. She's worked as a freelance videographer, graphic designer, and content creator for companies like RU Student Life and Mediaplanet. She recently directed and edited a short film titled "Note 279" and a documentary titled "A Letter To Doug Ford".
Her goal is to make her audience feel seen and empowered through diverse stories which push for representation both on and off screen.
Jillian prides herself on her ability to make others feel heard and seen through writing. Her first-most priority when beginning any creative project is to create and occupy spaces for representation, and consequentially capturing those stories in writing.
In the past she's worked as a video editor at RU Student Life, and marketing assistant at both HER Creative TO and Reel Asian Film Festival. Her published works can be found in Feels Zine, Kaleidoscope, Revibe Toronto, and Thought Catalog.
In 2018 she self-published her debut poetry collection titled "Nineteen" which became a 3x Amazon best-seller in 2019.
She hopes to bring life to a story that has been aching to be heard through this pilot.
Sarah Padillo has a passion for storytelling, marketing, and sports.
As a first generation Filipino/ Canadian, Sarah wishes to tell a compelling story about the cultural divide between 1st and 2nd generation immigrants.
Upon graduating from Ryerson, Sarah wishes to work within the sports media industry.
Sarah currently works as a social media specialist for Ryerson's Alumni Relations department, and also creates content for The GIST, a female-founded sports media startup.
Her biggest accomplishments during her time as an RTA student includes being nominated for Best Narrative Script, and winning Best Intermediate Video Production at the 41st TARA Awards.
Ryan has over 6 years of production experience ranging from photo to video work. Though lacking in drawing and writing skills as a child, he gravitated to storytelling through the lens of the camera. As a 2nd Generation Asian immigrant, a career in the creative industry seemed difficult to justify - yet with a little persuasion and consistency, Ryan's been able to work with clients such as Unity, DECA Ontario, Chronic Ink Tattoos, and OMERS, eventually gaining support from his parents.
In hopes to one day penetrate the mainstream market with visual stories about Asian representation, Mixed Bowl Media is his starting point to bring the stories on screen as a DOP while using personal experiences to help nurture the show.
