Producer/Director: Lana Palmer

As a producer, director and composer, my goal is to combine solid technical artistry with compelling, inspiring storytelling.

I have eight years of film industry experience working at every stage production, from low-budget documentaries to multi-million dollar feature films. I’ve worked on projects for major tech, entertainment, electronics and pharmaceutical companies, in addition to work for non-profits, arts organizations and narrative passion projects.

Originally from Canada, I began my career working in the camera department on TV shows and feature films (Psych, Watchmen) in Saskatchewan and Vancouver, BC. I moved on the Rocky Mountains of Alberta to work at the Banff Centre’s New Media Institute, where I had the opportunity to work with influential artists, technologists and researchers from around the world. At the Banff Centre I developed an interest in sound design and music for picture, and went on to complete a graduate certificate in Audio Post-Production. As a composer, my music is now used on over 50 TV shows airing on CBS, Fox, NBC, CTV, MTV, VH1, and TLC and others worldwide.

I’ve worked nearly every production position, from script supervisor to boom op – a key quality that makes me equally at home as part of the crew or leading a team as producer/director. I’m an insatiable learner and constantly challenge myself to grow in my life and my career. After many years spent behind the camera and in the editing room, I pushed myself to become a better director by studying acting. I enrolled in a Meisner technique program, and now work professionally as an actor for both film and theatre.

In whatever capacity, and in whatever medium I work in, my goals remains to inform, delight and inspire with well-crafted stories.

I’m always on the lookout for interesting projects or opportunities, and can be reached at lana@lanapalmer.com.
