PAULA ELLE​

Executive Producer. Director.

Paula is a Vancouver-based filmmaker who has built a team of collaborators in her over 10 years of set experience. She has worked as a crew member on all types of shows from TV series, MOWs, to Steven Spielberg films.

 

Creating and starring in her own pilot, “The International Wine Thief”, Paula quickly realized her thrills come from behind the camera. Since then, she hasn’t stopped. She believes there is no reason to not be shooting, even if it means finding stories, grabbing a DSLR, and a few actors. She always has something on the go.
