How It Started
Janelle has been picturing doing what she does today since she was 5 years old. Her curiosity and unique sense of wonder are what drive her most as a storyteller. Since launching Wookey Films, she’s had the opportunity to develop her ‘left-brain’ and now actually cherish the hours she gets to spend on Microsoft Excel. Her love of entertaining audiences is fulfilled both through her work as a content producer and through living room performances of lip-synced Barbra Streisand show tunes.
Jérémie’s artistic intuition & technical skills have been central in the conception and continued growth of Wookey Films. His unique blend of modesty and ambition help keep his team both focused and inspired. Jeremie is passionate about developing authentic, smart and fresh content that connects with audiences from coast to coast.
With more than 25 years of experience in the production industry, Colleen Alksnis has accrued a unique and deeply valuable skillset. As a free-lance Producer, Production Manager, Bookkeeper and Tax Credit Administrator, her unparalleled understanding of the business side of television production in Manitoba make her an integral member of the Wookey Films team. Colleen has worked on numerous award-winning productions for CBC, APTN and CTV (among others) alongside many (if not the majority) of Manitoba’s most successful Producers.
Marlène credits much of her creativity and discipline to the 15+ years she dedicated to an artistic sport. As an elite athlete, Marlène competed in synchronized swimming at the national and international levels. A graduate of the Université de Saint-Boniface, Marlène joins Wookey Films with several years of experience in the business and legal sectors. Having developed strong organizational skills and possessing a great attention to detail, the Franco-Manitoban offers a blend of structure with a love of artistry.
Wookey Films is located in the heart of the Exchange District in suite 705 at 70 Arthur Street.
