By Jith Paul on June 18, 2015




Today we bring you the sixth and final episode in Jith Paul’s series, Ottawa Indie Film. This installment features Bonnie Robinson,  the founder of YOW Productions.

A professional writer, producer and director, she talks about her favourite types of films to make and where she likes to go to see movies in Ottawa.  She also reminds us that making films is most often a collaborative endeavour and has some great tips for aspiring filmmakers looking to plug into the local filmmaker community. Have a look:
