Carla Bridgewater – Producer, Director, Writer

Carla Bridgewater is one of Calgary’s premier producers of broadcast quality Television, Web, Corporate, Documentary and Live Event productions.

As one of Calgary’s most experienced independent Producer/Director/Writers, Carla and her company Sherana Productions, brings extensive television experience to the table when producing projects. Carla has produced, directed and written hundreds of television and video projects, including award-winning television documentaries, commercials and multi-camera live events.

“I’m attracted to socially conscious productions that serve the public interest. For example, I produced ‘Tough to Swallow, Meals that Sparked a Seniors Revolt’. The film went viral, received unprecedented media coverage and was instrumental in getting government to improve the shamefully poor quality of meals for older adults.

“The phrase ‘story is everything’ applies to every program I create. I firmly believe that every production must contain meaningful content, produced in a way that engages the viewer on an emotional level and goes ‘Above the Noise, Straight to the Heart’ (my latest film). This film features the Prophets of Music emerging artist program and the healing and transformative power of music. Barclay Hunter created Prophets of Music, after his son Josh and four friends were stabbed to death at a house party in Calgary.”

Carla brings stories to life from concept creation to completion, creating productions that matter to our community.
