Carla Bridgewater’s Profile

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.

Carla is attracted to socially conscious productions that serve the public interest. As an example, Carla produced “Tough to Swallow, Meals that Sparked a Seniors Revolt”. The film went viral and 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 Carla’s work. She firmly believes 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” (Carla’s 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 bring stories to life from concept creation to completion, creating  productions that matter to our community. 


It's how you say it

A production has impact when it leaves the viewer with a message. It can be subtle or overt, but message is always the key. We thrive with this creative challenge.


All in a day's work

We have more than 25 years of service in and around Alberta. Doing the job right is extremely important to us, and we pride ourselves on producing work that is of the highest quality.


We love our jobs

We bring stories to life, making work that matters to our city and to our community. We have the good fortune to work with amazing clients in a dynamic industry.
The documentaries, Learning Disabilities: Hidden Gifts, are exceptional. They bring a powerful voice to the main issues concerning learning disabilities across the lifespan. They are accurate, straightforward, engaging and moving.
