Erica Meus-Saunders is an Independent filmmaker and Editor in Nova Scotia. A recent graduate of the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) in the Screen Arts Program (2017), Erica already has a few short films under her belt – “Journey of Feet”, an official selection of FIN: Atlantic International Film Festival (2017), “A Chef’s Moment”, an official selection of Devour! The Food Film Festival (2017) to name a few.
She has also worked as crew (camera trainee, gaffer, script supervisor) on other films in the Atlantic region and hopes to expand her work in both drama and documentary film, working in various capacities.
Erica, also a published author reveals that her first novel, "Shiloh: City of Dreams" was developed from a paragraph written in high school. And credits her early experience as an Editor-in-Chief of a woman’s magazine for igniting her interest in film.
Just recently, I directed and produced a short documentary piece called, "The Dreamers" that screened at the 2019 FIN: Atlantic International Film Festival!
It's also part of Story-Book Entertainment's line-up of pieces:
And last year (2018) I had an opportunity to participate in a joint project for Lunenburg Doc Fest. We created a Docu Poem, entitled "Mr. Horizon" that played at the festival September 21st, 2018!
It was a collaboration between myself, a poet and a performance artist. We started and completed the project in the time frame of 5 weeks, and at the festival it was presented in a live performance! A first for me.
