Alison Richards – Surrey Muse

Transmedia Producer

Alison Richards has produced and directed award-winning documentaries, feature films, commercials, and music videos. ‘F-Stops’, her first feature film, won the Remi (best film) Award at Houston Worldfest and won for cinematography in Cannes, France. Her documentary ‘Every 15 Minutes’, about adolescents and impaired driving, is being used statewide in California as a teaching aid for high school students. Her most recent feature length film ‘Bare Knuckles’ has become a “cult classic”.

In 2009, Alison introduced the Middle East to Women in Film & Television by establishing an international chapter in Dubai, UAE. WIFTV is an internationally affiliated non-profit society committed to advancing & celebrating women in the screen-based media industry.

At this time, Richards is in post production on a project, 30 Days Zero Waste Zero Impact ‘Zero 30 30’, an environmental interactive experience which she hopes will inspire Metro Vancouver residents and global citizens to “be the change you want to see”. As well, she is in collaboration with partners around the globe and working on several ‘Transmedia’ cross platform, multimedia, interactive, branded entertainment experiments.

With her eye toward the future, Alison has worked as a guest lecturer and teacher at various educational institutions (UCLA, USC, LA Film School, SAE Institute in Dubai) and is now working with a team of academics, government officials, philanthropists and talented creatives to help develop a unique educational program which will provide filmmaking training and a “reel-life” experience for youth in rural South Africa, and also to source financing for several other projects in development including her next feature length film ‘Lions, Tigers, and Bears’ to be shot on location in South Africa.
