Jennifer Podemski -Award winning actor, producer, writer, film maker and CEO of Red Cloud Studios Inc. appears on the Red Road Radio Show Wednesday February 15th
Join us LIVE Wednesday February 15th when we visit with Jennifer Podemski an award winning Film and Television Producer and Actor born and raised in Toronto, Canada. We will talk about her career and current projects and the impact of First Nations artists in entertainment.
Of mixed First Nations and Israeli decent, Jennifer began her acting career as a teen. Her career blossomed when she was cast as Pique in CBC’s The Diviners followed by a starring role in Bruce McDonald’s Dance Me Outside.
As her career in front of the camera exploded, Jennifer began to notice the inequity behind the lens. Although all of the roles she was awarded as actor were First Nations characters, she rarely, if ever, saw any First Nations writers, producers or directors.
By 25, and a solid career under her belt, Jennifer opened her first production company, Big Soul Productions with fellow, burgeoning, producer Laura Milliken. BSP became the first Aboriginal owned and operated, full service production company in Canada, producing hundreds of hours of television including three seasons of the award winning Dramatic Series Moccasin Flats for Showcase and APTN.
In 2005, Jennifer branched out on her own and founded Redcloud Studios Inc.
