    História administrativa

    Reel Girls Media is an Edmonton-based production company with the stated goal to foster a deeper understanding of the world and the human spirit through the production of television and new media programs.

    Reel Girls Media has produced multiple projects for television, web, and mobile platforms and has been recognized with more than forty international awards, including citations from the Alberta Film and Television Awards, the Canadian New Media Awards, the Banff Television Festival, and the World Animation Festival.

    Reel Girls productions have included documentaries about Canadian writers (Capturing Cooperman, Between the Stones and the Ocean: A Portrait of Rudy Wiebe, and Out of the West), the natural world (Return of the Peregrine and SciQ: Up Close and Palaeo), Métis culture (How the Fiddle Flows), and Canadian involvement in Afghanistan (Homefront). Reel Girls has also produced television series, including Booked, The Lie Detective, and Stories from the Seventh Fire.

    The company was founded by Ava Karvonen, a producer and director with over twenty years of experience in the industry. Karvonen has served on the boards of the Alberta Chapter of the Documentary Organization of Canada as well as the national body. She also serves as an advisor to both nextMedia and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology's Digital Interactive Media and Design program and sits on the new media committee of the Canadian Film and Television Producers Association. She has also served as a board member of the Digital Media Association of Alberta, Edmonton Arts Council, Salute to Excellence for the City of Edmonton, the Alberta Media Production Industries Association, and Filmmakers for Conservation.

    História custodial

    Âmbito e conteúdo

    The fonds consists of production files for various projects undertaken by Reel Girls Media. These projects are as follows:

    SciQ: Up Close and Palaeo: a one-hour, children’s program shot at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller that focuses on palaeontology. The records include masters, b-rolls, and interview transcripts.

    Stories from the Seventh Fire: a half-hour, animated, children’s series featuring Indigenous performers such as Tantoo Cardinal and Gordon Tootoosis narrating several First Nations stories and legends. The records include DVDs and the original masters.

    Booked: a half-hour series in which book reviewers and criminal justice professionals discuss a prominent mystery novel. The records include masters and DVDs.

    Out of the West: a one-hour documentary featuring interviews with several western Canadian authors. The records include masters, shooting tapes, and production files.

    Between the Stones and the Ocean: A Portrait of Rudy Wiebe: a one-hour documentary about western Canadian author Rudy Wiebe. The records include shooting tapes and masters.

    Capturing Cooperman: A Not So Private Investigation of Howard Engel: a one-hour documentary about Canadian mystery author Howard Engel. The records are limited to the masters.

    WildFiles: a half-hour, children’s series that focuses on animal biology. The records are limited to production files.

    Return of the Peregrine: a one-hour documentary about conservation efforts to restore peregrine falcon populations across Canada. The records include shooting tapes and interview transcripts.

    Homefront: a one-hour documentary that follows the stories of several Edmonton-based soldiers and their families during deployment to Afghanistan. The records are limited to masters.

    How the Fiddle Flows: a one-hour documentary that traces Métis culture and history through music and dancing. The records are limited to masters.

    In addition to these completed projects, there are several non-completed projects that are also captured in the records. These projects were started by Reel Girls but never broadcast or distributed and include the following:

    Return of the Bison: a potential documentary that would have focused on conservation efforts to restore bison populations across the world. The records include shooting tapes and production files.

    A to Z Film Guide: this potential series would have focused on various roles within the film industry as an educational tool. The records are limited to pre-production files.

    Rock ‘n’ Fossil Road Show: this potential series was modeled on Antiques Roadshow and would have featured rock and fossil collectors consulting with experts about their collections. A pilot was completed but the series was not pursued. The records include pre-production files.
