Laura O'Grady

With more than 20 years of production and project management experience, I endeavour to brings a steady and creative hand to all projects. I served as VP of Production for Pyramid Productions (2000-2009) and Spotlight Productions (2012-2018) before launching my own company, Snapshot Studios Inc, in 2018. This challenging new adventure is allowing me to expand my business acumen well beyond production. I hope to grow Snapshot into a diverse and inclusive production house in the years ahead.

While my own company may be new, my career as a producer has been going strong for more than 20 years. I have produced, coordinated, written or directed thousands of hours of content, ranging from news documentaries for national broadcasters (Thin Ice) to digital content that has garnered millions of views (Yoga for Kids).

From 2012-2018 I worked closely with TELUS to develop the award-winning documentary content stream TELUS Originals, a series of films that have won numerous provincial and national awards, including a 2018 Canadian Screen Award for the digital short The Secret Life of Amber Valley.

As a filmmaker and director I am grateful to have achieved success in the documentary and digital genre, debuting two short films at Hot Docs (Cafe-Nation, Eviction Notice) while also garnering CSA directing (digital) nominations for Queer Hutterite and Gross Indecency: The Everett Klippert Story.
