Marliss Weber

The first five years of my career were as a television producer with Global TV. In that time, I produced over 250 regional and national commercials, three factual television series, and many corporate videos. Many of these productions won national awards. In the years to follow, both as an independent producer and with my own communications company, Parodos Communications Inc., I produced many more corporate videos for clients, with a more strategic lens. Parodos Communications Inc. has been offering communication strategy and social media content creation and management for over 12 years, helping organizations tell their stories in engaging and meaningful ways. One of the awards we have received with this company was the prestigious IABC Capital Award for our comprehensive social strategy with the City of Edmonton Women’s Initiative.

I have also spent five years with the Group of Rogues, an award-winning digital media production company, as an executive producer, managing producer, story consultant, writer and director. Our flagship project, Necessary Evil, has screened at festivals around the world, received 23 award nominations (and counting) and won the Rosie for Best Screenwriting - Drama Under 30, Best Webseries at the Blood in the Snow Canadian Film Festival, and Best Production Design at the Seoul Web Fest.

I have also done professional writing and editing throughout my career, for newspapers, magazines, and various online publications. This includes professional storytelling for a variety of clients, and I have hundreds of published clips to my name, several of which have won awards.
