Joanne Loton

Documentary maker, immersive/interactive investigator, and engaging team leader - I strongly believe that as a storyteller, it’s up to creators to find the best medium in which to tell the story and that story must drive the tech, not the other way round. A design led, multi-disciplinary approach is at the core of almost everything I like to create and collaborate on.

Past projects include photographic installations; short and long form documentaries with topics ranging from sky jackers to weather bomb chasers; creating physical installations for Nuit Blanche, and producing/developing blue chip broadcast series for channels such as Discovery Channel, National Geographic, History Channel, A&E, MTV and Amazon.

Joanne has just finished exec-producing a Canada and Ontario 150 project called SESQUI - a touring, immersive media experience. Featuring 360° cinematic full dome content, interactive VR and online content, the programme reached 1.6 million Canadians in over 60 communities from coast to coast to coast and has been nominated and won multiple awards in Best Immersive Experience.
