Carla Bridgewater

Carla Bridgewater is the proud owner and founder of Sherana Productions. As one of Calgary’s most experienced independent Producer/Director/Writers, Carla and her company Sherana Productions, brings extensive television experience to the table when producing projects. Carla has produced, directed and written hundreds of television and video projects, including award-winning television documentaries, commercials and multi-camera live events.

Carla is attracted to socially conscious productions that serve the public interest. As an example, Carla produced “Tough to Swallow, Meals that Sparked a Seniors Revolt”. The film went viral and received unprecedented media coverage and was instrumental in getting government to improve the shamefully poor quality of meals for older adults.

The phrase “story is everything” applies to Carla’s work. She firmly believes that every production must contain meaningful content, produced in a way that engages the viewer on an emotional level and goes “Above the Noise, Straight to the Heart” (Carla’s latest film). This film features the Prophets of Music emerging artist program and the healing and transformative power of music. Barclay Hunter created POM, after his son and four friends were stabbed to death at a house party in Calgary.

Carla is looking forward to growing her business and creating more, meaningful productions in the years ahead.
