After years of refining her craft from childhood through adolescence and professional studies, Janelle's big break came in 2008, when the independent documentary she produced with her brother and creative partner, Jérémie, Mémére Métisse premiered on opening night of the imagineNATIVE Film Festival in Toronto and aired on CBC, Radio-Canada and APTN. Along with her brother, Janelle has since produced and directed short docs for CBC’s ’8th Fire’, a Canadian Screen Award-nominated cross-platform project. After years of experience in the Radio-Canada Manitoba TV newsroom, the Wookeys launched Wookey Films Inc which is a production company specializing in documentary and non-fiction television programming. WF also provides creative and execution on promotional and commercial video work for TV and web.
