Thanks for dropping by.


I am an award-winning marketing and indy filmmaker and a former CBC News video journalist of 1,000+ TV stories, and several documentaries.  


I’m skilled in story creation, planning, interviewing, video production and editing.  


As the Marketing Director for a new stealth AI firm, I lead the creation of short-form video stories around consciousness and artificial intelligence. 


I previously worked in the B.C. film industry as a film editor and lighting technician.  


I am inspired by deep space, profound thinking, and dazzling displays of human expression. My favourite quote – Admiral Lord Nelson: “Never mind manoeuvres, go straight at ’em!


I use proven storytelling techniques to creating brand and social media films.  Through my consultancy Mychaylo Creative Inc., I have produced dozens of films for clients including universities, wineries, liquor, classical music, consultants, and tech start-up’s. I recently earned a triple platinum marketing award for a robot unveiling video. 


In my work with corporate marketing and communications departments, I have played a key role in shaping social media content to achieve outstanding marketing outcomes.  I am skilled at developing “buyer personas” to better design content, and have experience running social media campaigns.  One viral video I created achieved 1.6 million hits on Facebook.  I use a hook-development-climax storytelling structure that is very effective for short-form videos on social media, especially TikTok, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Leveraging my 15 years in journalism, I have played a key role in helping clients and organizations win outstanding press and TV coverage.  I understand news rooms and how and when to pitch.  I have worked as a journalist at CBC TV, CTV, the Globe and Mail and freelanced with many others.  My PR experience includes: writing press releases, organizing press conferences, and pitching to news editors and journalists.

To enhance my video storytelling, I worked professionally in the film industry as a film editor, trailer editor, and a film-lighting technician.  I am well versed in the full film production and post-production process, including colour grading, sound mixing and mastering.



I was a CBC TV reporter for 9 years, between 2004-2013, producing +1,000 TV stories for daily local and national broadcast.

I also edited several current affairs films (short docs) for national broadcast.
