She has built her music video portfolio collaborating with independent Vancouver artists and is a recent recipient of The MVP Project, administered by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television. Tamara’s attunement to art direction, colour and styling creates a unique visual exploration in every project. In both 2021 and 2022 Tamara’s films made the Top 20 Finalists as part of Run N Gun, Vancouver’s 48hr filmmaking competition. Tamara was also chosen to participate in the 2022 cohort of the BANFF Spark Accelerator for Women in the Business of Media.
Tamara is currently working on her next narrative concept, PLASTIC and writing a TV pilot entitled SHE DESERVES IT. She goes into production on her Canada Council for the Arts funded short ROPE-BALL-SPORT-GAME in Fall 2023. Her work focuses on courageous and bold voices seeking to change the status quo, stories exploring mental health, sexuality, trauma and female friendships through genre-bending concepts including drama, comedy and horror.
