Having been raised in the UK, Norway, Indonesia, Mexico and Canada, Brett Ferster grew up being immersed in cultures and stories from around the world. These experiences probably seeped into his subconscious and guided him toward the idea of crafting stories, through film, as a career. After gaining a BFA from the University of Lethbridge, he quickly started working in the industry, and pursuing ideas that interested him.
The work he directs is often described as genuine, engaging, entertaining, and visually compelling. He has won a handful of awards for his last short films, One Night in Aberdeen and Claddagh.


The Light Factory
The Light Factory is made up of an anomaly. The company was started by two people, both named ‘Brett’. They both graduated from the same media arts & production school at the same time. Realizing it was fated, they joined their respective left and right brains to form a production company that puts ideas and strong creativity at the forefront. Since 2014 they have produced commercial and creative content for local, national and international clients; and have had their work shown on CBC, Short of the Week, and a good handful of film festivals while picking up some provincial industry awards and commendations along the way. They work to create compelling work at all levels and believe the future of film is multi-hyphenate people creating work in an open collaboration.


Join The Bretts for the Tool Kit Talk: Video Production session on Tuesday, November 10 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
