Angelica O’Brien


My name is Angelica O’Brien, I am a recent film graduate from Trebas Institute in Montreal. I have a passion for filmmaking and photography. At a young age I was always very interested in movies and TV shows, and I grew up wanting to be an actress. I took film at Champlain College, and it was then that I realized that I am not a very talented actress, but that I really enjoyed other aspects of filmmaking, such as writing, directing and editing. I honed my skills in these areas during my time at Trebas, and I am looking to the future to see what it holds for me.

If you could produce, direct or edit any movie, which one would it be? And why?

The 1950’s, so I could star alongside Carry Grant in his next big movie.
