Creating a Successful VFX Company in Hamilton with Kirsten Bodenstedt

May 05, 06:13 PM

Hey it’s Alysha Main. Welcome to the Hamilton Film Podcast, where I document what’s happening in the film industry in Hamilton Ontario.

Kirsten Bodenstedt started Peregrine Visual Storytelling with her husband, Colin Doncaster.  It’s a multidisciplinary creative studio in Hamilton specializing in visual effects and animation tools for the film industry.  I chat with Kirsten about her lifetime working in film, the challenges of working as a husband-wife team, creating a successful Hamilton based business, and attending the Academy Awards with a baby on her lap. 

You can follow what’s happening with Peregrine on Twitter @PeregrineLabs
