I don't dream at night, I dream at day, I dream all day;
I'm dreaming for a living.
- Steven Spielberg
Hi there! I'm Lexie, owner and creative eye behind the scenes.
As you can see, I found my passion for being behind the camera
at the age of 2!
The quote above not only sums up my philosophy,
but gives tribute to why I became a filmmaker, and you may notice more
of his wise words as you continue through the page.
who am i
I’m a writer, a dreamer, a storyteller and an animal lover. I love fairytales, reading and adventure.
I find inspiration from original stories, creative filmmaking
and people who step out of the box.
Ever since I learnt how to write, all I wanted to do was tell a story.
I went to Canterbury Arts High School where I realized I could turn the words on a page into a visual story in photographs or,
my favourite, in film.
I graduated from the Media Foundations program at Humber College
where I discovered my passion for film and photography.
I then graduated from the Film and Television Production program
where I learnt the art of cinematography, directing and scriptwriting.
what i'm most proud of
I'm honoured to have been nominated for a People's Choice wedding award in 2020 & 2021, but I am most proud to have had a film on which I was cinematographer be accepted into the Toronto Independent Film Festival.
Sure, cinematography and directing make sense,
but how does scriptwriting tie into creating films
for couples and small businesses you may ask?
Lexie age 2
Filmmaking and storytelling are not just my business, they're my passion, and I love working with other passionate people to create something special.
Stories don't have a middle or an end anymore.
They usually have a beginning that never stops beginning.
- Steven Spielberg
With a theme of being different, I wanted to do something other than a typical head shot. The details in this photo hint at who I am, the things I enjoy, and my workflow when creating films. It's these subtle but important details that I make sure to capture for every couple in their wedding film. Just like these things tell you a little bit about my story, the details of your day and who you are as a couple tell yours.
The art of scriptwriting is not only learning how to format a script,
but understanding the elements of story, how to pace them, and how to use them to create emotion.
Plot. Character. Conflict. Resolution. Action.
But not just any story.
Good storytelling can make you crumble over in laughter; it can make your heart race and make you cry like a blubbering fool. There are hundreds of ways to tell one story, but only a well-told story will connect your brand with your target audience, create trust, loyalty and inspire action.
Scriptwriting not only taught me how to format scripts, but how to create a story people care about.
I would love to help you create a powerful story to promote your business.
Stories bridge emotion connections between your audience
and the mission of your brand, service or product.
Nearly every wedding photography and videography
website you visit today mentions storytelling.
Photographers talk about how they will tell your story with photographs and videographers
emphasize the use of storytelling in their videos.
why Sea Glass?
When I first started making movies, I was 16. I wanted a name that meant crushing through the boundaries of what’s been done and doing the impossible, so “Shattered Glass” became my first home.
When I realized that name was taken, I struggled to think of something else that had the same sort of meaning and came across the idea of sea glass.
As fate would have it, sea glass begins as ordinary shattered glass and, over time, is smoothed over by the ocean until each piece is original and uniquely beautiful. I believe the training, research and experience I’ve gone through have transformed me from that 16 year old dreamer making movies with whatever I could get my hands on, to a filmmaker turning passion into career. It wasn’t only the process I’ve gone through as a filmmaker that I felt the name was perfect for me, but the process of my films undergo. Where sea glass is made by time, with water smoothing it over until it is perfect, my mission is to make each film original and unique in a way that embodies the stories they tell.
While keeping a consistent cinematic style, I strive to take your story and weave that into the essence that makes your film and photos unique.
