In a word: COMMUNITY

Dana Inkster has worked as a community builder and marketer since 1995. "I have built a career based on the craft of collaborating with community to share our stories".


Documentary filmmaking is used to capture events, history and the lives of people. Documentaries could include interviews, on-location filmmaking, and presentation of facts and figures, historical information, day-in-the-life, or in-depth analysis. They could flow naturally or have narration. We can script, film and produce a full documentary in house.


Your organization can get the information and training you need to develop your own video productions. Contact us for rates and availability.


As a Marketing & Communications firm, EM Workshop Inc. crafts narrative - because storytelling creates an official record of who we are as people and as communities. We use this trade in service of organizations across the public and private sector to inspire community engagement.
