A big picture thinker, Kik Di Nino enjoys being the guiding force on creative projects. Her passion and drive have allowed her to work with leading Canadian and American networks, including CBC and CBC Gem, Global, CTV, CityTV, Comedy Network, OUTtv, FOX, NBC, and Netflix

Focused on breaking new artistic ground, Kik carries projects forward with infectious energy and has become known for her unique vision and innovative direction. She has a meticulous eye and understands the 'big picture' is actually in all the fine, micro details. Kik has created hit linear content for audiences on both sides of the border, as well as national commercials and music videos. Most notably, her story-telling work on the series Where To I Do (2017), alongside the amazing crew that created the show, was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for Best Lifestyle Series. Last year, Kik was honored to be a fellow of Banff's Diversity of Voices Initiative, and this year she is grateful to be in the Banff Spark Accelerator for women in the business of media. 

Intrigued by magnifying life through the lens, Kik picked up her first camera at age seven, and that single moment changed her perspective forever. A true artist and philosopher at heart, she describes the lens as one of her first love languages.

Andrea Cuda
Cinematographer

Andrea Cuda is a versatile cinematographer who has lensed several different film and television projects of varying budgets and styles, from short films, House on Carter (2019) and Cancel the F**king Internet (2016), to television series, Zerby Derby (2017) and the HGTV series Bahamas Life, and Hawai'i Hunters (2018-2019). Andrea works with directors and producers of varying tastes, effortlessly capturing the beauty of each project and translating visuals that leave a lasting impression in the audience's subconscious. 

Technological advances in cinema have created boundless options for telling stories. Andrea adheres to the original ideal that visual story-telling and expressing the truth in every moment is in the knowing. The old-world skill of deciphering the most effective tool in the quiver to pull out to capture a specific emotion that will connect the audience to the story. Andrea equates this to slowly wrapping the audience in the blanket of the story's purpose, making them a part of the process before revealing the core truth. Andrea believes this is where the power is held. It is the strength of some of the greatest cinema of our time and the most memorable print and video advertisements.

This ideal has lead Andrea to take visual risks with his collaborators that have paid off thoroughly. In the short film Jackie (2016), he and the director had to figure out a way to synchronize a split-screen film to play side by side. Once again, able to decipher the right tool, Andrea believes in the importance of pushing the language of visuals.  Andrea loves adapting and finding new solutions to old problems. When he is not out taking photographs or shooting a project, he enjoys sharing time with friends discussing life, art, and society, as well as hiking and exploring with his daughter Olive.
