Autograf & Kyle Reynolds - Drifting Away

Michelle Kee

Pandapix Enterprise

I've loved Autograf's music for years. I contacted them on Instagram with a pitch for a music video for their song, Casual Love. They sent me this song and I wrote a pitch over the weekend and it was green-lit about a month later, delivered about six weeks after my 30th birthday. It was the best birthday present I've ever gotten.

Michelle Kee is a director based out of Vancouver. Graduating from Simon Fraser University (BFA in Film Production), her directing career started by winning the Crazy8s 2014 edition to make her short film, “Mattress”, from shoot to post in 8 days. She then won the competition for Hot Shot Shorts in 2016 getting funding to direct the WWI Musical Short, Send Us Smokes. She was one of fourteen filmmakers chosen for the CBC Arts Diverse Creators Workshop 2016 in Toronto. In 2019, her script, Blood for the Throne, was chosen to be produced for the Kyoto Filmmaker’s Lab at the historic Shochiku Studios in Kyoto.
