Rachel Kwan is a BC-based filmmaker, photographer, and writer. Currently studying Motion Picture Arts at Capilano University, Rachel is driven by her love for storytelling, need for adventure, eye for precise composition, and constant desire to find the joy in the ordinary. Known for her cinematic wedding films and dramatic screenplays, Rachel strives for artistic excellence no matter the medium.
She believes that every moment is purposeful, and that an attention to detail is the glue to any narrative. In the past, Rachel has worked as a photojournalist/reporter for the Richmond News. She is fuelled by collaborative team environments and is in perpetual search for new experiences and perspectives to add to her repertoire.
Aside from her freelance work, Rachel is an absolute film buff, comic book hoarder, and craft beer enthusiast (her current favourites being “Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind”, Wolverine, and the Strange Fellows Gin Gose, respectively). She is highly ambitious in everything that she does, whether that is varsity soccer or all you can eat sushi. Though just five-foot-one, she is up for any challenge and looks to explore her ever-expanding comfort zone. If you would like to speak with her, she is most likely hanging out at the local movie theatre. Or just e-mail her, that works too.
