When it comes to delivering impact, nothing is ever ‘off the table ’

How do we create impact?

Transmedia is nothing without an audience, and a message is only as good as the people who hear it. When you hire our team, you have access to everything in our toolkit – from ideation and strategy to design and development, video production, analytics, marketing, and a whole lot more.

Meet our team of empathy-driven creatives.

​We’re much more interested in making waves than making one-offs. When a cause matters to you, it matters to us too. Though each of us brings our own tools to the drawing board, what we have in common is our desire to create measurable impact. Do you have a story that’s important to you? We’re all ears.

Erin Skillen

Producer

Erin thrives on the creative process of shaping meaningful and entertaining content. The challenge to find the right people and the funding to create this content invigorates her.

Her roles included Producer, Writer, Director, Host and Business Affairs nerd for several socially-conscious TV documentary specials and series for Discovery, W Network, CBC, APTN and many more.

Deanna Ladret

Storyteller

Dee prefers writing over talking – ask her friends and family who she bombards with text messages. Though her career launched at age 9 with the launch of a cul-de-sac radio program and monthly newspaper, she spent a noble 15 years toiling without accepting a single cent for her work. Dee loves the power that stories have to engage, inspire and facilitate action. She also likes to draw and has begun dabbling in the world of lettering, having recently assisted in the design of two fonts. She spends her evenings with her family, or writing deeply personal Medium posts that she’s too shy to publish.

Kristen Turcotte

Kristen uses her attentiveness to synthesize the needs of our clients in tantalizing and imaginative ways. She pushes herself to excel at everything she tries – today it might be scuba diving or a half marathon; tomorrow it might be painting and improv. Maybe a full marathon. Who knows? One thing’s for sure, Tiki (her Bernese Mountain Dog puppy) can always count on a walk along the shores of the Atlantic after a long day’s work.

Beth Parker

Blogger

Beth is probably the most elusive person at One Net but she makes up for it with word power. She has worked for newspapers, online publications, and has even interviewed super famous musicians. She loves that aha moment when you find the perfect way to say something in writing. She thinks playing with words is really fun, which might be why she's constantly giggling for no apparent reason. A total media geek, she spends her spare time listening to copious amounts of music while dreaming up scenes for movies that she one day hopes to direct.
