Donovan Richard

Donovan studied at "l'université de Moncton" and obtained his bachelors degree in History there as well as he got his first taste for filmmaking by taking film classes with Acadian artist and filmmaker, Herménégilde Chiasson. Later on Donovan joined the New Brunswick Coop in 2003 and began producing and directing several shorts, as well as helped produce, design and coordinate several other short film projects for fellow filmmakers. The ability to tell his stories, the sense of camaraderie and collective creative collaboration are what inspired him the most to become an independent filmmaker and to volunteer his help to anyone who needs it.
