Birds in the House is a new media and video production company based in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Creativity is our passion. We're thinking out-of-the-box, engaging rather than slick. We focus on storytelling that brings people together, forms a stronger community, and inspires.
Let me introduce Geoff Peters - he's an award-nominated filmmaker and the primary editor behind the films at Birds in the House. He's produced videos for a company the size of Microsoft, but is equally at home making two minute clips showcasing great Vancouver restaurants.
In 2012, Geoff's film "A Different Beat" was shown at Cannes Short Film Corner in France, which he wrote and directed. This year, Geoff and his collaborators also released a 13 minute comedy short called Shawarma, filmed on location in Vancouver.
Geoff is currently the videography sponsor for the Food Talks Volume 1 series of events hosted by Vancouver Foodster, featuring discussions from experts on food security / sustainability, ethnic foods, creative cooking, and local farming in Vancouver Canada.
In 2011, Geoff was a top ten finalist in the Nokia Direct and Project competition held at the Vancouver Art Gallery, with his short film "Alphabetical Order in my Neighborhood".
Birds in the House Productions has a keen interest in documenting the thoughts and realities of the marginalized and less vocal, as well as highlighting environmental, culinary, and cultural features of communities. Well versed in new media, Geoff Peters is a major local contributor to Youtube, maintaining several channels with a total of over 780,000 views. Geoff has diverse interests in software development, music production, jazz piano, food photography, comedy, fiction, and satire.
