Kate Twa

The Orchard is Kate’s 2nd feature film (following up 2011’s ‘Gods of Youth’). She has been in the industry for over 25 years as an actress, stage director, teacher and coach.

Kate has directed over two dozen stage plays, written three stage plays which have been produced across Canada, and has taught thousands of students in the craft of Acting. She is known for her creative tenacity and fearless exploration of otherwise difficult subject-matter, as well as her humour and deep scope of expression.

As the founding Artistic Director of Vancouver’s prestigious Railtown Actors Studio (www.railtownactors.com), Kate works closely with a highly trained ensemble of professional actors.


Ronan Reinart

The Orchard is Ronan’s 3rd feature film as cinematographer. With the keen eye of a stand-out cinematographer and a wealth of experience in editing and digital visual effects, Ronan brings a deep understanding of the filmmaking process—both in production and post-production. This is invaluable on set, as it allows a leaner more efficient production environment and results in stunning visuals that otherwise would not be available to smaller independent productions.


Michael Collins

The Orchard is Michael’s 7th film as a producer.  Michael has spent the last decade working as an assistant director in the Vancouver film industry on films such as I Robot, Underworld 2 & 4, Night at the Museum, Deadpool, and Star Trek. As such, Michael has extensive experience overseeing the most demanding and complex production environments. He brings to The Orchard both his impressive practical experience and a passionate creative sense, honed over a decade in the film industry.
