Melanie Howe

25 - YYC/YYZ

I am a Canadian creator who studied film and television production and acting, improvisation, and theatre in Toronto. My passions include film and other media, local events, social activism and reform, rollerskating, and art— in many ways, shapes, and forms. Let's work and create something new together!

Upcoming and current projects

Whatever Happened to Alice Monroe?

This online scavenger hunt ran from April 11th-18th as a part of Verb Theatre's 'Blue Light Festival', centred around the mystery of the titular character Alice's disappearance. The audience-guided mystery hooked and thrilled participants, and is still available and live to explore.

Alice Monroe starts here.

The Rest Is Electric

This intriguing Canadian narrative science fiction podcast about robots and drama began airing on May 26th, available on most major podcatchers. I have a minor VA role in the second episode and also assisted in other capacities in the creation. New episodes air every second Tuesday.

The Rest Is Electric lives here.

Make It About You

I wrote this short about self-isolation and how it affects our perception of the self, especially related to mental and physical health. The film will go into production late 2021.

Fossil Dating

This short film I wrote and directed for the challenge #InspiredbyTENET is currently in production.

Fossil Dating is streaming here.

[Untitled Sketch Show]

I'm currently in the process of creating my own sketch comedy show. This project is deeply personal to me and I'm excited to share it with the world.

If you're curious about how you could get involved with my sketch show, shoot me an email!
