Director Biography - Devon Robertson

Devon Robertson is a second year student at Humber College’s Film & Television Production program. Since grade school, he filmmaking has been a passion of his. He hopes for his work to not only tell a story, but to wrestle with the minds of audiences,and to inspire others in the same way that so many films inspired him. Everyone has a story and everyone has a voice, some are heard while others are unfortunately washed away. With Deeper Than Blue, it is his truest wish that audiences walk away with that same sense of hope still tucked behind their mind.

Director Statement

As a filmmaker, storytelling only feels like a true accomplishment if there is something to be learned from it. Mental health is something that I have always felt passionate about and struggle with myself on a personal level. Seeing these issues, postpartum depression in particular, that affect so many families & individuals be so overlooked by society is devastating to watch unfold, too devastating to accept it. I teamed up with my colleague, Emily Mahu, to pitch the documentary and from that point forward, the proposal grew into a story. With Deeper Than Blue, it is my core hope that audiences will feel the same sense of hope that Emily and I felt from Amanda's story.
