Making documentaries that focus on interesting people to share their stories with audiences all over the world.
Lian graduated from the international Prague Film School in 2013 with a speciality in editing.Since then she has worked on various television shows such as Save My Pet (Pet ER) and Republic of Doyle, as well as started up her own business Tin Bird Productions which has been very successful and has made a name for itself in St. John's, Newfoundland.
Lian took a break from creating her own work to ensure her business' success but in 2016 began working on her own personal projects again such as the Documentary "Flight of the Fisherman" for which she won two awards. Her second documentary "Behind Banana Vacuum" won another two awards as well as 9 official selections. She has also produced, directed and edited an episode of CBC's Canada's a Drag on local drag queen, Irma Gerd, in early 2019 which was broadcast on national television. In the past few months Lian has also recently produced 4 short videos for CBC as part of their Creator Arts Network highlighting local fashion designers in St. John's and one artist studio in Fogo, all of which were broadcast locally on CBC and are now available to view online.  
Lian enjoys making entertaining content for viewers to experience so they can see the different lifestyles of others all over the world.
