Forward-thinking, creative, and tirelessly committed to her craft, Caroline – the newest member of Barbershop Films – brings a fresh and astute eye to our post-production team. Caroline was born and raised in Kunming; a city in southern China known for its temperate climate. In 2014 her family moved to the anthesis of cities known for their temperate climates, Regina, Saskatchewan, where she attended Luther College. An avid fan of film and visual art, Caroline began studying and freelancing as an editor and graphic designer for various companies across Canada. Caroline began as a post-production intern at Barbershop Films in the summer of 2022, and immediately, her natural gifts were clear. If there is a technical element of post-production that Caroline hasn’t mastered, or a new video trend on social media that catches her eye, she will spend virtually every waking hour sponging up the necessary information in order to sharpen her skills. That dedication and resourcefulness, combined with her natural eye for detail, makes Caroline an editor with boundless potential, and someone who undoubtedly has a bright future in the film industry. When Caroline is not in the studio, she’s usually working out at the gym, watching horror films, hanging out with friends, and not sleeping.
What’s one irrational fear that you have?
I really hate mice and rats. It’s really a phobia. I can’t even look at pictures of them. Even a hamster.
Who is someone you admire, and why?
My dad. He’s really strong, kind, and a considerate person who can survive any bad situation. So he’s the one I admire most.
If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
I want to have multiple versions of myself so I can do many, many things at once.
What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?
Be yourself. And love yourself. Don’t care about what others say or think.
If you could only eat one dish for every meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Anything Chinese cuisine. Perhaps some rice noodles from Kunming. The province in China I’m from is famous for its rice noodles.
What’s your favourite smell? What’s your least favourite smell?
My favourite smell is the smell after rain. I also like the smell of cigarette smoke. My least favourite smell is a trash can. Especially a kitchen trash can.
