Dawn Westlake

News about new short film releases from Ron de Cana Productions, Inc.


From Berlinale to Brazil!

Dawn Westlake is featured in Roberto Christo's blog on February 13, 2014:

Translation: Long live Dawn Westlake!
Only a few people can make a living in art and culture, even with incentive laws and government edicts (like in Brazil) such a task sometimes seems impossible. But everyone in the world faces such hurdles, especially those who are just starting out. Getting sponsorship is difficult in times of economic surplus, so just imagine during crisis!

Thus, our work is a profession of love, cooperation and having to deal with all kinds of people. It's a delicate dance, and we often come across people who drop into our lives with a tremendous amount of ego, who only care about themselves and their 'navel-gazing', putting aside dignity and character, just to get their own needs fulfilled. But thankfully, there are those who really are there for a fair exchange, to grow together in this often hostile environment.

On this positive note, I'd like to spotlight the filmmaker and actress Dawn Westlake . This American living in the mecca of world cinema, Los Angeles, is also a warrior of independent filmmaking . We met because Dawn is a habitué of international festivals, and this is because her films are of very high quality and participate in the most renowned film festivals worldwide. Besides being a great actress, she also directs and produces her works through her company, Ron de Cana Productions , Inc - To date, she has made 15 short films and has more than forty awards in her portfolio.

Recently, Dawn was honorably mentioned in the BERLINALE edition of " World of Shorts Magazine ", which can be seen below.

I wish much success to this example of great professionalism who stimulates us all to want to work more and more.
