Ray Harper Bio

Producer, Director, Editor...Ray Harper's career in television and film started accidentally. To put himself through Art School, he got a part time job as a film editor at the National Film Board. Editing hooked him and he's been sculpting films and television programs ever since. Now he does a lot more producing and directing, but he still loves to get into the editing room and put programs together. He still approaches each new project with the same enthusiasm as he did in the good old days, before he knew how much he didn't know. Over the years Ray has become know as a master of the art of the possible -- his work is described as innovative, honest, and elegant.

Ray Harper is a producer, director, editor, and occasional writer who has been working in film and television production since 1975. Early on he ran his own film post-production company and taught college and university courses in art and design. Then he spent sixteen very busy and highly productive years at ACCESS Network (a provincial educational broadcaster). When he left ACCESS he was acting Senior Producer. Now Ray is back working in the private sector producing, directing and editing. He currently owns and operates: NetworkONE Productions and is a partner in Summit Films Ltd.

Ray has edited many documentary, dramatic and educational films for ACCESS Network, TVOntario, CBC and CBC North, CTV, Discovery and Vision, as well as many National Film Board productions. Harper edited Anne Wheeler's A War Story which has won awards worldwide and has been translated into more than twenty languages. More recently, he was producer, director and writer of the 13-part ACCESS Network/NFB co-production, Brittain on Brittain. Harper was the co-producer and associate director of the Gemini Award winning NFB film, Donald Brittain: Filmmaker, and was the director, writer and editor of the NFB film Coppermine. Ray has also won many other national and international awards including the New York Film Festival.

Ray has just finished a National Film Board documentary project on single custodial fathers called Life with Dad, and a Nature/Wildlife documentary called The Return of the Peregrine -- for CBC's The Nature of Things. He's currently working on a video about Spina Bifida, a documentary for NFB on Polio, and a 13 part nature documentary series called Discovering Wildness for Discovery Channel.
