Secretary/Treasurer - Maxwell Dowie
Maxwell Dowie has had a passion for make up since he was a kid. That passion prompted him to pursue a professional career in makeup. He went to Vancouver Film School where he learned the advance techniques of the trade. After school, he returned to his home in Nanaimo and has become a prominent member of the local filmmaking community and culture. As a director and writer, his love for make up has a strong influence on the movies he makes. Max believes Nanaimo has the potential to be a major indie hub for film production and a backdrop for content that has high production value.
