About My Work Hi There, My name is Rachael Ransom. I've been working in documentaries since 2018, and have had the pleasure of working in several different roles. During the almost 5 years I was at Network Entertainment I worked as a segment producer, casting associate, researcher (both archival and on the story side) and in general administration. My last show, I was an archival researcher on a 10 part hockey series. I was responsible for research and assisting with clearances. Now that I'm a contractor again, I've recently have been working in production and archival on another documentary and was recommended to join VRSC by a colleague of mine. I am doing research and clearances for this role as well. I truly hope to be considered for the VRSC, as I hope to continue to work as an archival researcher. Thank you for your time and consideration! Sincerely, Rachael Ransom

About My Work I am a versatile and intuitive researcher with over 15 years of experience as a researcher/associate producer. I have worked on a broad range of projects, historical and contemporary for both television and feature documentary. I have extensive military and conflict history expertise – WW1, WW2, Vietnam, Afghanistan, 9/11 – but am not by any means confined to these topics. I have also worked on films related to popular culture, music, social issues, identity politics, art and architecture etc. I have researched, sourced, negotiated licensing for a broad range of visuals – film and stills – from broadcasters, archive houses, public institutions and private collections. I can and have cleared music. I additionally have a particular strength in editorial and character research. I have extensive experience delving into story with all of primary sources of a public and private nature, published secondary sources and word of mouth leads. I can identify, locate, pre- interview and gain access to subjects. I have a particular affinity to and gift managing elderly and/or reticent subjects. I can work in both English and French.

About My Work I have 20 years experience researching compelling and engaging visual images. Before moving into visual research for documentaries I was the photo editor at Maclean's Magazine and Hello! Canada so have a solid background in quickly and thoroughly evaluating 1000s of images on tight deadlines and on budget. My areas of expertise are Canadian history and politics, current and archival Royalty story lines and pop culture. I've also researched series on everything from wrestling to climate change to WW2. I am curious about all subjects and have a desire to dig deep into visual research on any topic.
