About My Work
Je fais de la recherche depuis 15 ans. Durant plusieurs années., comme recherchiste visuelle pour une boîte de production publicitaire. Par la suite, à la pige pour différents réalisateurs, sur des campagnes publicitaires (recherche de références visuelles: images, vidéos, films, "stock footage", archives, recherche de contenu également). Depuis les dernières années, je fais de la recherche pour des projets de long-métrage et documentaire. Un des derniers projets majeurs complétés fût le film "Hochelaga, terre des âmes" du cinéaste François Girard, sur lequel j'ai travaillé durant plus d'un an à la recherche de contenu (historique, références visuelles, archives, iconographies, etc).

About My Work
Researcher, archive producer, copyright specialist and librarian. I have 20 years experience with visual and editorial research, copyright administration and clearances for footage, stills, music and talent. As information resources manager at Pyramid Productions, I enjoyed research for development, editorial and visual research and copyright clearances for a variety of projects, including documentary films and television, books and an award-winning TV movie. Credits include: A&E Biography, Ian Tyson: Songs from the Gravel Road, Theo Fleury: Playing with Fire, Curveball: W.P. Kinsella, The Film Festival Project and In a World Created by a Drunken God.
My latest documentary film project, Undetectable: How Stigma Has Gone Viral in the Fight Against HIV, was shown at the Calgary and Edmonton international film festivals and at the LGBT Toronto Film Festival, where it won the audience award for best short film. “Shely Henry was our archival producer, and scoured countless resources to find and clear the archival footage and images seen in the film. A talented archival producer is key in historical documentaries!” (Laura O’Grady, Undetectable Director, https://www.booooooom.com/2022/01/03/undetectable-interview-laura-ogrady/)
I am a resourceful and creative problem solver who enjoys a challenge. I love finding special visual content that helps tell the story.
