Senior Advisors

Matt Palmer

To fulfill Vermillion’s mission to improve public literacy with accurate, useful and high-impact media – and to attract people to constructive insights into full-spectrum issues – we need guidance and production assistance from world-class talent. Enter Calgary filmmaker, Matt Palmer.

Matt has been in film for the past 20 years as a writer, director and producer working in drama and documentary. His newest project is a multi-format feature (TV series, web doc, education) called Unintended Consequences, looking at the externalities of the energy systems that many regions will need to transition from high-carbon to low-carbon economies.
