Roana Wullinger

 Roana Wullinger is causing quite a buzz on the US film circuit. In a largely male-dominated profession, Roana has established herself as a master of all the technical aspects of filmmaking – in both the visual and audio aspects of film production. Roana considers herself fortunate to discover her passion for filmmaking at an early age, which allowed her to pursue an education dedicated to learning every detail of how to make a brilliant film. Determined to learn all the different positions on a film crew, Roana frequently produced projects that experimented with a specific aspect of video or sound – such as lighting techniques, sound recording experiments and editing effects. She’s found a place at the table working with Hollywood heavyhitters, such as award winning husband-wife directing team Daniel Lir and Bayou Bennett of Dolce Films, who are working with her on their feature “Skateboarding with Saddam”, as well as Bodhi Elfman, who chose her to be the director of photography for one of his film projects. She has worked with Stan Harrington, the multi-award winning actor and director, and the driving force behind Xristos Productions, and directed/produced/edited music videos of Raindrum, the band headed up by Thomas Hjort (formerly of the Swedish rock band Cross – who has sold more than 8 million records to date). She’s also shown her prowess as a director – putting all the pieces of her technical knowledge together to create engaging stories.

 Though she loves directing, Roana, ever the perfectionist, also plans to continue working as a sound engineer and behind the camera in order to make sure she’s up to date with the newest developments in video and sound, and that she doesn’t lose her edge.

She has numerous projects on her plate, including Open Range Pictures Russian gangster feature “The Cool Kids”, as well as “Skateboarding with Saddam” by award-winning Dolce Films, and “Dee Pee” and “Roses are Red” with Maria Abraham Pictures.
