Rebecca Davey is a lead in the series as well as one of the creators. For the past two years she has taken films to the Cannes Film Festival along with Marie-Claire. In her spare time she works on her Masters of Creative Writing and takes care of her two daughters, one of whom will be appearing in Running With Violet. Rebecca is an avid eavesdropper—watch out!
Marie-Claire Marcotte is a lead in the series as well as one of the show creators. Her first web series On the Heated Floor was an official selection at ITVfest and at the Raindance WebFest. She is also producing and acting in the feature film Pippa and the Bees written by Rebecca. She is originally from Saskatchewan and fluffy croissants make her really happy.
Lindsay MacKay is directing the series. She is a graduate of the prestigious American Film Institute. Her film Wet Bum premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2014. She splits her time between LA and Toronto. She’s had two perms in her life.
Jessii Vee has made a name for herself on her wildly successful YouTube channel which boasts over 700K subscribers. She is making her acting debut in Running With Violet! Did you know Jessii does her own graphics?
Violet is… well Violet. She is Rebecca’s daughter and super excited to be acting alongside Mama. She is full of smiles and lots of zany turns of phrase. We can’t get enough of this 3-year-old!
Guy Godfree is the Director of Photography for the series. He is a member of the Canadian Society of Cinematographers. His most recent film Maudie premiered at Telluride and the Toronto International Film Festival and starred Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke. He’s originally from Nova Scotia and will charm any woman or man with his accent.
The multi-talented Michelle Irving is composing all the music for the series. Michelle specializes in audio post-production including sound design & editing, music composition, music editing, foley, and mixing. She also DJs under the name Das Hussy. Michelle’s patterned ‘party pants’ make the whole Running With Violet team very happy.
