Brunella Battista

Brunella Battista is Producer and Editor at dB digital TV.
Brunella is an Italian landed immigrant in Canada that has enthusiastically made the very best of what this beautiful country has to offer. She opened dB digital TV in 2000 with David H. Lyle, through the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Youth Entrepreneurial Program.
Since then, dB digital TV’s videos have screened at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the World Peace Forum for the United Nations, and to the Chinese Olympic Team. Brunella has worked on shows broadcast on Channel M, CBC and Bravo! and is a long time ACTRA member.
Her favorite part of the business is editing, for which she has a keen eye, but she has enjoyed working in front and behind the camera in many roles. She was “Dumpty” in the Gemini Award winning Canadian “Polka Dot Shorts” series produced by TVOntario and released in 33 countries, as well as “Rosa Brusco” in the feature film “Almost America” which screened at Cannes, on Italian National TV and on the Movie Channel. She is also a coach, teacher and mentor and has been an instructor (of Film, Acting, and Stop Motion) at Douglas College, The French International School of Vancouver, and now at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.
As a producer and filmmaker, Brunella’s most recent video “Chilliwack: A Welcoming Community” screened at the 2014 Immigrant Symposium. Some of her bitcoin videos (produced with David Lyle’s own bitcoin companies) have reached the ten thousand viewers mark! One of her videos, aptly named “We are waiting for You!” where she was Director of Photography, Camera Operator, Editor, Producer and Co-creator, gained 1500 hits on the YouTube channel of the Tourism Vancouver in just one week. The video, commissioned by BC Les Clefs d’Or, pre-screened at the Shangri-La Hotel, then premiered to attending ministers, ambassadors, and the most important people in the tourism industry during the annual Les Clefs d’Or Gala at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Brunella is also a fervent conservationist and is Secretary and on the board of directors of the Canadian Marine Environment Protection Society.
