Canopy is a community of artists and other creatives. Located on four acres in the heart of austin texas, Canopy facilitates many artistic movements. This place was formally a goodwill wearhouse. Four building have been carved out to created small studios, offices, a coffee shop, and trailers. There’s a common area in the center that unites creatives in a small lot.
Austin is known for its art and music, Canopy is the center of many artistic activities in the capital of Texas. I’ve have been apart of an internship for a film production company, who work out here. It’s been a year, and I am now an associate producer. Many important career opportunities have been bred here, and I’m happy to be apart of this community.view trailers
The trailers are where most of the artist meet!

I have been working with Bita since June of 2022. Since then, We have working on multiple projects together. There’s definitely a difference from how I started. At first, I was only an intern. However, after working together closely for the last year, I’ve been promoted to Associate Producer. It feels like a pretty big deal! I’m very thankful to be working in a business where sometimes I feel but stifled by demographics dominating film. Women and queerness are something I’ve always gravitated towards, so I feel good working with this company.
