Trevor Mack is an emerging Tsilhqot'in (Chilcotin) First Nations filmmaker currently living in Vancouver, BC. He was raised by his mother Barbara Mack and the rest of his family in the Williams Lake and Tl'etinqox (Anaham) area for most of his life. Although his cultural work wouldn't appear until his graduation of high school, Trevor started working with media, editing, and film when he was only in elementary school. He would create video game 'montages' and upload them to the internet where they would receive millions of views from around the world. He would later help form a freelance video editing, motion graphics and videography group called 'Viral Design' where they were flown across North America to produce product promotional videos for companies such as Red Bull, Steelseries and Gunnar Optiks. After moving to Vancouver, BC in 2011 he was accepted into Capilano University's 'Motion Picture Arts' program where he would complete the first year and move into the 'Indigenous Independent Digital Filmmaking' program the later year and eventually drop out. In 2011 Trevor would create a short PSA video for the First Nations Health Council 'Active Spirit, Active History' film contest in where he won the $5,000 grand prize. The next year he would place second place in the FHNC 'Safer Nations' video contest. Since then he has worked as a contract videographer creating videos such as documentaries, PSA's, and promotional videos for companies such as Provincial Health Services Authority, Interior Health, and Thompson Rivers University.
