Velma Barkwell

Music Supervisor,
East End Music Productions
Owen Sound, ON, Canada
Velma Barkwell is a proud Canadian Music Supervisor, and member of the Guild of Music Supervisors of Canada. Her work includes the highly acclaimed and award winning television series Mr. D, Sensitive Skin, Trailer Park Boys, Michael Every Day, and the hilarious new comedy, Crawford Series. Her feature film credits include Enemy (starring Jake Gyllenhaal), Into The Forest (Ellen Page), Hyena Road, Afghan Luke, Moving Day and all of The Trailer Parks Boys feature films. She has served as executive producer on original motion-picture soundtrack recordings including Trailer Park Boys - The Movie, The Saddest Music In The World, Enemy, Childstar, Clean and Mambo Italiano. As lead negotiator she licensed thousands of recordings in her previous role as Director of Music Licensing for Sony Music Canada. When she's not up to her neck in music and contracts, she works at a Long Term Care facility, caring for the elderly (this really makes her heart sing). She holds a PSW certificate (with Honors) from Georgian College, a certificate in the Core Fundamentals of Hospice & Palliative Care, and is an Emergency First Responder. Velma runs her music supervision company from her home in Owen Sound on the beautiful shores of Georgian Bay, and is usually wearing scrubs and comfy shoes.
