Krystn Madrine - Producer, Director, Photographer, Actor

Krystn Madrine is a producer, director, writer, photographer, actor and artist. She is the founder and director of Norwood Evans Production and Design Studio, a new creative collective in Traverse City, MI. She manages artists and their social media needs, providing photography and film for her clients.  Krystn specializes in womens couture and corporate identity portraiture, and in music video production for local and regional artists.

Krystn was a home birth midwife for over 28 years. She had a huge practice in both birth and bodywork, and she served many international students and plain (Amish) communities in three different states. She was very active in midwifery politics and served as legislative liaison for two different midwifery organizations. She had five surgeries on her hands, forcing her to move into another interesting phase of life. Her current personal project is a documentary film about Amish and Mennonite midwives.

Krystn is a Deans List student at Northwestern Michigan College, seeking a degree in Fine Art, Photography and Film. She is active in Michigan Movie Makers, and is a certified producer for Up North Media. She acts whenever possible, and just portrayed Mrs. Watson, mother of John Watson, in the web series, A Finger Slip. She serves as an assistant manager for the videography department of the Traverse City Film Festival, supervising the digital intake of over 40 videographers' worth of footage. Krystn has been an environmental activist for many years, and now uses her art as a political statement.

Krystn is interested in serving the WMFVA by being a bridge from the active northern Michigan film community, becoming involved in social media and outreach, and by developing more opportunities for women in film.
