Michelle Orlando - VP, Head of Production

Michelle Orlando loves producing. Loves it, loves it, loves it loves it. She’s been loving it since she left Humber’s Broadcast Journalism School, and realized that Production Assistants (the lowest place on the production totem pole) made $1000 a year more than she did. After that, it has been all-production, all the time for Michelle.

After doing long format work at the CBC and Radio Canada, followed by a production stint in Italy, Michelle turned her talents towards advertising production. Why? ‘Because,’ she says ‘I wanted to turn concepts into reality.’

Before joining Saatchi, Michelle honed her talents at Commmuniqué and then John St., becoming one of this country’s most respected producers. She has shaped productions big and small, for clients as diverse as Moores, Holiday Inn, Harvey’s, Warchild Canada, Stanfield’s and Kruger. And along the way, she’s won enough awards to make any Creative Director jealous, including honours from Cannes, The Bessies, the Cassies and the One Show.
