ROMER MEDIA is headquarters to award winning freelance Producer, Director and Writer, Pieter Romer.
Romer comes from the Nisga'a wolf clan or Laxi'buu in northern BC and descends from Frisian seafarers in Northern Holland. He studied theatre at Kitsilano Secondary School and Motion Picture at Capilano College.
In 2000, Romer got his break as a Story Producer for the award winning Indigenous current affairs series CTV First Story, working his way up to Senior Producer. Over 14 years he produced, directed and wrote half hour stories in art, culture and politics, winning numerous prestigious TV awards. First Story became the longest running aboriginal current affairs series in Canada.
Romer's work for CTV and APTN led him through the unforgiving temperatures of Nunavut, to the edge of the Barren Lands of the Northwest Territories, to scouring the dusty archives of the American Museum of Natural History in New York with the Haida Repatriation Committee. Romer has also worked internationally documenting the Ainu in Japan.
More recently ROMER MEDIA completed a co-production with Death & Prosperity called Black Rock for CBC GEM. You can view BLACK ROCK in our portfolio section.

When Pieter was promoted to Senior Producer at First Story, we immediately challenged him to turn it into a program that would get notice and win some industry awards.

His people skills made for a happy shop and his journalism skills made for good television. He would be a strong asset to any organization. - Tom Haberstroh, CTV Vancouver VP & GM
