Pre-production & Shooting episode 01
Director | Malube
Malube is an accomplished artist: director, writer, actor & content creator, hailing from Montreal, Quebec. She lives and breathes her artistry. She’s fallen in love with bringing female-centred stories to life in whatever form of storytelling she can. It is important for these stories to be told through a female lens.
A special thank you to Roselyn for trusting Malube to collaborate on artistic visions for episode one of Fail Better. Malube’s hope is that stories told by females continue to encourage empowerment within the known and unknown obstacles women face. She is thrilled to be taking part in narratives where women are finally being seen as multidimensional & complex human beings on screen.
She will continue to contribute and create stories that that highlight the complex, human experience. She will continue to reclaim her time.
Director of Photography | Angel Navaro III
Angel Navarro III is a Filipino - Canadian Director of Photography residing in the midst of the Greater Toronto, and Hamilton Area. He is a versatile cinematographer, who has a strong background in both camera, and the lighting department. His style evolves and adapts depending on the production, not limiting him to natural light or studio setups. Whether its a 'run n gun,' or a highly controlled shoot, he is capable to accommodate and execute what is both needed and best for the project.
Angel continues to expand his knowledge, and push the boundaries of his craft. He is currently seeking new collaborations from any creatives.

Marc has a long track record in management. He was the Production Manager for The Tragically Hip's video for their single The Lookahead, and Marc has produced dozens of artistic and entertainment-based productions, for stage, screen and as a bar owner and restauranteur.
Marc is also an actor, musician and writer born in London, ON and living in Toronto, ON. As an actor, he has appeared in short films (SheepSh*t, Stock Boy and EMDY) and in the webseries (Love in the Backseat). He has also worked as a stage and voice actor. He has been playing in bands for over 15 years as a singer, percussionist and song writer/collaborator. He is currently playing in a 4-piece outfit called Skip Ad . Marc has been studying with LS & Co acting studios for several years.
1st Assistant Camera | Artem Mykhailetskyi
Artem does cinematography-related jobs for narrative film, television and web content, such
as camera operating, cinematography, gaffing, gripping, and assisting camera. He has shot live
events, engagement and music videos for 5+ years before he started being involved in the film
industry. Now, he's a Toronto Film School student going into my last term, having already shot
short films, POCs, web series, live shows and assisting camera on a feature film. He was very
excited when he was asked by the DP of this project, Angel Navarro III, to camera assist for him
and gladly took the opportunity. When he's not doing that, he tends to spend time on watching
awesome films or having a good time with friends.
