Aleysa Young spent her formative years between Vancouver, Saskatoon and Indonesia. Today she is a Toronto based director with Untitled Films. Prior to this, she was a casting director, a producer of RESfest Canada, and a blackjack dealer in Dawson City – not concurrently, though she’s perfectly capable. She has shot spots for Mitsubishi and Toshiba, but also non-Japanese clients including Caramilk, Molson, McDonald’s, a variety of laundry and paper products, and award shows including The Bessies, and Cassies Awards. Her mom’s favourite is “the one with the bitchy turkey lady” for McCormick Gravy. Young is currently working on awesome TV shows. Her recent CBC hit Baroness Von Sketch Show was an instant success and has been called the funniest thing on Canadian Television since Kids In The Hall. Her work has been recognized by her mom and a few others, including: Cannes Lions, Bessies, Marketing Awards, Advertising & Design Club of Canada, Applied Arts, Shark Awards, Boards Top 10 Emerging Talents in Toronto, Shoot New Directors Showcase, to name a few.
