Neil Bregman

Neil Bregman is President and founder of 33-year old Sound Venture Productions, one of Ottawa's largest and most successful independent film and television production companies.

Originally formed in 1980, Sound Venture Productions started as the first radio commercial and audio production company in Ottawa. In 1989, Sound Venture turned its focus to the bigger challenge of competing in the international world of film and television production.

Under Bregman's direction, Sound Venture has established itself as a leader in the production of performing arts, documentary, cultural, and children's programming (The Toy Castle, Homes By Design, Foot Notes: The Classics of Ballet). Bregman continues to produce new programs every year, adding to the 250+ hours of proprietary titles in Sound Venture's catalogue. Bregman acts as Executive Producer on all of these programs, as well as a Producer on most of them. Distribution is handled in-house through Sound Venture International.

Since 2002, Bregman has aggressively expanded into the world of film and television drama production working on TV series (Body Language, 18 To Life) feature films (Decoys, Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, Summer's Moon) and over 60 television movies (H2O, The Stepson, Another Man's Wife, Offline).

Bregman has been an active member of the industry, having sat on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Film and Television Production Association (CFTPA) for 9 years, the Board of the Ottawa-Gatineau Film & Television Development Corporation for the past 4 years and currently acting as a member of the Creative Industries Advisory Group for the City of Ottawa Film Commissioner's office and Invest Ottawa.
