Crossfield House Productions reel
Toronto based, award-winning, director and producing duo, Sheronna Osbourne and Troy Crossfield are co-owners of the production company Crossfield House Productions (CHP). By producing and directing films that are For Us, By Us, their goal is to show Black people in all their beautiful complexities.
Together, they have directed an award-winning film, RONi (2020 Audience Award Toronto Short Film Festival) and play A Little Black Lie (By Blacks People’s Choice Award). They have also directed and produced content for major brands such as Sony Music, Wray & Nephew, and TD Bank and have had their productions performed in Accra, Ghana , Washington DC, and Atlanta, Georgia.
A gifted storyteller, Osbourne was awarded the Canada Arts Council Digital Creatives Grant which she used to create Silence of The Land (2020) a timely social justice piece about being Black in Toronto. Also, an actress with an eye for fashion, she is a Costume Buyer for the IATSE film union, where her costume work can be seen on Netflix Original series Locke and Key, Grand Army, and OWN networks The Kings of Napa. As an actress, she is a member of ACTRA and has worked on campaigns for Google, Netflix, Walmart, and Tazo Tea and can be seen in the upcoming series Reacher.
Crossfield is a multi-hyphenated artist with talent in theatre, film, and music. In 2017, Crossfield recognized the gap in Black stories being told and so he wrote his first play, A Little White Lie, which was an immediate sell out. Since then he has consistently written, produced, and/or directed award-winning productions in the film, theatre and music video. Also an ACTRA member, he can be seen in Fear Thy Neighbour, and the upcoming Sisterly Christmas (OWN TV).
Recognizing the importance of nurturing and supporting young talent, both Osbourne and Crossfield have worked directly with youth through the Ada Slaight Youth Arts Mentorship Program and the Forgiveness Project to give opportunities to young adults who wish to develop their skills in front and behind the camera.
