Our team

Clayton Hansler

Producer / Director

With his first written work being published as a wide-eyed 18 year old, Clayton gained an appetite for setting his sights high and accomplishing the unexpected from an early age.

 

His production career began shortly thereafter at a small production company specializing in lifestyle programming, but it was not until joining Leafs TV that Clayton produced his first half-hour program.

 

Following that first venture into the sports documentary market, Clayton took the helm to help create All For One, a sports follow-doc series focusing on Major League Soccer’s Toronto FC which he went on to produce and direct for the three seasons it aired on Canada’s TSN and Rogers Sportsnet.

 

Clayton continued to create more than 50 additional episodes of All For One designed specifically for the digital viewer. He now brings more than 15 years of television experience as he helps form the next incarnation of narrative and documentary storytelling.

Sean Keay

Producer / Head of Development

Starting at theScore Television Network as an editorial assistant in 2005, Sean has spent the last twelve years working at some of the most innovative sports companies in North America.

After the seven years at theScore (leaving as Manager of Social Media), Sean has spent time working at the Canadian Olympic Committee as Manager of Digital Partnerships and Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment as Manager of Digital Content & Marketing.

 

When Sean finds time outside of work he spends it watching more sports, playing retro video games and hanging out with his family (wife & two cats).
