Kailey Spear & Sam Spear
Kailey and Sam Spear, collectively known as the Spear Sisters, are director/writer/actors (and twin sisters) originally from Bowen Island, British Columbia. Their passion lies in character-based genre film, particularly world building in fantasy and sci-fi.
In 2012, they completed the four year film program at Simon Fraser University. They have since directed both in both theatre and film. Their 2014 stage version of HAMLET featured the first female Hamlet in Canada. In 2015, their short film THE MARY ALICE BRANDON FILE (a TWILIGHT prequel), was the winner of the “New Voices of the Twilight Saga” competition hosted by Lionsgate, Facebook, and Women in Film LA. For their work on that film, the twins were recognized by Women in Film LA at the Crystal & Lucy Awards, and then by Women in Film & TV Vancouver with a Spotlight Award. In 2018, their short film CC was a Crazy8s winner. After completion, it played in numerous festivals worldwide and won many awards before ultimately finding a home on CBC Gem (and DUST internationally). Their most recent short film, ALIEN: ORE was made with 20th Century Fox and Tongal in celebration of the 40th anniversary of ALIEN (1979).
