About the Twins

Identical twins, empathetic interviewers, creative digital artists, passionate storytellers, dedicated journalists.

Welcome and thank you for taking time out of your day to explore our curation of stories. We appreciate your interest and support!


Our names are Amanda and Brittany van Frankfoort and we are 25-years-old. We are proud graduates of Carleton University’s prestigious Journalism Program from which we graduated with high-distinction earning Bachelor degrees in Journalism with minors in Communications and English. 


We are the co-founders, co-owners and co-content producers of our own video journalism company predicated on producing meaningful storytelling in the areas of inclusion and equity, sports, entertainment and stories of interest to the Ottawa area through video, short documentaries and interview content.


As life long athletes our passion for sports runs deep. We began playing football and soccer at the age of 5 and haven't spent a summer off of a football field since. Between the two of us we've suffered a concussion, a ruptured ACL, three torn menisci, a broken elbow, a clean-through break to a pinky, three broken fingers, a ruptured ACL graft, a deltoid tear and a third-degree ankle sprain. But we can't wait to get back on the field.
In 2017 we began Timeout with the Twins to share unique human interest stories demonstrative of the transcendent power of sports and entertainment. We do all of the ideating, filming, editing, audio mixing, and producing for our videos.
We are passionate about sharing stories that speak to the greater meaning of our interactions as community members and the power of human connection. We are driven to uncover and share the beating hearts of stories because we appreciate unique and undiscovered stories that showcase the value and meaning behind sports and entertainment.

Our heartfelt thanks for reading and best wishes,
