Stephen King’s Maine

  •  Maine, USA
  •  Production
About the project

Prolific horror writer Stephen King grew up and lives in Maine, so it is no surprise that most of his stories are based there.

In this film, we travel to King’s Maine and immerse ourselves in the world that inspired his novels and short stories.

See the real Derry where IT terrorized children for centuries. Although King writes fiction, a lot of his tales are based on real events, like the Brady Shootout and the killing of a young gay man during Canal Days Festival in Derry (oops – Bangor).

What is Amphibian

  •  York Region, Ontario, GTA
  •  Pre-Production
About the project

When you go to the cinema you are probably not watching a film anymore. See, hear, feel, and be amazed at what was once common for every student.

What is Amphibian – One title on a 16mm film among over 800 rescued from the growing trend to trash real films.

16mm film was once the most common way that students viewed media to learn about everything from Geography, Physical Education to Animals and Nature. Today most high school kids have never even seen a 16mm film. Go to the theater today and you will rarely hear that old whirring and clicking of film passing through a projector gate. Universities, colleges and even companies like the National Film Board of Canada have disposed of all their film stock and moved to digital.

This short doc tells the story of the film library of Western Michigan University, saved from the trash twice to live on a little longer in an age of digital media and forgotten film.

 About the project

Everyday we take things for granted – big things like the sun rising, the rain that gives us life, and little conveniences like the volume control on our radio, without thinking about them or pausing to appreciate how great they really are. This film takes a look at the big and small things that are all around us, yet we really don’t see.

Choices (Working Title)

  •  Toronto, Canada
  •  Development
 About the project

Along the lines of Sliding Doors, but filmed in an experimental style, Choices follows a young woman as she travels on a bus. As she chooses to get off at a stop, the film intersperses her one choice of getting off the bus with an alternative choice to stay on. As the film continues a second choice is made. The film explores the relationship between destiny and free will. The end result may surprise you.

 About the project

Short film that uses identical video but different sound and different reveals. First version is foreboding audio and second is light hearted and fun. The end of each reveals that what appeared to be one thing was in fact the opposite. Shooting targeted for Summer 2015.
