Here’s a sneak peek at upcoming film and television we’re busy creating.
YOUR HEART IS THE SIZE OF YOUR FIST – Based on the True Stories captured in Dr. Martina Scholtens non-fiction memoir, Your Heart Is the Size of Your Fist is a medical drama that draws the audience into the complicated, poignant, and often- overlooked daily happenings of the only urban medical clinic for refugees in Vancouver.
PRISON BOY – A multi-season Drama Series revolving around Sam Hawksley, a thirteen-year-old boy who is the only child in Canadian history to grow up living inside a women’s prison as part of a pilot project to test the value of maintaining familial connections for inmates and their children. That is, until Sam is thrust from his prison home and into the outside world after his mother passes away from cancer. Now living with his aunt and uncle, he discovers through his mother’s personal effects that there is more to her conviction and incarceration for killing his father, a decorated police officer, than he has been led to believe. Unable to ignore the connections he sees, Sam sets out to solve the mystery, equipped with a unique set of skills (and social deficiencies) learned over years growing up on the inside.
COMMON GRACE – After spending six months running from her past, Colleen is forced to return home for her father’s funeral. Coming home means facing her grieving mother, meddling sisters, intrusive community and the love of her life…not to mention his furious and devastated wife. Between the flowered cards, unspoken grievances, over-priced caskets, and hidden bottles of wine, Colleen must decide if she can fit into the world she left behind. The company is developing this feature film with writer/director Shauna Johannesen.
