What do we do you ask…we write, direct, and produce music and films. We originally started when our owner, Rob Letourneau, decided it was time to branch out from writing music. Where, he wondered, can I get our original music heard by more people…films was the answer that came to him rather quickly. Having had experience working with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and a graduate of Trebas Institute he was no stranger to video and audio production.
We have a great team of dedicated passionate people who are doing all of this for the Love of film and being on a great team. Like anything in the entertainment business it takes years to create success and revenue. We have done all of this as a weekend hobby and as we gain more attention through film festivals and showings we continue to enjoy the work and the time we spend together.
Two years ago we had been working on a Christmas movie titled, I Need a Christmas Vacation. Fortunately with the Covid ups and downs we have still managed to get the filming done…good thing it’s a Christmas comedy. We’re releasing it by the end of Christmas 2021. We are pleased to announce our first film festival ‘Official Selection’ at the High Tatras Film Festival 2022 along with some others.
Our latest film, Hometown Mysteries is currently showing at film festivals. We are looking to begin filming our second feature film in the series for Hometown Mysteries 2 in the fall of 2022. We were also honoured as well to find out that we were nominated for 7 awards at this years Hollywood North Awards Film Festival with special mention at the Mountain View Film Festival in San Francisco. The film, A Double-edged Sword, has been an ‘Official Selection’ in 18 film festivals and has won 34 laurels to date. (see list on About Us page). Our Christmas film to date has achieved 5 film festivals with 6 laurels. Our last film “Hometown Mysteries” has also now been in four film festivals and has earned us another 6 laurels.
We are currently beginning to film our latest movie, “Hometown Mysteries 2 – The Case of the Sleazy Manager”. This is second murder mystery film that we are filming in and around the Ottawa area.
We want to thank everyone for their kind volenteer work with us since we are an independant film company. We also help many students at Algonquin College getting their hours for community service. We also want to thank the many volenteers who help us along the way. This is a passion for many.
