FEATURED PROJECTS

BLAME SOCRATES (2011)
FEATURE FILM: COMING OF AGE “DRAMEDY “

Synopsis: When a sorely misunderstood teenager, Walden Whitmore, accidentally burns down half his school, nearly killing his favorite teacher, he runs away in the hopes of forgetting his past and starting a new life. With the police not far off his tail, he creates a new identity with everyone he meets, this allowing him to unleash parts of his personality that earn him the most acceptance he’s ever known. But it’s not until he’s caught and brought back to witness the results of his actions that he must truly face the mistakes he’s made and answer the hard question of who he wants to be: the common screw up who passes by on second chances, or the man who finally takes responsibility, even if it means suffering all the consequences.

Blame Socrates is a story that spins the coming-of-age film to give us a look through the eyes of a teenage anti-hero who finds that there is still redemption, hope and humour – even when the world seems bent on seeing you suffer.

A THING CALLED LOVE (2011)
FEATURE FILM: SATIRICAL COMEDY

Synopsis: In a perfectly civilized, yet loveless world, where society has happily found a balance for virtually everything, it seems nothing can disrupt the annual animalistic routine of mating partnerships. Though when one eccentric male named James suddenly becomes aware of an ancient plague that has been kept out of the public eye for hundreds of years, he discovers that he may already be infected.

As James tries to uncover what exactly it is, word of this plague spreads into the community and threatens to erupt into the outside world. Fearing a global epidemic, serious measures are put into affect to find and destroy any link to this potentially life-threatening disease. But as James digs deeper, putting his own life at risk in the process, it becomes clear that perhaps this plague, so feared by all, might not be such a bad thing after all…

KIDS ARE GHOSTS
FEATURE FILM: DRAMA

Synopsis: The fort by the lake was a nice place to start, but the lake always needed a raft. And for thirteen-year-old Caleb and friends Max, Nathan and Emily, building it seems to be the only escape from a life that doesn’t seem to want them in a city where there’s nothing to do. The precocious kids are on a destructive path, destined for juvenile hall or worse. Having already stolen cars and built pipe bombs, their newest plan to rob the local liquor store will put them in major peril and will end in the greatest tragedy any of them will ever know. Intercut between dark moments of reckless abandon and an airy youthful serenity, Kids are Ghosts is about leaping before you look and paying the price for it.
