WE CREATE COOL – CREATIVE CONTENT
The genesis of our creative content division came from our restless desire to take our own creativity and to realize it in the form of films, books, and other tangible works of art for people to experience and enjoy. Our work is inspired by our interest and expertise in special effects, theatre, film, prosthetics, design, custom fabrication, and 3D. What distinguishes us from other creative content providers?
We have an established, recognized, award-winning history in special effects, fabrication, and now film. We have credibility. We have an identifiable brand that people recognize as uniquely creative with a finesse that speaks to our attention to detail.
We’ve been a creative incubator for fifteen years. We’ve invested in the community, resulting in growing a talented base of artists and technicians. We’ve been the training ground for student interns, theatre graduates entering a competitive job market, special effects make-up artists seeking employment, sculptors and props-maker, hobbyists who want to learn how to do the effects they’ve seen in the movies, and those who simply want to be part of a creative company. We’re the company that people approach when they want to learn from the best.
We’ve shown we can do it. Our first project – the award-winning short film Skeleton Girl – had us learning stereoscopic 3D and stop motion animation. We broke new ground; Skeleton Girl was Canada’s first combined stereoscopic 3D stop motion animated short film. Called “a creative and technical accomplishment on multiple levels”, it premiered in New York at Be Film, The Underground Film Festival where it won “Best First 3D Film”. It was selected as one of the top short films in Canada, participating in CBC’s 2013 Short Film Face Off, one of only 9 nation-wide, and it screened at film festivals around the world, including the renowned San Diego Comic Con. This told us that there’s a demand for what we’re doing, and we can compete with the world’s best.
We’re innovative. Turns out we were being innovative without even knowing it when we created Skeleton Girl. We didn’t know at the time that we were the first Canadian company to be shooting in stereoscopic 3D and stop motion animation. Why was that? Well, we were too busy doing the work and learning to even have an inkling of that. And because being innovative is something that is a part of our DNA; we’re not interested in the status quo. We want to break new ground. We’ve taken lots of risks and as painful as that can be sometimes, we want to push the envelope and do new and interesting things, for ourselves and for our clients.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR US?
We’ve started work on our next 3D stop motion animated short film to follow up on Skeleton Girl, called Mary and the Looking Glass – the second in an anthology of films called Twisted Tales for Demented Children. We also have a few other projects in development including one about the stories surrounding an antique ship engine that travels across the globe, through time and generations, from Denmark to Newfoundland to its current resting place in Alberta.
