Romantic Comedy 40 BELOW AND FALLING Shooting In Native 3D 4K - Yours Truly A Producer!

I am so very excited to finally announce that I am a producer on our soon to be shot romantic comedy 40 BELOW AND FALLING 3D starring Jewel Staite (FIREFLY, SERENITY, THE KILLING) and Shawn Roberts (RESIDENT EVIL, X-MEN and EDGE OF DARKNESS). I'm working with an outstanding team of individuals led by Executive Producer Darren Arsenault, Producer Andrew Scholotiuk; and Director Dylan Pearce - this is definitely a movie you'll want to see.

Our stereographer Dylan Reade has done amazing work with IMAX (HUBBLE 3D, UNDER THE SEA 3D, JOURNEY TO THE SOUTH PACIFIC) and I'm looking forward to see the magic that he and Pierce will create in the Canadian west.

Casting Jewel Staite as Kate and Shawn Roberts as Redford is a perfect combination for the story - their personas that you've seen thus far in their careers amplify the characters in 40 BELOW.

40 BELOW AND FALLING is going into principal photography this month in gorgeous native 3D and in 4K on location in stunning Alberta, Canada.
