Great news! Happy to share that our beautiful, fun animation shortfilm, Dilly Digger and the Mushroom Adventure will have its premiere at the Atlanta Children’s Film Festival, taking place July 7 - 24, 2022. Exact day and time will be determined. 

 

Our small test audience loved Dilly but we are eagerly waiting to find out how the big audience in Atlanta will respond to our story and animation style.

This is Jesse Luce, our hugely creative and skilled sound mix and audio engineer at Studio Post. He is doing double-duty working on sound and audio for both NPP’s documentary QUINN as well as the animated kids shortfilm DILLY DIGGER - hopefully all before the year is ending.

Super excited that the amazingly talented musician/composer Rae Spoon had agreed to do the music for our documentary QUINN. But not only that, Rae now agreed to a brief meeting and interview with NPP’s director/producer Eva Colmers at her new place on Vancouver Island. Rae is the first to watch the whole QUINN documentary and … Rae loved it and was impressed what wide time frame in Quinn’s life we have covered.

Just heard the exciting news that our producer Eva Colmers got selected to be part of the new BANFF Spark Accelerator program at the Banff World Media Festival - this year virtually and next year in person (fingers crossed). As No Problem Productions is growing and increasing its slate of projects, this is an amazing and much appreciated opportunity to learn more about the business part of telling engaging, cinematic stories.

The NSI TotallyTelevision bootcamp in Toronto is totally awesome. And intense! Writer Gordie Lucius and producer Eva Colmers learn so much from one-to-one meetings, workshops and panels and we truly believe this will help move our sparkling LUPITA series proposal forward. We cant’ wait to share our new insights with the rest of our writing team back home - Joleen Ballendine and Joey Lucius who could not come with us.

 

Here are the selected 4 NSI teams with their assigned creative mentors. Huge thanks to the National Screen Institute - Canada (NSI) and Bell Media and the organizers Liz Janzen, Julie Die Cresce, Chris Vajcner and Joy Loewen, the brand-new, wonderful NSI Executive Director.
