Best Composer for Rae Spoon at the Toronto Women Film Festival 2023: What an honour to work with the amazing musician Rae Spoon. Their music score elevated our QUINN documentary and we’re so proud they received the Best Composer Award from the Toronto Women Film Festival.
Challenging but super creative and fun shoot of Swallow, Dear Swallow – a hybrid of live animation and music video with lush, visual story telling. An honour to work with talented musician/performer Wendy McNeill and our small but dynamite creative team.
ROSIE awards by AMPIA Alberta Media Production Industries Association.
Grateful and super excited about our multiple AMPIA nominations for documentary QUINN and our animated kids shortfilm DILLY DIGGER.

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.

Yeah!!! - And that is ACTION in our animation studio as we are shooting Dilly Digger and the Mushroom Adventure using our much researched and improved, brand-new and unique shadow puppet animation style combining traditional shadow puppetry with more current animation elements.
We’re starting the new year by renovating and building a new set-up for our upcoming animation projects. Even the Covid masks can’t hide our big happy smiles.

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.
Thank you to the selection committee and the support and vision of the Banff World Media Festival, Super Channel, and the Government of Canada's Women Entrepreneurship Strategy (WES).
