Nerds unite! The time is drawing near for the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo. Every year, we’re honoured to speak on a panel or two about filmmaking and new media. This year, however, Matt and Scott will be on four panels throughout the weekend. We invite everyone who wants to pick our brains to join us! Here’s the schedule, still marked as “tentative”:
Matt and Scott have embarked on their 10-month journey through the National Screen Institute’s Features First program on the road to producing Synapse. Their first phase was an intensive week-long session in Toronto, where they were deep into story editing and discussions with agents, distributors, executive producers and more! Phase 2 was another week in Toronto for Matt, and a mindblowing script consulting session for Scott.
Now, they’re off to Toronto to pitch their feature at TIFF.
They continue to blog and share their stories through the process. If you’d like to follow along and learn as they do, bookmark this post and they’ll update it throughout the program.
Back in July, Scott was interviewed for the HI -FIVE series in FREQ Magazine, where he discussed the nature of the Calgary video production industry and how to balance Creative and Corporate Video Production.

We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve been selected as one of four teams for the NSI Features First program, described as a development training launch pad for Canadian Producers and Screenwriters.
Our application with Scott’s feature screenplay Synapse marks the first time in 16 years a Calgary team has been selected, and the second Calgary team ever in the program, since our friend and mentor Jason Long participated with his feature film Turning Paige.
