Its been a whirlwind of a year since we pitched Grey Mountain to a jury at the 2018 ALFF Pitch Event but somehow we managed to complete post production just as ALFF 2019 ramped up.
It was amazing to finally get to share the film with audiences at this year's festival alongside some incredible Yukon made short films. We plan on partnering with Jordy Walker of Stackwell Sound to make some changes in our music composition then its off to the races with a whole new slate of festival submissions. Stay tuned for updates on where you can see Grey Mountain.
For the past four years the Yukon Film Society has been putting on a pitch competition at the Available Light Film Festival. With a hankering to get back into producing fiction content we dusted off and re-vamped a well loved script that Marty wrote last year - we were excited for the opportunity to practice pitching and dig into some fiction content but were totally blown away when the jury awarded our project Grey Mountain with one of the two production prizes. To hear more about the competition and the film check out this interview we did with Dave White on CBC Airplay. Stay tuned for Grey Mountain coming 2018!
