“We decided that Saskatoon was the perfect place to shoot this movie once we learned more about what this city has to offer,” said Katie Weekley, producer at Goonworks Films. “There are great crews, and locations, which made us realize that we could shoot a lower budget feature here and still make it look big city.”
The Karen Lam film features Tinsel Korey (Twilight: New Moon, Rabbit Fall), Sonja Bennett (Battlestar Galactica, Elegy), Tim Fellingham (Truly Blessed, Life on Top), and Saskatoon-native Stephen Huszar (Corner Gas, Paradise Falls). The majority of extras and crew will come from Saskatoon.

“We are very excited to make this film happen in Saskatoon, and we hope to continue this momentum into 2010,” said Bob Crowe, producer at Angel Entertainment in Saskatoon. “We are confident that our co-production partners will have a great experience working here. We have talented crews, and a wonderful city. We are very proud of the high quality shows we’ve been able to produce here.”
