Some of the buzz our film has been creating:
What's the film about?
Owl River Runners, is a coming of age story that will emotionally move you while keeping those belly laughs coming.
Synopsis: Jaime joyrides on the back-roads of Owl River, population: sinking. She’s going nowhere fast, and it’s the same in life. BFF Paula pressures her to apply to colleges, papa Hal just wants to keep her out of juvie. But Jaime can’t know where she’s going until she knows where she comes from. When ex-con Ray shakes her down for the whereabouts of a stash, Jaime learns her departed grandpa Graham’s family secret: he ran the biggest pot-ring East of Montreal.
Now Jaime must recruit Paula and hapless admirer Stevie if she’s going to outmaneuver tough-guy Ray, the corrupt police chief Hines, her estranged mother, and a straight-laced deputy and lay claim to her birthright.

Sooo... Only 10K? What Gives?
Owl River Runners is the New Brunswick selection for the IndieCan 10K Canadian Film Challenge. This means we are challenged to make the entire film on a $10,000 cash budget, but we have to raise the cash ourselves. Winning the challenge comes with very generous sponsorship from a host of sources, experienced mentorship at every step of the process, and distribution of the film once completed!
High quality films on shoestring budgets is something that we a lot of practice in. We love what we do and we don't do it for the big paychecks. Our track records speaks for itself. Some of our successes are a couple broadcast licenses, opening festivals internationally, and being awarded for the film locally and internationally so I promise we won't disappoint.
Still though, it's a large scope. What's your plan?
I am a collaborator by nature. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I’ve got the support structure in place so that as a team, we do! And with the IndieCan10K initiative, many professional services ensuring quality are provided so we’re looking for enough money to feed our cast and crew and to cover the bare necessities like travel, insurance, rentals and a little extra to cover the cost of these great perks that you can get for your contribution.
What will my contribution get me?
Any perk you want, our endless gratitude and an opportunity to participate in this film either directly and indirectly. Just think about it, you're not only helping us to make a film, you're actually giving an opportunity for New Brunswick talent to be recognized on a National and World Stage.
Also, with any contribution over $70, we’ll recognize you by adding your name in the credits — in addition to any perk you select. Check the list below:
