Talking to Canadians about Canadian Movies

I take to the streets of Toronto to get Canadians’ impressions of Canadian film. Hilarity ensues.

Help us make the kinds of Canadian films we want to see. Join us at guyongirlfilm.com

We’re Flyweight Films, an independent, Toronto-based production company that aims to change the rules of Canadian cinema by focusing on developing new models of funding, challenging how Canadian films are perceived at home and abroad, and creating profitable, festival-quality films that portray new visions of contemporary life in English-speaking Canada.
Our first film is Guy on Girl, an original 22 minute theatrical drama written and directed by PDN Award-winning photographer, filmmaker, and writer Chris Frampton, produced by Julie Haroutunian, and slated for production in July, 2014. It has a robust international festival strategy, and is our ‘calling card’ project for a feature-length dramatic film. 

Take a moment to check it out on Indiegogo and also share it with your friends. All the tools are there. Get fantastic perks, make a contribution, or simply follow updates. If enough of us get behind it, we can make ‘GUY ON GIRL’ happen!

We were recently hired to do another series of videos for TEDx UTSC. This year I asked the speakers to write an original 150 word essay on the topic of convergence, recorded them reading these pieces in a soundbooth, and then cut tiny 1 minute portraits together from personal and stock media, all set to an original piece of music I wrote for the project. 

Matthew Cimone is a documentary filmmaker working on a feature about the final space shuttle mission, called Chasing Atlantis. Listen to this great story about how his life converged on this moment.
