The cameras are now rolling in Edmonton on the set of 12pt Media’s 3D Romantic Adventure/Comedy 40 Below and Falling. The film will be shot in native 3D using custom built side-by-side and beam-splitting rigs. This new cutting-edge technology has been adapted to effectively shoot in freezing Canadian temperatures and can be easily transported to many different locations – including the Rocky Mountains.
‘We’re able to tap into whole new markets with 4K 3D, and being set in the mountains means we will be able to explore the environment in a way never seen before’, says Producer Andrew Scholotiuk.
The cast and crew will be shooting across Alberta and all around Edmonton under the guidance of Director Dylan Pearce. Joining lead actors Jewel Staite (Firefly) and Shawn Roberts (Resident Evil) are superb Canadian actors Shaun Johnston (Heartland), Cindy Busby (Heartland), Mark Meer, Francis Damberger, Stephanie Wolfe, Janice Ryan, Sevinn Joshee, Mark Labelle, Howie Miller, Mark Kandborg, Belinda Cornish, Reamonn Joshee, Christopher Craddock, Christine Sokaymoh Frederick, Darren Arsenault, Samuel Marty, Ashley Barlow, Tom Edwards, Adrian Young and Whopper the Bear.
40 Below and Falling tells the story of Kate Carter (Jewel Staite), a small town school teacher who is moving back to the big city for her wedding. When a blizzard strikes, her flight gets cancelled and the roads are shut down, leaving Kate no choice but to hop on the back of a surly stranger named Redford’s (Shawn Roberts) snowmobile. As they battle the winter elements together and their adventures unfold, Kate slowly starts to question the choice she has made about the man she is set to marry.
With an exciting team of producers at the helm - Executive Producers Darren Arsenault, Corinne Ferguson, Pierre-Andre Rochat, Producer Andrew Scholotiuk and Associate Producer Jim Dorey - the film is off to a great start. 40 Below and Falling is currently scheduled to be broadcast in Canada on Super Channel in the fall of 2015, with an international release being handled by distributor DARO Films out of Monaco.
