What is The Quiet Canadians?
All government's need assassins. But where do they find them? Somewhere, a young man or woman languishes in a classroom, certain that their time could be better spent. Once and a while, one of these kids finds a mentor, and that person steers them towards a lifestyle in a necessary, yet unacknowledged professional segment of society.

The Quiet Canadians is a feature-length thriller about one operative's life as he becomes an assassin, gets his first mission, and how he reconciles his chosen field with his relationship with the "normal world". 

Who is behind The Quiet Canadians?
The Quiet Canadians is co-created by Helena Thom and Anthony Epp. It is based on a novel by Warren Thompson.

Helena and Anthony have worked for almost 10 years in television and film. Most recently, Anthony worked on Motive, a television crime drama on CTV (in Canada) and airing on USA Network. Both Anthony and Helena have Assistant Directed on successful feature films (Complexity, starring Emilie Ullerup, Prodigals, starring David Alpay & Sara Canning, and The Iron Sixth, starring Michael Bean), television shows (The Switch), and webseries (The Drive). They are currently in post-production on their first feature film, 13 Miles, set to be released in the fall of 2018.

How is this project funded? What's the funding for?

Making a feature-length project can be surprisingly expensive - there are numerous costs involved with doing a project legit, including production insurance, location permits, actor and crew salaries, and legal paperwork. In addition, the scale of the project means we'll have to hire on additional post-production personnel, such as editors and visual effects artists.
Over the last two years of making films in the "lower budget" range, we've learned to be flexible and resourceful with our budgets. Every cent raised for this project is going into the production, so the more we raise, the bigger we can go with this project.

Also to put things in perspective, we're putting this series together for less than 1/500th of the budget for the last Bond movie.

What's the status of the production?
The Quiet Canadians is currently in development, meaning we are raising the money and putting together the team that will bring this feature fim to life. Production is scheduled to begin in Spring, 2019, with a planned release of January, 2020. 

How can I help?
By pledging any amount, you will be elibible for exclusive and early behind the scenes news, videos and photos as we bring the movie to life. You'll see casting and crewing news, as well as any other tidbits we can throw in there.

We are working on other rewards as well, and would love your comments on what you would love to see. 

With your support through Patreon we could take the project even further. We want to maintain and improve upon our high quality of cinematography, set the bar high for production design, stunts, special effects makeup, sound design and editing.

Most importantly, the team behind THE QUIET CANADIANS is a dedicated group of talented film craftspeople in Vancouver, BC, or "Hollywood North" as it is known around the world. The standards for production here are high, as is the quality of people who work in the industry. Many of our crew are involved in The Quiet Canadians because they are passionate about the potential and the story. Your funding helps hire people and creates good jobs for skilled people, from talented actors all the way to the craftspeople that make cinema special.

With your support you make sure that we can invest more in this project and make it even better. Be sure to check out our original pitch video for the webseries from 2016 to get a sense of what the movie is about!
