“This is a golden opportunity,” says producer Jason Rogerson. “A project of this scope could really bring some attention to the many great filmmakers, actors and technicians here on PEI. It could only lead to bigger things for the PEI film industry as a whole.” Produced by Periscope Pictures, Kuperman is a feature length, micro-budget comedy about Griffin Kuperman, a smalltown zero, who must face his fears, snap out of his fantasty world, and become a hero in order to save his comic book store, his friendship and himself.
The team is extremely grateful to have the support of the Island Media Arts Co-op and Telefilm Canada as they move forward with their application. If selected, Kuperman will shoot later in 2014.]]>

My favourite thing to do is facilitate creativity. I’m looking forward to working with the IMAC membership to help build programming and present opportunities to make this happen. The intention is to become a true cooperative where we can work together to learn and grow from each other and tell our stories. IMAC is a place for filmmakers, writers, actors, artists and anyone else interested in the media arts.
I’m anticipating a wonderfully creative time for IMAC. I look forward to hearing from members and prospective members about what they’d like to see in IMAC’s future.]]>
