CFC Features is pleased to announce the selection of an exciting new project for development currently entitled OLD STOCK. The project comes to CFC Features from four CFC alumni: writer Dane Clark ('08), producers Geordie Sabbagh ('08) and Cher Hawrysh('05) and director James Genn ('03).
OLD STOCK is a comedy about 21 year old Stock, who, after living comfortably for three years in a senior's residence, is forced back into the real world to rediscover his youth and win back the heart of the girl that he lost.
Dane co-wrote two films from the 2009 CFC Short Dramatic Film Program: MAN v. MINIVAN and HOW EUNICE GOT HER BABY and is one of the recent winners of the Praxis screenwriting competition for OLD STOCK. Prior to CFC, he co-wrote the BravoFACT short, BACK IN '93, which toured a number of Canadian festivals.
Sabbagh has worked in all mediums of entertainment including film, TV, radio and new media for some of the most innovative companies in the world including: the BBC, Canwest and Discovery. While at the CFC, Geordie produced the short dramatic film ONE NIGHT. He recently founded his own production company and has a number of television and film projects in development including: ALMOST CRIMINAL and PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE.
Hawrysh has worked in all aspects of the industry from development through production, post and marketing in Canada, the UK and the US. While at the CFC, Hawrysh produced the award-winning short dramatic film EMPTY ROOM and has received acclaim as producer of Velcrow Ripper's theatrical documentaries: FIERCELIGHT and SCARED SACRED.
Genn has made several award-winning films including his CFC short THE DOG WALKER. He's directed over 25 episodes for TV including: RABBITTOWN, ROBSON ARMS, EXES AND OH'S, THE ASSISTANTS, and CALL ME FITZ.
