Cameras Roll on CFC Pilot "MY PAL, SATAN"

TORONTO, April 2, 2009CFC (Canadian Film Centre) is pleased to announce that principal photography is currently underway on MY PAL, SATAN, a CFC TV Pilot Program production consisting of six, five-minute episodes intended for online distribution. Shooting takes place this week in studio from March 30 – April 3, 2009.

Created and written by CFC alumnus Dennis Heaton (FIDO, BLOOD TIES) who also serves as showrunner, MY PAL, SATAN is produced by Bryce Mitchell (CFC Producer's Lab '07), directed by Vivieno Caldinelli (CFC Director's Lab '05), and edited by Aren Hansen (CFC Editor's Lab ‘06) and Matthew Hannam (CFC Editor's Lab ‘05).

MY PAL, SATAN takes odd-couple comedy to the nth degree by planting Donna (Rachel Wilson), a fresh-scrubbed Pollyanna, in an urban apartment with the epitome of pure evil – Satan (Jefferson Brown). Whether they're arguing over the fate of mankind or the fact Satan doesn't lift the toilet seat, Donna and Satan are reminded that not only do opposites attract, but good and evil need each other to exist -- and pull taffy. This just may be a match made in Heaven.

MY PAL, SATAN is produced with generous donations from several of Toronto's top production and post suppliers and services, including William F. White, Technicolor Creative Services, Urban Post, Wallace Studios @ Centennial College, PS Production Services, Location Equipment Supply, Eastern Script, Chubb Insurance, HKMB andStohn Hay Cafazzo Dembroski Richmond LLP.

The CFC TV Pilot Program is looking to take advantage of the relatively newfound viability of online video distribution by using the web as a means of showcasing talent and projects to the largest possible audience and in acquiring a license to produce further episodes of the series, for television or online broadcast. The program works with emerging creators to develop and produce up to six 5-minute episodes that represent the look, style, and tone of their shows. CFC will make the content available on both the CFC, and a project specific site in order to promote the CFC TV Pilot Program, the series, and the skills of the cast and crew who contributed to the productions.

The Pilot Program is funded by the Government of Ontario, and supported by ACTRA, CFTPA WGC, DGC, NABET, and IATSE.
