This film is con-currently in pre-production and production. That is, we plan and shoot at the same time — we are trying something different in our approach to making it happen. A Few Details ABout Me Trailer can be found here.
A Few Details About Me is about Imogene, a solitary woman with few friends and very little ambition. She tries to understand what her life is about, but discovers her life is meaningless. She spirals down to an empty void. But how do you go about adding meaning to your life?
A Few Details About Me borrows somewhat from the “Slow Movie” tradition of Van Sant, Jarmusch, Cristi Puiu, Todd Haynes (Safe), Jia Zhang-ke, Pedro Costa, Abbas Kiarostami among others. This is the third film for writer-director-producer John Stopa.
Searching for the Big One tells the story of JULIE, a 20-something former stripper who meets up with MIKE, who’s in his late 20’s. The location of their meeting is a cheap motel room just outside Toledo, OH. And why do they get together? Simple: to have sex.
But it turns out not to be so simple at all! First of all, they’re interrupted by John, a volunteer from the Bible People who knocks on the door, intending just to come in and replace the tattered copy of Scriptures with a brand new one. He ends up causing a guilt trip for both Mike and Julie, who have now lied to a man of God.. Their 24 hour quickie is quickly dissolving as other issues emerge too — issues from both their past and the present too. Mike ends up taking a radical step that nearly costs him his life, and that forces the motel owner to kick the couple out of their room. Both Mike and Julie are left searching for answers; they’re left searching for the Big One. The film stars

We are a film and video production company based in the Renfrew County region of the province of Ontario, Canada. We love movies — especially +movies that explore the depths of the human condition. Ours are not action, guns-blaring, shoot-’em-up style films…. Not that there’s anything wrong with those! We just like to make dramatic films that look at human feelings and situations.
Our first feature film is Searching for the Big One starring Ella Modella and Mihajlo Kos, and featuring Carolyn Roberts and Dave Campbell. Searching… is the story of two people who get together to have
sex, be friends with benefits, but discover that they just cannot go through with it — each for their own reason.
Our current project is the film A Few Details About Me, which stars Ella Modella. It’s about a woman who discovers her life is meaningless. Both production and financing are con-currently underway. The set completion date for A Few Details About Me is December 2017, with a release date set in 2018.
Our long-term goal for 2018 is to produce and film Shakespeare’s play King John. While it’s not one of his better known works, it is nonetheless one of the Great Master’s works, one that has never made it to the screen. We want to change that. Pre-production is underway.
