The new feature film Summer of Discovery continues to move along in production during the summer of 2017. The film’s director and writer Corrinne Wood is at the helm and the production is under the banner of IME films, in association with Matthew Marshall’s m & s Marshall Production.
The cast of Summer of Discovery features a number of very familiar faces as they were a part of Marshall’s short film Malicious Attack. Both productions included; Morgan Flanagan, Helena Rose, Tinadra Edwards, Aaliyah Paul, Ian James Smith, April Booth, Corina Leatherdale, Talitha Wood, Serena Webber, Max Steinberg, Kyra Ramos, Emma Lee Willsie and Jamie Rainbird. But Marshall cautions, “Just because you see a lot of the same faces don’t expect to see the same style of characters. A number of the cast take on very different roles” Says Marshall. One of those is Morgan Flannagn which Marshall says “you will hardly recognize in some parts of Summer of Discovery”. Flanagan is the lead role of Megan Mathews in Summer of Discovery. Serena Webber who had a small part in Malicious Attack plays a bigger role of the little Sister Abbey Mathews in Summer of |Discovery. April Booth has a role very different in Summer of Discovery to the one she plays in Malicious Attack. Same goes for Helena Rose. Summer cast members Talitha Wood and Corina Leatherdale were among the cast of Malicious Attack but they also had major roles in Tuned In as well. Helena Rose was also part of that short film. “When you find people you like to work with and they have the diversity to play different roles you bring them back”, says Marshall
Malicious Attack was directed and written by Marshall and was lead by Marshall’s company m & s Marshall Productions but IME Film’s was in association. “The two companies work side by side and whoever’s film it is takes the lead” says Marshall about the partnership. IME is lead by Wood but also includes David L Jackson who not only is a producer of the film but also the Director of Photography, Also Mike Beausejour who is another of the producers is the film’s editor.
Summer of Discovery filmed on Saturday at the Old School Board Building on Elmwood Ave in London, Ontario. It is now the YMCA Children’s Centre. The location looks very much like a school and that was key to the look for the scenes that were filming. The film continues to film for it’s third day on Sunday June 25th at a private residence in London and then will continue on throughout the summer with production due to wrap by the end of summer. The film is going to be family rated and is a coming of age film for many of the main characters.
