IN EARLY 2013 we made a short film called THE PORTAL (if you haven't seen it yet you can watch it at the bottom of this page). Once the film was finished it went on to play a ton of festivals and comic cons and we actually won a few awards too.
We had such a great experience on the short that we didn't want it to end. The idea of expanding it into a web-series was the obvious next step.
IN MARCH 2014 we applied to the Independent Production Fund (IPF) for funding. As part of the application process we put a teaser online to see if we had an audience. Now our teaser has over 2.5 million views.
Thanks to the amazing support of our fans, IPF came on board to help fund our web series. We then approached the amazing team at SIENNA FILMS about collaborating with us and without hesitation they said YES! Soon after that we got a call from CBC's Punchline saying they heard about our project and they were eager to get involved. We were on roll and couldn't wait to start shooting.
IN APRIL 2014 we talked to ERIN KARPLUK (Being Erica) and TAHMOH PENIKETT (Battlestar Galactica & Supernatural) about coming back to star in our web series. They jumped on quicker than we could say Archmage. Our team was coming together.
IN DECEMBER 2014 we shot 8 episodes, the first season of RIFTWORLD CHRONICLES. We had an amazing cast and crew who put up with shooting outside in December. Everything went better than we ever hoped for.
We are now in Post-Production and the footage looks amazing. We are so excited to get it out into the world. We are just looking for a little help to make RIFTWORLD CHRONICLES as cool as possible so we can do more seasons and hopefully expand it further into a TV SHOW, a COMIC BOOK and MORE!!!

RIFTWORLD CHRONICLES has the generous backing of the Independent Production Fund, Sienna Films and the CBC. But you can be a part of it too! We want this to be the most epic, kick-ass web series ever made. Every contribution gets us closer! Every dollar, every pat on the back, every shout-out and share on social media means we're that much closer to our launch. And we can't wait to unveil season one!!!
