Film crews will be busy in Anmore on Friday to shoot the ending to a new web series.
Nord-Stewart Productions will be at 3025 Anmore Creek Way — a log cabin that will double as a Big White home — for Young & Reckless, a five-part comedy web series that stars Leo-nominated actor Devon Ferguson (How to be an Actor) and Sierra Pitkin (Juno).
The story is about a law-school dropout, played by Ferguson, who volunteers to babysit the daughter of his neighbour; however, he soon finds out the 13-year-old girl (Pitkin) is bad news.
The show is directed and produced by Brianne Nord-Stewart and written by Andrea Shawcross. Also in the cast are Christina Sicoli (Afterparty, Paranormal Solutions), Doron Bell (DinoTrux) and Seth Isaac Johnson (The Killing).
Last year, Nord-Stewart was one of five B.C. producers picked by Telus Optik to receive funding. Her team was mentored by consultant Annelise Larson, producer Andrew Williamson (Motive) and writer Mark Farrell (Seed, Corner Gas) in partnership with Canada’s National Screen Institute.
Young & Reckless will be distributed this fall through Telus Optik’s Video on Demand and YouTube channel.
