IMAC is so excited to announce that “Wharf Rats”, a web-series developed by Jason Arsenault, Robbie Carruthers and Dennis Trainor and produced by Jenna MacMillan, has won the Telefilm Micro-budget Production Program fund this year.
Of the five years that this program has been in place PEI projects have won three of them. IMAC’s Executive Director, Renee Laprise has been closely following the project since it was submitted for consideration, “I knew as soon as I saw the project that it would be a no brainer for the Telefilm jury. The application was extremely well crafted and the project is funny as heck. It was too good to say no to.”
“Wharf Rats” has also been shortlisted for the highly competitive Independent Production Fund.
With an already established viewership (some videos have over 300,000 views already) we anticipate Wharf Rats will become a huge success. Check out their facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/wharfratspei/
