Ally Fiola breathes life into Blue & White Soundtrack

We’re super excited to be working and collaborating with Ally Fiola, a saxophonist and composer from Nova Scotia. Her collaboration and work on our upcoming short film Blue & White, shows off her jazz expertise, as well as her playful experimentation with tones and melody. She brings with her an air of excitement and professionalism that would be a valuable asset to any filmmaker.

In collaboration with Plateau Entertainment, Blue & White (2022) focuses on one man’s daily struggle living with ADHD.

County House Pictures Favourite, Wendy German, scores role in Netflix film!

Wendy German, Producer and Director of County House Pictures’ upcoming short documentary Finding Orleen (2021), makes headlines across Canada including this article in the Blackburn News. Wendy, also known for her role as The Curator in County House Pictures’ The Acrylic (2019), tells us how she landed this role. 

“Wendy German has a long list of television credits, but the Windsor woman is about to add a feature-length film to her resume. In ‘Clash’, she plays a Canadian mother with a big secret.

“My agent sent me a breakdown and said, ‘hey, do you want to go to Toronto for this?’ I was living in Windsor at the time,” she said. “They auditioned me, and I knew something was happening because as soon as I finished, the director looked at me and said, ‘can you do that again?’ So, I did it again, and then he jumped out from behind the table and was giving me all these directions. That doesn’t usually happen at an audition.”

The Acrylic | Now Available Online

After a year of festival submissions, I’m happy to finally share our final film online for all to see! Thank you to all our supporters, IndieGoGo backers, and everyone who helped make this film possible.

For my first time directing anything, I’m really proud with how this turned out. However, that being said, let’s move on to our next project! In the famous words of, William Faulkner, “Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.
