Over the past few years I have been running a small production company called Midland Film Club. Through it I produced quite a few short films covering a whole range of genrés. Most of my films were about local things – significant events taking place, profiling different businesses, award shows, people, etc. I’ve also produced some music videos for local artists, a short comedic-horror film, short documentaries, and even an award-winning 74-minute documentary all about what it means to be local. But there was a problem with the name. Originally it was meant to be a club of filmmakers who wanted to collaborate, but it ended up being more of a production company for my own projects. The ‘club’ part of Midland Film Club became a bit of a misnomer, but I stuck with it for a while, as it was starting to gain some traction in town. As my filmmaking career progressed into feature films and working with distributors and broadcasters, more opportunities for funding future projects present themselves. Problem was, most of these funding opportunities require that your production company be incorporated and Midland Film Club was a sole proprietorship. So in the interest of progress, I decided it was time to incorporate and with that I decided it would be the perfect time to change my business name as well. Thus Midland Film Company Inc. was born.
Through Midland Film Company Inc. I, along with a very talented team of producers, performers, and filmmakers, will create entertaining works of fiction and engaging documentary presentations that embrace a local spirit. We will produce a range of different films that will be shown around the world in various film festivals, competitions, & compilations. We will create exclusive web content that will highlight our local community while giving it a universal appeal. We will challenge ourselves and push our creativity to the limits on every project we pursue.
