Playmaker to Shoot Movie Near Gladstone, MB 

Playmaker Motion Pictures is pleased to announce their latest production, Mockingbird will be filmed August 9-11th in the vicinity of Gladstone, MB. Mockingbird is a psychological horror short film concept to be pitched as a feature film.

”We are thrilled to film in such a scenic part of Manitoba,” says Warren Nightingale, director of the film. “The moment we had a tour of some potential locations, I knew this was going to be the place for us.” Tanis Clayton, who is assisting with the production, connected Nightingale to Rita Geisel. Geisel and Clayton presented some possibilities, to which he immediately decided it was the perfect location for Mockingbird.  

About Mockingbird

Mockingbird is a story about Catherine, an elderly woman who has found life difficult since her husband passed away. She misses her George, but she occupies her time by taking care of the house they shared for over 40 years. Catherine's daughter, Sarah, wishes that her mom would move to the city. Catherine is not ready to leave her home just yet, especially now that George is talking to her. Can that really be him or is it her imagination...or is something else calling her to the forest. 

Neale Bastianns wrote the script following a conversation with Nightingale. After the two discussed the impact sound can make to create mood and tension in the horror genre, they challenged each other to take it one step further by focusing on the subjective sound of the main character—a voice of a deceased loved one, calling her to danger. “I see the film as an allegory for dementia,” says Nightingale, “how can you trust your ‘senses’ when they don’t make ‘sense’.”

Also on Nightingale’s production teams is long-time collaborator Brian Tesiay and Mick Paulusma. Nightingale helped to produce Paulusma’s feature film, Clear Lake (2012), starring Roddy Piper.
