JUST ANOTHER DAY is a short animatic film. It tells the story of two everyday Toronto police officers getting’ the job done.
The year is 2014. Toronto streets are rife with crime. Day after day the city’s finest fight the nefarious criminal element lurking in the shadows. Who are these seeming superhumans keeping watch? JUST ANOTHER DAY tells the story of two everyday Toronto Police officers gettin’ the job done.
JUST ANOTHER DAY is a collaboration that was made through the encouragement and support of the Women’s Committee of ACTRA which sought to get more women writing producing and acting in films. The writer/producers were looking for a way to create a project of their own that, at the outset seemed wildly impossible for their resources and practical filmmaking skills as they both have more experience in front of the Camera than behind it. Ruth Tait artist, illustrator and maverick joined the project as well as Quebec heavy hitter Emilie Gauvin and the team was off to the races! The film was storyboarded with pencil and paper and then digitized to be coloured and become an animatic. John Gzowski created the soundtrack with original composition and live Foley sounds recorded in a tiny basement studio tucked away in downtown Toronto.
In preparing JUST ANOTHER DAY we were looking to create a film that celebrated our imagination and inspirations and worried little about taboos. We were blessed with an incredible team who worked tirelessly to meet deadlines and patiently to allow us to complete a project which is fresh different and exciting. We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.
