Screen Shot 2013-10-07 at 10.43.36 AMIt’s a wrap for “Hattie’s Heist.”

Thanks to all those who have supported Hattie over the past two years, we completed shooting “Hattie’s Heist” in Victoria, B.C. on October 1st.

Directed by John Kent Harrison, veteran actress Maxine Miller plays Hattie, Christopher Gaze (founder of Vancouver’s Bard on the Beach), her retired RCMP officer suitor and Matt Frewer a frantic policeman.  Local Victoria actresses play Hattie’s Gang who zip about on mobility scooters with great zest throughout the picture not forgetting the “singing policewoman” from Victoria’s Pacific Coast Opera.  A well trained Yorkshire Terrier, more used to riding Harley Davidsons than acting, plays Hattie’s sidekick.

The film shot over 4 rain-lashed days.  Cast and crew remained good humoured and professional during this soggy shoot.  Protective sheets of plastic were de rigeuer. Prior to principal photography locals remarked, “Oh the weather is lovely at the end of September. The light is beautiful.”   Not so!  Nonetheless the rain gave the picture a certain luminous quality.

“Hattie’s Heist” is presently in post production in Toronto, Vancouver and Los Angeles.  And, yes, we’re back to fund raising to cover the cost of post.  See “Help Hattie” here.

Directed and co-written by John Kent Harrison, “Hattie’s Heist” is produced by Patti Poskitt with Pat Ferns and Prudence Emery serving as Executive Producers.  Alix Cameron is co-producer.
