As I have alluded to previously this summer and fall was full of some amazing projects and opportunities for Checkered Owl. One of our biggest projects was the creation of Afterlight. Written and created by Sarah and Rew Jones (the owners of Checkered Owl) Afterlight is a family adventure show that explores the meaning of community as well as our relationship with technology. We were so thankful to work with TELUS STORYHIVE again and create this show!

We shot the show in Sexsmith, Alberta (who were absolutely fabulous to work with) with a fantastic crew of folks based in both Grande Prairie & Calgary, Alberta. It will initially be released across STORYHIVE’s channels including Facebook, YouTube, and the TELUS Optik network.
