Hello, Friends!
This is a chance to be part of a fun and unique film that engages the local community in an exciting way.

It says that Durham Region is ready for something new and this is just the beginning.

When you contribute to the making of this film, you are also supporting:
-Women in film
-Women in film over 35
-Canadian independent film
-The growth of the film industry in Durham Region
-The growth of small business downtown Oshawa

There are several ways you can show your support.

1. Contribute funds here to help us finish the film and market it to festivals. 

2. Sponsor aspects of the film through your business.  Visit www.mastersofromancemovie.com for more information. 

3. Help by sharing!  Sign up for our newsletter on our website and follow us on social media to stay posted on updates and share with your friends.

Why Oshawa?
The Durham Region is developing the local film industry and I thought what better way to do that than to produce a small independent film that takes place in Oshawa? 

Like these four characters, Oshawa is struggling with shedding its less-than-glamorous history in favour of something new and exciting. Hopefully, by casting a little romance on the city, this film will help to change this outdated perception.


The Team:


Cast/Co-Producers:
Yolanda Beasley - Mob Stories, The Komagata Maru Incident
Roger Doche - Covert Affairs, Transporter
Paloma Nunez - Spotlight, The Girlfriend Experience
Jefferson Brown - RED, Carrie, Silent Hill

The Story:  "Masters of Romance"
This film is a fun, fantasy romcom about four forty-somethings who can't seem to get love right. 

Former Oshawa high school sweethearts Krista and Alex cross paths twenty-five years later, but have one day to figure out if they can make their relationship work.  

What This Means To Us & How Thankful We Are:
With a small cast and crew, we need cheerleaders.  Knowing you're behind us from the very beginning will help fuel our fire.

Hello friends!
I'm happy to say we are getting close to the final stages! Since last fall, we have brought on a music supervisor, Lloyd who is doing an incredible job at reaching out to some fabulously talented indie bands to create the soundtrack to the film. We have also brought on Reiva our Sound Mixer/Editor and Ozzy our Picture Colourist.
With every stage, the film gets better and better and we're extremely proud and excited about how Masters of Romance is turning out. Can't wait to share it with you. We will keep you updated in the meantime. Thank you for your continued support! It's not finished yet and we still need funds to enter film festivals. Thanks to Preston, we have an additional $100 contribution. Keep spreading the word about Masters of Romance! Our success is your success! Thank you for helping to make a movie.

We launched our official movie trailer last Wednesday at the Oshawa Cultural Summit. Thanks to you, we were able to get this far!

We are submitting to film festivals now and are still raising funds to cover the submission fees. Next up is Berlin and Tribeca starting at the end of this month! We need another $300 to submit to both! So help us spread the word by sharing our trailer and the link to Gofundme.

The cast also appeared on Rogers Television promoting the film so you can watch the segment with Yolanda, Roger and Jefferson here.

Thanks for joining us on this journey so far, we're excited about what's to come and grateful you could come with us!
