Renegade:  The Emily Carr Story

As social issues force their way to centre stage in a globalized art market, RENEGADE will tell the story of a Canadian painter and author who brought a bold new style to capturing the wild Canadian West. From 1871 to 1945, Emily Carr charted her own course from British Columbia, to studies in the US and Europe, then back to the colonial western Canada. She lived a rebellious life as a passionate artist, largely focused on a very personal celebration of First Nations communities and the huge and rough natural world of British Columbia.

New Theory Pictures is currently in development on the production of this feature documentary.  Email Don Millar to learn more.

Rising Tide

As climate change threatens the planet, this fictional story of a big oil conspiracy has never been more relevant. Currently in development, Rising Tide follows a young blogger as he breaks an explosive story about a corrupt oil company, then quickly finds himself in the crosshairs of their corporate and para-military machine.
