Yoga avengers, troubled superheroes, and adventures in pregnancy: IPF trailer roundup
Previously on YVR Screen Scene, we told you about a couple of web series that are in the running for Independent Production Fund financing – ‘Hospital Show’ and ‘The Mission’ – and we’re not done yet. Behold three trailers for projects that couldn’t be more different from one another: a feminist thriller that riffs on a Hitchcock classic, a heartfelt comedy about conception, and a character-driven sci-fi piece set in an alternate past. Wildly different, yes, but they’re all creative and compelling, they’ve got Vancouver roots, and we’d love to see each and every one of them go the distance. Give ’em a watch and if you love what you see, spread the word on social media, because those views are an important part of the IPF process. –Ed.
