Are you interested in commissioning a documentary project? Do you have some funds and a vision for a film, but not necessarily the experience, skills or interest in producing it yourself? Consider reaching out to Brad with your idea to see if we might be a good fit together in producing your next film. Often clients and community groups have chosen to maintain ownership or executive producer status over the film, but have given Brad the freedom to run with their idea and take it from its concept to its completion on time and on budget.

Whether you are an individual wanting to make a personal/family history documentary, or a nonprofit organization who would like a short film to accompany a multi year research report, we would be excited to take your next idea from script to screen! Send a message on the contact page.

TRT: 17:11

In Winnipeg's inner city, and espcially in West Broadway and Spence neighbourhoods, older homes converted to rooming houses are an important type of housing for many people living on low incomes. However, rooming houses are fast disappearing due to an uncoordinated policy and regulatory framework and market pressures. In addition, there are many day-to-day problems associated with rooming houses related to challenges of poverty and aging houses. Research finds that these inter-related issues should be dealt with together (CMHC 2002). See the full report: https://www.policyalternatives.ca/publications/reports/rooming-houses-rooming-homes

TRT: 30:46

What is the Royal Proclamation of 1763? Most Canadians have never heard of it, yet the Proclamation is a part of Canada's Constitution, and for many Indigenous peoples, it is the 'Magna Carta' of our Treaty tradition. What significance does it have today? Join a delegation of Indigenous leaders and church guests as they journey to London, England to mark the 250th Anniversary of the Royal Proclamation and to meet with the British Crown. Discover why this old legislation matters not only to Indigenous peoples, but also to settler Canadians. • For a discussion guide on the documentary, see www.mennonitechurch.ca/tiny/2375

 

ARAS ABID AKRAM:
PROFILE OF COURAGE

RR

(2011)

Filmed & Edited by Brad Leitch

TRT: 9:00

My very first documentary short, filmed in Northern Iraq in 2010.  This was filmed on tape and before I owned an HD camera. This small video remains a very important project for both the lessons learned that still shape my career, the challenges of dealing with difficult material, and the opportunity to meet some remarkable people in Kurdistan.
