What Our Clients Are Saying
Welcome to the age of interactive filmmaking… Late Fragment glimpses the future of experimental filmmaking, one where techno-savvy hybrid filmmakers exceed the limits of traditional storytelling and where the passive movie goer moves from onlooker to participant with the click of a mouse… If major studios bite on this idea in a big way one day, we may all be watching movies like this in our homes and in theatres.

- Craig Dalton

It is inspiring to see what creators, like DEEP are doing with new technology and how that technology can work into storytelling and entertaining our audiences is very inspiring – we look forward to the future of that.

- President Bell Globe Media
I just wanted to congratulate you on your Polar Sea documentary: it is a great piece that I think sets some milestones in interactive storytelling.”
“I especially like the unique way you are mixing standard footage and 360º imaging “seamlessly” to tell the story, on a very neat production at all levels … I stand up and applaud to you guys!
- Antonio Garcia-Serrano
- Technical Director, Zakato - Immersive Imaging
This gorgeous, 10-part peek at human, animal and plant life in the north–as well as access to traveling the Northwest Passage–is incredible.
The Polar Sea is packed with “holy crap” information segments–not to mention gripping views of glaciers–that are worth tuning in for.
- Greg David
- Senior TV critic for TV Guide Canada on Polar Sea 360
A pioneering feat in the history of documentary filming.
The filming using a 360-degree multi-camera head unit, combined with conventional filming, creates an innovative experience never before seen.
- Karen Graham
- The Digital Journal on Polar Sea 360
As a total experience, The Polar Sea 360 is overwhelming and essential viewing.
- Martin Knelman
- Journalist, Toronto Star
Beyond the physical journey on TV, the story is enriched with an immersive web and mobile experience centered around 360-degree video storytelling.

- TBI Vision - On Polar Sea 360
I was born and raised in Canada but I feel like I am being shown a land for the very first time. I can’t believe the ignorance of what we were fed in school about ice, igloos, eskimos and polar bears. The Polar Sea 360 should receive a gold medal for cultural illumination for the rest of us southerners.

- Viewer Response on Polar Sea 360
Thomas, you were absolutely terrific at Prime Time, thank you for your significant contribution. The images were breathtaking, and your Idea Blast knocked the whole conference into a slightly different, more imaginative space. You were a blast of innovation and creativity, and it was greatly appreciated.
- Marguerite Pigott
- Vice President Outreach and Strategic Initiatives, CMPA
A splendid evocation of a past and a culture–the workers’ theater promoted by the pre-WWII German Communists with plays and songs written by famous artists– that is doomed to obscurity.
- On Solidarity Song
Exquisitely composed and gorgeous to look at and listen to as well as being witty, knowledgeable and informative.
- Globe and Mail
- On My War Years
A powerful film that mobilizes compelling characters who face uncomfortable truths, piecing together the anatomy of a broken system.” –

- Jury Statement on The Guantanamo Trap
Inside Hana’s Suitcase is remarkable… what makes (the film) so powerful is the most traditional technique of all: authentic and eloquent storytelling by memorable characters.

Several rich strands are intertwined in Beethoven’s Hair, a musical mystery tour starring a hard-traveling forelock from Ludwig Van. Side trips into the Holocaust, kitschy Americana, and up-to-the-minute science give breadth to this tale of musical obsession, which never loses sight of the genius that generates the action. This most recent feature from Larry Weinstein (who received a retroretro tribute at Hot Docs, drawn from the Rhombus Media founder’s 20 pics in as many years) deserves noisy fanfare at music-minded fests…Beethoven’s music, beautifully performed by musicians in the Czech Republic (where most of the nicely lit restagings took place) add to the drama, while deft sound design and editing add smooth textures across the board.
- Ken Eisner on Beethoven's Hair
Finding the humanity and joy of existence in the most unique of society’s characters, the film doesn’t reveal too much of his characters all at once, waiting instead to complete its themes until just the right moment. Alive and sprightly like a Mozart seduction Weinstein and Wallner let the viewer dabble here and there as the notes fill the page leading us from one eccentric character to another. Each character we meet seems to represent a facet of Mozart – his love of mathematical equations, his passion for the world, his interest in pure sound, his fraught life – it all plays out through their lives. As the accompanying music washes over the viewer the most compelling moment will come when you realize that through his music Mozart continues to give inspiration and not only to this unique cast.
