On a fateful prom night in 2003, dateless and with nothing better to do, Jeremy and Jon made their first short film. Destiny was on the phone, and they had answered the call. A beautiful friendship had begun, and over the next few years, the two began honing their skills as filmmakers with numerous short films and videography projects.
In 2007, they left their hometown of Prince George, BC for sometimes greener, oftentimes rainier pastures in Vancouver. It was here where their pet project, “Geoff and the Ninja”, was born. It was also here where they realized that bringing their ambitious project to life would require an abundance of two things - money and experience. Jon tackled the money, beginning a career in physiotherapy to fund their endeavors, while Jeremy studied TV production at the British Columbia Institute of Technology.
In 2014, the phone rang once more. Destiny had called again, under the guise of the CBC ComedyCoup Competition. Naturally, they answered. Pulling “Geoff and the Ninja” out from the back of the closet, they dusted it off and placed in the Top 15 projects across Canada. For the next three years, they built on and refined the project, secured funding and distribution through TELUS STORYHIVE, and launched into production on their first season in the fall of 2017. Now complete, the series will emerge from the shadows in November, 2018.
