Lights. Camera. Cancelled.

Hi there!

We are Kathryn Wiltshire and Madison Hurrell - two professional dancers from Toronto!
We, along with many others have unfortunately been out of work for 14 months due to the pandemic.

During this difficult time, we decided to fuel our creativity by forming our own production company, Bright Fire Media. This was a stepping stone for us to produce a documentary entitled, "Lights. Camera. Cancelled."
This short film focuses on the struggles that the arts and entertainment industry as a whole has faced during this time.
