Cameras set to roll on two new Insight Film Studios Productions

Vancouver, B.C. — British Columbia’s busiest independent production company, Insight Film Studios is set to start lensing two exciting new productions this month. From the story of a murderous monster lurking beneath the waves to a tale of a murderous newlywed arrested on his honeymoon, these are just two of the many large-and small screen productions on Insight’s slate this year.

Loch Ness

This thrilling horror film resurrects the fabled Scottish sea monster that has captured imaginations for centuries. After a near fatal encounter with ‘Nessie’ 30 years earlier, James Murphy believes he has finally tracked the creature across the globe to Lake Superior. His suspicions are confirmed when panicky residents of a sleepy lakeside town discover there’s a bloodthirsty sea creature in their midst. Aided by local Police Sheriff Karen Riley, Murphy must find the lair of this misplaced creature before it kills again. Loch Ness begins filming on October 10.

Written by Jason Bourque and directed by Paul Ziller, Loch Ness stars Brian Krause (Charmed) and Niall Matter (Love My Way). It will air on the Sci-Fi Channel in early 2007. 

Undercover

Newlywed Lisa Crews experiences the shock of her life when her husband is arrested by the FBI on their honeymoon. When he’s convicted of murder and embezzlement, Lisa goes undercover to discover the truth. Frustrated and frightened by her husband’s silence, Lisa’s sleuthing ultimately uncovers a conspiracy that turns on his friend and partner and leads to a vast mob-designed money laundering scam they are desperate to protect.

Directed by George Mendeluk, who co-wrote the script with Insight Film’s Keith Shaw, the movie stars Shawnee Smith (The Island), Michael Woods (Shock to the System), Jane Sowerby (Instant Star) and Robert Moloney (Godiva’s). Undercover, produced by Kirk Shaw and Stan Kamens, begins shooting on October 9. It’s expected to air on Global TV in early 2007.
