HOPE the Film


Next week on June 9-11 Doug Tarry Homes and our team of trades, suppliers and volunteers will undertake our epic three day build HOPE. However, there is another project we are undertaking at the same time. Doug Tarry Homes has partnered with Eclipse Media Productions and director Aaron Huggett, who just finished filming the Black Donnellys, to tell the story of HOPE. It is about the build, but it is much more than that. There is a story here and we want you to help tell it. Our film is also about remembering Johnny Nooren and creating a lasting memory for his children Luke and Aleida.

We are already well underway with filming; having shot many scenes of the lead up to the build, including meetings, the kick off and most recently several scenes with the help of Great Northern Insulation and Chris Miller who was our Director of Photography for this shoot and a real pro. (“Great Northern: Soil Gas Barrier”, “Johnny Becomes a Building Inspector”, “One in a Million” and “Paying it forward”). A special thanks to Jamie Yolkowskie for being such a good sport and giving of his time on a Saturday, on his 24th wedding anniversary.

This weekend we begin principal filming for HOPE and Aaron has informed me that he has brought together the ‘A TEAM’ for the Principal filming and we are thrilled to be working with so many St. Thomas based business as locations and scenes for our film. I will send a film schedule in a follow up email.
