Congrats to Polly and her cast and crew for their hard work and efforts paying off!

"Wytch Craft" is a 16 minute supernatural dark comedy short film about a fed up and angsty Millennial, who resorts to witch craft in an attempt to rid the earth of her annoying perfect co-worker, however what can go wrong, will go wrong!

"Wytch Craft" start Jennifer Pielak (Harry and Meghan: Becoming Royal), Hannah Levien (Sirens), Jocelyn Tam (Rocking on Air), Paula Spurr (Hit the Road) and Megan Leitch (The X Files).  The cinematography was by the Leo Award nominated Stirling Bancroft CSC (Freaks) and is produced by Laura Geluch, Adrian Neblett and myself.

Production was completed during the 2019/2020 Winter in Vancouver and North Vancouver, Canada.

I'm really looking forward to sharing with everyone as our team's effort, creativity and enthusiasm for this production was amazing and has truly contributed to a great product!

Post Production was completed late Summer 2020.

I'm also happy to announce that LA based evil-swing band, Marquis and the Rhythm Howlers, came on board with their deliciously moody music. Please support ehm by going to their website and checking out their latest album, the devilish Post Apocalyptic Jukebox -
