We officially launched our first video on September 21, 2017. The film is a short story on Summerland business - Prairie Valley Lodge – a lovely local assisted-living facility which was shot with Okanagan actor Jamie Eberle of Many Hats Theatre Co. and L.A. TV actor Roark Critchlow (Dr Mike Horton on Days of our Lives, Tom Marin on Pretty Little Liars, Starbuck's dad on Battlestar Galactica etc). The two light up the screen as a feisty father and his beleaguered son and their antics in this short story about placing an aging parent in a senior care facility, bring a new and refreshing light to this somewhat difficult topic.
Some of our Facebook readers comments on the video, which reached 1000 views in the first month:

Just came across the short film on Prairie Valley Lodge. Very nice! I laughed at how the older gentleman responded to some of the questions his son asked of him. Reminded me of my Dad :) It was a great film.
