The Little Deputy

Download Press Kit

Trevor tries to have a photo taken with his father.

“It’s the best kind of short film, the kind that does not adhere to any familiar narrative trappings, but still conveys something deeply personal that never once feels like an exercise in self-indulgence.” - Collin Souter, rogerebert.com

The Little Deputy is written and directed by Trevor Anderson; produced by Blake McWilliam; cinematography by Peter Wunstorf, ASC, and aAron munson; production design by Matt Vest; costume design by Nicole Bach-Labrecque, edited by Justin Lachance, sound design by Johnny Blerot, original music by Luke Doucet.

The Little Deputy is produced with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Government of Alberta, Alberta Media Fund, Edmonton Arts Council, TELUS, and the Film and Video Arts Society of Alberta (FAVA).

Here are some behind-the-scenes photo galleries of the production, shot by Fish Griwkowsky:
