Who knew that one day, I would actually want to let people watch me act.
Welcome to the home of Overactive Imagination Studios, basically the home of the films of Sean Newton and Sam Burns.
We are a small group of filmmakers, founded by Sam and I, based in North Battleford, Saskatchewan. We’ve been doing this for a few years now; taking the strange little men in our heads, and turning them into thoughts, which very quickly can turn into ideas, and from then on it’s pretty self-explanatory.
Who knew that anyone in Saskatchewan made films.
Well, hopefully, we’d like to offer you some trademark “Canadiana” in our films, ranging from murder mysteries to sketch comedy, and most places in between. If we were to throw simple genre out the window, our films are difficult to describe. They have a mood similar to Coen Brothers films, or Tarantino, or the great Wes Anderson. Hell, maybe even some Woody Allen thrown in for old times sake. They all carry a certain desperation and self-deprecation in their characters, as do we. Our stories are usually about how human beings react under any kind of pressure, eventually pushing themselves to the breaking point, and–
You get the idea. We have a habit of simply despising films like Avatar or 300 or the latest CGI orgy. These aren’t films, people! These movies are “The Suck”!(metaphorically of course)
Well, who knew.
We’re here to hopefully introduce you to something that you’ve never seen before. So, sit back, and enjoy.
