First International Feature Film

On August 10, 2012, in Television & Video Production, by Television Faculty

Television & Video Production alumni Ben Hoskyn begins work on his first international feature film:

“As a wealthy businessman nears the end of his life, his three children are faced with the same choice he made – and now regrets. Living in Toronto, Hong Kong, and Vancouver, they each have to decide between devoting their lives to the multinational family business, or breaking away from it in order to live a life their father never could.”

Written and Allan Mackey and directed by Ben Hoskyn, “8 Minutes Ahead” explores themes of greed, materialism, loyalty, ambition, and the moments when all of those elements collide.

Principal photography begins November 2012, on location in Hong Kong, China.
