Anomaly – A Film By Dan Difelice & Salomon Ligthelm

I recently had the chance to see Dan Difelice & Salomon Ligthelm’s new film, “Anomaly”. I’ve attached the synopsis below.

Celebrity Endorsements: Balancing Crew, Cast and Client Needs in a Corporate World

Earlier this summer, Cinescapes Collective was hired by Tourism Saskatoon to produce a video series featuring some of Saskatoon’s local and international talents as they talk about why they love Saskatoon so much. One of the people we featured in the series was Kim Coates, star of the show, “Son’s of Anarchy”. We felt his was the perfect advocate for the city. For the short film, we wanted to not only talk about why he loves Saskatoon but also find out about his journey as an actor. What we want to do with this post is give you insight into how the project went down and talk about what we learned through the process of working with talent. Our three main topics include:
