NEWS & LAURELS
We have had quite a run these last 4 years and we're just getting started. Here are some of our recent laurels & notable projects.
"SEND HELP" - FARIS HYTIAA - COMEDY SPECIAL
We are so excited to have recently released our first ever comedy special for local Just for Laughs comedian, Faris Hytiaa, funded by TELUS STORYHIVE. This 47 minute production is a first of its kind in at least 4 distinct ways. A truly original production that we are honoured to have produced. Read more
1. SEND HELP was a part of the first ever "Black Creators Edition" funded through STORYHIVE. 2. We worked with Faris to develop a completely original format, a compelling concept and an undeniable pitch. 3. We were successful and it was the first ever comedy special funded by STORYHIVE for any producer. 4. Then we produced a hybrid standup/narrative production that was so well delivered TELUS allowed for it's first ever 14A Rating designation on content they've funded, stating they "didn't want to compromise the artistic integrity of the work." It is available on YouTube on the TELUS STORYHIVE channel. You can also find it on TELUS Optik VOD. An extended audio cut of the special is out now on SPOTIFY and people are taking notice. My Lethbridge Now put out a great article in which Faris discusses censorship and creative freedom, showing gratitude for TELUS's flexibility and understanding. Here's a link to the article:

Javier Escuela, Musician
Super solid production. Easy to work with. Even easier to negotiate with. The work Nick did for my music video was absolutely phenomenal and my best release yet. Thanks Nick and I highly recommend HatChaps for any and all production needs.
Daniel J. Perryman, Actor
Nick Bohle facilitated a very warm and welcoming energy that eased me into the process of becoming a more confident and knowledgable TV/Film Actor alongside my peers, as well as prospective agents, within this budding industry of Alberta. I look forward to the next one!
The workshop ran by Nick Bohle, in Lethbridge, was a great opportunity! I got all my questions about the industry answered and got more advice and tips than I thought I would! It both built my confidence and gave me some much needed information. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend anyone trying to pursue acting as a career, to take it.
