Keyframe Digital Grows “Three Inches,� “Degrassi� and “X111�

Niagara-On-The-Lake, ON— Digital animation and visual effects studio Keyframe Digital Productions has begun producing all digital visual effects for the SyFy pilot “Three Inches.� The screenplay for the 90-minute project was written by Harley Peyton (“Twin Peaks) and is directed by Jace Alexander (“Royal Pains�). Bob Cooper and Peyton are Executive Producers. Fox TV Studios and Landscape Entertainment are producing.
James Marsters (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer�) portrays the leader of a covert team of less than impressive “superheroes.� The three inches refers to the ability of the lead character, new recruit “Walter� (Noah Reid), to move an object with his mind—provided that it’s three inches or less. Together, the unlikely band of heroes proves that “super� is simply a state of mind.
Andrea Martin (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” “SCTVâ€?) has joined the cast as Belinda Spackman, the main character’s mother. She’s a brutally cynical force of nature who will do anything to protect her son, who has developed the unique not-so-superpower.
For the CBC, Keyframe is providing visual effects for the tenth season of “Degrassi,� a Canadian teen drama television series set in the Degrassi universe, which was created by Linda Schuyler and Kit Hood. “Degrassi� is the fourth fictional series in the “Degrassi� franchise, and follows “The Kids of Degrassi Street,� “Degrassi Junior High,� and “Degrassi High.�
“We were asked to come aboard once the producers decided to employ the Red Camera system,� said Clint Green, Visual Effects Supervisor. “The Red Camera gave the show a whole new look. The clean, crisp and vibrant images shot by our director of photography, Alwyn Kumst, have expanded the show’s visual quality that in turn triggered discussions about how to expand the Degrassi world. This new point of view allowed Keyframe to extend various street angles and, with the use of green screen and other city plates for backgrounds, we were able to create brand new locations.�
Keyframe is also attached to 13 one-hour episodes of the thriller “X111,� now shooting in Toronto. The drama, top-lined by Stuart Townsend as X111, a former secret agent struggling to discover his true identity and the governmental conspiracy surrounding him, will see Aisha Tyler (“24�) play a top CIA operator and Virginie Ledoyen, a mercenary hired by a former U.S. President to track X111.
Prodigy Pictures is co-producing “X111,� which is set in France, with French partner Cipango. Canal Plus has picked up the hour-long drama for the French TV market, and Showcase will air the series in Canada.
Jay Firestone, head of Prodigy, is executive producing “X111� along with Cipango’s Edouard De Vesinne and Thomas Anargyros. Show runner Gil Grant is executive producer. Wanda Chaffey is producing the Canadian-French production.
Keyframe recently completed all visual effects for the second season of “Warehouse 13�and is currently completing 13 one-hour episodes of the new fantasy-noir series, “Lost Girl.�
