For over 13 years Overtime Studios has been telling the stories of the people of Southwest Saskatchewan through its award winning media outlet Southwest TV News. With over 1,400 episodes produced, the world has been introduced to the people and historical events of this region.
 
Throughout our travels, we’ve had the privilege of meeting a variety of interesting individuals; from politicians to athletes, artists to entrepreneurs, everyone has a story to tell.

During the last several years, we've also produced documentaries that tell very personal stories. This includes documentaries that are creating a positive outcome through the archiving of history for future generations as seen in our 9 part series, “Stories of the Great Southwest” and our documentaries tackling social issues such as “Matt’s Story” which has been used as a training tool within the local health region. Creating documentaries which are not only educational and entertaining but helping to make a difference in people’s lives.

In one of our favorite examples include stories that focus on ordinary people who through their actions impact their local communities in very special ways.

Stayin Alive Choir - A senior's choir that has inspired many by showing what's possible after 55.
Behind The Lights - From coaches to players to the volunteers , this is a story about high school football and how everyone comes together during a very special game each year.
Socially relevant documentaries are another topic we enjoy producing, especially when it helps affect change. For the last 3 years we've been fortunate to work with the United Way in Swift Current, Saskatchewan on their Gala of Hope Fundraiser. We've taken on very emotionally charged topics including Mental Illness, Domestic Violence and Substance Abuse, creating documentaries that tell the story through the people that lived it.

United Way - Matt's Story



The last area we specialize in, is Historical Documentaries. These personal stories reflect the oral history of an individual while at the same time telling a larger community story.  Past topics have included the creation of one of the most iconic parks in Western Canada- The Cypress Hills Inter-Provincial Park. As well, another favorite is the story of the birth of hockey in small town Saskatchewan through The History of Hockey in Swift Current.

Moving forward as Overtime Studios, It's these 3 types of Documentaries that we would like to focus on and produce. It's important to know that these documentaries were created in a collaborative environment with a dedicated team of professionals committed to telling the best story possible. We've been fortunate that a number of these projects were produced using standard budgets accepted in low budget documentary film making. Anywhere from $5,000 to $15,000. It's our hope to continue this tradition as we ask for your support in helping to achieve our financial goal.

We would like your support in helping to create 6 documentaries over the course of the next 12 months.

We would like to focus on producing these 3 types of documentaries

  • Stories that showcase ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
  • Stories that explore social or social justice issues.
  • Stories that focus on the oral history of community and the people that contributed to it.

Goals
$116 of $10,000 per month
Will give us the financial resources to create 6 new mini documentaries this year. Why six?... Because we have 6 human stories lined up that we feel very strongly about that really need to be told as they are very relevant and current issues.
