ALBERTA-SHOT SERIES AIRS ON AMAZON PRIME
Alberta-based production company Numera Films recently acquired a distribution deal with the Washington based company Zombie Orpheus Entertainment for their flagship series Abracadavers.
Producers Morgan Ermter, Griffin Cork, Gianna Isabella and Josef Wright went into production in
the summer of 2018 with the support of The Calgary Film Centre’s Project Lab, and Telus’ STORYHIVE
“Abracadavers was our largest undertaking as filmmakers and as a company,” says Cork “and we could not be happier with it’s journey.” – Coming January 1st, 2020, after over 20 festivals worldwide (including the prestigious Raindance Film Festival in London and FilmQuest, one of the largest genre fests in the world), Abracadavers will be available on Amazon Prime, iTunes and The Fantasy Network in the United States, U.K, Japan, and Germany.
Abracadavers follows the story of Chris, who’s Mom died in a freak hair salon chair accident.
Ever since then, he’s been attached to the chair responsible for her death. Gabriel, his closest friend,
believes this is more than an obsession and along with their group of friends kidnaps him on a trip.
On the road-trip everyone discovers, as Chris had previously begun to expect, that the salon chair
gives those close to it superpowers.
Chris, on the other hand, comes to understand he’s in fact struggling with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and learns, along with his friends, that dealing with super-human abilities is something easier to grapple with than what’s going on in your mind. The group trips, stumbles, but ultimately works and grows together to understand their new-found abilities and more importantly, themselves.
Abracadavers spent six weeks filming all over Alberta from the film-centric Calgary, to the gorgeous
vistas of Sylvan Lake and Drumheller.
The Numera team is proud to boast an entirely Albertan cast and crew, and it was important to director Ermter that the beautiful landscapes of Alberta were showcased. Cork, Wright, Isabella and Ermter attribute the success of their series to the support of the Alberta film scene and the guidance of STORYHIVE, Telus, The Calgary Film Centre and The National Screen Institute of Canada. The series stars Griffin Cork (Heartland, The Black Donnellys, Everfall), Emma Houghton (The PsyBorgs), Samantha Jeffery (The Magicians, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before 3) and Reamonn Joshee (Wynonna Earp, True Fiction, Jonesin).
Abracadavers will also be available on The Fantasy Network and iTunes in Canada, and will continue to be available on Telus’ Optik TV.
Abracadavers has received over 35 award wins and nominations, including “Best Web Series” at the
Los Angeles Film Awards, the AMPIA Rosie Awards, the New Vision International Film Festival, the
Global Film Festival Awards and CSIF’s first inaugural Stinger Awards.
Ermter picked up several Best Director wins and nominations, and composer Scott Steneker also took home a Best Original Music Score award at the AMPIA Rosies, among others.
