Screen Siren Pictures Inc : Screen Siren Pictures Inc. is a Vancouver-based production company incorporated in November 1997 by its president Trish Dolman. Dolman's vision was to create socially relevant, high quality, innovative documentaries, and dramatic film and television. Originally housed in an office in Yaletown, the company's first production was a season of Beetlemania, a weekly column about insects that aired nationally on "@discovery.ca", Discovery's daily news show. The first documentary that Screen Siren undertook was award-winning director David Vaisbord's Britannia Beach, the story of a mining town and its legacy of environmental devastation, produced with the participation of CTV, TVO, Knowledge and SCN. In the spring of 1998, Ice Girls, a feature length documentary chronicling the lives of three elite young figure skaters, premiered at the Banff Television Festival. Since then, the company has produced projects with the participation of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), CTV, BC Film and Telefilm. Also in 1998, the company started working on its first feature Flower & Garnet, a multiple award winning film about eight-year old Garnet raised by his 16-year old sister after their mother died giving birth to him. Screen Siren went into principal photography on Britannia in April of 1999. In October 1999, Ice Girls went into principal photography as an official BBC Canada-UK treaty co-production, and was completed in 2001. In 2000, Leah Mallen and Stephanie Symns joined the company in a variety of roles, which led to both of them becoming producers with Screen Sirens pictures in 2002. Stephanie Symns and Trish Dolman together began producing Drawing Out the Demons, a documentary about the life and work of controversial painter Attila Richard Lukacs, which went into production in 2002. In 2004, the company engaged in development financing for several feature films, documentary one-offs and a limited documentary series. In March 2004, Screen Siren went into production on Girl Racers, a four-part documentary mini-series, and in November of the same year, the company started production on its first television drama, The Score for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (broadcast in 2005). In 2005, Breaking Ranks, directed by Michelle Mason, and Hammer & Tickle, a France/Canada co-production, were green-lit for production and shot over the course of several months. In addition to the development of several feature films, Trish Dolman also developed the CTV Television Movie Luna: Spirit of the Whale, which went into production in 2006 for CTV and Peace Arch Entertainment and was delivered in 2007. In 2006, the company also completed Breaking Ranks, a documentary for Global, SCN and Knowledge. The company has also completed Reservation Soldiers, a one-hour documentary for CTV, on the relationship between the Canadian military and aboriginal youth. Screen Siren's other productions include documentaries such as Exit Kingsway, Hammer and Tickle, and short films such as The Space Between, and White Cloud Blue Mountain. The company has produced for broadcasters such as AETN, ARTE, BBC, CBC, CTV, Global Television, Bravo!, Corus, Movie Central, TMN, TVO, W, the Discovery Channel, the Biography Channel (US), Vision TV, Knowledge Network and SCN and has partnered with distributors such as the NFB, Fireworks International, Moving Images, Odeon Films, Alliance Atlantis and Peace Arch Entertainment. Screen Siren's productions have been honoured at numerous international festivals and received awards and nominations from: The Leo Awards, The Banff Television Festival, The Genies and The Gemini Awards. Today, Screen Siren Pictures Inc. aspires to become a leader in the production of Canadian film and television, developing a broad slate of television drama, feature films and documentaries, and focusing on international co-productions and partnerships.
