the inspiration to start up a production company came from a love of working on projects with, and among, community. the company is committed to collaborating with and meaningfully incorporating youth into each production. however, this initiative is not exclusive to documentary film making; youth are welcome to work on a variety of multi-media and digital storytelling projects, with the support and partnership of bear temple productions. the intention is to provide youth with access to platforms for creative expression and to foster the next generation of media artists in saskatchewan.
pprpln productions is rooted in the realms of social and environmental justice, connecting people through those stories is the heart our work.
