Blue Roof Productions
Blue Roof Productions creates and tells stories on film as well as in unconventional theatre spaces, with a strong visual esthetic, often multi-disciplinary in nature and always full of heart.
Two radically different women spend all day together but rarely connect, until they ultimately change the course of each others’ lives.

Orchid is a short film written by Anna Hardwick, directed by first time director Molly Flood, and produced by Emily Andrews, Jen Pogue, Yasmin Ali and Laura Nordin. This almost all-female filmmaking team were the winners of TAWC’s Toolkit 4.0 – Toronto ACTRA Women’s Committee‘s initiative to develop women actors’ transitions into leadership roles in the film industry. We benefited from three amazing mentors (writing, directing and producing) and some seed money to kick the project into gear.

Meet the Orchid Team:
In June 2013, 25 people came together for three days to shoot a 12 minute short film called Baby Brain.
While trying to decide how to handle a surprise pregnancy, Isabel sets out to silence the pesky voices in her head, who’ve suddenly come to life in human form. Baby Brain is a frank, fanciful and funny look at a woman making the decision of her life, under less than ideal circumstances.
Starring Jonathan Gould, Anna Hardwick, Andre Sills and Jennifer Waiser, with Katie Lawson, Monica Nowak and Derek Moran.
Written by Anna Hardwick, Directed by Mars Horodyski (Ben’s At Home).
Executive Produced by Anna Hardwick, Produced Nicole Bergot and Priya Rao with Farah Merani as Associate Producer.

Baby Brain had its World Premiere at the Toronto International Short Film Festival on November 12, 2014! Our US Premiere was on May 28th, 2015, at New York Shorts Fest and received a wonderful response. It won a Remi Award at Worldfest Houston and it continues to make the journey to film festivals around the world.
