Happy New Year from Brian Taylor and En Queue Film!
2016 was a breakthrough year for EQF, in that we did very little, yet still generated revenue, traffic and interest in both our films and our all-volunteer film production company. We also, finally, released Battle at Beaver Creek for free on all platforms.
In 2017 our focus will be on completing Beneath the Painted Surface our documentary about the life and art of Destanne Norris. It probably won't be released this year, but it will be completed.
Mr. Taylor also has plans to be involved in some other people's projects this year, in addition to continuing to seek investors and funding for the EQF business unit. There is some exciting news in this area, but it can't be divulged until actualized.
It may seem like there's not a lot going on at EQF these days, but that's just because it's all behind the scenes.
We have two films nearing completion. Actually, one is complete.
Our joint production with One Inch Punch Productions Oswald & Tate is slated for a November release. Brian Taylor co-produced, edited and stars alongside Gavin Opp (The Dream is Ready.)
We all look forward to showing this short to the world!
It was written and directed by Randy Kirk.
Brian's documentary Destanne Norris - Beneath the Painted Surface is shaping up nicely. It looks like it's going to be 45 minutes, but might end up 60. It is hoped that it will be ready by November as well, but we're still filming because interesting things continue to happen.
Last Human Being, Real Country Dark and the Smell of Sun on Skin are still on the table, basically waiting for an influx of money to move forward. It is still our desire to make these three features, but we're not opposed to selling the scripts.
In the meantime Brian continues to write and seek out film projects that EQF can produce for little or no money. Other projects, including all the secret ones, continue to fester in Brian's computer. Perhaps by spring one of them will escape. We will have to wait and see.
Oh, I just about forgot!
On December 21 2016, Battle at Beaver Creek will be released, for free streaming and or download, everywhere. I may also release the film with the director's commentary on youtube. (I have to listen to it again, make sure it's not stupid.) Everyone is looking forward to this...
Best thoughts, Everyone.
May 2017 be a better year than 2016 seemed to be...
En Queue Film and Brian C. Taylor are proud to announce the release of a trailer for our upcoming documentary Destanne Norris - Beneath the Painted Surface.
Norris paints scenery that reflects not only the beauty of landscapes, but the lives of those living there Sometimes it's as if the paintings express thoughts of their own Knowing things the artist doesn't, but will come to learn later. Norris doesn't lay claim to any supernatural gift Nor does she deny it.
For now the paintings will tell the story...
En Queue Film Presents A film by Brian C. Taylor Destanne Norris - Beneath the Painted Surface Coming Soon.
Here is a little update for a fresh new year. Happy New Years!
We had a pretty great year in 2015. We released our teaser short film for Last Human Being The Dream is Ready which won 2nd Place Film and Best Cinematography for Kora Vanderlip at Horrorfest 2015, hosted by the Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmakers.
Last Human Being remains in pre-production, about to commence fundraising phase.
We also released a short clip of artist Destanne Norris painting a nature scene at the Allan Brooks Nature Centre in Vernon. This clip is part of an ongoing documentary about Destanne.
IN 2016: We plan to....
-Continue pre-production for Last Human Being, our feature sci-fi/thriller
-Continue production of "Untitled Destanne Norris Documentary"
-Continue production of "Secret films Brian didn't tell anybody about"
-Continue to shop feature scripts
-Help produce other people's projects.

We will post our progress right here, as usual.
