Toronto Film News: It's A Wrap for Sci-Fi Thriller 'Debug'

From a media release:

Toronto film news:
PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY HAS WRAPPED ON
DAVID HEWLETT’S SCI-FI THRILLER,
DEBUG

Toronto. Producer Steve Hoban of Copperheart Entertainment announced that principal photography has wrapped on Debug, a film written and directed by actor David Hewlett (Cube, Rise of the Apes, “Stargate Atlantis”,). Debug, Hewlett’s second feature film, stars Jeananne Goossen (The Vow, “Alcatraz”), Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian, Bullet to the Head, “Game of Thrones”), Adam Butcher (Wolves, Mirror, Mirror,), Kjartan Hewitt (Scott Pilgrim vs the World, This Movie is Broken), Sidney Leeder (Goon), Jaydn Wong (Cosmopolis), Adrian Holmes (Elysium, Red Riding Hood) and Kyle Mac (Carrie). Produced by Steven Hoban (Splice, Wolves, Haunter) and executive produced by Mark Smith (Haunter, 388 Arletta Ave.), Jane Loughman (A Dog’s Breakfast, The Trial of Ben Barry) and John Raymonds (Haunter, Trust Me) Debug was filmed at Pinewood Studios in Toronto, with release slated for early 2014.

Deep space. Six young hackers on a grueling work release program attempt to clear out - debug - the computer systems of a massive derelict space freighter. They quickly fall prey to the ship's vengeful artificial intelligence, a program that would kill to be human.  As the fractious team is forced to match wits with this rogue program, they discover that the ship holds a deadly secret, and a fate far worse than death.

David Hewlett says: “My father took me to see Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 for my 10th birthday.  I have been enthralled by Hal, and the possibility of sentient artificial intelligence, ever since. Debug is 2001 from Hal’s perspective.”

Cinematography by Gavin Smith (Wolves, 388 Arletta Avenue), production design by Michelle Lannon (Compulsion), costume design by Patrick Antosh (Wolves, Haunter).

DEBUG is produced with the financial participation of Telefilm Canada and the Ontario Media Development Corporation.

Entertainment One has acquired Canadian rights to the film.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
