Famed executive producer, Christopher Greaves and creative powerhouse, Jessica Wright were introduced to the owners of the Toronto based acting school and soon an artistic bond was forged. The first project, Popcorn, has been receiving a lot of buzz only a few weeks after releasing the initial teaser.
