Here are some of the questions that we get asked all the time. We’ll update this periodically, so if you have a question, contact us and we’ll do our best to answer it.
How do you go about finding locations in which to film? I like making films but I find that I have to restrict myself to my friends’ apartments.
Never underestimate the power of the grapevine. We tapped our friends, our family members and our friends’ family members to see if we could film in their workplaces and were rewarded with a bakery, a scrubs warehouse, a church and a high school. Don’t be afraid to contact places where you want to film. For example, we needed a restaurant so we emailed Big Mamma’s Boy and, not only did they allow us to film there, they hosted our fundraiser too. In our experience, it’s usually easier to get a more positive response from independent venues as opposed to places attached to huge corporations (lots more people to go through for clearance).
Is Lindy’s characterinspired by Laura Holt, of Remington Steele by any chance?
Yes, and by a plethora of other characters including David Caruso’s character in CSI: Miami, and other shows such as Laverne and Shirley and Murder, She Wrote.
Where is Dana’s accent from?
Dana is from Newfoundland.
How did you get Dana’s flippy bangs in Season 1?
Flat irons, hairspray, crossed fingers, and the talent that is our hair/make-up artist, Rikki Zucker.
Will Jill Bennett (or anyone else from the afterellen.com crew) be making an appearance?
If Jill Bennett, or anyone else from the AE crew, would like to make an appearance in a future episode of Fletcher, and would fly out to Toronto on their own dime, I’m sure we could work something out!
Are you planning to release a DVD?
Yes, we are. At some stage. We just need to get through making this Season first!
How do I get a Fletcher t-shirt?
You can purchase all of our Fletcher merchandise from our Zazzle store.
Can I intern/volunteer on your show/production company?
We’re wrapped production on Season 3. However, we’re always keen to work with new talent, whether it’s on this show or a future production, so if you’re in Toronto, you can forward your CV/resume to Bee Charmer Productions. Or if you’re in London (UK, not Ontario!) you can forward your CV/resume to directly to our producer, Rochelle Dancel.
