|In the fourth year of this series, expect me to interview filmmakers and photograph film and TV productions — Fifty Shades of Grey, Age of Adaline, Once Upon a Time, Arrow, Supernatural, Bates Motel and our own Continuum and Motive — which showcase our city and sometimes put a celebrity actor or two in the frame.

Vancouver filmmakers Clif Prowse and Derek Lee developed their feature film debut Afflicted as a web series where they would play themselves on a worldwide year-long backpacking adventure told through a video travel blog and use all their real social media accounts to facilitate a “real-people-in-a-real-situation” docu-style drama. Afflicted starts off as a European version of One Week with Joshua Jackson except Derek’s life-threatening condition is AVM not cancer and he’s not alone on his trip.
A Derek stunt double jumps off a 30 to 40 foot ledge in a three-part shot stitched together afterward. Pretty impressive.
Afflicted is playing at the International Village and several other theatres in the Lower Mainland.
