September 28 is just a month away and we’re busy here at Real to Reel headquarters promoting the film.

Before the film airs (Global TV, September 28, 9 pm) we’ll be featuring posts by our cast: their experience in the making of the film, the highs and lows of object-sexuality; and FAQs on OS.

We’ve asked the cast to write reflections on their experience in the making of these films. Each entry is filled with inspiration, we are honoured to share these stories with you. This week (August 19 – 23, 2013) we feature Linda, an accomplished corporate pilot living in Florida (USA). She has finally married Bruce (a carnival ride), the love of her life and likes nothing better than eating pizza and watching football on TV with him. Read her story HERE

Animism: People Who Love Objects is NATPE Budapest 2013 Hot Pick

Screen Shot 2013-07-19 at 5.58.10 PM(July 2013) Television Bureau International (TBI) features Real to Reel Productions Inc’s Animism: People Who Love Objects, as NATPE Budapest 2013 Hot Pick. 

Article excerpt (posted with permission)

Broadcasters on the look out for unusual documentaries for their dedicated strands should look no further that this Canadian 1x60mins/1x90mins programme. according to Nicky Davies Williams, CEO of its distributor, DCD Rights.

The doc follows five seemingly normal people who are sexually and mentally attracted to inanimate objects _ a condition known as Objectum-Sexuality. Among the subjects is a woman who was ‘married’ to the Eiffel Tower but is now ‘with’ the Berlin Wall, a British woman in love [with] the Statue of Liberty, and a [wo]man in love with a ferris wheel.

“This is just about the most comprehensive film on Objectum-Sexuality,” says Davies Williams. “What’s extraordinary is the articulate, high achieving kind of people they are. It’s essentially a humanist story, and about people on the edge of normality, which is where people are most interesting.” DCD Rights, the sales arm of UK-based production group DCD Media, will be seeking to place the doc with Latin American buyers at the market, and also expects it to do well in Scandinavia. A deal with an unnamed US channel is close to finalisation.

Animism: People Who Love Objects will air on Global/Shaw on September 28, 2013, at 8pm (EST).
