“Down to earth conversations with international Canadian stars” was the idea behind the series Close-Up featuring host Neil Grahn. This pilot episode was created to try to sell the project to potential broadcasters. We shot on location in Los Angeles around the venice beach area with Alberta born actor Nathan Fillion! Since then he’s starred in lead roles in Firefly, Castle, and Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog. It was fun to be involved and watch the growth of a home-grown star!
