Production has begun in Quebec on Alice in the Attic, the first feature directed and produced by Jordan Greer.

The film, produced by Montreal-based Blackboard Pictures, tells the story of a young man who spends his summer vacation at his estranged aunt’s secluded country home, and discovers she has imprisoned her daughter under suspicion of a dangerous mental illness.

Alice in the Attic, which started production Sept. 2 in Morin Heights, Quebec, will shoot through to Sept. 25.

Greer, who also wrote the script for Alice in the Attic, tells Playback the film will have a fast post-production schedule, with the goal of having it finished at the beginning of 2014 to hit the festival circuit and seek distribution.  He adds if the film doesn’t find a home with the right distributor, the team will pursue a self-distribution model it has been exploring.

The privately funded Alice in the Attic stars Levi Meaden, Anie Robitaille, Eliane Prefontaine, Sabrina Campilii and Karine Dashney.

Blackboard’s Kacim Steets  is DOP and producer and Veronique Lamontagne is production designer.
