Talent to Watch-supported Events Transpiring Before, During, and After a High School Basketball Game from writer/director Ted Stenson is set to wrap in Calgary today (Aug. 19).

Produced by Calgary’s Kino Sum Productions, the ’90s comedy stars Andrew Phung from Kim’s Convenience and follows a high school boys basketball team as “several unusual dramas take shape around its periphery.” Production on the feature film from the writer/director, whose credits include shorts like Pregnant Jack and A Short Film About Perverts, officially started last month.

Executive producers on the $250,000 project include Calgary Underground Film Festival’s Brenda Lieberman and Kino Sum co-founder Gillian McKercher. Kevin Dong and Kino Sum’s Nicola Waugh serve as producers.

A part of Telefilm Canada’s 2018 Talent to Watch cohort, the deadpan comedy was the only project selected to represent Alberta. Events Transpiring Before, During, and After a High School Basketball Game also received support from the Alberta Media Fund and is set to be released in 2020. The feature does not currently have a distributor attached.

In addition to Phung, the film stars Jay Morberg, Reamonn Joshee, Paul Cowling, Kim Faires, Isra Abdelrahim, Ivy Miller and Benjamin Arthurs.
