Documentary: ‘Driven by Comedy’

A 60-minute documentary about the Ottawa stand-up comedy scene.

Driven by Comedy (working title) follows a group of three comedians in Ottawa in separate, interweaving profiles. The documentary follows their artistic process and their universally-relatable desire to dream and create.

This 60-minute documentary will be shot in a single-camera, cinéma vérité style, with the camera capturing fly-on-the-wall moments from specific scenes. These scenes will be interspersed with longer interviews from each comic. All will be filmed off-the-shoulder.

Winner: 2018 SAW Video Production Fund
