We are a vibrant Canadian production company with a passion for creating quality programming for national and international audiences on all platforms. With over 20 years experience, GAPC Entertainment’s talented team creates stories with power, creativity and reach, producing original and compelling content across many genres, including award-winning drama, children’s programs, performing arts, biopics, science and history. We have produced web-series, broadcast specials and episodic series, documentaries, docu-drama’s and interactive on-line content and developed and produced digital applications for tablets, android and OS operating systems. We’ve even published a bestselling tabletop book!
GAPC Entertainment’s latest series, Es-tu prêt? just launched this spring. Building off the same themes as it’s English predecessor Are You Ready?, Es-tu prêt? brings 40 more fun and enthusiatic episodes of kids accomplishing everyday firsts to a French audience through TFO, providing more international and format sales opportunities. As well, building off the success of the MathXplosion brand, GAPC has ScienceXplosion in distribution internationally, making vigorous sales.
Currently in production we have a pre-school numeracy series for TVO, Polkaroo Counts!, which our distributors tell us will do very well because of its short snackable length and lovable universally appealing mascot. We have also started filming on a new pre-school literary series called O c’est pour Ottawa. 26 x 1:30 minute episodes, this adorable short form series showcases how incredible our nation’s capital is while taking a deep dive into the alphabet. O c’est pour Ottawa, is being produced for French-language broadcaster TFO.
All of these productions require digital content and marketing support through social media and on-line services and with some 3 new series in production as well as a feature length documentary GAPC Entertainment requires a Digital Media Coordinator who can develop their technical, production and marketing skills to help transform our television content into trans media content that can support our aggressive digital media plan ensuring discoverability of past and future products.
