It almost always starts small




An idea, an itch, a catalyst; that thought that gets stuck in your brain and won’t shake free until you’ve brought it to life. We are out there searching, looking to uncover new stories that have not yet been told.

About

  

The Stories We Love
We produce feature film. We develop cool stories. We stay up past our bedtime.

What are we looking for? Well it’s pretty broad. Could be a clever drama, or bloody horror, or a dark comedy. The only glue we look for at Lithium is strong characters and new stories..
If your idea is recycled nonsense the recycle bin is to the left. We work in Canada, the US, Europe… where you at?


Mike Macmillan – Producer

Founder of Lithium Studios Productions
University of Toronto (‘02)
UCLA’s Professional Producing Program (‘11)


His first feature, the dark comedy / thriller I Put a Hit on You (2014, Telefilm Canada supported), premiered at this year’s Slamdance Film Festival in Park City. Guidance (2014, Telefilm Canada supported, with super producer Alyson Richards over at Edyson), a dark comedy/coming of age story is currently in post-production, expected to join the festival circuit in September 2014.

Mike has produced a dozen short films with Toronto talents Dane Clark and Linsey Stewart (CAN – Long Branch, Margo Lily), Samuel Fluckiger (SWISS – Terminal, Nightlight) and Darragh McDonald (CAN – Love. Marriage. Miscarriage.). They’ve played at the top film fests around the world and won a bunch of awards.

Special skills include kickass hat collection and whiskey. Bam.
