Knightshoot Media Inc is a forward-thinking film production company formed in 2021.

Our home base is Ottawa, Ontario but that in no way defines the scope of our reach. We have affiliates in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver and outside Canada.

Knightshoot’s mission is to tell true stories on film. Currently there are two projects in development, each completely different from the other. One is a never before told true crime story with an in-depth look at the complexity of criminal activities. It explores the lives of the criminals, their victims and their families. The other story deals with the survival of hope, faith and the resilience of the human spirit against the backdrop of the Nazi atrocities of the second World War.

In collaboration with a top-notch team of screenwriters, graphic designers, casting directors, directors and co-producers, Knightshoot brings together the right talent to create a synergy unique to each project.

In this era where there is a voracious appetite for new creative content, KSP is on the lookout for leading edge gripping stories based on real life experiences.
