The results are in from the May 1 round of applicants for the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund. Among those that made the cut is season two of Ice Pilots NWT from Propheads II Productions. The 13 x 60-minute docu-series is for History Television, though Propheads also received funding for a browser-based mobile version of Icepilots.com for iPhone.

Toronto-based interactive company Secret Location also landed funds for two projects, including My Babysitter’s a Vampire from MBV Productions for Teletoon and Storming Juno for History. Working with Storming Juno Productions/E1 Entertainment, Secret Location will merge a short film into a 3D ‘dome’ of Juno beach, featuring hotspots that will let users watch or listen to first-person veteran accounts from Normandy.
