Filming is underway in Winnipeg on a documentary about Canadian musician Randy Bachman, produced by Winnipeg’s Farpoint Films and Toronto’s Paquin Entertainment Group.
The feature-length project, titled Bachman, examines the Canadian Music Hall of Famer’s global impact on pop music, since his emergence in the mid 1960s as a founding member of The Guess Who.
Directed by Farpoint co-founder John Barnard, the doc is licensed to CBC’s documentary channel.
Earlier this month it was announced that Farpoint had inked a deal with Rooftop Content Group that sees the Amsterdam-based sales agent repping Farpoint’s feature film Menorca internationally. The Winnipeg-based production company also has a first-look production deal with L.A.-based producer and distributor Rive Gauche Television, which the pair inked in June 2016.
