Montreal, February 1st, 2021 – Incendo and Screentime New Zealand are pleased to announce that they have commenced principal photography on LOVE KNOTS, starring New Zealand actress Brooke Williams (12 Monkeys; Les Chroniques de Shannara), as well as Matthew Walker (Alone in the Dark; Doomsday Prophecy) and Beth Alexander (Brokenwood; The Cul de Sac). LOVE KNOTS is being shot on location in New Zealand.
LOVE KNOTS is written by John Banas. It is with great excitement that we welcome again the contribution of director Josh Frizzell (Together Forever Tea; Ablaze; Fresh Eggs).
In LOVE KNOTS, Jodie Carpenter is the owner of ‘The Loft’, her family’s sail-making company located near quaint Redmond’s Bay Marina. When luxury developer Charles Prescott purchases the port looking to carry out a lavish expansion, Jodie fears that her business and heritage will be torn down and replaced. Joining forces with her friends and some of the town locals, Jodie fights to save the marina, all while vowing to launch a boat she and her father were refurbishing together before his untimely death. Meeting Will Calvin – the architect who developed the plans for the new marina – Jodie spends her time teaching him about the community and hopes he can harmonize his plans with local culture and traditions to ensure the sustainability of already established businesses. While clashing at first, it is not long before Jodie and Will discover their time together has steered into a friendship that ultimately sets sail for romance.
LOVE KNOTS is produced in association with Citytv, a Rogers Sports & Media channel, to air as part of Citytv’s fan-favourite Fall in Love Fridays lineup. Samantha Ellison, Bridget Bourke and Tina McLaren will produce the film; Executive Producers are Jean Bureau, Ian Whitehead and Philly de Lacey.
