Filmmakers seek local backing for campy comedy

Summer camp used to be about arts, crafts, and songs around the fire, but when forced to go co-ed, it turns into a battle of the sexes. That’s the plot of “Boys vs. Girls,” a film under development by UWindsor alumni Mike Stasko and Theordore Bezaire, 2002 grads of the communications program.

Their Dot Film Company is about to begin production on this, their fifth feature. They plan to shoot in June and are seeking local support through an Indiegogo campaign with a goal of raising $60,000.

The company’s previous project, The Birder, used locations in Ojibway and Point Pelee parks, employing a cast and crew of more than 200 Windsorites, says Stasko, who also teaches in the Department of Communications, Media, and Film.

“Windsor is a fantastic city in the midst of diversifying its local economy and industries,” he says. “Our film will give the opportunity to many University of Windsor students to work this summer on a real film set.”
