The Real Superhuman And The Quest For The Future FantasticNews

The Real Superhumans is a groundbreaking feature length documentary that reveals the amazing stories of real people with extraordinary super powers. Who are these “super humans”? In Switzerland, a young woman who combines senses so she can taste and see music; In Turkey, a painter who is compared with Renaissance Master Brunelleschi – despite being born without eyes. In the Netherlands, a man with an unexplained power to withstand extreme cold.

Writ large like a comic book, The Real Superhumans delves into each of these amazing characters’ stories. Each one give us a glimpse into what we may all be like in the future – the very near future. There are those who say that the human species will be radically different not in thousands of years or even hundreds – but in our lifetime! The Real Superhumans talks to the world’s leading geneticists, biologists, futurists, inventors and evolutionary scientists about the importance of this moment in history and how the decisions we make right now will affect our future forever.

The documentary was showcased at the World Congress of Science Producers in New York in November 2008, and won the ‘Best Canadian Programme Award’ at Banff that same year.

Secret Life Of…

March 09, 2015

Secret Life Of...is a cheeky and provocative  biography series that deliciously dishes dirt on icons of the past. Think Napoleon, Catherine the Great, and Casanova. Then take the visual appeal of Entertainment Tonight, throw in a little Monty Python humour, and subject it all to rigorous historical accuracy. The result? A rare glimpse into the world of the rich, famous and scandalous. Did Henry VIII really please all those wives? Did Napoleon come up short in more ways than one? And how did Marie Antoinette navigate her way to the bathroom?

In addition to the stress of competition on the auction circuit, the buyers face a lot of major decisions with new business ventures on the horizon. Coming together with different levels of experience and knowledge, these buyers only have one thing in common: they will do anything to get what they want, and what they want is to find the next big deal.
