Michael’s full feature, directorial debut is now available to download across North America! You can download it on iTunes HERE

Also, Michael Seater and Ashley Leggat talked with MTV about People Hold On.

Seven years after Life with Derek ended, Derek (Michael Seater) and Casey (Ashley Leggat) reunited to make a film about growing up and accepting that the people you used to be aren’t necessarily who you are now.

People Hold On is Seater’s feature-film directorial debut, and stars his former TV step-sister, as well as a gaggle of former child actors from his past. “Half the cast was on Radio Free Roscoe [when they were kids],” Seater told MTV News. The cast also includes several Strange Days at Blake Holsey High, Degrassi, and The Zack Files actors who’ve all worked together over the years — which explains why filming this movie was such a personal experience for everyone involved.

The perks from the Sadie’s Last Days on Earth indiegogo campaign have started to roll out. If you were someone who helped contribute, you were recently e-mail a “Guide to Survive the Apocalypse” PDF. This PDF not only provides survival tips, but promotional stills and official behind the scenes images.

I have added the behind the scenes images Michael was in to the gallery. You can check them out below:

Since our last post, some more of the cast have been unveiled. On Twitter last week, Helene Joy (Julia Ogden from Murdoch Mysteries) posted pictures of herself, saying:

“Rocking the onesie and more on set of awesome script/cast/crew! congrats

Peter Keleghan (Ben Bellow from 18 to Life) posted a picture with Helene on set too. Apparently they are playing parents – most likely of the title character, Sadie.

Also this week, Mike and Paula both posted pictures of Strombo (George Stroumboulopoulos) being on-set. Strombo is set to play a character named “Gord”.

Michael Seater talked about his first directorial featured film, while Etalk spoke with Paula Brancati (writer, producer, actor) and Ashley Leggat (actor) about the film. They also showed a brief behind-the-scenes look at the post-production.

Mike on Set of Sadie's Last Days on Earth
Sadie’s Last Days on Earth just started filming on Monday, October 5th. It is a new BrancSeater film that Michael Seater is once again directing (he also co-wrote it with Paula Brancati).

The film is starring: Munro Chambers, Morgan Taylor Campbell, Ricardo Hoyos, and Clark Backo.


Everything in high school is like the world ending and Sadie Collins crippling fear of the coming apocalypse is the heightened version of that. Undeterred by the naysayers, Sadie has two weeks to ready herself before doomsday. She needs to master survivalist cuisine, learn to sew, but there are other things… personal things; go to a high school party, kiss a boy, and most importantly, get her best friend back.
Whether Sadie ultimately faces doomsday or another year of high school, one thing is certain; she needs to figure out who she is and what that means.
Exploring modern teenage anxiety and the universal theme of acceptance from others and ourselves, Sadie’s Last Days on Earth is a commercially skewed feature length film filled with heart and humor. With whip smart dialogue, incredibly original characters, and lead by a totally fresh new young heroine, Sadie’s Last Days On Earth is poised to be a classic. [x]

Joy Tanner (Nora McDonald, from Life with Derek) was kind enough to share a few behind-the-scene pictures of the LWD cast during Season 1 on her twitter. You can view the ones of Michael below. To see the others, check out Joy’s twitter @JoyTanner9!
