White Rock company takes a siege approach to history

A small White Rock-based feature-type documentary film producer believes her company's latest series Battle Castle will help take it to a new stage of development.

Parallax Film Productions co-owner and series producer Maija Leivo said the show - described as an interactive, trans-medieval journey into castle engineering, siegecraft and clashes that transform mortals into legends - began airing on Thursday nights on History Television Feb. 23 and is doing very well.

"It's been amazing," said Leivo of the $2.5-million production, which was put together over a 16-month period and will run until March 29. "We've filmed on location at each castle and other areas in Europe. We'll build on this and enter another phase of development.

"There's a future in history."
