Wavelength Entertainment is the parent company of several Wavelength branded companies such as Wavelength Distribution, Wavelength documentary and Wavelength Studios. The design principles need to incorporate nicely into these subsidiaries. We develop, produce and distribute non-fiction television shows (documentary and Reality), dramatic production and virtual reality content.

Poster cover art for a new docu-series as follows (for print and online): NEWCOMERS (6 x 30" docu-series) In the past two years, Canada has welcomed over 45,000 refugees. While many have arrived through government agencies, thousands have been welcomed through private sponsorship - a program that is uniquely Canadian and one that has quickly become an inspiration around the world. This program has allowed Canadians to offer support and a new home to more than 275,000 refugees since its beginning in 1979. Recently, more than a dozen countries made inquiries about the private sponsorship system in hope of emulating it. In Canada’s private sponsorship model, groups of Canadians band together to truly make a difference. They help overseas refugees make their way to Canada and help them adjust to a new life in a new land. Private sponsorship is about people helping people across cultures and around the globe. Canadian Newcomers is an observational documentary TV series by Wavelength Entertainment that will showcase the inspirational stories that arise from this uniquely Canadian initiative. The series will begin by following the dedicated staff of the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) in Saskatoon, a faith-based organization that helps facilitate private sponsorships. The MCC provides guidance and connects willing sponsors with overseas refugees. In each episode, we will meet a different group of Canadians who have come together and approached the MCC, hoping to make a difference. We will follow their own journey, one that involves organizing, fundraising, and finding a suitable home for the sponsored family to live in. We will follow their initial meeting at the airport when the refugees finally land in Canada, an anxious and emotional day for everyone involved. We will learn of the newcomers' own history and journey. In the days and weeks that follow, their sponsors try to meet their needs and show them the basics of life in Canada. It can be a challenging and rewarding time. Private sponsors are responsible for helping the former refugees adjust and gain independence by the end of their first year in Canada. Most often, it becomes a deep cross-cultural relationship that last
The art should appeal to an international audience and not just Canadians. It should reflect a series that will be entertaining, positive, uplifting, rather than just the stories of hardship that refugees encounter. The series will be about the sponsors, as well as the newcomers. Representational images that convey the above are fine. An alternate working title is: BORDERLESS. Design should be dramatic and look like something you would see on NETFLIX, A&E or HBO.
