UNIVERSAL PICTURES CANADIAN PRODUCTIONS
Universal Pictures, (GUP), is a Canadian film production company,
which is partially owned by Global Universal. Because Canadian
law restricts the amount of foreign ownership in any Canadian
Film company, Global Universal’s ownership in GUP is limited
to 30% of its capital shares.
Jackie Giroux, President of Global Universal Pictures, and Founder
of Global Universal Film Group, has spent a lifetime in the film
industry. She has earned a stellar reputation for writing and
producing feature films “on time” and “within
the budget”. She is performance driven and has successfully
developed, produced and sold numerous feature-length pictures
throughout her extensive career the film industry.
Jackie Giroux’s track record as a “very competent,
hands-on producer” is why both the Federal government of
Canada and the Provincial government of New Brunswick have continued
to provide GUP with numerous sources of fully bankable tax credits,
which will be used with film distribution incentives to offset
a substantial portion of financing required to produce each film.
Global Universal Pictures completed its first film “Blue
Seduction” in March of 2009, starring Billy Zane and Estella
Warren. GUP has commenced production on its second film tentatively
entitled “American Sunset”, scheduled to be completed
in July of 2009, and plans to produce an additional two films
prior to December.
