Production is currently underway on NSI Features First-developed project A Small Fortune from writer Adam Perry and producer Jason Arsenault. Adam and Jason originally developed A Small Fortune through the course in 2016.

The film follows two Irish moss harvesters who discover a boat full of money. Their decision to keep it leads them down a dark and violent path.

Adam and Jason recently spoke to CBC about the project and bringing more film production to Prince Edward Island.

A Small Fortune is expected to premiere in spring 2020.
