Some independent filmmakers had a tough time during the pandemic to stay creative, and others have adapted. For Jeremy Lutter and Marcy Waughtal of Lower Mainland based Broken Mirror Films in Vancouver, British Columbia, this duo adapted by venturing into producing audio dramas and crafted a piece of “Canadian Noir” with Ghost Town Killer, now available to listen to.

The two aren’t out to reproduce an old time radio show like Dragnet. Instead, they have a modern day tale which sees a young heroine, Lilith Black, digging for the truth and having problems in what to accept as the impossible (especially when this show features ghosts). Their primary focus is on making their tale as realistic as possible. Lutter describes this protagonist to have Fox Mulder’s (X-Files) drive in wanting to believe and Lisbeth Salanda’s (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) tenacity when dealing with people–despite being rough around the edges. 

Black has to explore places that no sane woman should. She’s looking for her sister’s killer. In Fort Macbeth, a town in B.C. lost to time, Lucy Fu’s been wrongfully accused of a different murder. There’s a serial killer on the loose and as Lilith gets her feet wet in all these various cases, she discovers the facts don’t always point to the truth. She’s dealing with prejudice and rivalries with the people she meets. Another figure she’ll encounter is mayor Tiffany Harp with a sordid past. Life isn’t easy in this township, and the influences the writing team drew upon are varied. They’re not making a show like theCW’s Riverdale either.
