After a career that spanned twenty-seven years as at the National Film Board of Canada, Michael Mahoney left in 1998 to join the private sector. Now, after more than four decades in this business, his work is known throughout North America.
He has made his mark in the Canadian Film Industry with his work in both dramatic and documentary formats, and has met with notable success including two Gemini Awards and a Genie Awards.
In 1999 his company Magic Rock became active in pursuing and drawing American projects to Nova Scotia. Valerie Halman joined the company as a Production Manager and they set forth forging relationships that would result in a dedicated circle of production partners and a long series of work for many here in Nova Scotia. With a turnkey operation, production offices in the heart of Halifax, and world-class crew, they are able to provide a production experience that is second to none.
With over thirty television and theatrical dramas behind them, they have enjoyed the experience of working with a breadth of production companies, studios and networks. Two Emmy nominations, a Christopher Award, and a Cine Golden Eagle, are a few ways that their work has been recognized.
Magic Rock has just completed production on the Dimension Films/Spike TV Series THE MIST – slated to air in June of 2017 and the feature film POLAROID for Dimension Films. Some of the other studios and networks they work with include, NBC, CBS, A&E, Lifetime, Fox, Sony Television, Sony Stage 6, Columbia TriStar, Warner Bros, The Wolper Organization, National Geographic and PBS.
