JOEY SCARPELLINO and JORDANA LAJOIE Join the Cast of Millennial “No Labels” Movie MORNING AFTER

Morning After

Work-in-Progress will be pitched at AFM to secure distribution and sales for the feature.

Flirt Films, in collaboration with Byron A. Martin Productions, are proud to announce the wrap of Morning After, a bold and playful drama about sexual fluidity. The film is helmed by award-winning director Patricia Chica from an original screenplay by Kristian Hodko. Byron A. Martin and Marc Carle act as Executive Producers. Filming happened in Montreal’s Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood this past summer.


"MORNING AFTER" AFM Teaser from Patricia Chica on Vimeo.

Outstanding Canadian actors Joey Scarpellino (Les Parents) and Jordana Lajoie (Patrice Lemieux 24-7) both join the team as the emancipated Alex and the provocative Dana respectively. The other talented actors are LAMDA-trained Thomas Vallières (the sexually conflicted Michael), Orphan Black’s regular Zoé de Grand Maison (the vivacious Teegan), and Kristian Hodko (Edward, the catalyst).

This playful coming of age drama is a short film that will serve as a “proof of concept” for the feature film project, presently in development.

Morning After tells the story of Michael, whose life-changing journey is provoked one night while playing a new version of spin-the-bottle that involves chocolate tasting and French kissing. 

“Morning After is perfectly timed to speak to the Millennial generation and sexual fluidity in our culture. It presents an incredible opportunity to bring understanding to and raise awareness around sexual identity issues in society,” says filmmaker Patricia Chica.

Morning After is directed and produced by Patricia Chica; Written by Kristian Hodko; Executive Producer: Marc Carle; Producers: Patricia Chica (Quebec) and Byron A. Martin (Ontario); Co-Executive Producers: Jessica Moreno and Lisa Powers (Los Angeles) and Tariq Rahman (Montreal); Line Producer: Kathy Wolf; Associate Producers: Bonni Ellis, Keith Lane, Ben Ragunton, Richard Duquette, and Andrew Wong; Cinematographer: Martin Bouchard; Art Director: Alexandre Piedon; Sound: Bruno Carrière; Special Effects: Cineffects; Costumes: Josée Métivier; Makeup Artists: Steph Miramontes and Larysa Chernienko.

The producers wish to thank their service companies: Cinepool and Video MTL as well as their sponsors Greatness Within,, TG Geeks.comFous Desserts, Frank & Oak, Clozet Freak Cosmetics, Vicky Beaulieu Design, Kyoto Fleurs and St-Viateur Bagels, and all the 115+ backers on Indiegogo.

The filmmakers are presently looking for distribution, sales agents and investors for the feature. Anyone interested in getting involved with this film can contact Patricia Chica at or request a meeting during the American Film Market in Santa Monica, CA.
