our work - creating and telling stories through art
In addition to providing multimedia production services, DDP showcases and promotes Debbie Deer's various artistic endeavors and projects within the media industry. Recently, Debbie Deer teamed up with the Dance Umbrella of Ontario to produce 30 social media videos to commemorate DUO’s 30 year anniversary! DDP was proud to work with some of Toronto’s premier dance pioneers and the project was a great success, generating a significant increase of traffic to DUO’s pages! In 2015, Debbie co-wrote and directed the critically acclaimed multimedia play 'New School' with executive producer Nicole Pena. 'New School' is an innovative play that challenges secondary students to examine if we are truly living in a post-racial era by discussing issues such as cultural appropriation, interracial relationships, racial profiling and sexuality. 'New School' was commissioned by the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) to be showcased for African heritage Month 2015 and 2016 and has been performed in 16 schools for over 3,000 students. As a result of the success of 'New School', the TDSB made DDP an educational partner in 2016.
