Our full-service film and television unit develops projects that focus on our values of authenticity, diversity, and inclusion in scripted and unscripted genres. Over the years we have cultivated long-standing relationships with broadcasters, streamers, brands, and distributors.
We are also pioneering a new concept in audio storytelling. Our audio programs are recorded on location, with full cast and crew, using custom-designed, mobile audio recording equipment. The result is a transcendent, engaging story, where the screen is your imagination.
Andrew Morris is President and Executive Producer at Hitsby Entertainment. Prior to launching Hitsby, he was the Development and Production Executive for Accessible Media Inc., where he oversaw the original independent production slate for AMI-tv.
Andrew is also the Founding Director of the Disability Screen Office, a national, not-for-profit organization that works with the Canadian screen industry to eliminate accessibility barriers and foster authentic and meaningful disability representation throughout the sector.
Some recent career highlights include developing and commissioning the documentary series Employable Me, winner of the Canadian Screen Award for Best Factual Series (2022) and the Banff World Media Festival Rockie Award for Best Lifestyle Series four years in a row (2018-2021), as well as the podcast/TV series What Happened to Holly Bartlett, one of Oprah Magazine's “12 True-Crime Podcasts That Will Give You Goosebumps”.
In 2017, Andrew’s universal design technique for making media accessible to blind and partially sighted sighted audiences received the FCC Annual Chairman’s Award for Advancement in Accessibility, and today it is taught in schools and enjoyed by Canadians of all abilities on broadcast channels nationwide.
Andrew is recognized as an industry leader of advocacy for authentic representation of people with disabilities in the media, a mentor to emerging media producers, and regularly gives presentations on content development and media accessibility.
