I personally donate 2,000 to 4,000 hours of my time every year and have donated or $450,000 over the past 31 years.. Unfortunately I had to file for bankruptcy in 2010 so Im now relying on dvd sales and donations to make productions. Please make a donation today. Thank you for your support.

All actors under the age of 14 must have a parent or parent appointed guardian on set at all times.

My films are rated by the Ontario Film Review Board. For more information on film ratings please see their website.


Our target audience is age 8 to 16. Grown ups may like the films but they we never written or designed for people over the age of 16 except for Echo Beach the Movie which has a target audience 16 to 26.

Sterling Productions is a not for profit and everyone working on our productions are volunteers.  We create opportunities for young actors to build the particle experience that they require to find work in the film and television industry.

Just like hockey football or anything else for that matter, it takes about ten thousand hours of particle experience before anyone will consider you a professional.

Please help our youth by making a donation today.

Hi there,

Welcome to SterlingProductions.ca the internet home of indy not for profit film maker Sterling Johnston. I am a one man band type artist. I do everything from writing the scripts, to building the sets, producing the productions and final selling them.   The plan is to make enough money  to cover the cost of making a film and hopefully fund the next.

Sterling Johnston

Writer, Producer, Director
