Trials, Tribulations and Triumph — We are sure to experience them all
On Monday, March 19th, 2018, Good Harbor Blue Productions and Diane Carey formally announced our feature film project secretly called Project Piper for that last few months. We know what you’re thinking. Who would be so crazy to take on a project of this caliber in Michigan, a state with no film incentives? Why Michiganders, of course! We love the creativity and passion we have for filmmaking here, and we don’t want to take this film to another state just because they’ll give us a little money; ok, a lot of money in some cases. We’ve got talent. We’ve got ingenuity. We’ve got passion. Come along! Follow our journey and cheer us on. Subscribe for updates right here:

Screenwriter Diane Carey

Award-winning novelist takes her first story to the screen

Diane Carey is a novelist, author of 53 published books, including multiple New York Times Bestsellers, and bestsellers on the Waldenbooks, BDalton and USAToday lists. Genres include STAR TREK, ALIEN, S.W.A.T., science fiction, Civil War, historicals and media-tie-in, and a Young Adult adventure series about teenagers involved in emergency rescue and police work. Also, a large 2011 non-fiction book on Beaumont Hospitals. All of which, were accomplished with conception, inspiration and support of her brilliant husband, Greg Brodeur.

Diane has played bagpipes for nearly 40 years. She was one of the first women to learn and perform with a bagpipe band, traditionally all-men, historically military. She is currently a member of the Flint Scottish Pipe Band. This story is loosely based on her own experiences, told through the perseverance of a young Asian-American boy whose growth and achievement reflect her own untraditional successes in life.

Filmmakers about the movie

We are incredibly excited to bring this story to life. Over the last few months we have put together a wonderful team, using mostly local talent. Being that our state no longer offers incentives, it is even more important to our team to support filmmaking here in Michigan.

Taylor Gradowski, Good Harbor Blue Productions - Producer/Director

I wondered why don't we see ourselves reflected in family films? It's been a long time since I saw an alien in my backyard. So I decided I'm going to do movies that reflect our lives and the things we love doing and sharing together no matter where you are from.

Diane Carey - Screenwriter

I read a lot of scripts. When I read Diane's I was pleasantly surprised. It is not only solid, it has a unique cross-cultural element. I love Scotland and have visited the country four times. I am really excited to be a part of this is an inspirational film.

Osric Chau - Lead Actor

Well, that didn't go so well.

On December 3rd, 2018, our official Champion Supreme the Movie Indiegogo campaign ended and unfortunately did not make its goal. Those who have contributed, per Indiegogo rules, will have their money returned from Indiegogo directly.

Our team over the last year has been working very diligently by connecting with groups around the world via social media, email, phone and even snail mail. We’ve met a variety of amazing individuals at festivals and events as well. We continue to do so as we move forward with our film production endeavors.
This campaign was a first for this project in an attempt to keep it strictly independent. Moving forward, our goal is to seek other avenues and opportunities to properly fund this production in order to bring it to the bring screen in the year(s) to come. 


We sincerely thank all of you for your time, kindness and support.  The team will be taking a break for the holidays to be with our families and plans to regroup in the new year to begin this project anew. If you have any questions or contact us in regards to this project, please email us at contact@goodharborblue.com or info@championsupreme.com.

In the Name of Research

Have you ever tried Haggis? Taylor, Alex, and Tammie did at the Glen Erin Robert Burns dinner in East Lansing. The things you do in the name of research! Actually, it wasn’t bad. Diane did a great job bringing out the Scot in all of us.

Wednesday is National Tartan Day!

April 6th is National Tartan Day in the US! According to Wikipedia: Tartan Day is a celebration of Scottish heritage on 6 April, the date on which the Declaration of Arbroath was signed in 1320. It originated in Canada in the mid-1980s. It spread to other communities of the Scottish diaspora in the 1990s.

How will you show your colors?
