Our Silver Screen Connection

From time to time, we are given the opportunity to work on really exciting and unique projects around the city.  Such was the case last Spring, when we were asked to lend a hand on the set of the Sony Entertainment Pictures film “Heaven is for Real”.  The film was partially filmed in Winnipeg, and a few of our Overhead Door of Winnipeg staff were on hand to help with set installations and give on set technical advice.

“Heaven is for Real” is based on the No. 1 bestselling book of the same title and tells the story of four-year-old Colton Burpo’s vision of heaven after a life-changing near death experience.  The film stars Academy Award ® nominee and Emmy ® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo, the small town father of Colton who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s experience with the world.

We’re pretty excited to check out the film in theatres!  Not only did we get to help out on the Winnipeg set but as it turns out, Greg Kinnear was also an Overhead Door distributor in the film!  Throughout the film, he can be seen driving his red Overhead Door work truck and wearing his Overhead branded shirts!  What an amazing opportunity to be able to get our brand greater recognition… on the silver screen!
