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.

New May 14, 2020

With the Covic 19 I’m getting very concerned about the health and safety of the all parents and actors. The more I ready about the current pandemic the more concern I have. I think it’s best that we don’t make any films this this year and revisit making films in 2021. We really need a vaccine to insure everyones safety. I know the actors will be upset that the films are on hold but I’m also sure that they will understand.

The films maybe on hold for now but the bills coming in are not. Please lend a hand and make a donation or buy a DVD, Bluray or Download to help cover costs to keep the doors open. In the coming weeks I will be adding downloads of old films for sale as right now its supper hard to get all he parts to make DVDs. Also I need to buy a new computer and programs. It seams like companies are making stuff to break or not work for more than 4 years so people are forced into buying new stuff all the time.

Theses are trying times. Be safe everyone, Stay home and avoid large crowds.
