Global Universal Pictures, (GUP), is a Canadian film production company, which is partially owned by Global Universal. Because Canadian law restricts the amount of foreign ownership in any Canadian Film company, Global Universal’s ownership in GUP is limited to 30% of its capital shares.

Jackie Giroux, President of Global Universal Pictures, and Founder of Global Universal Film Group, has spent a lifetime in the film industry. She has earned a stellar reputation for writing and producing feature films “on time” and “within the budget”. She is performance driven and has successfully developed, produced and sold numerous feature-length pictures throughout her extensive career the film industry.

Jackie Giroux’s track record as a “very competent, hands-on producer” is why both the Federal government of Canada and the Provincial government of New Brunswick have continued to provide GUP with numerous sources of fully bankable tax credits, which will be used with film distribution incentives to offset a substantial portion of financing required to produce each film.

Global Universal Pictures completed its first film “Blue Seduction” in March of 2009, starring Billy Zane and Estella Warren. GUP has commenced production on its second film tentatively entitled “American Sunset”, scheduled to be completed in July of 2009, and plans to produce an additional two films prior to December.
