The Tablet is an adventure movie filmed in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It explores the hypothesis that adventurers from China had arrived in North America before Christopher Columbus. The Tablet theory suggests that, when these explorers from China came to Canada they gave relics and tablets to the Mi'kmaq who hid them. These treasures were later found by modern-day explorers.

A young construction worker, Nathan Lewis, finds what appears to be a
treasure map, and seeks the help of a university archeologist to help him discover the truth behind the map.

The Tablet is currently in final editing and will be released to
film festivals in the summer of 2017.

 

 


The Tablet
Director - Rob Letourneau

Rob first discovered his love of movies growing up in Canada's capital, Ottawa. After a visit to Warner Brothers Studios in LA he realized that film making was going to drive a passion in him. With years of experience in the music industry as both a drummer and songwriter he decided to focus on the short film, The Map, with his wife Judy's help. Influenced by so many great movies and actors he wrote this screenplay about a couple musicians battling the system to get music published.

An Honours graduate of York University and Trebas Institute for Recording Engineering as well as working at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in television and radio gave him a great background for this next step. Years of playing in bands and live performances brings a musical background that will more than likely live throughout all of his projects.

Working in an artistic environment and surrounded by talented people has been a journey of happiness that Rob plans to continue with future films.
