Hiltz Squared Media Group was originally conceived by brother and sister Jonathan and Naomi Hiltz while they were in high school. At first, the brother and sister team used the company to create shorts, films and documentaries. Later they would team up with Producer Myles Shane and transform the company in to a state of the art multi-media production company, sales and distribution company and an aggressive player in today's digital landscape.
Recently HSMG completed the A&E, Investigation Discovery, crime documentary, "Sex, Fame & Murder." The documentary tells the story of Luka Magnotta, who was sentenced to life in prison for killing Chinese student Jun Lin and uploading the murder to the Internet. The film was directed by Naomi Hiltz, and was produced and written by Myles Shane and Jonathan Hiltz.
Before HSMG produced "Sex, Fame & Murder", the team developed and associate produced the animated series TOONED! for Breakthrough Media and Canwest Global. The show examined Saturday morning cartoons from the 1970's to the early 1990's.
In 2009 Naomi Hiltz directed the documentary KANAKO: CHALLENGING THE SYSTEM. The documentary followed Kanako Otsuji, Japan's first lesbian candidate running for the Japanese congress. The film was produced with financial assistance from OUT TV.
In the early 2000's, HSMG produced three ground breaking shows for OUT TV. Fairy Tale, the world's first same sex dating show. I Now Pronounce You- the world's first same sex wedding show and Cover Guy - the search for Canada's top male model.
On the distribution side Hiltz Squared has acquired many tremendous films and have dealt with broadcasters world wide. Some include: CBC, CBC DOCUMENTARY, A&E, AETN, SBS, CANAL D, YES, YLE, DR, BELL MEDIA, CORUS, ROGERS MEDIA and many others.
A few of the well known films HSMG has sold over the years include: ANITA O'DAY:LIFE OF A JAZZ SINGER, THE ANATOMY OF HATE, LIFE AFTER TOMORROW (The Annie story), and TOXIC SOUP.
Currently HSMG is developing three news shows for the digital and linear mediums and continuing to distribute all over the world.
