Divorce Photographer – Shooting WRAPPED!

Thrilled to say that last Saturday night, we wrapped shooting my short film Divorce Photographer!

This has been a pet project I’ve been preparing forever – writing, rewriting, grant applications, meetings. All this work to turn this little seed of an idea into a fully fledged film. It was an intense three day shoot but our cast and crew gave it their all and made it happen.

I took a peek at the footage on Sat night and it’s looking fantastic – now we’re moving into post production. I’m grateful to everyone who has supported me so far and excited to see it all come together in the editing room!

ECS Coffee Shoot

In January I teamed up with Director/Producer Steve Jesse over at Corporate Films Canada to DP this commercial for ECS Coffee, which airs starting tomorrow on CHCH Hamilton.

Single Thread Theatre – Firebrand Trailer

Back in Dec I also shot this trailer for Single Thread Theatre Company, for their show which just opened yesterday, FIREBRAND .

This was shot in just two hours and with entirely natural light, as we had very tight constraints to work with from the Mackenzie House Museum (which was open that day). Proof that good stuff can happen in short periods of time as long as it’s well planned.

Music Video Shoot – Don’t Get the Clap

Back in December, I teamed up with local Drag Queen Vicki Lix to shoot and direct her first music video parody: Don’t Get the Clap. (Based on Nikki Minaj’s Beez in the Trap).

Here’s the video:

NSI Drama Prize

I am more than way overdue for some blog updates. Again, it’s for all good reasons, but I apologize for the long delay. If you want more frequent updates feel free to follow me on twitter or Facebook.

Probably my biggest news is that in December, I was thrilled to be accepted into the renowned NSI Drama Prize Program for my short film, Divorce Photographer! I will be directing and writing and Shannon Fewster will be producing. What this means is that we’ll be doing a two week bootcamp in early March, and then will receive mentorship, cash, and sponsored support to help us shoot and complete this 10 minute short film.

I was beyond happy to be accepted, after a year of many different grant applications and several years of working with next to no resources – so a huge thank you to the NSI for choosing us and giving us this opportunity. I can’t wait to start our bootcamp and can’t wait to go through the whole process this year.
