Ellie moves to post (and festival updates)

I had an amazing summer, filled with friendships and film work. I had planned to do a post talking about the highlights of my two month break, but I’ve been slammed with work ranging from Ellie work to home work. So until then, I have a brief update on the post production of Ellie, and some festival updates. Ellie The Kickstarter campaign for Ellie was more successful than I could have imagined, bringing in $5,275, which was 175% over my original […]

A month of insanity

I feel like I blinked and woke up in mid-May. The past few months have been absolutely insane, attending festivals for both “We All Go the Same” and “Kurayami no Wa”. I was still wrapping up the final colour grading for Kurayami no Wa (even on the plane), so I wasn’t able to submit it to NFFTY 2015. That being said, I’ve been off my website for some time, so a well deserved update is now here. NFFTY I attended NFFTY […]

Best Director Under 25, Ottawa Independent Video Award

In a night filled with great socializing, networking, some awesome short listed filmmakers and talented folks, I was extremely happy to attend the inaugural Ottawa Independent Video Awards.

I’m thrilled Ottawa is having more events like this […]

The only one I can publicly announce right now is the screening at the Providence Children’s Film Festival. In addition, […]

Six Weeks Since My Last Post

We All Go the Same It’s been over a month since my last post, because I’ve been busy rehearsing and shooting a (unofficial) music video for the Radical Face song “We All Go the Same“. Creating the music video should have been a fairly easy shoot, as the song is only three and a half minutes long. But, the story behind the music video depicts characters from fairy-tales, and that required some detailed makeup and prosthetics work, creating costumes, as well as a ton […]

Festivals, Kurayami no Wa, and an Unnamed Music Video

Morgana is away (on her own) for the month of July, and this week she is attending Prodigy Camp outside of Seattle on a scholarship she won at NFFTY. So I (her dad) am tasked with keeping her website and social media engagement going until she returns. My first order of business? To round-up all the news from the past month… Festival Updates ASK Film Festival – This high-school film festival, in Kosovo, ran over a weekend in April. We knew that […]
