First up, I finally got my short film "Hockey Dad" shot & in the can, so to speak. I have it near complete and will be unleashing it unto the world very soon. The first thing I am going to do is have a screening for my cast and crew. After that I am going to release exclusively here on my website for a weekend and invite my fellow film peeps to check it out. I will also have a live feed where people can ask questions about the film and chat.
Currently I am planning out a Film Festival route with my awesome "PMD", Gemma! She's very good and I do hope she get's into Producing--she would be great for it!
I produced my friend Chaz's short film "Juliet" in May. Looking forward to the premiere of that one! She was awarded the First Film Fund from the Winnipeg Film Group to make it!
Next, I went to Toronto in June with the Noble Thiefs & Pipe'n'Hat Studios for the NXNE festival. I had a great time and Pipe'n'Hat put on quite the show. It was an excellent experience.
I also had a photoshoot with my friend Meaghan. Check out my Photo's section to see the pic's! She is quite fun to work with!
In July I Produced, Directed, Shot & Edited a Music Video for Drezus for his Mixtape release. The video was for his track "Outta Here". It was a fun shoot and so far the video got a great response! Of course, I wouldn't have been able to pull it off without help from my crew: Joe E, Honey, Dennis S, Shelly, and Dennis Sc.! & the awesome extra's whom all made it out! Great time!
At the beginning of August I went on a canoe trip and directed for the Documentary "We Are Metis" produced by my friend Dennis of Red Flag Films. Keep an eye for the in the near future! (I've included the teaser trailer he shot for it)
I also had moving to get done. Onto the next phase of my life.
September I had a photoshoot with my friend Kim. I always have a great time on photoshoots! Again, check out my Photo section to see the pics!
I've also been working to finish up a video project for University of Manitoba's Aboriginal Student Recruitment. It's a fun project & I am pretty much done. The only negative thing is I realize I have a difficult time sitting down for hours on end. My back actually begins to hurt after the 6 hour mark--haha
The beginning of October(this month) I shot a music video for the Filthy Animals. a couple weeks ago which It's having its' release this Friday! Looking forward to it!
I'm also helping out my fellow filmmaker Jenna, along with her sister Justina, both of "Neepin Films" with their short film "Mark". Looks like I'll be Production Manager. Shooting is in November.
Through all that, I have been putting together the Filmmaker-Actor Potlucks. The next one is this Thursday. We usually get 20-30 people attending the event and networking/ meeting with their fellow filmmakers/actors. It's always an excellent event for everyone!
Thanks for reading. Now check out some pictures & video from the past 6 months!
