Once again I am ecstatic to be a part of another amazing TIFF Kids! As always, it’s great seeing other kids film enthusiasts, chatting about new projects and ideas, and… SEEING ALL THE GREAT NEW FLICKS FROM AROUND THE WORLD!!! Great job Liz Muskala and her fantastic team for another great year!!
Some of my favourite flicks so far (warning I cried in all of them):
We may only shoot for 3 or 4 days but a LOT of work is put into making the films both leading up to the shoot and after the shoot is done and the film is in post production. There are also a whole lot of AMAZING people working real hard behind the camera making it all come together!
THE INTERGALACTIC SPACE ADVENTURES OF CLEO AND ANOUK:
I’ve been secretly working away on a new short film idea. Top secret for now but it’ll be a hilarious eye-popping, head rolling, womp’n stomp’n good time. An original 2D animated short that I wrote and created with character designs by my SUPER TALENTED pal Kathryn Durst .
We’ve got our fingers crossed that ‘Nick’ likes it and we get to make it!! STAY TUNED AND CROSS ALL YOUR DIGITS FOR US!!
I am a born and bred Toronto kid that has grown up riding the streets on two wheels and even one wheel! TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING!! So… get on your bike and HAVE FUN!!
This is a short doc I made for school in 2008 (when I was in 3rd year film production at Ryerson University) that celebrates my love of cycling in the city. It is a colourful parade of wheels, happiness, activism, and colour. Enjoy!
This past January The Intergalactic Space Adventures of Cleo and Anouk played in its 12th film festival!!!!! Despite the cold kids from Peterborough Ontario (nice and close to home) attended ReFrame’s Reel Kids Peterborough International Film Festival where they were able to see our lovely flick alongside a bunch of other really amazing films!
Despite the coldest February on record, snow, ice, and harsh winds, we are starting to get The Ghost of Grandpa Tong off the ground. This week we did a preliminary location scout and next week …. we hope to cast.
CALLING ALL ACTORS YOUNG AND OLD (quite old). WE WANT YOU!!
