BEHIND THE SCENES: take a peek at how the films are made

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!

Pitching a New Flick….Fingers Crossed!

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!!

Spring Has Sprung!! Time to Take to the Streets and RIDE YOUR BIKE!!

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!
