I wanted to call this "A Summary of Every Film-Related Thing Happening in My Life in the Last Six Months" because that's a more descriptive and enticing title, but it's a bit long. Similar to the quite-long title of a movie I'm in called "Events Transpiring Before, During, And After A High School Basketball Game" … Continue reading Recent Film Things
Back in November I attended my first feature film premiere for a film I did back in 2017. The film still isn't out yet, but who cares about that when you can see what I wore on the red carpet instead? So on the day of the premiere, I was helping a couple of friends … Continue reading What I Wore: A Red Carpet Event
Video editing is such a particular kind of work. There's no hiding from it, and I kind of like that. When I say there's no hiding from it, what I mean is that it takes all of your attention. You can't be listening to music while you edit, you can't have a tv show on … Continue reading How I Edit Videos
Super Roommates began filming on Friday the 13th of March. It was amidst a snowstorm, and there was an accident on Deerfoot, so I arrived on set after pretty much all my cast & crew, but our location still wasn't available to us until fifteen minutes after our call time so it wasn't bad. Yet. … Continue reading Production Day 1: Friday the 13th

On Thursday November 28th, Storyhive announced which 40 web series pilots they've decided to fund. Mine was one of them. If you need to catch up, I recommend reading my post, Pitching a Web Series. I'll be honest, I actually found out my pitch had been successful the day before it was announced. I got … Continue reading Producing a Web Series
I haven't been posting as much lately as I should have, but that is because for the last month or so, I've been working on a web series. If you follow my reading/writing blog Precarious Reader, you may have read my post Derailed in which I mentioned that I had put aside the novel on … Continue reading Pitching a Web Series
I got super lucky in January in terms of roles. I managed to worm my way into four short films, two as the lead, one bit part and one background. But apparently that wasn't enough for me, because I wanted to make a short film. If you've been around very long, you may remember SIV, … Continue reading A Secret Project
If you've been around long enough, you might remember I had written and directed a short film called SIV, based on the short story I wrote (this is the original short story, and this is the sequel from which the short film was made), and which premiered earlier this year. Now, at long last, my … Continue reading SIV the Short Film is Out!
This past week has been one of the busiest I've had so far this year, and all in a good way. A great way, in fact. It started out with more mild things that were just nice. We went to a family friend's dinner for the asian new year, I met with a director for … Continue reading My Film Premiered!
