I am about to retire my short film Brain, Heart, Super8 from the festival circuit, so I will be putting it on the website sometime this week.

Dickfore Premieres At The 4th Annual Calgary (Super 8) Filmmaker’s Challenge

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

Dickfore will be premiering as an entry at the 4th Annual Calgary (Super 8) Filmmaker’s Challenge this Thursday. Here are the details.

Thursday, March 26 at The Distillery Public House (839 5 Ave SW) in Calgary, AB. Doors at 7 pm and the show starts at 8 pm.

This is the only time this cut of the film will screen! This is the rushed get-it-in-on-time cut of the film which I will be revisiting with a real editor later. Also, my apologies to director of photography Dan Dumouchel for misspelling his name in the short’s credits and the poster below! (Note about below poster: this is not actually the final poster, just something I did up at picnik.com for fun!) EDIT: Also misspelled in the poster – producer Marc Vandergraaf.

A Temp Poster for Dickfore!

Hey kids!

My friend, Derek Bisbing, was good enough to come out to the set of Dickfore and do our still photography. He just posted them on his site and they look fantastic! Check ’em out below!

Dickfore is in the Can

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Shot my Calgary (Super 8 ) Challenge film on Sunday and now its time for editing!

I want to thank everyone who came out and worked on it. We had a great cast and crew who were both talented and patient.  (Which is good because I learned a good lesson about scheduling; lets just say it should have been a two day shoot!)

Once I get the short all edited together, it will screen on March 26th at The Distillery Public House in Calgary as part of over a dozen other films created for the Calgary (Super 8 ) Filmmaker’s Challenge.

The Making of Dead Walkers

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

A friend of mine, Spencer Estabrooks,  shot a zombie western this summer called Dead Walkers. I lent a hand hauling lights up and down hills for a day on set and it all looked pretty cool.

The production just put of a little behind the scene vignette and I thought I’d share the sneak peak of Spencer Estabrooks’ old west living dead epic!
