I’ve just recently finished shooting for Thom Fitzgerald‘s upcoming six part mini-series, SEX&VIOLENCE, starring Olympia Dukakis, which will air on Out TV this Fall. This info, along with the photo above, is all I’m permitted to say for the time being. Hush hush.
All I am going to say though, is that if you want to see me naked, you will no longer have to buy me dinner first.
I am thrilled to share the news that my directorial debut, ROOM SERVICE, has been selected by the CBC to represent the Maritimes in this year’s SHORT FILM FACE OFF! Each year, the CBC selects 9 short films from across the country to duke it out for a chance at winning $40k in production funding.
And guess what? It’s all going to be broadcast on national television this August where YOU will then have a chance to vote for your favourite film! Pretty neat, huh?
It’s just about time to get #VoteRoomService trending.
Check out the first still frames from Adam DeViller‘s FOAM DRIVE RENEGADES featuring the talents of myself, Matt Chisholm (who also co-wrote the film alongside DeViller), Gordon White and Reggie, voiced and operated by Rhys Bevan-John.
Yeah, that’s right, I got to make a heist movie with a muppet*.
*…No, not an actual “Muppet (TM)”, but still…
The film is slated for a late Summer / early Fall release, so stay tuned for that, will ya?
This is my entry for Robert Rodriguez’s BlackBerry “Keep Moving” contest wherein he left a portion of his short film, TWO SCOOPS, green-screened, allowing desperate actor-folk like myself to upload their own performances into his film.
Big thanks to Evan Elliot, and Mike Doucette for helping me shoot the scene, and Nick Swimm for pointing the contest out to me. I had a lot of fun making it and now I really want to own a BlackBerry.
Don’t you also want to own a BlackBerry? BUY A BLACKBERRY!

I wanted to make sure that The Academy wasn’t going to give me one of those surprise Oscars for 2012′s ROLLER TOWN before I posted a clip from Picnicface’s feature film, but alas they gave an award to that hack, Christoph Waltz, instead.
For now, us Canadian chumps will have to wait a bit longer to consume the entire film, unlike our neighbours down south who can watch it on Netflix & iTunes. Keep an eye on http://rollertownthemovie.com and the Picnicface FB page for more info!
