“ROLLER TOWN” CLIP

rt
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.

…Enjoy!

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!

ROLLER TOWN TRAILER


I hope you’re wearing your laughing pants, because Cineplex has the premiere of the ROLLER TOWN trailer, available for your viewing right here!

Picnicface’s debut feature-film has been making the festival rounds (it’ll be playing Montreal’s Fantasia Fest on July 29th) for close to a year now, and will be hitting cinemas nationwide on September 21st!

But seriously, please don’t watch this film without your laughing pants on. You’re going to really make a mess.

ROLLER TOWN IN HALIFAX


Picnicface’s feature film ROLLER TOWN, wherein I do that acting thing I do, is having a screening in Halifax on Wednesday, June 6th at Park Lane.

But Glen, you ask “I’ve already seen ROLLER TOWN at the Atlantic Film Festival, or some other film festival, why would I want to see it again? Oh also, you were really, really good in it, too! Like, so good!”

Firstly, thank you. Secondly, this is the first public screening of the Director’s Cut, which I know in some cases doesn’t mean much at all, but in this one it does. I’ve seen both cuts, and this one gets the thumbs up from me.

Here’s the link to the Facebook event page for those of you who are into that kind of thing: https://www.facebook.com/events/391202120931482/

Lastly, Picnicface just had their television show cancelled. I really don’t think they can handle you not showing up to their movie. /GUILT.exe

“ROLLER TOWN” AT SLAMDANCE!


My smug mug will be gracing screens in Park City, Utah once again this year as Picnicface’s ROLLER TOWN has been accepted to the 2012 Slamdance Film Festival!

Running during Sundance, Slamdance (from January 20th to the 26th) was launched as a counter-movement to the prestigious film festival, offering up the best in alternative filmmaking from independent filmmakers from around the globe.

That is where Andy Bush‘s ROLLER TOWN, wherein I play Mark Little‘s Father, “Rick” (yes, you read that correctly), will have it’s stateside premiere (it played the Atlantic Film Festival this past September) this January. That was a terribly constructed sentence and I apologize for that.

Side-note: Season one of Picnicface’s sketch comedy show, properly titled PICNICFACE, concludes tonight with an episode about dreams. 11:30 PM AST on The Comedy Network.

PAST "ROLLER TOWN" BLOG-ENTRIES:

TWO MEN, TWO COWS, TWO GUNS

Filmmaker/Haligonian/stand-up-comedian/actor/fellow-blogger Pardis Parker (pardisparker.com) has released his new short film, TWO MEN, TWO COWS, TWO GUNS to the internet after a lengthy stint on the film festival circuit.

I had nothing to do with the film whatsoever, I just wanted to share this fun short flick from a fellow Haligonian blogger. Blog solidarity. Pardis’ previous short film AFGHAN (Click here to watch), starring himself & Picnicface’s Mark Little, remains one of my favourite short films ever produced in the Maritimes.

For now, enjoy this new offering from Parker starring the awesome talents of John Dunsworth, Sherry Smith and Levi MacDougall

ROLLER TOWN

I am mondo-excited to announce today that I have been cast in a Principal role in Picnicface’s upcoming feature film, ROLLER TOWN! The film is written by P-face members Mark Little, Scott Vrooman and Andy Bush (who is also directing the damn thing).

As is always the case, that’s about all of the information that I can fork over at this time.

Make sure to stay tuned to here or http://www.RollerTownTheMovie.com for updates as they come along. Shooting starts Monday!

ROLLER TOWN NEEDS YO’ MONEYZ

Picnicface’s ROLLER TOWN is now gearing up to develop their two minute faux-trailer into a full-blown, full-length feature film shooting in Halifax next month. Much the same as Jason Eisener‘s HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN, their short trailer turned feature film included one thing…

Me, baby. Me.

You put me in your project, and I will skyrocket that puppy into Hollywoodland quicker than you can say “Who doesn’t mind showing their ass on camera?”

So either I have the magic/voodoo touch, or I’m just a lucky bastard who has managed to work with some really talented folks.

Regardless, Picnicface is looking for funding for ROLLER TOWN, and they are looking to you to donate some of your hard-earned dollars; but lucky for you, they have some pretty amazing rewards for those of you looking to share some love…

But seriously, c’mon, I am magic.

The Button

I meant to post this when it was released (about a month ago), and then my lazy ass forgot about it, so here we go!

Most of the stuff that I post on the blog has to do with my involvement in front of the camera, well this is BEHIND! Dun-Dun-DUN! Three sentences into this blog entry, and 100% of them have ended in an exclamation mark; my apologies.

The short film being presented to you today is THE BUTTON, Directed by Andrew Bush, written by Mr. Bush & Mark Little (both whom you may know from the sketch comedy troupe Picnicface). I was the AD, that’s Assistant Director for all you non-geeks. The short is two minutes long, and very funny. Enjoy…

Atlantic Shorts IV

A few weeks ago, I posted an entry about the annual heartbreak of the rejected films & filmmakers for the Atlantic Film Festival; well now that the AFF has released it’s program to the world, a hand full of people can rejoice.

I am one of those lucky bastards that squeaked through.

This year, the short (almost avant-garde) film LE CHIEN (directed by Jeff Wheaton), which I starred in, will play as part of Atlantic Shorts IV on Monday, September 21st, 7:00pm at Empire Park Lane 8.

I’m incredibly excited because (1) I don’t have to work that night, and (2) Atlantic Shorts IV is looking like it’s going to be an awesome lineup of locally produced short films.

The lineup includes SuNfiSh (starring Mary Fay Coady), DOG GIRL (cinematography & editing by Dayle Hendrix), MEAGAN, LE CHIEN (that’s me), SLUG (starring Evany Rosen), & Andrew Bush‘s Bridge Award BACKSHIFT, which offers up a healthy portion of Picnicface members…

So come on out… I’ll buy you a chocolate bar.
