Be a Hero (Horror PSA)

Near the beginning of November of last year, I was honoured with the opportunity to once again work with one of my favourite people in our industry, Vanessa Ionta Wright, on the set of a PSA spearheaded by world famous twin horror icons, Jen and Sylvia Soska, to raise awareness of our country’s need for blood donations.

It was a long day full of fun and excitement, and I felt like I was extending Haunt season just a little bit because I was in my element as one of the Art PAs. I helped decorate the set and make it look like a terrible explosion happened, and I was also able to fabricate the hero prop and run the foggers for the shoot.

Look out below! Just in time to wrap up February which I like to call “Women in Horror Month” here in my house.

In the meantime, since we’re on the subject, please donate blood. #BeAHero

Nightmare’s Gate 2017

I’m a little late with this, but I wanted to talk about one of the greatest awards I’ve ever received. It all started with me signing up for a second year with Nightmare’s Gate.

A few months later I’m exhausted, bruised, semi-permanently stained with red dye #5 and diesel fuel. I’m also honoured with the reward for “Actor of the Year.”

I want to give a huge thank you to the entire cast and crew of that show. I only ended up earning that award because they were so amazing at what they do, I had to up my game. Each night they motivated me to reach farther, try harder, and be a little more sick in the head and terrible in the mouth. (Sorry for cursing around all those kids, but hey being an Evil Clown is a rough form of art.)

Without them I’d be only me.

Well… I’d also be tazed to death for being the only guy working a big giant haunted house, and I’m sure the local cops wouldn’t be too keen on that, yeah?

Blue Collar Hustle: The Series

Today marks a pretty big deal for me.

A few months ago I was approached by an esteemed colleague here in the local indie film scene to help him with his newest project, Blue Collar Hustle. First I was just content with working with Geoffrey again, after doing the Real Resident 2 short film and the Running With Wolves proof of concept trailer with him. However, after meeting the writer of the series, and finding out what he was trying to accomplish, I went all in for it. Continue reading
