LAST FALL wins Theatre BC One Act Play of the year for 2013

I’m chuffed at the accolade and on my way to the red carpet ceremony in a couple of weeks to collect my swag! Thanks again to Joan for her guidance and direction and to the panel of judges and the administration of Theatre BC. 

There will be a reading of LAST FALL at the Kamloops Mainstage Festival that takes place from July 4-12, 2014.

I’m very excited about the upcoming February shoot of Maureen Bradley’s next great feature film TWO 4 ONE. You’ve heard about it on CBC, read about it online, and very soon, I’m going to help (Assistant lighting director, Grip) Maureen bring it to life. Check out the link. Here’s a pic of Maureen and me clowning around…

News for the film: ‘Til Death… and more!

It seems I’m putting up more news than fiction, but it is what it is.  The film I worked on last year and of which I am very proud has had some public breakthroughs as of late.  It is premiering at the Vancouver Short Film Festival and screening at the Whistler Film Festival this fall. This is very exciting for Maureen Bradley (producer) and Connor Gaston (director) as well as the whole crew of the fantastic short. Here are some links to whet your appetite:

Of course you could also click on the upper bar “the making of…” on this blog (look up). I’m credited as Casting Director, Foley Artist, and Key Grip (chief lighting guy) and listed on IMDB- which thrills me.

I’m also delighted to say that I’ll be working on a feature film in the spring too- and perhaps a web series, I’ve finished my new play- Boys Cruise, and I’m ready to start final production and layout of a short graphic novel- Man in a Pinstripe Suit, commissioned (essentially) by the uber-talented multi-media artist and novelist Lee Henderson (The Man Game)  Very exciting times. Now, back to fiction… 

LAST FALL production announcement

For those of you who call Victoria home:

LAST FALL opens for an exclusive three night run this Wednesday (Oct 16 thru 18, 2013) at the Phoenix Theatre on Ring Road. As the writer, I’m quivering with anticipation at seeing my characters come to life. The director, dramaturge, set design team, and stage manager have outdone themselves. The actors are simply amazing. If the rehearsals I’ve seen are any indication of the final product, the performances will be stellar.  Congratulations all. Be brave! Be bold! And break a leg (each)!
