Meeting number 4 today on my new short film The Son is a Star.

Very happy to be working again with Thomas Billingsley | Director of Photography, Carolyn Williams ,Amy-Leigh Poitras and Brian Minato on this one. It usually takes a couple of years to develop my films so hopefully we’ll be going to camera early 2016.




Bruised screening at Scares That Care!

Posted by Jen - June 12th, 2014








Our next Bruised screening is Saturday June 28th/2014 at the Scares That Care! Film Festival. This is one special festival – they donate all money from the Scares That Care weekend and film festival to help out families in need. This is so cool – I’m very proud that we can be a part of this event.

“Scares That Care!” is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides money, toys and other items to help sick children. We have two other programs consisting of “Scares For Pairs,” where we help women fighting breast cancer and partnered with horror icon Kane Hodder for the “I Helped Kane” program, where we provide assistance to those children who have suffered serious burn injuries.

We are a 100% VOLUNTEER organization in order to maximize our supporters donations to those who need it!” – Scares That Care website






A very talented man.
