Gimli Film Festival

Good news! The Gimli Film Festival is taking place at the end of July, and I'm involved!

The Ringer, which was written by Tim Gray, directed by yours truly and originally produced for The Week Thus Far will be screened as part of the Manitoba Short Films program. And even better, there will be an award of $1000 for the audience choice of best film.

The screening takes place Friday, July 25th at 2:00 pm at the Gimli Theatre. If you're in cottage country, come see some great local talent on display. We are in great company.

Also! My proposal for The 90s was selected as a finalist for the Emerging Filmmaker Competition. So on July 24th I have to get up in front of an audience and panel of judges to pitch my film in the hopes of winning $10,000 to make it! Wish me luck!

The Heist

This one's a little bit late. I directed and edited this longer sketch for Week Thus Far a couple of weeks ago. The script was written by Michael Blomquist and it stars Tim Gray, Andy Noble and Dana Smith.

#worldstoughestjob

Yesterday we at The Week Thus Far decided to jump on the viral video bandwagon and shoot a parody of the #worldstoughestjob video. With a brilliant script by Michael Blomquist, I shot and edited this thing all in one night. Share it up!

Hey gang! It was a big week. The show for Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba at the Pantages Playhouse went amazingly well on Saturday night. We may have over-delivered with a bit of a long show, but it really seemed like everyone enjoyed it. Or they were just being polite. Either way, good times! It should be online soon at the Week Thus Far YouTube channel.

Speaking of being online, here is the St. Patrick's Day special that we premiered at the King's Head last night. Continuing our trend of re-appropriating 90s movie titles, this one is called "Dude, Where's My Craig?"



It was a real blast to shoot and put together. I'm incredibly proud of how this turned out. It definitely has a bit more of my sensibility in terms of weirdness. This season is really turning out to be a great one, and that's a testament to everyone involved really stepping up their game and delivering at the top of their ability.

It's a big week for The Week Thus Far! This Saturday night we are doing a supersized show at the Pantages Playhouse s a fundraiser for Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba. The doors open at 7:30 pm and tickets are $20. Take a look at the Facebook Event.

As a result of this show, we've been getting a lot of publicity this week. We've got articles in:

The Winnipeg Sun

The Winnipeg Free Press

The Uniter

The Projector

As well as being featured on a number of radio stations.

In addition to this huge show, we've also finished post-production on Dude, Where's My Craig? The newest half hour pre-tape special for St. Patrick's Day. It should be airing on ShawTV this week, and we're having a premiere screening on Monday, March 24th at The King's Head Pub. After Monday it will also be available online.

Holy moly, how the time has flown. I haven't had anything to communicate while The Week Thus Far has been on a hiatus, hence the lack of updates.

Well that's about to change!

We're back to work on the seventh season, and it's started with a bang! Take a look at the first sketch of the season.



I wrote, directed, shot and edited this sketch. Ryan Ash did the FX shot and designed the animated Game of Thrones style logo.

Because we had a bit more time before the season began, I was able to do more post-production work. I'm still learning a lot, but I did some audio processing and colour correction. It's a little rough around the edges, but over all I'm very pleased with how this turned out.

Right now I'm knee-deep in editing the Week Thus Far St. Patrick's day special. It will be a full pre-taped episode in the same style as last year's Halloweend special I Know What You Did Last Season. It's an incredibly weird episode and is really taking the show in a new direction. Stay tuned!

The newest sketch I directed and edited for The Week Thus Far is online! Take a look folks.



The season is wrapping up now, so I won't be doing any new ones until the spring. It'll be nice to have a break and recharge the batteries. Also, I'm working on some other projects to get up and running next year. So stay tuned for that!

In other news, The Uniter held a poll for Winnipeg's best... things? In any case, two of my things placed on the list! We didn't win either category, but Space Hotel got second best film, and Comedy Plus Time Equals Tragedy tied for third best theatrical production. So thanks to everyone who voted!
