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!

Ok gang, here's a 30 minute short film that serves as The Week Thus Far's Halloween special for 2013.



I shot, directed and edited this over a hectic couple of weeks in October. We went from having no script to showing the finished product to an audience in under 3 weeks. Ryan Ash and Tim Gray put together a great script, and the rest of the gang really turned out some hilarious performances. Ryan did all of the visual effects in the thing, and Craig Ward put together the opening credit sequence.

As insane as the timeline was, this was an incredible learning experience for me. I didn't have time to over think anything, and basically had to improvise the direction of a film. In the future I'd like a bit more time, but I'm incredibly proud of how this thing turned out.

Let me know what you think!

Hey friends! This is a sketch I directed and edited last weekend for this weeks episode of Week Thus Far. Tim Gray wrote and starred in it, and Ryan Ash starred as well. It was a hell of a lot of fun and turned out pretty close to exactly how I imagined it. I'd love it if you gave it a watch!




I also want to remind you that Space Hotel will be playing in the Short Film Competition at Reel Pride Winnipeg on Wednesday, October 16th. There is a juried award as well as an audience choice award, so I would really love it if some people could come out and support the film.

In other Space Hotel news, it is programmed as an Official Online Selection at the Minneapolis Underground Film Festival. The festival is this weekend so it should be available to view streaming on their website. Again, you can vote for it so do me a favour and vote!
