Now, here’s something I’ve been working on for A LONG TIME. In some ways, for a year. And in other ways, for two decades.
HighballTV: a streaming service that brings the film festival experience to you! It’s a hub to watch those undiscovered gems from film festivals that you’d otherwise never be able to find available after the initial festival run.
It’s something that I’ve been dreaming of for so very long, and we’re proud to be kicking it off in style by bringing the film festival favourite “The Drawer Boy” to theatres across Canada, and to audiences anywhere, on any screen on Highball.TV!
It’s a beautiful film based on Michael Healey’s seminal play by the same name, which is one of the most produced plays in North America. And of course, you can now rent, or by The Drawer Boy on Highball, or you can subscribe to Highball and watch The Drawer Boy along with dozens of other titles from the Cannes Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, and more!
It’s been an incredible 2017 already for Tactical Girls, and as if the film festival wins and HUGE viewership on Amazon Prime wasn’t enough, Melissa D’Agostino has won a 2017 Best Actress Canadian Screen Award for her incredible performance as Dougy!
“Who so ever asks me of my birth… I will tell them I am born of Irish Princes who ruled in Donegal a thousand years ago; that I am descended from the High Kings of Ireland, and my name is from the Clann ÓDochartaigh!”
My new comedy mini-series, “Tactical Girls” just wrapped secondary photography, and we’re closing in on our post-production goals. It’s wacky, it’s mad-cap, it’s hilariously crass and violent. If the three stooges were women who couldn’t stop swearing or breaking things, you’d have the Tactical Girls:
*2017 UPDATE: Six Day Road has a new life as a feature film, and it will be making some exciting moves very soon… so stay, tuned, and enjoy this sneak peek at this post-apocalyptic western drama.
“When two sworn enemies awaken in the snowy wreckage of an avalanche, their only hope for survival lies in reconciling their differences.”
This is a single episode of a 9-part Post-Apoclayptic Western series that plays in the same univierse as Six Reasons Why. I made it with some very talented folks: Melissa D’Agostino, Caden Douglas and Marco Timpano.
“Hugh Jackman is Wolverine is Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe is Gladiator is Javert in the action-movie version of “The Confrontation” from the musical “Les Miserables”!”
When I heard the casting for the Les Mis film, I couldn’t help but imagine these two in a battle… and so this happened when Melissa D’Agostino and Adam Lazarus helped me bring it into the real world for everyone to see!
WINNER Best Sci-Fi Dragon Con Film Fest 2012, Official Selection After Dark Film Fest 2012!
“When Brian’s graduate thesis on Time Travel costs him the love of his life, he forces himself to choose the best way to live out the rest of his days.”
We had some stiff competition at DragonCon, but DNE came out on top in the SciFi category! Congrats go to my awesome team including Rudy Jahchan and Nar Williams, Michele White and Richard Hatch, with Bear McCreary doing the music and Kevin Grazier producing!
Here’s a spot of coverage we got while I was down in Atlanta for the con:
Sometimes I get political. In the spring of 2012, investigations revealed that Kellogg was using GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) in some of the ‘natural’ products they sell under the brand name of Kashi.*
To be clear, I have nothing against G.M.O.’s themselves; I DO have something against trashy ethics in advertising.
And since the FDA does not regulate the word ‘natural’ in the way it does the word ‘organic’, Kellogg’s claim of Kashi being ‘natural’ is not illegal.
And a “Yes” vote on Prop 37 would make this more than unethical, it would make it illegal.
