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!
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:
*2014 UPDATE: Fallout Asylum has been retitled to “Mutant World”; that sounds more like a movie on the SyFy channel, right?
We go to lens on Fallout Asylum on Thursday, and I’ve spent the past week on location in Calgary with Nomadic Pictures, hard at work getting to a shooting script for the SyFy network.
With the reality setting in of which actor is playing which role, when they’re available and what locations we’ll have, it’s been a great process of collaborating with all the departments to be sure we’re making just the right movie for just the right tone and excitement on-screen at just the right price.
On this project so far I’ve had the chance to work along side folks from the props department on “Chronicles of Riddick”, as well as a bunch of folks who worked on Nolan’s new film, “Interstellar”, and at least two people who have worked on Power Rangers movies. Say what you will about Judi Dench acting in a Vin Diesel movie, this crew is pretty top-notch.
Keep your eyes here; there’s more to come about Fallout Asylum!
WINNER Silver Dragon at 2013’s DragonCon Film Festival and Official Selection at LabCab Fest 2013!
“With Marvel showing up DC at the box office, Man of Steel better make lots of money if the other members of the Justice League stand a chance of having their shot on the big screen – and the entire JLA has come out to lament the dismal future of their careers.”
A fun music video I directed that has screened and won at some exciting festivals around the world, we poke fun at Warner Brothers for dropping the ball on some of the most iconic characters in comics, all to the tune of the Crash Test Dummies’ “Superman’s Song”.
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.”

Here’s a spot of coverage we got while I was down in Atlanta for the con:
