Coming Soon

More than anything, this is an impetus to deliver the goods for the upcoming 7th Annual Calgary Filmmakers Challenge.

The challenge: to make a film adaptation of a work in the public domain, a teacher must appear as a character, there needs to be a shot of a pencil in a ceiling, as well as a sequence shown in reverse.

It's finished!

Heartman: a tale of mimes told in the style of Rodriguez's "Sin City". This was made for the 6th Annual Calgary Filmmakers Challenge and was completed Feb. 29, 2012. The criteria for this film was that it had to be based on a true story, needed a 'butt shot', a shot had to be upside down, and at least one character had to be a mime - so this is what I came up with.

The criteria for the 7th Annual Calgary Filmmakers Challenge was issued the same night.

I try to challenge myself to tell stories with no words, that way, once I tell a story with dialogue it will be inherently more visually interesting.
