I just finished directing the film Freddy at my alma mater Vancouver Film School. The story is about the last fish on earth and the characters who get the chance to eat it. A comedic and quirky film which makes one think about consumption and greed. VFS produces two 30 minute films each term, giving their graduating students on set experience and a chance to showcase all they’ve learned. Vancouver Film School is a world leader when it comes to film education programs and is equipped with a full studio to shoot in. I had a blast working with the actors and look forward to film’s screening, at the VanCity Theatre December 13, 2108. On set channeling Harry Potter by turning my pencil into a magic wand that wards off the passing of time, making sure we get our shots!
Believe it or not this happens every single week: In the middle of conversation the person I'm speaking with will pause, smile, cock their head and say "where are you from?". Even though I have lived here for many years people never think I'm from Vancouver.
