After a wild and amazing premiere at the Atlantic Film Festival in September, I was itching to secure the next screening for Presence!
As October approached, I received two bits of amazing and exciting news back-to-back. The first being that the wonderful people at the Silver Wave Film Festival accepted Presence to screen as part of their Midnight Madness horror night on November 8th 2013 at the Tilley Hall, UNB Campus in Fredericton, New Brunswick!
I have been dying to have the opportunity to attend the Silver Wave Film Festival since I missed out three years ago when they screened my short, The Withered Dead, and a torrential downpour kept me from making the four hour drive. I couldn’t be happier to get the email saying we were in, and I certainly can’t wait to hit up this wonderful festival and party with all those wonderful filmmakers!
The second email I received was completely out of the blue, and I could barely believe it! The Atlantic Film Festival partners with CBC every year to producer a series called “CBC Download“. It is a series in its fifth season focusing on Atlantic Canada films and the people behind them. The first episode of this season is set to air on October 26th just in time for Halloween, and I was offered a spot for Presence to be a part of it. Along with airing on CBC, it will also be available to watch on cbc.ca and iTunes.
I am so grateful to be getting so many opportunities to show Presence after having worked so long and hard on this film and having so many wonderful people help me make it a reality! Please check it out and show some love!
I am incredibly excited to get to be a part of such a renowned film festival; it has been a goal of mine for many years and I can’t believe it’s finally happening!
I am really excited by the representation Atlantic Canada has at this years festival and I am completely honoured to be included in that group with the likes of Jeff Wheaton, Kevin A. Fraser, Lisa Rose Snow, Jay Dahl, Martha Stiegman, Adam DeViller, among many others.

I just want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me this far to help make this film happen (especially my Producer in crime, Mr. Glen Matthews) and thank you to the Atlantic Film Festival for giving us a spot to showcase Presence!
I’m guessing most of you have heard of the wild and raucous horror anthology called The ABC’s Of Death. A 26-chapter anthology that showcases death in all its vicious wonder and brutal beauty.
You are also probably aware that the Dartmouth based genius, Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun) directed a segment called “Y Is For Youngbuck”
Well I’m mentioning this because we were lucky enough to get our hands on two full sized movie posters autographed by Jason himself!!
So if you would like to snag one of these fantastic posters then this is all you have to do, head on over to either:
The fine gentlemen at Background Noise have once invited me onto their wonderful show tomorrow.
We will be talking about a lot of interesting stuff, but most importantly we are going to be talking about the upcoming release for the new Orchid’s Curse music video ‘If We’re Divine’. That Devin totally kicked ass on as my D.O.P.
So give a listen, I will be bringing my A-game and we are gonna have a good time!
If you are anxiously awaiting to see this new music video then come on out on May 25th at Michael’s Bar and Grill for the video release party! I promise you good tunes and good times!
We made a kick ass new music video and want to share with the likes of all of you!
I was completely honored to be given the opportunity to helm the latest music video for the boys in Orchid’s Curse. They truly honed their craft on their latest album ‘Words’ which features some of the best written metal music I have heard in quite some time.
Now it was time to create a music video that hopefully lives up to this amazing music. We got an amazing crew together and filmed for two days in March (one of those was during a snow storm) then edited hundreds of hours of video from three cameras and with this we crafted an unique and hopefully brutal music video.
