Two 4 One has received another grant! We’re getting closer to our maximum budget goal of $250,000 with the recent announcement that Maureen and Two 4 One are the 2013 recipients of the Jim Murphy Filmmakers Bursary. I’m touched and honoured by this award. So far, Two 4 One has confirmed funding from Telefilm Canada, Technicolor and the Jim Murphy Bursary. We are also participating in the NSI’s Features First Program until the fall of 2013.

Read about it on the NSI Website and Playback magazine.

A very special thanks goes out to Jim’s friends and colleagues who created the fund in his name.

Here’s a photo of Jim Murphy, (1947-2007).


Our Indiegogo campaign launches June 15th! Stay tuned.


Thanks to everyone who contributed to the ‘Til Death Indiegogo campaign. The Goal has been reached with a week to spare! ‘Til Death was just submitted to TIFF and, with your generous support, will be sent to many more A-list festivals.



Two 4 One, my first feature as writer/director, is being funded by the inaugural Telefim Micro-budget Program. Shooting in Victoria, BC. Shooting dates TBD.

Find out who else was funded here!


For the last three years, the UVic Writing Department offers an innovative class for screenwriters. Everyone takes part in the production of one student or alumni written short. It’s a fantastic educational experience. This year’s production, ‘Til Death, is written by UVic alum, Ryan Bright,  directed by UVic Grad Student, Connor Gaston, and Exec Produced by yours truly. We’re so proud of this production that we feel it needs to travel to film festivals. This Indiegogo campaign will help with the sound mix, visual effects, general polish and festival distribution plan. Please help if you can. Even a dollar will do! Watch the trailer and see how fantastic these young actors are. They deserve exposure! Watch the behind the scenes doc below.



I’m thrilled to announce that my feature, Two 4 One, has been selected for NSI Features First 2013!
