Alas! The time has come to welcome you all to view – – for the very first time, uncut, uninterrupted, and on the internet – – 2002’s MUGSHOTS. The very first film I’ve ever directed/edited/wrote/produced/distributed and it’s also 58 minutes long. So please be gentle.
MUGSHOTS (2002). Created by a group of friends in the South Shore of Nova Scotia, this part-documentary, part-experimental film is the end result of over a year of filming inspired by the likes of MTV’s Jackass, CKY, Tom Green, Pro Wrestling, and everything in between.
I have a whole-lotta love for this film. I believe that the elbow grease that went into creating this piece of VHS art laid the groundwork for a work ethic that I’ve adopted into acting, and other aspects of my life. This film, which is essentially an hour long d*ck & fart joke definitely portrays the mindset of myself and my friends almost a decade ago. D*cks & farts aside, this film is undoubtedly considered one of the great milestones of my adolescence. Please enjoy.
