In November Halifax lost one of it’s finest contributors to the film & television community, Matt Chisholm.
I’m going to do a terrible job of eulogizing him because he was a very good friend and it still sucks way too hard to think about the fact that he’s gone now, but (here we go) he was a writer, actor, crew-member and honest to god, one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. Seriously, so goddamn funny. Basically everyone in Halifax has a story (or five) about Matt’s kindness and generousity. I’m lucky to have known him. We all were.
I’ve worked with Matt a million times in my career, but I’m most proud of our work together on-screen in FOAM DRIVE RENEGADES, which Matt co-wrote alongside Adam Deviller.
This past summer, over the course of a few drinks, I told Matt that FOAM DRIVE is honestly one of the things I’m most proud of in my career, and I really mean that, I love it’s blend of absurd comedy and tension, and mostly, I loved acting with Matt. It really sucks to know that I’ll never share the screen with him again, but I am so thankful that I’ll always have FOAM DRIVE to remember those cold nights in Dartmouth we all spent making this damn thing.
If you didn’t know him, I’m sorry, give the flick a watch and hopefully that’ll help, but you missed out on knowing one helluva human being…
Love ya, brother.
