It is a gosh-darn privilege to have my work return to Nova Scotian screens later this month as GRAVE CONCERNS plays FIN Atlantic International Film Festival.
Screenings (Shorts Program 3):
Saturday, Sept. 15, 3:30PM at Park Lane, Theatre 8
Tuesday, Sept. 18, 9:10PM at Park Lane, Theatre 2
The short, about two gravediggers (played by Tim Walker and Jeff Hanson) toiling away in the wild west, was originally shot as a web series proof-of-concept, but try as I might, I have thus far failed at getting the powers-that-be to fund this dark slapstick comedy beyond the pilot stage.
Be that as it may, I have far from given up on telling this story, so if you’re in Halifax for the festival, I cordially invite you to enjoy the first chapter.
