After it’s lengthy festival run, Josh MacDonald‘s GAME is now available online for your twisted enjoyment!

The ever so lovely folks over at FearNet.com have decided to feature the short film on their website, and they’ve also gone to the trouble of adding a nice little introduction from Mr. MacDonald himself.

Head over to http://www.fearnet.com/shorts/game to watch!

The short features myself, Andrea Lee Norwood (the lead actress from BUNKER 6, which will play this year’s AFF), Pasha Ebrahimi, and Michael McPhee. Hope you enjoy it, you sick bastard.

NEWS ROUNDUP


There you have it! Here (above) is the first still frame of myself as Gabe in Josh MacDonald‘s directorial debut, GAME, playing Saturday, September 15th as part of Atlantic Shorts 3! More screening info here.

Earlier this week, myself and Vanessa Walton-Bone, star of my short film ROOM SERVICE (playing the Atlantic Film Fest on the 18th), headed into the Haligonia studio to talk about our film…

Be sure to keep up to date with ROOM SERVICE on Facebook and Twitter as we should have some festival news to announce in the coming weeks.

Finally, The Atlantic Fringe Festival is currently upon us! I designed the poster for my dear friend, Kristin Slaney‘s BLUE MOONS & WAITING ROOMS (see below).

As of today, you still have four more opportunities to see the play and I highly, highly recommend that you do so.

One more bit of Fringe Fest fun: I’m performing as part of 7 DEADLY SINS: FROMMERS GUIDE TO HELL, written by Thom Fitzgerald. It’s an immersive, sight-specific theatre experiment where audience members encounter all of the seven sins, one by one. Tell ’em Greed sent ye’.

Click here for full Fringe schedule / info.

That’s all for now. My apologies for throwing a whole slew of info at you in one post, but this twenty minutes I’m taking to write this is just about the only “down time” I’ve had since returning to Halifax. I am blissfully exhausted. Onward!

“ROOM SERVICE” IN THE AFF!


Today, I am so damn proud to announce that ROOM SERVICE, my first film as a writer and director, has been accepted to the 32nd Annual Atlantic Film Festival!

The film tells the story of a woman (Vanessa Walton Bone) confronting her husband’s mistress (Molly Dunsworth) in a motel room with unexpected results.

From day one, this was my goal, to play the AFF and show this film to the community my community in Halifax.

ROOM SERVICE will be playing Tuesday, September 18th, 7:00pm at Park Lane Cinemas as part of the CBC Atlantic Shorts Gala. Tickets available here: http://atlantic.bside.com/2012/films/cbcatlanticshortsgala0_atlantic2012_atlantic2012 The festival runs from September 13th to the 20th in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

In the best interests of staying in “the know”, the official ROOM SERVICE Facebook page has been launched @ facebook.com/RoomServiceFilm so give us a Like there and a Follow @RoomServiceFilm on Twitter!

                              

Again, a huge thank you to the official Thank You Club of folks who either donated funds, or helped us in any, many other ways. Your names will be in the credits. Pinky swear.

Also thank you to Samantha Wilson, Mauralea Austin, my crew Andrew Hicks, Ian Burns, Liam Higgins, Maria DeRozari, Lauren Bell and Egg Films who are currently assisting us in giving our film the final polish it needs to play this and many other fests.

If you see me in the next few weeks, there’s a big likelihood that I’ll have a huge, dumb grin plastered on my face.

ALSO: Josh MacDonald‘s GAME (GameShortFilm.com), which I have a part in, will be playing as part of Atlantic Shorts 3 on Saturday, September 15th at 9:20pm.

So honoured to be a part of this, hope to see you at the fest!

PAST "GAME" BLOG-ENTRIES:

JOSH MACDONALD’S “GAME”

I don’t know when I’m not happy to announce my involvement in a project, but today I am ecstatic to tell you that I’m on board for Josh MacDonald‘s (screenwriter of THE CORRIDOR) directorial debut short film, GAME.

Set to shoot this weekend, I’ll be joining the supremely talented cast which includes Andrea Lee Norwood, Pasha Ebrahimi (HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN), and Michael McPhee (my co-star and the creator of LOGAN AND I).

At the time being, details that I can share are slim. For now, please check out the gorgeous new poster from James White AKA Signalnoise (creator of such film-related graphic gems as the HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN logo, as well as the TREEVENGE logo)…

Head on over to Signalnoise.com to see the poster in all it’s glory.

Josh has an absolutely brilliant mind when it comes to storytelling, and I’m more than honoured to be joining him on his first adventure into directing (first of many to come, guaranteed). More to come.
