The B-Movie Odyssey

As you may know, I was the AD on the feature film The Last Video Store in the summer with the House of Heathens. It was a brief and intense shooting schedule and a lot of fun falling into the imaginative storyworld created by Tim Rutherford, Cody Kennedy and Kevin Martin.

The team is currently competing for $10K for a production grant in the STORYHIVE contest with STRAIGHT TO VIDEO: The B-Movie Odyssey. Think Quantum Leap in the world of Genre films! Our hero, Kevin Martin, will use his knowledge of the films to save the day... or at least himself! 

What excites me about STRAIGHT TO VIDEO is all the possibilities - the team will be showcasing guest writers and directors and be utilizing local talent to pull off homages to the Slasher Flick, Blaxploitation, 90's Action, Sci-Fi Extravagance... the list goes on. This could be an exciting opportunity for genre lovers in Edmonton to come together and collaborate and that makes me very happy!
