My Fave Things: Straight To Video

The House of Heathens continue to put Edmonton on the map, now unleashing the stellar genre homage Straight to Video: A B-Movie Odyssey. 

You need to know these names: Tim Rutherford (director) Cody Kennedy (director) Darryl Merpaw (writer) Brandon Boucher (dop) Jesse Nash (lighting guru), Josh Lenner (actor) and Kevin Martin (actor). Raw-genius danger boys who have a mad love for the most awesome/terrible films known, unknown and yet to be created.

After successfully winning the last round of Telus Optik's STORYHIVE, the team took $50,000 and spun a Quantum Leap-esque web-series with brilliant moments of humour and perfectly executed Art Direction.

You'll notice some of our local heroes in the theatre and film scene as well as cameos of the lovely Tristan Risk (American Mary) and Adam Brooks, Conor Sweeney and Matthew Ward Kennedy from Astron 6. I seriously couldn't stop laughing. And you know what happens when you can't stop laughing?

So yeah, this is def on my list of my fave things of all time. Start your video odyssey here:
