Over the years I have made a collection of videos. You will notice that often the videos fall into the Horror genre because I've always found that the most fun to do... also there are a lot of 48 hour Horror film competitions in Vancouver.
This is a demo reel of the projects I have worked on in the past few years. The people I collaborate with are a small group and we often wear many hats on a production. Of the material contained in the demo, I played one or more of the following roles: Director, Producer, Writer, Editor, 1st Assistant Director, Post Production Supervisor.

Back in 2005 (or was it 2006?) a fellow film school classmate, Gary Lachance, knew this band, Horse The Band. One weekend we (Gary, Mark, Smitty and I) drove down to Seattle, where the band was recording, and filmed this video. We kind of just came up with the idea, with the Band, while we were there and filmed when we could between the band's recording sessions.
As far as roles on the project, Gary was pretty much the connection with the Band, and also the mastermind behind it all. We all contributed creatively and technically during the shoot, but he made it all happen. I did most of the "Visual Effects" if you can call them that...
