The Secret to Having Confidence as an Artist

      Whether you are an actress just starting out or a seasoned writer with 49 IMDB credits to your name, every artist struggles with confidence at one time or another. Sure, when you look through social media at all the success stories and not so humble-brags it can

Tips for a Successful Self-Taped Audition

  I treat auditions like I treated my first dates. It’s an opportunity to get to know a stranger and to learn from each other. Hugh Jackman Yes, auditions are hard. But they’re worth it.  You’ve decided to go for it, to audition for a part in a short film.

 

The best way to become an artist is to roll up your sleeves and start making stuff. Don’t talk about the script you are writing, write it. Don’t talk about how you want to be an actor, submit an audition tape.  Talk is cheap. Actions matter. Do something every day to work towards your goal.

Local shorts with an International Audience

All of the short films I write and direct feature local actors from Alberta and are produced with the help of crew members from the Edmonton region.

Many of the shorts found on this site have gone on to appear in film festivals both locally and abroad in  New York, LA, Las Vegas  and Europe with over 60 Official Selections and 18 Wins for Best Short Film, Best Romance and more. 

Some festival winning shorts have been distributed on Viddsee, Amazon, Sofy and other digital streaming platforms. 

My approach to each film is to keep the stories personal and the footprint size of the production small, focusing on character-driven dramas that are able to be produced in a 2 or 3 day span. This affords me the chance to direct multiple projects each year, and gives local actors many opportunities to star in a short film.

About Me


I am a screenwriter and director based out of Edmonton, Canada. Over the years I have written and directed a number of short films with talented actors from across Alberta. We have even been lucky enough to win at a few film festivals

I enjoy all aspects of filmmaking and the challenges that come along with low budget indie film. I direct between two and five short films each year, so if you are interested in getting involved, head on over to my castings page.

Star in a short film

Do you have stage or screen experience? Or perhaps you are new to acting and want to try out a smaller part? Either way, I’d love it if you check out some of my casting calls! 

With runtimes around 3 to 20 minutes, we normally shoot all of our scenes over a weekend or two, which means I get to direct quite a few short films over the course of a year.  I normally run with a small crew of 3 or 4 people, though each project is different.

I am constantly writing scripts and have plans for several new short films over the coming year. Head on over to my casting page to check out open roles!
