I’ll be doing a 5 minute documentary on local St. John’s drag queen, Irma Gerd!! We will be shooting her performance on Dec. 14th at Treble Lounge around 8pm so if you want to come join the audience you are more than welcome! It’s going to be super fun! 🙂

This is the first time Canada’s a Drag has come to Newfoundland and it will be nationwide!!!! Also, the season starts airing in January 2019 so stay tuned as I will post info about the time/date this episode will be on air!

The Nickel Film Festival’s School Tour

I recently went on a school tour sponsored by Reel Youth and The Nickel Independent Film Festival. We went to 4 different schools in central, western and norther Newfoundland to be film mentors for students making documentaries.

These films will be screened as part of the Nickel Film Festival in June so stay tuned for updates! I will be editing one (maybe two) depending on my schedule and if I can squeeze it in! Take a look at some of our behind-the-scenes photos. Some were taken by the students themselves!

I did an interview on Out of the Fog!!

Out of the Fog is a local tv show produced by Rogers TV and I was asked to be a guest on it last Tuesday!

I chatted with Jason Piercey about my documentary Flight of the Fisherman which has won 2 awards so far! Fun fact: when I moved home from Prague after graduating from film school I volunteered at Rogers doing their switch board and graphics!

The Smith Sound Film Festival “Audience Choice Award” goes to Flight of the Fisherman!!!

How cool is this?? Last Friday I won the Audience Choice Award for the Smith Sound Film Festival! In case anyone reading this isn’t aware this is my first documentary that I show without a crew (except for a translator). I was also the Director and Editor. This award is handmade and is constructed from local railroad spikes welded together along with a spinning film spool!! I love it!!!!
