2019 BREAKING NEWS:
- [01 April 2019]: "GPS" is headed to the Fusion International Festival - South, in Valencia, Spain, for a European premiere.
And I'm going too, because I can...
- [26 January 2019]: "GPS" had it's world premiere screening at our own "local" Milton Film Festival.
Although I'm not from Milton, and only one of our crew members is there, all of the Barn 11 Productions shorts have premiered there, so we kind of feel like it's "our" festival.
- [01 January 2019]: Pre-production on a set that is entirely populated by chickens is not an easy thing.
Everything must be made to scale.
By all the gods, this is time-consuming, but we will get it done in 2019.
- [01 November 2018]: "GPS" is finally through post and being submitted to festivals around the globe.
- [01 June 2018]: Well, the film for "GPS" is in the can, and we are in post-producion.
Once a decent edit is done, we will record the leading lady's voiceover, and then do a final cut.
Should be ready for festival screenings by mid to late summer.
- [12 May 2018]: Principal shooting for "GPS" is today!!!
- [03 April 2018]: We finally have a CMPA co-producer for our short film, working title "GPS", which means we can move ahead with the ACTRA TiP application.
The Plan: Shoot in May.
I am so looking forward to this season.
- [15 March 2018]: I have been tentatively cast in the lead role of the short film "GPS".
Ok, being cast wasn't that big an issue, since I'm the writer and producer.
However, I don't want to act and direct in the same short, so I have passed off the Director's hat to Roben Goodfellow.
- [01 March 2018]: I have been cast as "Schuldahis, Chief of the Guards" in the feature film "1000: The Sword in the Stone".
An Italian/Canadian co-production, I am really looking forward to this.
A return to horseback roles...
- [01 February 2018]: The Milton Film Festival was great, and I spent two days there watching a plethora of films.
I was disappointed that this year, I didn't have an entry, but we'll fix that for next year.
- [01 January 2018]: So, not a lot of breaking news for the latter half of 2017.
We spent most of last year in pre-production on a number of short films.
This year, we film.
- [16 July 2017]: Woo hoo!!! Ross WON in his category at Madrid. Best Cinematography in a Short Film. A first award for Ross, for "Missy", and for Barn 11 Productions.
We are so proud.
- [24 June 2017]: "Missy" has been accepted into the Buffalo Niagara International Film Festival, in September 2017.
Finally, another festival we can actually get to by car...
- [24 May 2017]: "Missy" has not only been accepted into the International Filmmakers Festival in Madrid, Spain, but has picked up two nominations:
"Best Lead Actor in a Short Film"; and
"Best Cinematography in a Short Film" for Director of Photography, Ross Goodfellow.
That's only fair - now he and his wife each have one nomination for this film.
But she got hers first, Ross...
If all goes well, Stephanie and I will be attending the festival in Madrid! Hola Espana!
- [16 May 2017]: Yesterday, our short film, "Missy", was scheduled to screen at the International Filmmakers Festival in Nice, France, nominated in three categories:
"Best Short Film" for producer, Roben Goodfellow;
"Best Lead Actor in a Short Film"; and
"Best Original Screenplay of a Short Film".
We didn't pick up any of the awards, but I'm sure they went to good films, if I can judge from my previous experiences with this festival.
I would have liked to attend the screening in France, but Stephanie and I were busy on stage in Canada.
- [12 May 2017]: Opening night for "Calendar Girls" at the Dunnville Theatre, with a really appreciative (and loud) audience that made performing a thrill.
I am very much looking forward to all the dates this month.
Closing night is 27 May 2017.
- [19 February 2017]: Just back from the International Filmmakers Festival in London, England, where our short film "Not the End of the World" was selected as an entry, as well as being nominated in the "Best Short Comedy" category.
We didn't win our category, but I caught the screening of the film that did win, and it was fantastic.
- [12 February 2017]: Along with the Producer and Director, I managed to catch the screening of "First is the Worst" at the Canada Indepedent Film Festival in Montreal, PQ.
First time seeing a screening of this short on a truly big screen, I can honestly say that, even with my ego, I've never before seen my head that big.
- [29 January 2017]: I was lucky enough to catch something on each day of the Milton Film Festival, which, if I recall correctly, meant watching a total of five features and four shorts (out of a possible 8 and 5).
Our short film, "Missy", premiered on Saturday and was the first runner up for the KKP Audience Choice Award at the end of the weekend.
