I was invited to celebrate National Canada Film Day for the red carpet premiere of Lovesick. Many of the cast members were there, along with the fabulous crew. I had no idea how immense the gala was! Seeing everyone dressed up, seeing photographers, news crew and bloggers document the event was like being at the Oscars. If I never attend an award show as a nominee or presenter, this’ll be the closest I get to it. There’s a video by Telefilm Canada doing a life feed of Kyle Irving and Tyson Caron talking about the film before bringing out the talent. Although I had a minor role, I was able to walk onstage with the main actors (having breezed in still wearing my coat still). I hope that my next independent/Hollywood film gets the same treatment as this. ‘Twas quite a rush!
I would’ve loved to have posted photos of myself with Sir Ben Kingsley & Henry Cavill, but they were already off to their trailers. I shook SBK’s hand and he thanked me, but my brief moment is still there. The make up and hair people were delightful, the writer/director, David Raymond was a lovely person and the day was swift. Hopefully someday I’ll have a larger scene on screen with these actors or others when that day comes. Nomis is slated to premiere sometime next year.
I’ll say this about the two leads: I felt like I was in the presence of a king and Hercules. When I think about it, I was on set with Superman and Gandhi! They were both gentlemen.
I look forward to my speaking role in Nomis this month, working alongside Sir Ben Kingsley again (I shared a scene with him in 2007’s You Kill Me)! I’ll also be sharing a scene with both Sir Ben and Henry Cavill.
I’m anticipating the viewing of Tempus Tormentum:
- Article: Welcome to the insane world of tempus tormentum.
- Wicked Channel: Movie review of Tempus Tormentum.
- Podcast Garden:
- Interview: Search My Trash.
I’ve participated in a short film this weekend, with the talented Amanda Kindzierski again. It’s always a pleasure working with someone who’s got it together. The film, currently titled Ghost Hunters, was created as part of the Aboriginal Film Collective. The collective will have a screening around March 25th, but if I’m wrong, then at least in and around the next month. It’s too bad I didn’t take any photos or live video feed, but hopefully the actual film will speak for itself.
I also had the pleasure of working with Actor/comedian Ryan Ash again, since working with him on the 48 Hour Film Competition last year.
More info to come.
Tonight, I participated in the play-reading of June Harris‘s semi-autobiographical play, Jimmy and Inez. It was my first meeting with this local legend and my first time reading with Ernesto Griffith.
