I realize this is probably the worse possible day to announce this, since many of you will now doubt if it's true or not. Heck, one person in question might currently be wondering if this is some elaborate April Fool's prank on my part. Wouldn't that be funny? "Hey pal, let me toy with your dreams and aspirations for a bit."
Oh, but you guys are probably wondering what I'm even talking about.
A little while ago, I mentioned that I would be creating a feature-length documentary based on my summer Fringe tour, currently titled On the Fringe. We've been mad at work behind the scenes to get all this together. More announcements will be coming out in the following days, but in the meantime, I wanted to introduce you to the two crazy people coming along for the ride:
First up, there's Natalie Watson, my co-producer and an incredibly talented film editor who's a graduate of the British Columbia Institute of Technology Broadcasting Program. Natalie and I have been in pre-production for some time now and I am thrilled to have someone like her onboard.
Just check out her mad skillz with this Day in the Life project she did for her school and tell me you're not as excited as I am at the thought of this documentary.
Which brings me to the new guy on the team. Many of you might already know Cory Thibert as one of half of the fun and engaging May Can Theatre duo, but did you know he was also a talented filmmaker? His short films are currently getting rave reviews and making the rounds. Be sure to check out Stiff Quickies a fundraiser film festival for the Ottawa Fringe Festival and you'll know exactly what I mean. Cory is going to be directing the film as we travel across the country and I couldn't be happier. I also repeat, this is not a joke.
We're going to be making movie magic together. It's going to be an awesome summer.
