The Calgary Film Commission came by our set in the old planetarium to ask me, Lazlo Uhrik(Mocations Manager) and Roger LeBlanc(“Rogan”) some questions in between takes, so go Behind-The-Scenes of “Mutant World” and find out why we chose to shoot Calgary Alberta as a post-apocalyptic wasteland!
Making a movie is my favourite thing to do. But sharing what goes on behind-the-scenes comes in a close second! Have a look at episodes one and two of this on-going series of B-T-S special featurettes!

After nearly a week of principal photography on the new film I’ve written for the SyFy channel, I’m happy to report that we’re making something friggin’ awesome.
So far, we’ve shot with an incredible cast including Spun Out’s Holly Deveaux and Heartland’s Amber Marshall, plus Jason Cermak, Lara Zaluski, Roger LeBlanc, Graham Littlefield and Megan Tracz as our heroes, getting into all kinds of nasty trouble at the end of the world. And some of them even live through it.
It’s been a pretty wild time, with weather giving us the gift of gorgeous snowfalls, and making us pay the price by having to shoot in -15 degrees. You can’t even pay for that kind of production value! Well, I guess James Cameron can…
Between doing some on-the-fly re-writes, running a camera, animating graphics, and supervising visual effects, I’ve actually had some time to do a bit of directing, if you believe it! And working with huge talents like the extraordinary DP Neil Cervin, and David Winning (he directed the Power Rangers sequel), it really is a dream team to have on board to bring this screenplay to life!
As of right now, IMDb is telling us that there’s a September 2014 release… so keep watching here, and keep your eyes peeled on Twitter for the #FalloutAsylum hashtag for updates from all of us!
We go to lens on Fallout Asylum on Thursday, and I’ve spent the past week on location in Calgary with Nomadic Pictures, hard at work getting to a shooting script for the SyFy network.
With the reality setting in of which actor is playing which role, when they’re available and what locations we’ll have, it’s been a great process of collaborating with all the departments to be sure we’re making just the right movie for just the right tone and excitement on-screen at just the right price.
On this project so far I’ve had the chance to work along side folks from the props department on “Chronicles of Riddick”, as well as a bunch of folks who worked on Nolan’s new film, “Interstellar”, and at least two people who have worked on Power Rangers movies. Say what you will about Judi Dench acting in a Vin Diesel movie, this crew is pretty top-notch.
Keep your eyes here; there’s more to come about Fallout Asylum!
“When two sworn enemies awaken in the snowy wreckage of an avalanche, their only hope for survival lies in reconciling their differences.”
This is a single episode of a 9-part Post-Apoclayptic Western series that plays in the same univierse as Six Reasons Why. I made it with some very talented folks: Melissa D’Agostino, Caden Douglas and Marco Timpano.
I hope you dig it!

In 2013, Ferrero released a commercial announcing a new version of its popular Kinder Surprise toys… just for girls. This is how it looked to me.
WINNER Silver Dragon at 2013’s DragonCon Film Festival and Official Selection at LabCab Fest 2013!
“With Marvel showing up DC at the box office, Man of Steel better make lots of money if the other members of the Justice League stand a chance of having their shot on the big screen – and the entire JLA has come out to lament the dismal future of their careers.”
A fun music video I directed that has screened and won at some exciting festivals around the world, we poke fun at Warner Brothers for dropping the ball on some of the most iconic characters in comics, all to the tune of the Crash Test Dummies’ “Superman’s Song”.
I hope you dig it!
“Hugh Jackman is Wolverine is Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe is Gladiator is Javert in the action-movie version of “The Confrontation” from the musical “Les Miserables”!”
When I heard the casting for the Les Mis film, I couldn’t help but imagine these two in a battle… and so this happened when Melissa D’Agostino and Adam Lazarus helped me bring it into the real world for everyone to see!
How’d we do it? Here’s a peek:
Sometimes I get political. In the spring of 2012, investigations revealed that Kellogg was using GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) in some of the ‘natural’ products they sell under the brand name of Kashi.*
Since the FDA does not regulate the word ‘natural’ in the way it does the word ‘organic’, Kellogg’s claim of Kashi being ‘natural’ is not illegal.
And a “Yes” vote on Prop 37 would make this more than unethical, it would make it illegal.
