It’s that time of year for the entertainment industry: AWARD SEASON! When a bunch of people tell a bunch of other people that they did some good work. Pretty much every industry has something like this, architects, salespeople, bankers… they all do it. It’s only the folks in entertainment who put it all over your TV since, well, they control your TV.
And it’s been a damned exciting season for Tactical Girls! With a film festival run well underway, our indie comedy series has already started racking up some accolades and taking home some hardware: Tactical Girls won “Best Tv/Web Series” at the prestigious Canada Independent Film Festival in Montreal!
On top of that, Tactical Girls won “Best Performance” Canadian Emmy Award at the Canadian Screen Awards for Melissa D’Agostino’s charming and alarming performance as Dougy!
And the very same week of the CSA award presentation, Tactical Girls also screened as official selection at the Seattle WebFest! What a month!!
You can watch the first season of Tactical Girls on Amazon Prime, and there’s lots of exciting news coming up, so keep your eyes here for updates!

Over the past two years, I’ve been writing one of the funniest, wackiest, most absurd scripts I’ve ever worked on, and I’ve been working on it with two incredible co-writers: Melissa D’Agostino & Diana Bentley.
And this summer, we’re finally putting this series on the screen.
Starring My Big Fat Greek Wedding‘s incomparable Maria Vacratsis, Orphan Black‘s hilarious Kristian Bruun, the spectacularly funny Ted Dykstra, and Nicole Stamp, along with the multi-talented Melissa D’Agostino and Diana Bentley, “Tactical Girls” is the story of three women who can’t stand the horrendous boss of the trucking company they work at, and so to vent their frustrations they go on tactical missions together.

My new comedy mini-series, “Tactical Girls” just wrapped secondary photography, and we’re closing in on our post-production goals. It’s wacky, it’s mad-cap, it’s hilariously crass and violent.

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.

“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.
