Embarrassingly, I haven't shot a proper feature length film since 2012. The good news is that since then I did piles of short films and a wildly popular animated series. But it is time once again for a new SC feature. I am now in the early stages of writing the script for this new movie, and I plan on shooting it this summer.. on weekends... for cheap. The traditional SC style. The film is called (at least for now) Imitative Magic. And isn't really like any film I have ever made. It follows the lives of 6 young people over the course of 5 days. They are all members of an internet message board / chat room for people in Calgary who are obsessed with the two Calgary paranormal investigators Beefart and Cheenkaw. The film isn't about Beefart and Cheenkaw though.. it's about these 6 people. Anyway, I've been working on it for a couple months now and I'm pretty excited about the whole thing. I will probably start up some sort of indiegogo campaign to raise money to help fund it.. but I think I will wait until the Calgary Entertainment Expo before I get that going. I will be looking for a bunch of actors for this one as well.. people who will be available on weekends this summer. I will get into all that later. Anyway, that's what I have been working on.
