CANOEJACKED at TIFF 2012


As if one film in TIFF wasn't cool enough, how about one more?!

Jonathan William's CANOEJACKED premiere's September 13 at 6:15pm at TIFF Bell Lightbox 2 and screens again on the 14th in the morning at TIFF Bell Lightbox 3.

We spent a week in Georgian Bay shooting this comedy short, starring The Soprano's Al Sapienza, Falling Skies' Mpho Koaho and comedian Pat Thornton, along with a great stunt team!  With a cast of all men, the make-up needs weren't heavy.

FROST at TIFF 2012


Today marks the beginning of the Toronto International Film Festival and I have TWO films playing in it that you won't want to miss!  I'll devote a post to each and share my make-up process!

FROST, directed by the extremely talented Jeremy Ball, plays in Short Cuts Canada #4 on both Tuesday September 11 @ 6:30 PM and Wednesday September 12 @ 4:45 PM.  Rumour has it that the Tuesday is sold out, so rush line it or snag some tickets for Wednesday!

Frost was a particularly challenging film as we shot it entirely in studio and predominately on a green screen.  I was also dealing with almost zero regular make-up.  By that I mean there was no beauty make-up, it was entirely breakdown make-ups, tattooing and exposure effects.
