New film “Overcover” and more!

I made a new short film and just released it last month! Overcover is a buddy-cop, action-comedy film, following two undercover officers during an operation that doesn’t quite go as planned…because SOMEONE over-acted their role. Clocks in at 7 minutes with credits (including a scene after said credits). Check it out here!

Shot over the span of a day last summer and screened at the Reelworld Film Festival at the end of October (with a really enthusiastic response from the audience), Overcover was my most ambitious short film yet. I’ve never made a film with this amount of people involved in front and behind the camera, never put this much time in making a film and couldn’t have done it without the amazing team we put together. It’s got choreographed fights, visual effects, original music, was shot on an Arri Alexa and we got an amazing location! Check out the film’s page for a full list of credits if you’re curious!

My updates are infrequent, so as per usual, I’ll stick to some highlights! I’m really happy with my growth as an actor (and human being) lately and excited to keep that going; taking more classes than ever and recently completed Second City‘s Improv for Actors program. I’ve also had opportunities to audition for some exciting projects and booked a part on Handmaid’s Tale!

Speaking of acting parts, I’ve landed roles in a few independent projects as well. One of which I’ve received a few stills from, with permission to share. See below!

Commercial work has been coming in as well, so you may have caught me on TV or online in one of those. That, and maybe a few more book covers? I had the chance to work on several more. Always a good time!

Finally, if you’re in the industry, you may be familiar with the prestigious Canadian Film Center (CFC). I ended up working with them as an actor to create a teaser/pitch for one of their writer’s concept. Watch it here!

Until next time, feel free to keep an eye on my social media accounts for announcements and such!
