Bollywood North Premiere Night

Plasma Films held their public premiere of Bollywood North last night. In this short film, I play the role of the Thug. This event, with red carpet and all, was held at the The New Jaz’oo Cafe Villa on Sparks Street in Ottawa. The owners of this place are also Executive Producers of the film.

It started off with Graham Murray (the Director) giving a speech, preparing the audience for the film and a revealing statement about his work in the pornographic industry (may have been a joke). All kidding aside, he talked about the nature of Bollywood movies and how Bollywood North was a satire of the genre, Canadian style. 

The movie was played with a great reaction from the crowd. Lots of laughs were heard, including mine (the part where I get headbutted to the chest, Zidane style, always gets me). After the end of the film, the Producers Tiffany Murray and Philippe Paquette went up to talk and answer questions. Later they invited me up there and I responded a couple of questions as well. Graham also joined us to help out.

All in all, it was a great night due to the company of good friends and catching up with the people I worked with during the production of the film.

I booked a job which consisted of pretending to be a Telus employee at the opening of their new building in downtown Ottawa. At the party, they had their very own cover band playing (The Webtones, comprised of Telus employees) and wanted to shoot a music video for them. So the plan was for us to mingle with the others. When the music started, we had to start dancing and hype up the crowd to make for a good video. It was lots of fun and it worked out pretty good!

Last night Pascal Aka premiered “Jamie and Eddie: Souls of Strife”. It was a great time and a very successful event with well over 300 people in attendance (400 or so capacity).

 We all finally got to see the finished product. A lot was cut out and the film was still a feature length movie spanning over an hour. Pascal Aka’s work was very impressive especially for this being his first film! Many were left impressed and a good time was had by all.  People seemed to enjoy my character “Spookie”!

At the beginning of December I attended my agency’s party. Met some new people, talked to some familiar faces and had a great time.

Shooting for “6 for 7” continued and is going well.

I booked and shot a commercial for Vonage Canada mid December and had a great time on set! Watch for the guy with the binoculars on TV and on the Internet.

I also landed the lead in a local project called “Nothing Left To Say”. In January, the student film “Inescapable ” and shot in Cardinal, Ontario. That went well too.

I also did a music video for a local band called No Other way. The song is called “Hollywood Horror Show” and I played a show host. Had a great time with the character!

Also, shot another fight scene for “Souls Of Strife” which was a lot of run to rehearse!

Shooting for “Peace for Middle East” also continued.

Finally I joined an Improv group in Ottawa for practice and fun! Resume and pictures sections have been updated once again.

Just at the end of September, I signed up for the Ottawa University 24hour Theater Project (being a non-student, an exception was made for me to participate – thanks Ross and Jeremy). As a team, we had 24 hours to write and perform an original play. I was one of the actors and had a great time. The crowd loved it!

In October, we did voiceovers for Bollywood North.

I also had a photoshoot with Laurel Breidon in Montreal. I plan to have those pictures up soon enough.

Shooting of Pascal’s movie “Souls Of Strife” continued and Michel from RAMM Entertainment offered a lead role for a feature length film called “6 for 7” based on my performance in his latest short “Silent Touch”. I accepted and we’ve already started shooting. Pictures of the production are already up!

I was also offered a role in Jamal’s “Peace for Middle East” and I’ve done a scene so far.

In November, I auditioned and received a role for a student film called “Inescapable”.

Finally I booked a new commercial! This one’s for Sirius Satellite Radio. I got both the English and French roles and it’s already been shot and completed. This is an Internet only video so you can just follow the link in the work section to see it! Both resume and pictures sections have been updated with the changes.

Lots have been going on since June. Did a fashion show for Joelle Proulx. This was a first for me and was surprisingly a lot of fun! The show itself was very casual and relaxed – smiling was encouraged.

Got a print campaign with International Clothiers.

Also got representation with an agency in Montreal called Folio which will work with Angie’s to get me work there.

Finished shooting Bollywood North which was a great overall experience and a lot of fun. Can’t wait to see the finished product!

I also went to Vancouver for about a week and met a lot of people and had a good time.

The first issue of BOOBi magazine is out. You can find me on page 58 or just check out a scanned image of it in the work section of my website. Their release party was awesome.

I also booked another print. This one was for Magazines Canada. When the ads come out, look for the back of me, reading a magazine while facing a recently washed car.

I also booked a job for “Beyond the Sea”. It’s for a condo ad/video in Toronto.

Finally I have a charity fashion show going on at the Casino Lac Leamy in Hull on Saturday.

Summer’s here already and things have been going well. Breathe was shot and is in the editing process.

I also got an editorial in an upcoming magazine called Bobbi by the same people who own UMM. You should be able to find me in their first issue that should be out in August.

I did a photoshoot with Mark Cooper for my new cards. Some of those pictures have been added in the images section.

I auditioned for a local film called “Agent Double Double vs. Le Séparateur”. They offered me the role of the head arms dealer.

Paulo (friend within the agency) and I landed roles in a Lavalife TV commercial and I believe it’ll be aired in the UK and North America.

Our agency had its yearly showcase which went very well. I had a great time.

We started shooting Bollywood North and things are going very well. Still rehearsing for the fights and remaining scenes.

Other than that, I’ve been traveling to Toronto a lot… mostly for Auditions. I went to Montreal for a few as well.

Finally the production of mon6ths has been canceled (at least for now).  Resume and pictures section have been updated.

Saturday October 15th, 2005 at Famous Players Silvercity, between 10:30 and 12:00, Louis-Philippe Baraby will be premiering two of his movies (one of which I play a supporting role): Sanity and If Dates Could Kill. Let me know if you’re interested. Number of tickets are limited so the earlier the better.
