I Have Seen The FutureThis Bravofact commissioned short was winner of best animated short at the Los Angeles Film Festival 2008, screened at Sundance 2008, Toronto International Festival, was short listed for a 2009 Academy Award, and won Best Video at the 2008 Western Canadian Music Awards. Song by Kris Demeanor, animated by Cam Christiansen. Based on the true story of a father/son tennis match rudely interrupted by three glue sniffing youths.
Extreme to MeThis 2001 video was realized by Calgary's Road Pictures (Sandi Somers and Nicole Mion). They flung me around on a dolly, got a large office building (SMED) to let us run amok for two days, tipping tables and taping stuff to them, making out in the bathroom stalls, and they secured a very large bus from a grumpy farmer and drove it in Chinatown. Take that 'Extreme' Pita, 'Extreme' Scuba, 'Extreme' Discount Haircut!
