Writer and Filmmaker

Hello. How are you? (Click Email to let me know).

I’m a writer and filmmaker based in Vancouver, BC. On my filmmaker side I make narrative films and music videos. On my writing side I’ve published short stories, essays, and book reviews. I’ve also written novels, feature screenplays, and film theory that are just sitting on my computer as of now but I’d like to publish them too one day. That would be so cool. I love writing.

I’m currently researching and developing a feature film with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.

You can read essays I’m writing as part of my research here.

I graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2018 with a BFA in film and literature. Since then I’ve been in VIFF’s Catalyst Program and had my work shown in festivals across the country and my writing published in magazines distributed all over North America.

This is really fun for me and I like doing it. I’m going to keep doing it. Thanks for reading. (Click Email to say you’re welcome).

Tim Clapp is a musician and founder of the Kingfisher Bluez indie record label. He is the self-professed Suge Knight of Jizz-Jazz. I’m pretty sure he’s listened to every song ever made. He also owns a book store on Gibsons and may have read every book ever written. He gave me a book when we shot this video and I read it in like a day and a half. His taste is impeccable. 

He sent me a soundcloud link to his album “Tim the Mute’s Fucky Sucky Free for All” and asked me to pick any song for this video. His music is unbound by pretension or artificiality. I picked this song because it got stuck in my head for a whole weekend. I love counting-songs.

This is my second addition to my music video series featuring heads in voids. I like to think the two characters in the song are enmeshed in such a passionate tumble in the hay that they bumped into a chandelier and were transported to a netherworld of pleasure for their nether-regions. I believe that’s keeping with the philosophy of the album. 

Kristin Witko features on the song and is also in the video. She was wonderful to work with and her own music is really powerful.
