Wow, too long since my last post – again! Things have been awesome and busy (or awesomely busy) here though… I was down in Atlanta for Dragoncon recently, and I had a blast meeting so many new people and selling off my “I <3 BOOBs" buttons for The BOOB Show. I went down with a LOT and came back with less than 10... so I was pretty happy about that. Speaking of the BOOB Show, it's going to be hosted solely on my own Youtube channel from here on in, and during TIFF I am re-releasing the episodes a few at a time. So, bounce on over to the playlist and watch your favourite episodes again. I am hoping to get my own Youtube partnership happening! There’s also going to be a few videos from Dragoncon, including a new BOOB Show episode as well as a fun dice living one… plus other goodies!
I also got to briefly chat with a few fine folk at Dragoncon – Wil Wheaton, Misha Collins, and of course the awesome Abney Park. Pee ess, the stills from Talio are up here, but here’s a teaser for now!
In other news, TIFF is happening in Toronto for the next few weeks. I had the pleasure of attending a couple of pre-parties last week, including the Dolby Surrounded panel at the Lightbox. I got to meet some great people there and at the Jetlagged party; it’s so exciting to see where current/future technology is taking us. For example, the work that goes into digitally remastering old classics… it’s incredible to see how they ease out every grain or hair or any tiny flaw in the older prints. The time they put in would blow your mind! Plus it was fun to see some Pixar trailers with new technology, including a more comprehensive surround sound setup. As an actor I think it’s SO important to recognize all the behind the scenes work that go in to making stellar end products and making those on screen look and sound their best.
This week, highlights for me include Festival Music House and VIP-ing it up at the Out There Hospitality Lounge. (I’ll be posting more detailed TIFF blogs later, so stay tuned for that!)
In project news, I was a on a MuchMusic PSA last week, and am headed back to London tomorrow for more Windchocombe. My mother called me the other day to say that my uncle had spotted me on TV on my episode of Instant Cash – I hear that’s getting a lot of airtime! I also just received word that Black Eve’s been finished… so that makes TWO films of mine that you can catch on the big screen in the near future.
Yes, two! The other film is Stiffs On The Green and it screens here in Toronto on October 8th. I would love to see you ALL out! It’s a very funny indie film, and the character I’m playing in it is so far removed from myself. I’m pretty stoked to see it and I hope you all will join me.
Last but not least… I have yet more blog posts coming for you guys this week. I am also taking part in Speak Out With Your Geek Out this week, so expect some shiny posts coming later about some of my various geeky passions.
That’s it for now!
