Blush Responsibly

One of the silver linings in regards to this whole sucker-punch incident is the fact that I wrapped principal photography for BLUSH RESPONSE less than 24 hours before the stupidity ensued. Blush Response, starring myself & Cheryl Hann, is a NSCAD Thesis film written & directed by Ian Burns.

Fun fact: Ian Burns also has an awesome t-shirt design that Threadless.com purchased from him, check it oot…

…Moving on.

I was really excited to be cast in this short because (1) it had a really strong script, (2) it was unlike anything else that I’ve ever played before, and (3) NSCAD has been producing some really strong Thesis Films as of late; that’s not taking anything away from you NSCC or Centre for Arts & Tech, I love you all equally.

The film depicts two lost souls – May (Ms. Hann), a talented artist, and Mark (that’s me), an ambitious business man – who are unexpectedly stranded together when their train out of town is delayed. Since it is a short film, I shall refrain from telling you any more.

The film will have a screening in Halifax in April. More details will follow.

We shot for 6 straight days, which was refreshingly exhausting (I meant what I said). Click below to view a selection of photos from the shoot (taken by Jessica Golding)…

With MOBY DICK, RIGHTEOUS, & BLUSH RESPONSE behind me and with HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN on the horizon, this is looking like it’s going to be a really fun year!
