Filming No Pets Allowed has been a super fun,if not an exhausting ride.Working with such talented,cool people has been absolutely amazing.A true honor and pleasure.I can't thank them enough for giving me their time and energy in this film.They ROCK!
Here's the Promote Horror link about my film too.
Here's a bit about who's in my horror short or who is involved somehow.
Samantha play Rebecca, the lead female actor.Here's a bit about her if you actually don't know who this wonderful person is.She's a smart,sharp witted person who is an absolute gem to work with...Here's what her website says....
" "I've been raising eyebrows since 1983.
I'm not what you'd expect from the girl next door.
I'm a black sheep, a rebel... and proud of it!
I didn't get anywhere being good little girl
worrying about my reputation now did I?!?"
Samantha Mack is known as one of Vancouver’s finest entertainers, internet sensations, radio personalities, philanthropists, emcees, spokes models and of course living close to Whistler BC the queen of the snowboard!! You can find Samantha at all of the biggest, bestest, and brightest events that BC has to offer!!
7 years ago Samantha moved to Vancouver and quickly went from Lifeguard to Showgirl. She's traveled all over western Canada and placed 4th in Miss Nude BC 2009. Her dynamic shows quickly took her out of the strip clubs and into theatres, Night Clubs, Gay Bars, Private Events, Dinner Theatres, Fetish Clubs, Conventions and Expos. Her largest audience was for Aprox 5000 people where she performed a Jekyl and Hyde theme show with a shadow wall, a trapeze style bondage show and fire.
Soon after taking to the stage, she found herself holding the microphone. Her quick wit and pure sass had audiences loving everything that came out of her mouth.
You can frequently hear her on CiTR Radio and see her featured on The Ryan Steele Show, Josh Rimer's Comedy videos, OutTV episodes and various Music Videos. If you’re looking for her, you can spot her at the Taboo Sex Expo in Vancouver and the Naughty But Nice Show in the Fraser Valley, the Tattoo convention, singing at the Rinestone Stiletto Show, dancing, and breathing fire at the Exotic Circus, Hosting parties at Winter Pride and the World Ski and Snowboard Festival in Whistler, hosting, performing and DJing at Kitty Nights Burlesque, The Penthouse Grand RE Opening, and making jokes with Patrick Maliha on the XXX Comedy Show, and Co-hosting the first ever Adult Virtual Entertainment Award Show!! She's also one of the cordinators of the 3rd annual GwarBQ, Dancers 4 Cancer and The Canadian Adult Entertainment Awards.
She is one of the biggest and most dynamic personalities that you will see and not one to be missed!!
A dream is suppose to be impractical.
A practical dream is oxymoron.
Paul plays himself.He's my leading male actor.He's the lead singer,guitarist and songwriter of Vancouver punk band The Fight United.Paul has previous acting experience in film and television.He was also in a Burger King campaign called Coq Roq.He's also an artist and has a really strong presence as an actor,but in real life is a total sweetheart.
Kenny Homeless is the bass guitarist,songwriter and vocals for The Fight United.Kenny plays himself with a small speaking role.Another talented person to work with.
Johnny Change is guitarist,songwriter and back up vocals for The Fight United.Sweet quiet guy.
Yoko is the drummer,songwriter and vocals for The Fight United.Watching him play drums is damn awesome.He was also in the Burger King campaign with Paul.He rocks,just like Animal.
Burns The Dragon
Burns plays an extremely vital role in my film.He was a pleasure to work with and his funny sense of humor will not be forgotten.His website reads,
" Burns The Dragon is THE shock artist in Vancouver. From juggling balls of fire lit with gasoline to doing ungodly feats to his face, this is not a show to miss. Whether he’s performing with Burns One Down Productions, Bloody Betty or at your private event, every second will leave you mesmerized "
Lanny C. Brown
Lanny,like Burns,has a vital role.He actually is a favorite of mine in the film.Lanny works with Burns as a make-up artist for Burn One Down Productions,his make-up is super rad!.He's a very fun,hilarious person to work with.
Siobhan is a multi talented person.She has a small speaking role in the film.She was the stage assistant for Miss.Gory Rae's horror nights at the Rio Theatre.She also played "Marie Soleil" in my other horror short.I am pleased to be working with such an awesome person again.
Nyka "Tadpole" L'Esperance
Tadpole will be playing the younger version of Samantha's character,Rebecca.She is no stranger to acting.She is the zombie killer in my first short and a victim in my second one.She has assisted me in all my movies as either boom microphone or photographer.She rocks at skateboarding too.
Deb is the owner/head sculptor/FX designer at Graffenstyne Design's.She is also part of the Blue Girl Productions team.She has done make-up for film,television and music video's.Deb has been a part of the infamous Bloody Betty troupe for 2 1/2 years now.With 15 years experience under her belt she is also one kick-ass tattoo artist.All but one of my tattoos are from her.
James will be doing the background music and effects for the film and he was a beer drinking extra.He's the genius behind DarKsLide.He did the music for Maya's Journal and it will be so cool to work with him again.
Dza Crakk (Dan)
Dan will be doing the poster art for the film.He is a tattoo artist at Sink The Ink owned by Bryn Mackworth and is ridiculously talented.I'm stoked he's doing the art.He also has a small non speaking role.
And let's not forget my lovely extras...
From left to right
Sarah,Lora,Colin,Jenocyde and Jonny Bones
I love you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart.Stay awesome!!

7 days ago today my good friend Caleb passed away.It was a bittersweet weekend as I had just arrived in the Okanagan with my cast and crew for filming when I got the phone call nobody wants.As much as I wanted to give up and go back to Vancouver,I found the strength to carry on.Caleb would have bitched at me if I didn't continue.He was a great supporter of what I was doing.He was an amazing person beyond words and most of all a loving single Dad to 2 little girls,who now unfortunately are pretty much orphans.It was just 2 weeks ago we were having a blast together at Playdome with the kids going on rides.My camera battery died and I didn't get the hilarious pictures that ensued of Caleb going on some rides.Many thanks to Caleb's bestest friend in the world,Helen, the girls will be housed and cared for by her.She has been there all their lives and is pretty much a Mother to them anyway.There will be a memorial show on May 6th for Caleb at Funky Winkerbeans with The Fight United..(YES the ones in my film) and the Dayglo Abortions.I got word tonight that The Fight United will donate a portion of t-shirt sales to help raise Caleb's little girls..How fucking wicked is that?They kick ass! NO PETS ALLOWED will be in his honour,I posted the links to the website that is dedicated to donating to help Caleb's daughters' guardian raise them and the show link!I'm behind this 100%! I love you Caleb!!Rest In Peace...(with Slayer playing in the background of course)
|Caleb and Sapphire..BEST DAD EVER!!|
