I am stoked to announce that I am the director/producer of a new comedy webseries, Young & Reckless, which has been funded with the support of TELUS Optik Local.

Young & Reckless is a comedy web-series that follows slacker, Devon Young, who has found the woman of his dreams. But to win her heart, he’ll have to babysit her 13-year-old daughter from hell.

“Young & Reckless” is co-created/written by Andrea Shawcross, and stars co-creator, Devon Ferguson, and Sierra Pitkin (the audacious actor from my short “Trolls” the Movie)!

“Beat Around the Bush” the feature film

Over a year ago I was awarded the Harold Greenberg Fund’s Shorts-to-Features Award for “Beat Around the Bush” which included production financing for a short film (which is complete and being submitted to film festivals) and 1st draft development financing for a feature film.

Talk about awesome.

Yesterday, October 15, 2015, I handed in the completed first draft to Harold Greenberg Fund! I feel great about it! I look forward to next week when I decide it’s all wrong (it’s not, it’s awesome and will only get better) and then apply for 2nd draft financing. And then we wait.

Music videos “Shadowless” & “Movies” to screen in Vancouver Oct 28

IMG_0448On October 28th in Vancouver, BC, two of my music videos will be screening as part of the Film & Media Showcase by Women in Film & Television and in collaboration with DocBC and Cineworks.

These music videos are RYKKA’s “Movies” which was shot this summer in Switzerland, and Hannah Epperson‘s “Shadowless” which was released in 2014 and generously funded by Telus in collaboration with Public Records.

Want some trivia? Rykka and Hannah came in 1st and 2nd in the Peak Performance project 2013 with a combined cash win of over $175K. Money talks. These musicians are fantastic.

WHERE: Cineworks, 1131 Howe Street (back lane entrance)

I will be in attendance!

New short comedy film, “Beat Around the Bush”!

It is with great pleasure (and exhaustion) that I announce that my old lady orgasm movie, “Beat Around the Bush” is done!

The short film follows a 75 year old widow with Alzheimer’s who decides it’s time to have her very first orgasm ever. (It takes a few tries).

The short was awarded production financing from The Harold Greenberg Fund’s Shorts-to-Features Award last year, which included pre-license agreements with The Movie Network, and Movie Central, as well as feature film 1st draft development financing from The Harold Greenberg fund. I was also fortunate to receive further development financing from CreativeBC! Thank you funders for support me!

The long process of submitting to film festivals has begun and in about a year’s time, the short will be broadcast on both The Movie Network and Movie Central in Canada. Until that time, or until there is a film festival near you, I give you, THE TRAILER.

Grey Gritt LIVE video for “Local Smoke”

In March I finally made a trip I’ve been wanting to take for YEARS. Go to Yellowknife, NWT, in March and see what this Snow Castle on the frozen lake is all about. (Yes, there is a full on castle that normal size people, and a lot of them, can attend for all sorts of screenings, music, and performance shows.) So I packed every single layer of clothing I own, and headed North. Way North. Now, I’d also been a fan of Grey Gritt for a few years as well, using their song “Nickels & Dimes” for The Dangers of Online Dating trailer. So we made a video. And here it is.

“Local Smoke” by Grey Gritt
March 2015, Yellowknife, NWT

Directed, shot & edited by: Brianne Nord-Stewart

And The Edge YK, a Yellowknife local paper, wrote a dandy article about the video and Grey which you can read HERE or scratch the surface here:

Local Smoke, Greyson Gritt’s song and new video, speaks volumes about the artist behind the blues licks and the finger-flipping lyrics.

“If you listen to the song, she’s this, she’s that, she’s doing this, and she’s doing that, and it’s like f*** off already, she’s burning this town down and there’s nothing you can do about it,” says Gritt.

Written as part of Carmen Braden’s Local Smoke Musical Exhibition, a nod to last year’s devastating forest fire season, Gritt says the song was a way of dealing with trash-talkers.

“It’s about inner strength, but it’s also an homage to the badass ladies in my life, because sometimes I think we’re not badass enough. We should be more true to our nature.”

It’s Been a Tick

I spent all of November in Australia. “The Dangers of Online Dating” Did not win ComedyCoup. But we’re over it. Well…mostly. A fellow Vancouver team, “Human Town” won. So congrats to them!

Beat Around the Bush” the short film is almost locked and ready to send off to film festivals around the world. And then I will start writing the feature film version as Harold Greenberg Fund has so graciously given me some development money as well.

dearrouge-singitfwd-2014At the end of October had some talented film friends Riel Mcguire and Andy Hodgson volunteer with me to shoot a live performance video of “Best Look Lately” with Dear Rouge and St. James Music Academy’s Senior Choir to promote their fundraiser concert #singitfwd which is happening January 8th, 2015 at the Vogue Theatre. Watch the video below!

I recently uploaded an older in studio video of Cayley Thomas from her track “Hideaway”. Sorry that slipped under the radar.

And in the new year I will be making a few for commercials. For what you ask? An online dating site. Bangin’

There will also be more music videos and in studio videos as well, because I just love that music.
