MOOSE FM in Yellowknife talks about BEAT AROUND THE BUSH

In the lead up to the circumpolar premiere of Beat Around the Bush at the Yellowknife International Film Festival this weekend, radio host Jesse Wheeler asked Brianne a few questions about how on earth she came up with the concept behind of a 75 year old widow with Alzheimer’s who decides it’s time to have her very first orgasm ever.

Someone else wrote a blog about me

(But mostly, I wrote her blog post about me)

styling_stories_stephanie_hallIt’s cool though because we (Stephanie Hall and I ) were put in touch through a Vancouver online Forum called “Girl Gang” and, as a Creative Writer + Online Marketing Specialist, Stephanie asked the group to participate in an interview to share what it is we do all day with the world.

Brianne is a special guest on a hilarious podcast

While in Edmonton for a family reunion and two weddings, I was invited to be a guest on the two year old comedy podcast, Hijacked Headspace, and discuss my show, “The Dangers of Online Dating“. I’m on Episode 78, to listen CLICK HERE and then click this podcast icon:

The hosts Reuben, George, and Jamie covered a range of subjects throughout the hour including, strategy while online dating, music, psychedelic mushrooms, yoga, Taco Bell, drinking, homosexuality, Sexual Transmitted Infections (STI), psoriasis, lubricants, whether to put your amateur porn online, and an ask and expert moment when I call my sexual health nurse sister, for an STI question.

I got to hand it to them for being so candid about some very intimate subject matter. And here I thought I was the liberal one. This hour long podcast is fun and informative and might help you get a few conversations rolling that are otherwise…Tricky.

Public Records thinks I am LEGIT

Public Records screen grabIn the preparation for a grant application with a very talented up and coming singer/songwriter, Cayley Thomas Haug (who you may recognize as one of the finalists from Triple Sensation), I was presently surprised to get a tweet from the grantor themselves, Public Records, that I was their featured artist.

This is what they have to say about me.

“Brianne Nord-Stewart is legit. We don’t know how else to put it! She’s an Emily Carr Graduate, Leo Award winner, and has even studied abroad at the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia. What gets us about Brianne is that she’s the writer, director, editor and producer of most of her work. Now that’s legit. Seriously.”

Well I am flattered. Seriously.

The Provider wins Shaw Media’s Fearless Female Director Award

Brianne Nord-Stewart who directed “The Provider”, co-written  and c0-produced by Nord-Stewart and Andy Thompson, won Shaw Media’s Fearless Female Director Award from the National Screen Institute’s Online Film Festival

In the latest round of award presentations for the NSI Online Short Film Festival run by the National Screen Institute – Canada (NSI), Canadian short film The Provider, directed by Brianne Nord-Stewart, won the $2,500 Shaw Media Fearless Female Director Award”…The awards were decided by an independent jury.”

Comments from the jury included:

Nicholas Humphries – “Brianne Nord-Stewart’s stunning use of cinematography [by Amy Belling] and performance in The Provider caught our attention in this alternative-history horror short. The skill she showed while shooting it for a 48-hour filmmaking challenge secured it for us as the best short directed by a female.”

Maureen Levitt – “Brianne Nord-Stewart’s strength lies in bringing out the best in her characters. She really worked holistically in The Provider to create a dramatic feel and story arc in this larger than life film.”

Joy Loewen – “[We saw] stunning performances from the leads and a creepily perfect sound design [by Raph Choi] in The Provider which equals a terrific accomplishment from a director who’s on my ‘one to watch’ list.”

We are thrilled that the hard work of our team of cast, key creatives, and crew was acknowledged with acclaim!

The other awards were given to,  Tommydirected by Theodore Bezaire, which won the $1,250 A&E Short Filmmakers Award; and The Dance, directed by Pardis Parker, which picked up the $750 Bite Comedy Award.

A shout-out to Andy Thompson

Andy Thompson, who co-produced and co-wrote The Provider, is now directing an interactive theatre adventure all over downtown Vancouver!

The 2-hour show starts in Yaletown but travels to different venues as the plot moves. The coolest thing about Andy’s show is that he puts you, as the audience, as the star of the show!

I am super proud of Andy Thompson for this upcoming play. In an interview with the Province, Andy said that he “got hooked” after his experience making The Provider, which won first prize in a North America-wide Bloodshots short contest.

With five daily shows from Oct 13 – 31, this is a show you definitely don’t want to miss out on!

Please help support Andy!

Tickets: $25/$35, call 604-235-1920, or go to thevirtualstage.org/zombies

The Vancouver Sun places my music video amongst the awesome Wilco & The Pack a.d.!

From New music videos: The Pack a.d., The Autumn Portrait, Wilco
“Since its release on YouTube just 10 days ago, Vancouver indie-pop band The Autumn Portrait‘s Welcome To The Night has gathered close to 15,000 views.

Not bad at all for this little video (directed by Brianne Nord-Stewart) telling the love story between the Moon and the Sun performed at various locations in Vancouver, including the amazing Prophouse Cafe at Venables and Commercial Drive.

The Autumn Portrait plans to release three more videos and a radio single, all from the band’s debut The Design Is Over, over the next few weeks.” – Excerpt from The Vancouver Sun’s Blog AWESOME SOUND (click to read) by Francois Marchand
