BEAT AROUND THE BUSH & YOUNG & RECKLESS are available for streaming on Filmocracy

It’s very cool that some of my work is getting new life on new platforms! BEAT AROUND THE BUSH and my webseries YOUNG & RECKLESS are now available for free to members/users of the gamified streaming platform. www.filmocracy.com

Young & Reckless, directed by Brianne Nord-Stewart

I honestly know nothing about the platform (or gaming in for that matter ), and at quick glance it talked about leader board and ratings and creating an avatar and that’s just another wormhole of procrastination I’m not getting into. But if you live for that stuff, AWESOME!

This license was facilitated in a partnership with FilmHub and the Cleveland International Film Festival where BEAT AROUND THE BUSH was officially selected in 2016. So that’s pretty dope, right?

BEAT AROUND THE BUSH & YOUNG & RECKLESS are available for streaming on indie filmmaker focussed platform @WatchFearless

My short film BEAT AROUND THE BUSH and my first webseries YOUNG & RECKLESS are having a resurgence and finally getting some much deserved online distribution! Both the short and the series have been selected by the online and mobile streaming platform Fearless.

Fearless is an online streaming service that showcases features, series, and shorts from independent creators across the world. With apps for iPhone and Android, and the ability to send movies and shows to your TV with ChromeCast & Apple AirPlay, we like to call ourselves a “film festival in your pocket”.

Fearless favours content that promotes one or more of the following focus areas: 

– LGBTQ stories & filmmakers 
– Female stories & filmmakers 
– Diversity, representation and inclusion in film 
– Freedom of speech, controversial topics, and challenging conversations. 
– Content with strong messaging that drives our world forward (can be scripted, unscripted, or documentary).

With a mission and a focus like this I’m very proud to have BEAT AROUND THE BUSH and YOUNG & RECKLESS on Fearless. I hope you’ll find even more worthy titles to consume! An app is available for your handheld devices.

This license was facilitated in a partnership with FilmHub and the Cleveland International Film Festival where BEAT AROUND THE BUSH was officially selected in 2016, and with the Austin Film Festival where YOUNG & RECKLESS was selected in 2017.

So that’s pretty dope, right?

Beat Around the Bush wins Best Comedy Short at AZIFF

BATB-Best comedy short announcement

It’s true. As Una would say, “Don’t get your knickers in a twist”.

On my first day back in Vancouver after Arizona and Newport wrapped, while sipping cheap wine (that I bought) on a 112ft yacht (that some lovely but unsuspecting person let me on to), I found out that Beat Around the Bush won Best Comedy Short from the fine folks at the Arizona International Film Festival. But first the backstory:

On April 23rd, after driving 9 hours from the Newport Beach Film Festival in California to my screening of Beat Around the Bush at the Arizona International Film Festival in Tucson, I was pleasantly surprised to feel right at home.

Filmmaker Pass speaks for itself!

The screening was fantastic, laughter all throughout the theatre and and the post screening drinks with filmmakers and watchers alike was also a real treat. I’ve been to a lot of festivals and Tucson had an immediate “home” feeling to it.

I was back on the road back to Orange County not 18 hours after I arrived, and was given a fantastic farewell at a delicious brunch I wasn’t planning to stay 15 minutes at, and stayed 2 hours.

I look forward to making it back. Until next time!
