If you got into HollyWeb Fest, you’d be drooling too.

THE DANGERS OF ONLINE DATING is heading south in April as we’ve been officially selected for the 7th Hollyweb Fest in Hollywood, California! It was a fantastic experience to be officially selected and in attendance last year with YOUNG & RECKLESS (we also picked up best editing for the series!)

“As the world’s premiere destination for digital content, we are consistently screening the best digital series and pilots available online.” – Hollyweb Fest

Both myself and lead actress, Paula Burrows, will be in attendance for the entirety of the festival! See you there!

In case you didn’t know, Paula is also a writer and assistant editor of our companion webseries, “SEX, With Paula“!

Please subscribe to our YouTube channel and social media to show us your support – IT REALLY MATTERS! – and leave us a comment on as many videos as you can. Cheers!

The cast (and some crew!) at the launch party and screening of “The Dangers of Online Dating” in Vancouver, BC at The Penthouse November 23, 2017. (L to R: Stacy Mahieux, Paula Burrows, Brianne Nord-Stewart (creator/writer/director), Peter New, Byron Noble, Natalie Catherine, Sierra Pitkin)

To whomever is reading this, thank you for taking the time!

Whether you’re here to (fingers crossed) vet me for a job, check out some of my award-winning work (😉), or maybe we’ve gone on or about to go on a date and you’re cyber stalking me (well done, but please stop) thanks a million for hanging out long enough to read this sentence.

The last year was really all about getting my original digital series, THE DANGERS OF ONLINE DATING, written, produced, edited, delivered, and finally, launched into the ether that is the internet. Wow.

Well, I did it. The show is out (WATCH IT). Ready to be consumed (WATCH IT). It’s done (Did I mention you should WATCH IT). And I have already started releasing the companion sex education series, “SEX, With Paula“. There are 9 episodes of #DOODtheseries (WATCH IT)(use this hashtag!) and soon to be 9 episodes of #SEXwithPaula (this one too!) out as well, AND we’re going to continue releasing new episodes of the latter until we cannot possibly anymore.

Phew.

There are a few people that I absolutely need to thank.

First to the cast and crew of season one, which we started filming in 2012 (yes, really). To Paula, Stacy, and Byron, thank you so much for coming on board back then, and for still being committed 5 years and 2 provinces later! To our very tiny and committed crew, thank you for your countless (or few) volunteer hours on what was this little idea I had.

And then to Telus Optik and the Storyhive team. There in all likelihood would not be a season 2 without you. And definitely not a season 2 like this. And to Creative BC for that little bit extra. So…THANK YOU FOR ALL THE 💰 💰 💰💰 !

To the season 2 team…Season 2 was achieved with a great many more people, more crew, more cast, more locations – more everything – and all of those logistics were being planned and re-planned by my line producer James Hutchison. He’s the shit. (Don’t even think about poaching him.) To the new cast who came in and have been all about the show, I THANK YOU!

So what am I doing next? The question of the day, month, year, hour, minute, second…

Well, today I did some life stuff and laid on the couch and watched “Julie & Julia” because I needed Nora Ephron’s magic, and was subsequently inspired to write a new blog post (the film is about a writer writing a blog…)

Next up is re-writing a half hour pilot for THE DANGERS OF ONLINE DATING, re-writing my feature, writing a one-hour original, and pitching other web/series content that that I’ve been developing with other writers. I want to direct my first feature, and then my second. I want to get that first episodic gig, and then my second. And then I’m sailing.

Literally. I’m getting on a boat and sailing around the Cook Islands.

So please, watch the freaking show.

It’s with great pleasure that I announce that YOUNG & RECKLESS – the digital series I directed and produced about a 28-year-old dude whose arch nemesis is a 13-year-old girl – is headed to St. Petersburg, Florida for the 12th annual Sunscreen Film Festival!

The Sunscreen Film Festival has grown from its first festival in a local art gallery with 600 attendees in 2006. Now it is an internationally recognized event with an annual attendance of over 10,000 in St. Petersburg, FL and Los Angeles, CA. In 2013 the festival expanded to Los Angeles and now holds the Florida version in the spring and the Los Angeles version in the fall each year.
