brenda matthews, beat around the bush, short film, brianne nord-StewartThis news could not have come on a more needed day.

BEAT AROUND THE BUSH won Best Short at the 12th Broad Humor Film Festival in Venice, California!

I think it can now be an official fact that whenever I am unable to attend a festival, we win an award. Basically, I should never travel and we’ll do really well!

Thank you to the festival for giving our film the recognition! And to all the below winners, congrats!

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.

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.

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!

DOOD-comedycoup-mission7paula
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.

Cayley Thomas & Sabrina Robson bust out “Jolene”

“Jolene” (Dolly Parton Cover) by Cayley Thomas & Sabrina Robson
July 9, 2014, Vancouver, BC

My longtime Edmonton friend, and fantastic songstress, Cayley Thomas graced Vancouver’s presence last week and I could help but take advantage and pair her with another set of unique pipes; one Sabrina Robson, whom you can listen to on the records of Vancouver’s own This is THE SHOES.

At 12pm I beckoned them to come sing, 3pm we had a song picked, at 5:30pm they showed up and by 7pm they had rehearsed and we had finished filming. Of course the only logical thing to do after was bike to crab park and celebrate a birthday with some beers and friends (who also happen to make up a large majority of the Vancouver music scene. NBD.) Life is good.
