L to R: Devon, Brianne, Andrea, Sierra (as OLIVIA)

Back in April I was in production directing a hilarious and fresh presentation pilot written by one of my favourite collaborators, Andrea Shawcross. The project? YOUNG & RECKLESS. If that’s enough to hook you already, just head to www.YnRtheseries.com to get your binge on.

YOUNG & RECKLESS follows a 28 year old dude whose arch nemesis is a 13 year old girl.

(I would like to remind you to check your eyes so you realize this is not called “Young & Restless” like the daytime soap opera. We aren’t blasting our show with white diffusion and melodramtic scenes about nothing to culminate in a hundred some hours of a TV season where nothing happens but there’s a lot that is constantly suggested WILL happen. Eventually.)

Our show,YOUNG & RECKLESS, is the brainchild of writer Andrea Shawcross and her long time collaborator, Devon Ferguson. We were able to produce this pilot with the support of Telus Optik Local and CreativeBC, and it can be viewed on Telus’ VOD platform and YouTube channel.

The series stars Leo Nominated actor and co-creator Devon Ferguson (How to be an Actor) as a fast-talking law-school drop out who volunteers to babysit the daughter of his crush, the Camaro-driving, ad exec neighbor (Christina SicoliParanormal Solutions), only to discover she’s a 13-year-old nightmare (Sierra Pitkin,TrollsJuno). Doron Bell (DinoTrux), June B. Wilde (The Butterfly Effect) and Seth Isaac Johnson (The Killing) round out the stellar cast, and introduces newcomer Paige Bateman as a 12 year-old feminist sidekick.

OLIVIA (Sierra Pitkin) come head to head with authority.

Women further dominated behind the camera with cinematographer Lindsay George (Beat Around the Bush, A Night for Dying Tigers, Prodigals). The shoot was a reunion for Sierra Pitkin, a self-proclaimed 15 year-old vegetarian feminist, and myseld who first worked together in 2009 on Trolls.

Our YOUNG & RECKLESS team was mentored by television writer Mark Farrell (Seed, Corner Gas), producer Andrew Williamson (Motive), and branding consultant Annelise Larson, in partnership with Canada’s National Screen Institute (NSI).

YOUNG & RECKLESS features a great Canadian soundtrack from many up-and-coming Canadian bands including Rykka, Van Damsel, and Doom Squad. YOUNG & RECKLESS completed principal photography in Langley and Kelowna, BC in May, 2016 and was released October 7th, 2016

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.
