DIRECTOR'S BLOG

After graduating with a degree in film production from Montreal's Concordia University, John co-wrote, co-directed and co-produced the half hour drama, Population 420. With that success under his belt, he went on to produce the critically acclaimed feature The Suburbanators, directed by Gary Burns. Extensive festival play (starting with Sundance and Toronto) opened the door to John's second collaboration with Burns, the hit teen comedy, Kitchen Party starring Scott Speedman, which played at over 25 international festivals, winning awards and accolades. John then co-wrote, co-produced and directed Bad Money, a feature comedy starring Graham Greene and Karen Sillas.  Festival success also followed for Bad Money and it has been presented in such diverse places as San Francisco, Brooklyn, Hawaii, London, Paris, Baltimore and Bangkok. Recently John has worked with novelist Guy Vanderhaeghe on an adaptation of Guy's now classic comic novel My Present Age
