Filmed in Vancouver, Quarentine is scheduled to be released this fall starring Nastazia Kinski and Harry Hamlin. A very bad bug, Government intervention, and alot of very sick people. I play one of the unfortunate recipients of this very deadly virus.
Filmed at the PNE Colesium, the main floor area was converted into a make shift hospital shown above.
In the shots above, the secret service protects the presidents wife who has contracted the deadly disease.
I've never seen a producer move so fast so often, and Gerry gets dead with a little help from Crystal
On the set of Quarentine with Harrey Hamlin (Clash of the Titans, L.A.Law) I play one of the towns folk infected by the virus and Harrey plays the President of the United States.
Filmed in North Vancouver, and New York City, After Shock deals with the effects of an Earth Quake and the the resulting AfterShock
Lots of special effects,dust, injured people, Rubble....
The sets are incredible as you can see above. The picture on the left shows the aftermath of an earth quake on a school (centre). Everything looks real down to the last brick, however its all made of Styrofoam. Picture at right shows the same set from the rear view. Far right, A view from the helicopter of the school. Only the school portion and directly infront here is real, the rest is CGI animation.
Mark Rolston (Aliens) and I between takes. I play the camera man from WNIZ News filming the disaster.
MVP ...Most Valuable Primate
Filmed in West Vancouver,Originally called Snapshot,, MVP is a comedy about hockey, some kids and a Chimpanzee.
Moose is about to charge an opponent after being knocked flat.
Comedy is hard work, This scene took 2 hours for a single 10 second shot.
Rick Ducommun ( The Burbs, Die Hard, Last Action Hero) and I on set. We played opposing coaches.
I was fortunate to be involved in the production of "Sweetwater" filmed at the Vogue theater and local clubs in Vancouver. As a background performer I was lucky to be a part of many different scenes. I also got the opertunity to thank Terry David Mulligan for all the help he gave my mother when she modeled for Eatons in Toronto.
Sweetwater was formed in 1968 and was the first band on the roster at Woodstock in 1969. They performed on several shows of the day like Red Skelton, American Bandstand, and others, released several albums but never quite recovered from an almost fatal accident that took Nancy Nevins (Lead Vocal) away from the band at there high point.. They eventually disbanded but reunited with some of the original performers at Woodstock II in 1995.
New songs and rekindled interest in past works has propelled Sweetwater into the lime light and the movie screen with a docu-drama being released by VH-1 in August. Michelle Philips ( Mama and the Papas) plays Nancy in the later years, while Amy Jo Johnson (Felicity..Tv Series) plays Nancy in her early years. Due to differences in Nancy and Amy Jo's voice, the producers had Amy Jo sing some of the tracks on the film, but the closing performance with Michelle Philips (below left) is actually Nancy singing.

AKA Flight 180 is a film about 5 kids who avoid death by cancelling a flight before it crashes, but death has other plans and tracks them down one by one. Scheduled for release summer 2000, this Scream clone has some funny parts as well.

Laughs abound in this comedy starring Rodney Dangerfield, John Byner, Andrew "Dice" Clay, and John Pinette, The story takes place in a little Homish town of Redwood Springs. Rodney Dangerfield plays Monty, a nice guy that besides ending up with too many wives gets caught up in a counterfeit money scam.

A view of the Redwood Springs set which is actually the Bunaby Museum.
Tony & Shuffles ( Andrew "Dice" Clay & Rob Deluw) arive at the bank to speak to "Gates & Stewart" ( John Byner & John Pinette) about the counterfeit money.
Rodney Dangerfield speaks to the Producer to clarify the shots inside the general store. Rodney was hands on. He new what he wanted and did most of the shots adlib. He told me that he has a library of jokes for every situtation and never adds a joke, just replaces old with new. He is a nice man and at 77 can still pull in the laughs.
This is the third season for this TV drama. In this scene, a Rock star is served by a federal agent outside the Vogue Theater and a small riot ensues.
After seeing the horrors of war in Sarajevo, Lt. Thomas Hobbes is finally ready to settle down with his fience Sophie. But the military has one more assignment for Hobbes - test out the newest in military combat training - a top secret computer simulation known as Harsh Realm. Inside Harsh Realm, Hobbes immediately finds himself fighting for his life, forming an uneasy alliance with a virtual character, Mike Pinochio. But as he pursues his mission - beating the highest scoring player, Omar Santiago - Hobbes begins to realize that Harsh Realm is more than just a game. And what's worse - he's trapped inside this world, which is without rules and without mercy.
