I produced & directed a film here in Saint John titled:
Highest Tides & Green Grass; Introducing Saint John’s Newest Hitmakers

We didn’t know it at the time but our Arts Community was about to be turned upside down & sideways. This film represents a time capsule of local Hitmakers who helped morph Saint John into the wonderful cultural community it is to live. The pandemic changed everything & around the world Arts received a revived appreciation. Here are their stories...

Thrilled to say our documentary will premiere at the gorgeous Imperial Theatre Saturday September 25th 7pm by then most of us will be vaccinated & borders open for family to attend. The show must go on! For your tickets please visit https://imperialtheatre.com We think you’ll agree it’ will be worth the wait!
As a member of the New Brunswick Filmmakers Co-op I received valued mentoring with work shops & who to contact with experienced advice. I am grateful for the guidance.

Participated as an extra in movies filmed in Saint John:

*In Her Self Defence -with Marilee Maitland
*The Fourth Floor-with William Hurt
*When Irish Eyes Are Crying - with Daniel Baldwin
*Geraldine”s Fortune-with Jane Curtian & Mary Walsh

In the late eighties I produced a film about internationally known artist Miller Britain with interviews including the late Fred Ross and Mitchell Franklin who fought with him in the war.
