Hi everyone! Just a quick update to bring everyone up to speed:

1) I continue to work hard on my feature-length documentary, The Great Darkening. The project is still in the fund-raising stage, so it is not yet possible to estimate a completion date. However, the book upon which the documentary is based will be available Summer 2012. More info soon!

2) A short film I wrote and directed entitled, “Ambition Takes Wing” has just been named an Official Selection at the 13th annual Dawson City International Short Film Festival, April 5-8. Thank you DCISFF, your support is greatly appreciated. And thank you to the talented people who made the film come to life:

  • Sasha Proctor – Cinematographer
  • Morgan Brady – Co-Producer / Sound Designer
  • Richard Jacquard – Composer
  • Zachary Throne – Narrator

3) On February 9, the Quesnel Film Club sponsored, A Night with Filmmaker Shawn Swanky where the QFC screened 4 of my short films and invited me to give a Q & A. To promote the event, the Quesnel Cariboo Observer interviewed me. Thank you very much to the amazing audience, Annie Gallant from the Observer, the QFC and Trish Fuccenecco who helped program the event.

4) I am now on Twitter! Everyone can “follow me” by visiting this link here.
