Welcome! Here’s the latest:
I’ve been working on a wide range of projects, including feature film adaptations of two great novels:
- Rockbound, Frank Parker Day’s classic about fisherman on Nova Scotia’s south coast. Oliver Schmitz, who directed Life Above All is slated to direct.
- Indian Horse, Richard Wagamese’s award-winning story about the residential schools that ravaged Canada’s aboriginal communities.
- Also working with a team of writers to adapt David Adam Richard’s novel Crimes Against My Brother into a drama series for CBC TV. Compelling novel, great team.
All of these books are small masterpieces—I’m honored to be working on them.
We’ve just wrapped the CBC movie—I’ve been working on the script for the last three years, an important, sensitive story. I’ll post more information as it comes.
Time Tremors has been nominated for an International Digital Emmy and the half-hour pilot that I wrote with Elizabeth Dancoes is nominated for a WGC award. It’s a multi-platform kids drama series and interactive game we created with the cyber gods at Xenophile Media. You can watch it on CBC and play it on an app. Check it out: http://timetremors.com/#1.
