We are sibling filmmakers based in Calgary specializing in both live action and animated narrative shorts which explore a variety of genres and styles in digital filmmaking.
Growing up with the advent of web media along with cinema and television, our body of work is very much inspired by the visceral imagery that we see on screen. Whether it’s a visually stunning sequence from a film, or a YouTube video with phenomenal visual effects done on a shoestring budget, we have always been fascinated with the creation of visual stories and strived to capture its essence within our own work.
Our humble beginnings started initially as short videos posted online for fun. As we honed our craft, our work began to see exhibition in film festivals, member screenings, community events, and have garnered recognition in terms of award nominations and wins. We aspire to create films that are entertaining, provoking, and skews conventional expectations with our unique voice and sensibilities taking the helm.
The Garbage Boi is a short film very much inspired by the magic of Mary Poppins with an unexpected twist. Shot on the iconic Stephen Avenue in downtown Calgary during the spring of 2019, the film was made on a whim for funsies and to make sure we still remember how to make a decent movie. The Garbage Boi has since played in several festivals in Alberta and even picked up a ‘Best Comedy Short’ award at the 2019 Edmonton Short Film Festival.
