Revenge of the beast - an Alan Smithy film

This past weekend I made a mockumentary film, entitled "Revenge of The Beast, An Alan Smithy Film". Along with a group of friends we shot this no budget production using my new Canon Vixia HF100, a hi-def video camera. The level of adrenaline and humor on set was high and the performances were top notch. We ended up with something subtly amusing, which is what we were aiming for. We're entering it in the YouTube/Sundance Film Festival, Project:Direct 2009 contest (You can watch it in the YouTube player below).

On another note, this week I heard from my publisher that they're putting out the press releases soon, and I now have the official release date for A Silent Violence of January 17th, 2009. I'm hoping to do a book release at the Coles bookstore here in Courtenay, once it's added to the Chapters catalog.
