Sideline: Extra Work in Two Local Feature Films

90% of my time is spent at home working on my books, so it’s good to get out and meet people. I had two short non-speaking roles (valuable seconds!) in two local film productions. The Big Fin Hall is Kelly Saxberg‘s one hour docudrama celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Finnish Hall in Thunder Bay. I play one of the few cops who raids the Hall to acquire unionist/communist propaganda. We drove off in a 1920s replica car. Fun stuff. In Rodney Dwira‘s film, 10-57 a full-length police movie, I play a plainclothes Missing Persons Unit detective (and didn’t fire a shot! Rats). Actors came from Toronto and some of the crew (graduates from the Con College film program) from Vancouver. Angela Pye is my partner in the shot on the right. Release dates are in 2011.
