THE BOMB SQUAD by Peter Brusikiewicz

 

Tom and Steve are active graffiti writers, each with his own agenda, until one night, they get into an argument over graffiti and the mischievous actions of Tom get Steve in trouble with the law, and only Tom can get him out of this mess.

 

PETER BRUSIKIEWICZ Peter graduated from Media Arts at Sheridan College and has obtained an Ontario College Advanced Diploma in April 2005. Since then he has been struggling to find a job in his field. While applying for jobs, particularly in the editing department, in various production companies, he has been doing volunteer work. His volunteer work ranges from PA work on music videos and feature films to editing short films for his demo reel. Peter’s ultimate goal is to direct. He feels that writing and editing gives him the knowledge that is needed for good directing. He has also taken acting training to further develop a feel for directing. He has completed second city. Peter has just opened up his own production company called Trouble & Maker media and he will be directing his first low budget music video in the upcoming weeks.

 

MY FIRST HALLOWEEN by Ian Kennedy

 

My First Halloween is the story of two South American brothers in Toronto — Ricardo (age 9) and Andre (age 13) –, and their first experience of Halloween. On Ricardo’s insistence, they set out to do some ‘trick or treating’ in their apartment building.

 

After publishing short fiction in magazines in Canada and the U.S., IAN KENNEDY wrote and directed two short films — MOVING (2004) and YIELD TO SELF (2005). MY FIRST HALLOWEEN, directed by Alan Powell, has received funding from the Ontario Arts Council and the NFB. MY FIRST HALLOWEEN will be shot in mid-March, 06′. Ian is presently working on a feature-length script about a man who returns to his home town after an absence of decades to confront his personal demons.
