1. A schizophrenic young man struggles to separate terrifying hallucination from reality in an attempt to gain control over his illness.

    "In this very scary NSCAD short, a young man defies his partner’s warnings to take his meds and experiences some shocking moments, achieved onscreen through the kind of art direction usually only available in high-priced studio productions. Economically told and expertly realized, When You’re Gone reveals some serious cinematic talent on the cusp of greatness."

  2. It's the recession. Patrick's brother is arrested for robbery. Under pressure by his mob family, Patrick is forced to commit a criminal act to keep the business running smoothly.

    Shot on location in Halifax and Dartmouth, Canada, No One's Watching is a gritty short film that takes us through the balancing act of ethics and desperation in times that host what is considered the worst financial crisis since the great depression.

    No One's Watching is a student film written and directed by Justin Tomchuk, representing the NSCAD University Film Academy in his final year of his undergraduate degree. Financed with the help of friends, family and several Halifax based organizations, the film was shot in a short period of five days with a small, but highly talented crew of filmmakers in November of 2011. Many thanks to the sponsors for their support.
