      This is a silly but fun short comedy I made as a student at Ryerson University in 2003 (let us know if you can tell :) The film explores the themes of lazy film criticism, sucky communications in early relationships and casual violence in film, with more than a passing thematic and visual reference to a certain well known director. Basically student film 101 The film was written in one evening and filmed in one day at Le Petit Déjeuner on King St. in Toronto (they serve great breakfast to this day) with a very talented crew of friends and volunteers from my film program to whom I am forever grateful. The film was co-written and shot on super 16mm film by the eminently talented Emma Hewson. It was Co-produced by the incomparable Alexander Brodzki and edited by the award winning Aaron Kopff. It also features the talents of screen goddess Natalie Lisinska and comedy heart throb Tim Doiron both of whom have gone on to great careers in film and television. This was not a Cormorant Pictures production but we thought it we would include it 10 years after the fact because it's fun and showcases the budding technical and creative talents of many of our frequent collaborators and team members including the afore mentioned Aaron Kopff, gaffer Allister Foster and director Chris Mock as well as many others. The film originally premiered at the Montreal Short Film Fest-Glitch V in 2005 Hope you enjoy!
