    Vito is frigging furious about the Senate scandal. With Steve-o hiding in Peru rather than answering questions about Mike "Megabucks" Duffy, Pamela "AWOL" Wallin, Patrick "Domestic Abuse" Brazeau, and Nigel "Cheque Writing" Wright, maybe it's time to get medieval on these politicians' asses. **** An Espresso With Vito stars Canadian Comedy Award winner Marco Timpano as Vito Cazzolungo, an outlandish, outspoken character who dishes sardonic wisdom between sips from his espresso cup. In his bathrobe. In a park. Riotwire.com is your hub for the best political mockery and comedic commentary.

      • Fight For The Cure - Short Film

        This is the short film we produced and showcased to kick off the evening at the Fight For The Cure (FFTC) Event this past Saturday at the Hampton Inn. Different ideas were worked into the mix while storyboarding with Matt Whittekar and Rob Imbeault from the FFTC foundation. They stressed the importance of including the people involved behind the scenes that make their charity such a success, so we collectively agreed on bringing their stories into the mix. The foundation is in its fifth year and raised an amazing $230K for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.. Not bad considering that their first year saw the event pull in just over $500 dollars. It was pretty exciting to work through the initial concepts being brainstormed to the actual filming and production of this piece. Hearing each fighter's story and learning about the how's and why's that lead them into the ring was pretty moving.. Then on to the fun stuff.. filming these white collar volunteers in action. Everything from the vigorous workouts, sparing in the ring and then back to more cardio training.. It was pretty intense to see them put their bodies on the line like that. Once this part of production was done we took things over to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation's Maple Soft Center to see where the funds go and how they help people living with Cancer. This is where the project became very real. When we initially got involved in this project last year we understood how our efforts could contribute to this cause and as a filmmaker that was really exciting, but when I prepared to head over to meet some of the people at the Maple Soft Center I really didn't know what to expect. I thought that spending time actually talking to the people going through their battle with Cancer was going to a sad experience. However I found it was quite the opposite. I was able to chat with 2 ladies and who have been living with Cancer and hearing how positive they were through their fight. It became clear to me that a major part of beating cancer was your outlook on the situation. Seing how the MapleSoft Center has helped these people stay positive through this stage of their life was totally uplifting and something that is really making a difference. We couldn't have been happier to be a part of Fight For The Cure this year and we look forward to lending our cameras to them next year.

        • Fight For The Cure Teaser

          We've been working closely with the Folks from the Fight For The Cure foundation over the past few months and all I can say is that its been one of the most rewarding and meaningful experiences I've had since the beginning of my film making days. So many people are affected by Cancer today and it's pretty cool to see how over the course of 5 years, two brothers who share a passion for boxing can not only build an amazing team around this foundation, but also bring an entire community together to make fighting this horrible disease an easier battle. This years boxing Gala will showcase several "white collar" boxing matches.. the main event being a member of parliament, Justin Trudeau squaring off against the 37 year old member of Senate, Patrick Brazeau. We've been fortunate enough to spend time working with the fighters as they vigorously prepare for saturday night and will be showcasing a feature film to kick off the event. We wanted to share this glimpse with you and hope you will take part in supporting this event. Mark Song: Bernini's Angels LXD Mix Licensed by: Themusicbed.com Produced for: www.fightforthecure.ca
