Bone Deep

Zachery Barrett wants to grab life by the balls; he’s ready to be an adult, but his mother and his teachers treat him like a kid. With the help of his friend Terence, he’s going to get control of his life and cross firmly over the threshold into being a man.

From the creative team that brought you Wake; Bone Deep is the next in the series of short films from Jessica Marsh’s original play Maelstrom.

Bone Deep will shoot in October 2012 and will be directed and produced by Halifax-based actor and writer Jeremy Webb.

Nova Scotia Communities, Culture & Heritage has awarded the company a $5000 grant to go towards the creation of the film.

Despite the new grant award, and winning CBC’s Short Film Face Off, the company still needs to raise over $4500 before shooting begins in October. To that end they have created an Indiegogo campaign, where patrons can donate online and receive a variety of rewards and perks for helping the film get made.

The link to the Indiegogo page is: www.indiegogo.com/bonedeepfilm?a=145647

Bone Deep will air on television. It will also be entered into the Short Film Face Off and be sent to film festivals for consideration.

"We were so blessed by our experiences with the first film (Wake),” says director Jeremy Webb. “We have a set of shorts standing by and even two features in the works, but we are taking it steady, learning the process one film at a time. We really hope that folks will see the value in supporting the arts here in Nova Scotia and helping our team to once again shoot a film."

Webb hopes that the success of Wake will encourage people to get behind Bone Deep. "Along with winning the CBC's Short Film Face Off, Wake also won two awards in the Venice Beach Love Unlimited Film Festival in California: Best Short and Best Supporting Actress for Shelley Thompson.”

Charles Hsuen

Even after almost 30 years as the voice of jazz in Halifax, Charles Hsuen shows no signs of slowing down. His passion to preserve and promote the genre to listeners of all ages cannot be overstated. Recently we spoke with Hsuen about his roots, and his life-long love of big band, bebop, swing, Sinatra and more.
What are your own roots? My roots derive from a rather mixed background. My father is of Vietnamese / Tibetan / Chinese heredity, but grew up in India, before immigrating to Canada in 1967. While my mother’s roots stem from Indo-China, she grew up in Brunei before immigrating to Canada in 1969. Both extended families ultimately settled in Toronto and my parents met and married in the early 1970's. The last name “Hsuen” (now XUAN), pronounced “Schwen,” comes from the Last Emperor of China Henry Pu Yi who ruled using the name Xuantong from 1909 until his forced abdication in 1912. The story was of a tumultuous reign, his forced resignation and eventual attempt to reclaim his ti…

Danny Bilsborough

Danny Bilsborough, NSCC alumna and owner of Danny B Studios, has spent most of her days consulting various clients on software options for their new business endeavours. 
Although she’s been involved with assessing some really exciting projects, nothing makes her happier than grabbing her brush and splashing colour on a canvas. That’s why she’s decided to take the plunge into becoming a full-time artist.
“I was always so scared to try using colour, but when my daughter was born and the opportunity came to incorporate these new palettes into her life, they quickly found their way into mine,” she says.
Colour brings light to many things and gives people a sense of enjoyment. Markus Maier explained in his academic journal titled Color Psychology that colour carries great meaning and can have an important impact on people's affect, cognition and behaviour.
Bilsborough’s favourite pieces to create are those of nature and animals – a quick look at her online Etsy page confirms this. She be…

KING OF KINGS

Commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the passing of Elvis Presley, International World-Champion Elvis tribute artist, Thane Dunn and his Cadillac Kings, will perform seven shows throughout the Maritimes over the coming months. Recently we spoke with the King of Kings about his passion and profession.
What are your roots? I was born in Moncton, New Brunswick. I've lived everywhere from California to Toronto but Moncton always has had a special place in my heart. My musical roots have always been early Rock and Roll and also old Country and Western like Buck Owens and Stonewall Jackson. I’ve always been a huge Jim Morrison fan. He had a lot of similar traits to Elvis.
What first inspired the Elvis tribute? I always loved the man and I’ve had people tell me I looked like him and in early bands I was in people would say I sounded like him. I had a few months leading up to the decision to do it where it seemed every time I turned on the TV there was Elvis, the radio would be playing Elvis…
