I love sci-fi, but I also love film noir. So when I saw the casting call go out for someone to play a noir detective, who gets to wear a hat, I was all over it.
Ben Hewitt was the director, in his second year of film school at York University. I’ve had nothing but good experiences working on student films and this shoot was no exception.
I can’t give away too much of the plot without spoiling it, but my character Detective Marshall comes across a dead girl in the woods, and follows a trail of clues to find the killer.
Unusually, although the shoot was planned for two days, we actually wrapped it in one. A tribute to my immense skill and professionalism? Yes, probably.
