‘Til Death was a short film written, directed, and produced by a crew of students and teachers at UVic, of which I was lucky enough to be a part of in 2013. I worked alongside the director as one of two video editors during post-production. Lots of work, sweat, and hours poured into the making of this movie from everyone involved.
The ‘Til Death trailer, a short preview I helped whip up with the director, Connor Gaston, can be viewed on Indiegogo.

A big thanks to Lachlan Ross for making the EPK for ‘Til Death, and for conducting my first-ever interview as a video editor (as embarrassing as I am on camera).
Side Note: I also had a very small part in playing the role of Samantha’s mother. My face is never shown in the movie, but I do make a short appearance in one scene. If you get a chance to watch the film, I promise you that it is indeed my torso and lanky arms in the flowery robe next to Chris Mackie, who plays her father.
