     The Vancouver B Movie Factory is a place where movie making dreams come true. I’ve been doing TV & Film for over 28 years and I started this as a way for me to give back to my community. This is for all those who always wanted to be apart of the world of film but were never given the chance. Now you can help make their movie making dreams come true.


       The Vancouver B Movie Factory is an established, community-engaged/social practice that includes imaginative social encounters that engage, provoke and foster participation in the film and television arts. Any one that has ever dreamed, wished or evan thought about being part of a film is welcome to join in the fun. Over two years ago, I put the idea out there on-line, thinking maybe a few people would be interested. Wow! Did I underestimate the response. Within a few weeks we had over 100 members. Now, we have created over 100 short films and over 500 members, with more joining everyday! Here is a link to our films. http://bit.ly/TVBMFPlaylist

     The process begins by having a production meeting every Wednesday, where we discuss everything from script to cast and crew. On the weekends, we get together and create the short films. It’s great fun.

     After a year, I knew that it was time to take this to a whole new level. I had to give the members a chance to be on TV and to feel what it is like to be real creative film makers. So I created “The Vancouver B Movie Factory” TV series and chose to have it aired on Shaw TV. It is important to me that the members are given a chance to be creative and feel good about what they have done. Shaw TV gives me that freedom that the other networks would not.

     You should know that the Shaw TV show is a volunteer show. The Shaw TV network dose not give any money to help produce the show. They do provide a studio, control room, and the equipment to create the show. Another bonus is they provide hands on experience for all the members. Something that they can use to add to their resumes. That is priceless. I’m proud to say that we have had a few members use this experience to do great things. Here is a link to our TV Series. http://bit.ly/TVBMFTvSeries

     We have no money for budgets. We did all this by using what we have on hand and what I had in my pocket. Over the past two years I have spent over $30,000 and I can’t keep it going on my own. Now they need your help. Donate what you can and you will be the one that made their movie making dreams come true. How cool will that be?
