Chris Aitkens

At a young age, Chris knew he wanted to be an actor. Starting with Christmas pageants and high school drama class. A talent agent landed him a small role in the TV series, Durham County. Since graduating Dawson in 2012, Chris took on roles ranging from a murderous Cockney psychopath in Lunduntown to a singing circus-freak in the sold-out rock opera, Johnny Legdick.  Chris has also performed all around Montreal and its surrounding areas over the years, playing trumpet alongside a handful of ska bands or yelling incoherently in a hardcore punk band.

Other Movies about PUNK?

People have asked before, Why PUNK never gets a honest representation in movies (just BS sterotypes)? Well as President of Dead Ringer Movies, I think its because the right people were not involved.

Dead Ringer Movies' team in PUNK NOIR?

Jonny Scribe is the original screenplay writer, he is punk and many of the Cast & Crew are punkers themselves and perhaps this is what has called them to join me to make this film.

                     The Crew

                                  

                            Original Screenplay -   Jonny Scribe

Jonny Scribe is a Montreal screenwriter. Punk Noir is his first written screenplay. He's been a huge fan of punk rock as well as movies since he was a teenager. Since High School he's told people he would one day be a filmaker and now, at the age of thirty-three, it's becoming a reality. He comes from a French-Canadian family and english is actually his second language. He says his paternal Grandfather could not read or write let alone speak english! Thanks to his father, who worked as a lineman in the United States for eleven years, it granted Jonny the right to attend english school in Quebec in the eighties. As a screenwriter, Jonny wants to write original screenplays that are both influential as well as entertaining in both english as well as his native french language... A suivre!

She is motivated to keep on learning the craft that she loves and is so interested in. She strives to gain better techniques to express herself and tremendously enjoys bringing a character to life for the public.

          Set Landerich

Set is but what Set is. Well, that's what they say... He is a chaotic character who has wandered many places and thanks the Gods that he still remembers some.  A bloody punk, that's what describes him best. But one can also say he is a musician, a singer, a composer, a painter, a sculptor, a jeweller, a counsellor, a fighter, a defender, a bragger, and even, sometimes, an obnoxious loud mouth. In brief, he is a creator and occasionally reaches the depths of absurdity as he practices his crafts. He is also an actor when required.  In terms of acting, he has had major parts in two movies " Affinity Point" & " Do You Truss Me?", even though he has no formal schooling in the art of acting. As in other areas, he evolved from the school of life & experience.
He also plays guitar and screams in the bands ÖGENIX and WEIRD TERROR.  A complexe artist, an intricate man, those who claim to know him well, feel lucky to call him «Friend».

                  About Dead Ringer Movies 

                                

                                     Producer -  Mark Aylward

As an independant film-maker living near Montreal Canada, my dream is to make full feature movies that will of course captivate the audience and perhaps garner some attention to my art in making films. I stumbled across a Montreal screenwriter with a script that called out to me. Visit the FACEBOOK page and LIKE to keep up to date on the production of "PUNK NOIR". The funds raised here will be used to (but not limited to): i) fund other fundraising activities for Punk Noir, ii) fund the cost of pre-production, production and post production activities for the movie and sound track, iii) legal fees and other general services to allow Dead Ringer Movies to improve its ability to attract further investment into Punk Noir (the Movie).
