Synopsis

Our punk rock hero is possibly society's last chance to redeem itself. When Douglas Menzies' poor Catholic parents died in a tragic boating accident when he was just a teenager, Douglas was forced into a harsh street life. He immediately got in with the wrong crowd and became a punk rocker. After spending two decades on the streets, Douglas had a life-changing experience one day. He was sitting on the street when the Popemobile drove by. He shoved his way through the crowd and caught a glimpse of the Pope and was overtaken by immense feelings. He couldn't understand his feelings until the Pope looked at him and winked...and then Douglas knew for a fact that HE was destined to become Pope...

Talent, Writer

Trained at Seneca College's Acting for Camera and Voice program, Mathew learned the 'dark arts' (lol) from some of the industry's finest, or at least friendliest :)

He's gone on to do music videos, and principle spots on crime docudramas, but his heart (if he has one) is in comedy.

He's performed live in Toronto's community theater scene, as well as competing abroad.

Director of Photography, Immoral support

Hey I'm Emolie. I studied film the hard way...by making films. Most of my work, however, is under pseudonym...or has been bought out. But hey, we all gotta survive somehow, right? The only important thing for me is to be doing what I do best...and that's film-making. And now for something completely ignorant.

Director, Marketing / Social

Hey - I'm Matthew's BFF... some people say we look alike...which is true.

I love this stuff! Ever since I was a young boy, I've been making a fool of myself in front of the camera.

Actually, I never grew up come to think of it...

I studied film by watching 'Apocalypse Now' a hundred times.

    Hey (all) you fan(s) and supporter(s) out there - thanks for your encouragement(!). Things haven't been easy with team members bailing and such, but I thought the world (even if that means only one or two people) deserved to see this. So...enjoy at ur own risk.
