Adam McKay's Profile Image

Adam McKay

Director of Photography, Editor

My name is Adam McKay. I am a filmmaker and photographer living in Timmins, Ontario. I completed my first feature film The Long Road Home, in 2011 and have since established a small media production company in Northern Ontario.

Andrew Autio's Profile Image

Andrew Autio

Writer, Talent

I've always been a film and TV fanatic. My earliest memories of 'true' comedy were watching VHS tapes of SCTV episodes my family had recorded. I attended Algonquin College in Ottawa for Television Broadcasting and have worked on film sets and as a camera operator for live events such as Ottawa Bluesfest and Jazzfest. Ultimately, my dream is to create dynamic comedy content

I grew up in South Porcupine and after high school attended the University of Waterloo, earning a degree in History. Shortly after, I traveled and lived abroad before returning home and helping create The Long Road Home, the first feature film for writer/director Adam McKay.

    Like the concept of a reporter dealing with rural issues, lots of room for comedy! Good luck from a fellow non top 110er

    It would be great if the people voting in the red would have the courage to actually say what they didn't like.

    Absolutely amazing piece, McKay has such vision, Aldred has amazing talents, and Autio really just steals the show. Like a mammoth thunder of spiritual awakening this show has shaken my core beliefs in funny, and chuckles down to the core and stuff.
