Shooting in Hamilton Ontario through the Spring of 2014, we saw record low temperatures. Often we would shoot straight through the night. It was COLD! But completely worth it. Michael has been a terrific director to work with. From the outset he was generous with his time to schedule meetings to go over all intricacies of the script and the characters, yet during filming was always more than eager to give the actors room to play. I am so proud of this film!
Filming Sleep Monster was fun and challenging at the same time. We filmed straight through the night and I was wearing a silk house coat...need I say more? But apart from the cold and my eyes falling out of my sockets from no sleep and performing certain scenes, I had the most amazing time filming with some wonderful, talented cast and crew and I would do it all over again for the love of acting.
I had a great time working on Sleep Monster, an eerie and beautifully shot short film. Michael is a very talented and patient director with a great desire to tell imaginative stories. Sarah and Kerrie are spectacular actors and I'm honoured to have worked with them on such a creative project. Thank you to the entire team for all their hard work to make this a real success.
With anything in life, all I want to do is work with others who love what they do. The team on Sleep Monster were exactly that. Any challenges we met were overcome due to amazing people committed to a 'dream' and the pursuit of excellence. The experience left me inspired, so very inspired.
What a tremendous experience! I am honored to have worked with such an endlessly motivated team. With a tight shooting schedule and a few technical issues, we prevailed and I'm extremely proud of what we have put together. Thank you to our wonderful team and support structure.
