Exciting article from The Georgia Straight with a review of Mr. James is Dead!

"The invention, timing, and choreography of “Mr. James Is Dead” is no less impressive, thanks largely to Peter Hoskins (who also wrote) as a nebbish who can’t find anything good to say at his father’s funeral. You won’t find any spoiler’s here, although we will say this: never trust [redacted]! Directed by Daniel Irving and Josh Aries, “Mr. James…” somersaults through its gonzo plot turns with style and gusto. Again: how in God’s name did they shoot this in three days?"

A fun article from Hollywood North Magazine!

"The name is James. No, not James Bond. Shot in a somewhat large-like space of an old building that creeked no matter where you stepped, the place may have been somewhat noisy, but the crew had fun given the shoot, the craft service looked interesting (I didn’t eat any though) and the actors had plenty of fun with the crew."

Dirty Laundry by Canadian Filipino director Josh Aries and led by an all-Canadian Filipino cast also garnered the event’s two People’s Choice awards: best overall short and best overall performance for actor Jordan Cameron who’s half Filipino, half Dutch. The film’s producer Philip Planta was also honoured with the MAMM Long Time Supporter Award.
