Thumbs Down has hit the festival circuits

Creative director, Tim McLarty has produced a new short film. In the trailer above, Thumbs Down features protagonist, Steve McIntosh. He’s a lifer accountant who has decided 25 years in, he needs to see if there isn’t something more to life than calculators and columns. His company agrees to promote him. But there’s one catch. Unbeknownst to Steve, his division was the “beard” company; a legitimate entity used to hide a crime syndicate. And because of his Steve’s special talent for moving money about, the head office wants to move him to the more active “urban” division.

This short film is Steve’s first day in his new position as he meets up with his new coworkers in a sketchy downtown bar (our thanks to the management of The Cameron House). It doesn’t take Steve long to figure out he’s in way over his head. Thumbs Down features Dan Willmott as Trigger, the highly unreliable hitman, and the short fused underworld flunky, Flannigan, played by Justin Hay. Tap members will recognize Rosey Tyler’s voice as the receptionist. Susie Burnett rounds out the cast as the syndicate master mind, Lorraine Lasky.

Thumbs Down was selected to compete in the festival, TapFest in December. Please check out the full film at the Toronto Short Film Festival in March.

Presenting …the COW-VID2000 !

When we first posted this as part of a “be kind during covid” series, we received a ton of messages  asking if this product really exists.  Alas it does not.  We created this parody video  to have some fun and get people talking to promote responsible covid-19 behaviour.

We appreciate the kind words on CowVide2000 and look forward to Canada fully opening up once the science and health experts deem it safe to do so.
