Wow – when a great script meets a terrific Director… sparks and magic simply fly!
Please join STS in congratulating the heck out of James Barron for his option of Disposal Problems to Director Paul Thompson. Here’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Paul…
Since 2004, Paul has directed several short films, including Where the Wild Things Go, Doe and Quarantine, and music videos for Canadian artists including “Charge!!” for Charge of the Light Brigade, and “Let’s be Friends” for hip-hop artist Infinite. Commercials he’s produced have aired nationally. In addition to his creative projects, Paul is well known as one of the leading digital and HD technicians in Toronto’s feature film industry with credits ranging from indies such as Hedwig and the Angry Inch to Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D and Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim. Recently his short film “Quarantine” screened at the Mississauga Independent Film Festival in Ontario, the Zero Film Festival in Toronto, and the HyArt Film Festival at the historic HyArt Cinema in Wyoming. Paul’s pilot script for the zombie television series “Grave New World,” co-written with Luke Sneyd, won first place in the Page International Screenwriting Awards contest in 2006, as well as prizes from the Slamdance Teleplay Contest and the Cloud Creek People’s Pilot Competition. And his IMDB is available here: http://www.imdb.com/name/ nm0860582/
Then there’s James himself, of course! If Paul Thompson wants a piece of him – maybe you better check out James, too. Soon…
