“In The Meathouse” is a short film about an over-ambitious Boxer who tries to use the Mob to accelerate his career, but falls victim to old history between his Trainer and the Mob.

On reflection, the script echoes a lot of my own frustrations as I try to push ahead into Directing.

    Hello, Conor. Rikshaw Films is coming to Toronto for a two day shoot later this month. We are still in need of a seasoned Production Assistant and wonder if you are available March 28-30? If so, I would love to chat with you about your experience as a PA and also get your 10-hour day rate.

    Thank you.

      Hi Jodi,

      Thank you for reaching out. However, I’m not a PA; I work as an AD on union and commercial shoots (I’m DGC). Just this week I 1st AD’d a Kijiji commercial.

      If you need a 1st AD then I’d be happy to chat further. Otherwise I can put you in contact with a PM who has some great PAs on call.
