Brodie and Paul began collaborating together as early on as high school in rural Ontario. Their pursuit of film led them to Toronto where Brodie attended York University and Paul to Humber College, where they completed studies in film production.
They both worked in several disciplines in the industry; experimenting with cinematography, lighting/grip, writing, directing, and editing. Ultimately they began working together once again in physical special effects, with credits on Repo! The Genetic Opera, Spiral: From the Book of Saw, and the upcoming Chucky TV series.
Brodie and Paul’s breadth of technical knowledge and yearning for a creative outlet is what led to the creation of their web series Dark Before Dawn. Spanning several years, the duo spearheaded the creation of this series independently; they shot episodes whenever they had enough money and time to devote.
Dark Before Dawn has been featured at numerous film festivals such as Toronto After Dark, Blood in the Snow, and the upcoming FilmQuest in Provo, Utah. Paul and Brodie are hard at work writing new and original feature scripts, as well future DBD content.
