Director Biography - Heston L'Abbé

Heston is a Montréal-based first-time filmmaker. For more than a decade he worked in visual effects, contributing to the work of such local luminaries as Denis Villeneuve, Jean-Marc Vallée, and Xavier Dolan. He now directs commercials and hopes to one day make the kind of movies which inspired him as a child.

Director Statement

This project is my first serious foray into filmmaking. A lighthearted romp through a Fallout/Mad-Max inspired post-apocalypse, UBOS aims not for thematic profundity but is rather an attempt at technical mastery: can our modest team make some pretty pictures which, when pieced together in this magic we call cinema, make an audience feel suspense or excitement? Even just a little?

Entirely self-funded and self-produced, UBOS was also a experiment to see how close I can get, with my limited means, to the scale and scope of the films which inspire me. It was a true labour of love, and I hope it shows. Enjoy!
