Face of Furry Creek – Season 2% in Production

14 Mar

Hiya all. Just a quick update. I’m still here. Just been hiding indoors writing away on season 2% of The Face of Furry Creek and let me tell you, it’s even weirder and funnier than season 1. You can expect many of your favourite characters to return alongside several new characters. We just shot the first half of season 2% in Whistler, British Columbia and, while I can’t reveal too much, here are a couple pics from the shoot. Want to see more of us weirdos as we shoot? Best way to do so is to join Furry Creek’s Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages! More news coming soon.

Documentary “Outspoken: Is The Village Dying?” Airing November 28th on OUTtv

18 Nov

I was busy over the course of the summer talking to people in Toronto about the current state of our city’s “gay village“. It has been a hot button topic for a couple years now with little consensus. With equal rights in Canada, including same-sex marriage, and a younger generation of LGBTQ people no longer feeling threatened in the streets or in mainstream bars and nightclubs, I wanted to explore whether or not we still need queer neighbourhoods or queer spaces.

So I ventured out to get a variety of opinions from prominent queer people in Toronto including former The Grid columnist Paul Aquirre-Livingston (who wrote the polarizing article “Dawn of a New Gay” in 2011), city councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, former 1 Girl, 5 Gays cast member and party promoter Michael Yerxa and many more. As a number of notable businesses in Toronto’s own Church and Wellesley Village closed their doors during filming this summer and Toronto prepares to host World Pride in 2014, this documentary asks: Is the village dying?

The documentary will air as part of OUTtv‘s new doc-series “Outspoken” on Thursday, November 28th at 8pm ET/9pm PT and repeat throughout the week. Check OUTtv’s website for more details. Also watch out for the documentary at a festival near you. Details TBA.

MKW Productions Announces “The Face of Furry Creek – Season 2″

6 Nov

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MKW Productions Announces “The Face of Furry Creek – Season 2″

Toronto, Ontario – Nov 4th, 2013: Canadian writer, actor, director and producer Mark Kenneth Woods and MKW Productions have secured a deal with OUTtv, with the participation of the Bell Media Fund, to produce a second season of Woods’ original scripted comedy series “The Face of Furry Creek”.

The second season will again consist of 6 television episodes and an original digital companion project designed as the contest website within the plot of the television series. Viewers will be urged to visit the faceoffurrycreek.com website to see original media-based contest assignments “made by” the fictional characters in each weekly television episode. Ranging from videos to ongoing online voting, the mobile and tablet-friendly website will provide viewers with the continuing opportunity to engage in the television series beyond their TV screens.

The cult hit that Blouin ArtsInfo called “gutsy satire that deserves more attention” and Homorazzi called “clever and entertaining” will follow the lives of the fictitious citizens of the small mountain town of Furry Creek as last year’s winner faces challenges during their reign and a new contest gets underway.

The mockumentary series will again star Woods, Michael Venus, Ryan Steele and Amy Goodmurphy in multiple roles.

Woods, whom will also act as executive producer, will write all 6 episodes of the second season.

Production will begin in Vancouver and Whistler, British Columbia in February, 2014 and the series is expected to debut in Canada in the summer of 2014.

FOFC Episode 1 Online + On-Demand on Shaw Cable

25 Sep

furryThe Face of Furry Creek‘s pilot episode is now online for free on OUTtv‘s website. But you do need to live in Canada to watch the first episode (or at least trick the website into believing you’re in Canada). Season 1 will be available online worldwide in early 2014. But for now, Canadians can check out what the heck I’ve been going on about if you haven’t seen any of the TV series. You’ll naturally want to hit up the website for all the contestant’s audition videos after you watch episode 1.

The entire first season is also now available on-demand if you subscribe to Shaw Cable here.

Gurl!

25 Jul

While we are in the midst of the re-airing of “The Face of Furry Creek“, I don’t want to spoil too much, but it looks like there has been trouble in paradise since the show aired the first time. I posted this unofficial video of Furry Creek’s bros seriously bonding in a parody of the greatest music video in the history of life: Destiny’s Child‘s “Girl“. My version is appropriately called “Gurl” and I’m Beyonce. Obviously.

Switch it to HD!


Here’s the original DC music video for comparison.
