Sam's Commercial Debut

Hello ladies and gentlemen of the internet.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of appearing in a television commercial for O'Byrne's Irish Pub on Whyte ave. here in Edmonton. This project didn't involve Guerrilla Motion Pictures but figured I'd share this article about it. The director Jeff Woodward, whom I've worked with many times in the past, contacted me about acting in this. Apparently I have a good Whyte ave. pub look.

Something related to GMP though; the lighting department on the commercial was using a light that we just purchased. I asked the gaffer and he said that for someone purchasing their first light that this was one of the best ones so that's great to hear! The light should arrive in a few weeks.

Here's a link to the article about the commercial:
