Best Filmmaker

Jason Eisener

When tracked down, Halifax’s Best Indie Filmmaker is in Cape Breton, helping out on a friend’s movie. If he wasn’t busy enough: “I’ve been working on Hobo,”--- With A Shotgun, the feature length version of the trailer that Tarantino and Rodriguez loved---“on another draft of the script.” That script attracted the interest of major Canadian big wheel Niv Fichman (Blindness, Passchendaele), who has signed on as executive producer, and Eisener hopes to shoot the feature in spring 2009. Meanwhile, he’s finishing cutting his gang picture Streets of Domination, which has taken longer to finish than he’d hoped. “I’d love to get it out for Christmas,” he says.
