Webb to make play Wake into short film 

Jeremy Webb to direct dark comedy that will air on the CBC in 2010

More short films going to camera in Halifax: From October 23 through 25, 2009 Merritt award-winning actor Jeremy Webb will be stepping behind the camera for the first time, directing the short Wake. It’s based on the Jessica Marsh play Maelstrom, a dark comedy about a young man returning to Halifax to attend his uncle’s funeral and to exorcise past demons. Webb performed in the play at Festival Antigonish Summer Theatre’s Late Night Series in 2002. The film is produced by Webb and Elizabeth Guildford and funded by CBC TV (where the short will be broadcast in 2010) and Nova Scotia Tourism, Culture & Heritage, who awarded the filmmakers with a creation grant. Starring in the film is Simon Henderson, Stacy Smith, Shelley Thompson and Cliff LeJeune. Becky Parsons is the director of photography.
