Grab that calendar off the wall and mark the date: Monday, April 24th will see the launch of my next film, SPACE MONKEY: ORIGINS!

I've been watching wrestling my entire life, and the biggest thing that I miss in today's programming is the total lack of vignettes (short videos to hype a wrestler's upcoming debut). In my opinion, it's in these short videos that the audience really begins to understand and tap into what a character is all about.

When I moved to Toronto at the end of 2015, my first order of business was to take in a pro-wrestling show. It was at this show that I first saw Space Monkey wrestle. I was instantly enamoured with his insane gimmick and amazed by how well he married that with his fighting style.

It was love at first sight ( <3 ) and the wheels in my head started turning immediately.

I approached him with the idea to film a character vignette that transitions into a highlight reel, and that is exactly what we're releasing on April 10th. I hope I can do my part in helping you all also fall in love with the Space Monkey.

In the interest of educating the non-wrestling fans out there, here are a few of my all-time favourite vignettes from the wacky world of professional wrasslin':

Mr. Perfect shows off his ridiculously perfect athleticism.

Here we see Ted Dibiase (AKA The Million Dollar Man) purchasing an entire public pool so that he can kick out all of the children (what a bastard).

I have no idea what is going on here, but I love it.

Last but certainly not least, The Mountie instructs some filthy American which direction the USA is.

That's it, that's all, folks. We worked our asses off on this one, and I can't wait to share it with you.

PS. It's one year today since my last audition. So far so good, y'all. <3
