ABOUT THE ANGRY BEAR

Angry Bear's main focus is the production of feature films for theatrical and digital release.

Angry Bear Film Productions was named after it’s founder’s disgruntled teddy bear character “Mr. Gregory”. Mr. Gregory is the beloved companion of middle-aged exotic dancer and talented painter/photographer, Margret Sapphire. After thirty years of diligent silence, Mr. Gregory lunges to life and set’s out on a quest to save Margret from herself, in the process, liberating himself from his emotional prison…

Like Mr. Gregory, people live their lives in silence, afraid to make waves. Deep down, we hunger for the truth to be told, the messy unedited truth. Life is messy; it’s complicated, confusing, and crazy as shit. Angry Bear Film Productions tells those messy stories; stories as odd as they are entertaining and relatable.

We rebel against the “ideal”.

We are always interested in new ways to tell stories and in cinematic innovation. Why force-feed people the same old stories, when we can invite them on a journey of discovery.

Angry Bear Film Productions is a film production company located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Back in 2009 I created Angry Bear Film Productions as an entity to produce my films under.

Before anything, I started out performing improv comedy. My goofy imagination eventually branched off into writing, and then filmmaking.

I have written/directed/produced seven short films. I wrote five feature screenplays, and I co-wrote two other feature screenplays.

Comedy has always been my niche, but I’m also a huge sci-fi and fantasy fan. My feature screenplays range from dark comedy, science fiction, fantasy, and horror. My screenplays range from ultra-low-budget to sci-fi epic. I write the kind of stories I enjoy watching on screen, and reading in books and graphic novels.

I’ve also been fortune to have worked with some amazing cast and crew over the years, many of which I worked with time and time again. I had some talented and fun writing partners as well.

I also have a background working in film and television as a Lamp Operator in the lighting department. I’m a member of IATSE 891 in Vancouver, and a member of IATSE 873 in Toronto.
