Unscripted: the speaker series
Unscripted with Jordan Morris and Rob McCallum
Wednesday January 23, begins at 6:00 PM
Free admission; Cash bar
Join us in the New Year for an Unscripted conversation with film artists Jordan Morris and Rob McCallum! We’ll be diving into the world of filmmaking, and hearing about their creative experiences from working in the industry. Hosting this conversation will be Josh Lambier, who is the Founding Director of Public Humanities at Western and the Artistic Director of London’s Wordsfest.
Jordan is an award-winning producer and director of films like Nintendo Quest and multiple festival Best Documentary winner, Missing Mom. After a long run in live theatre, he transitioned into film where he has reapplied many of the same skills as an actor, production designer, art director and screenwriter.
Since 2013, Jordan has been creating and hosting popular seminars and workshops on screenwriting. His unique experience, disarming personality, and often entertaining teaching style have made him a popular instructor for everyone and all experience levels.
Somewhere beyond the fifth dimension and just before lunch time, you can find Rob McCallum building elaborate story-driven worlds, playing with action figures or air drumming to some favourite tunes. This Emmy-nominated and award-winning filmmaker has some solid high-fives from NBC, CBS, CBC Radio•One, WIRE, /Film and Destructoid throughout his his career. He’s conjured over $350K via crowdfunding, is a mainstay on the film festival scene and usually says, “yes” except when saying, “no.” He’s obsessed with all things Jim Henson, has a deep love of Masters of the Universe and one day wants to visit Duckburg.
Expanding from our pilot “Talk & Gawk” series in 2016/2017, Unscripted is TAP Centre for Creativity’s speaker series that is free for anyone to attend. Every Unscripted event will feature a different professional in the arts, ranging from performers to musicians, writers, designers, and many more. We are excited to present a series where people can come together to hear “unscripted” stories, ask questions, and learn more about the creativity that exists in all aspects of the arts.
