GHOST CAN (2016)

Following a date gone awry, Josie returns home with an unwanted souvenir and an unexpected visitor.

Created for the Rio Theatre's 5th annual Dead on Film short horror film competition, Ghost Can was shot and edited in August of 2016. The film won both the Audience Choice and Judges' Choice awards, with later screenings at the East Van Showcase Haunted Saloon (including a Best Acting Performance award for Ariel Hansen), Rio Grind Film Festival 2016, Blood in the Snow Canadian Film Festival 2016 and Vancouver Badass Film Festival 2017, as well as being a Daily Short Pick on Film Shortage.
