    APRIL - Laughing  together is absolutely the most healing thing you can have in a  relationship. A few weeks ago we went for a walk to our happy place,  this beautiful spot by the river where we can go and watch the sunset  and just started snapping pictures. We caught a moment where the two of  us just burst out laughing together and the result was a photo that  captures our entire relationship. Silly, in love, hopeful and grateful. The smile I have is all thanks to this girl. She has brought out a happiness inside of me I didn’t know existed. And my heart, is open.

    Rowan Jang MiTribe Producer Honors The Late Bruce Blain

    Rowan Jang MiTribe Producer Honors The Late Bruce Blain

    "Being interviewed later today by "I'm Here With Magazine" discussing the life and legacy of Bruce Blain, sharing some of my own story, and talking about why it's so important for emerging artists to receive mentorship and support.  I encourage everyone to check out the amazing work they're doing spotlighting Canadian content creators!"

    .



    "I've refrained from sharing my thoughts and experience with this over the past few days as I was struggling to find the right words. But I've come to realize that there can be no "right words" in situations like this, so here goes.

    .



    Our industry has lost a titan. A brilliant actor, writer, mentor and friend to many, myself included. I first met Bruce Blain over three years ago at one of Jeffery Lando's famous Oscar night parties. He immediately struck me as a larger than life personality who was never afraid to speak his mind. I respected that...and the fact that he kicked my ass at Oscar bingo.

    .



    Over the next few years I ran into him frequently at film industry  events and would see his face pop up randomly on TV shows shot in town. He was clearly a consummate professional who had been making his living  in acting since before I was even in high school. It was only in the  last few months of his life that I had the privilege of truly getting to  know him. Three months ago, he came in to audition for a short film I was casting for director Matthew Leigh.

    .



    As a matter of fact, I had not intended to bring him in for this  project. He had found the breakdown online and FB messaged me, basically  talking me into giving him an audition. I knew he was far too old to play the part he wanted but for some reason, I brought him in. If just about anyone else had asked me for an audition in that way, I would've  found it unprofessional and irritating, but with him I wasn't bothered  at all. He was just that friendly and persuasive a guy.

    .



    As it turned out, bringing him in payed off as he was cast in a  different role in that film. But auditioning in MiTribe Manor ended up paying off in another way, as I was to learn about his brilliant  initiative Real Reel Productions and the work he was doing with Ambrose Gardener to help launch the careers of new and young actors. In a profession so defined by competition, to find someone who really wants to see other actors succeed and more than that, makes it their MISSION to help them succeed, is a truly rare thing. It spoke to his generosity,  kindness and his believe that young actors should have every possible opportunity to get their foot in the door. His reputation as an acting instructor was already well established at this point through his  "Auditioning 101" class. A close friend once told me that his class was the type of class he had needed all along without even realizing it.

    .



    My own company's mission is to provide a platform for emerging artists  to share their work. Offering MiTribe Manor as the filming location for  Real Reel Productions seemed to be a natural fit. Sadly we only got the  chance to do two shoots here together before his passing.

    .



    ust over a week ago Ambrose messaged me saying he and others in the  industry hadn't heard from Bruce in a while and were growing concerned. I offered to drive down to his apartment and check up on him. By an odd  coincidence the building he lived in was right next door to the east van  housing coop that I grew up in. I spent about an hour outside his  apartment trying to buzz in. more on Rowans facebook.



    Rest in peace my friend. - Rowan Jang

    Jason K. Roy is known for his work on Queen of the Andes

    Jason K. Roy is known for his work on Queen of the Andes

    Jason K. Roy is known for his work on Queen of the Andes (2020), The Man Who Loved Flowers (2015) and Délivrance (2010).  Canadian actor who's appeared in multiple film, television, commercial, radio and theater roles. Fluently bilingual in both English and French. 

    .



    @jkractor Jason K. Roy a une intéressante feuille de route dans l’univers cinématographique. Cependant, l’année 2020 à pu assister à la naissance du poète qui sommeillait en lui, alors qu’il a lancé récemment son premier recueil : « Bullet for the archers ».

    Jason K. Roy a une intéressante feuille de route dans l’univers cinématographique. Cependant, l’année 2020 à pu assister à la naissance du poète qui sommeillait en lui, alors qu’il a lancé récemment son premier recueil : « Bullet for the archers ».  

    .



    Se décrivant comme une personne ambitieuse et optimiste de nature, l’artiste originaire du Madawaska ne s’est pas laissé abattre par le fait que plusieurs de ces projets de film, dont un sur la scène internationale, ont été repoussés en raison de la pandémie.  

    .



    Il en a plutôt profité pour explorer le monde de la poésie.  

    .



    « La poésie, c’est spécifique comme audience. Comme artiste, je l’ai fait pour moi-même, pour le partager avec le public ensuite. 

    .



    »   Dans ce recueil, Jason K. Roy, le poète, explore les observations qu’il a faites de son entourage au cours des dernières années.   « Pour le mettre le plus simplement possible, mon recueil est le reflet de mon temps passé à prendre une pause pour observer mon entourage. C’est aussi banal qu’une réflexion par rapport à une photo que j’ai prise outre-mer. C’était une photo d’un vieillard sur un banc de parc. » .

    .



    « Moi, je ne voyais pas la personne en tant que telle, mais tout ce qui l’entoure. C’est du style : “c’est qui ce monsieur? À quoi il pense? Pourquoi il est là?” Mon idée est de prendre le temps d'observer, entre les lignes, la signification des choses normales qui nous entoure. ».

    .



    M. Roy raconte qu’il s’est aussi inspiré de ses voyages.   « J’ai travaillé notamment dans le nord de l’Afrique et ça m’a donné une ouverture d’esprit que je n’avais pas nécessairement quand j'habitais au Nouveau-Brunswick. »  Même si ce premier recueil a été écrit en anglais, Jason K. Roy n’écarte pas la possibilité de réaliser du matériel en français également.

    .



    Ce dernier se penche d’ailleurs sur l'écriture d’une deuxième livre. Il souhaite explorer différentes avenues.   « La chose qui est certaine, c’est que je vais écrire un deuxième recueil. Pour le reste, je n’ai rien de concret, mais j’ai plusieurs notes collées un peu partout. Je songe à collaborer avec des musiciens afin d’en faire un livre audio. J’aimerais peut-être aussi composer un album avec ça. Ma flamme est bien allumée, alors on verra bien comment ça va se développer.  ».

    .



    Même si les tournages de film se sont faits plus rares au cours des derniers mois, un film dans lequel Jason K. Roy a joué a été présenté lors d’un festival international de film à Halifax. Il s’agit du long-métrage « Queen of the Andes ».   « C’est un projet dont je suis fier. Même s’il n’a pas été tourné cette année, il y a quand même quelque chose qui voit le jour en 2020 côté film. ».

    .



    « Ç’a été un plaisir de faire ça et la réalisatrice est une personne passionnée et ambitieuse dans sa direction. »  Même s’il a été moins visible à l’écran cette année, M, Roy estime tout de même qu’il a connu une séquence riche en projets, surtout depuis deux ans.
