Born in Fredericton N.B. to a couple of teenagers, Sean realized at a young age….. that teenagers are nuts. After spending his first year of living like a student while his parents attended university, the family moved to the middle of nowhere, 15 minutes outside of Newcastle N.B., a town of 5000. “I lived in a wooden prison. There were trees everywhere, I couldn’t escape.”
He completed his Doctorate in Optometry at the University of Waterloo, and moved to Windsor, Ontario, Canada. After buying a digital camera to videotape candid video’s of him sneaking up and scaring people, he decided to take it to the next level. While attending his sister’s wedding in Mont Tremblant, from the second row pew, he shot away. “Oh I had it all”, as he smiles, “The walk down the aisle, the hand off, the I do’s, the kiss, my cousin singing Time To Say Goodbye, it was a real tear jerker. So I send a copy to my mother, give it a week, then call her up. With a smug grin on my face, ready to hear the praise I ask “So how’d you like it”? “I didn’t watch much of it” Jean says. “What!”(I’m shocked, I’m thinking maybe she doesn’t like the in-laws or something). Jean “Yeah it wasn’t very good. It was dark and shaky, and the sound was too low”. (I’m thinking, but what about the content? It’s your daughter’s wedding for God’s sake! Push through that technical crap.) Jean “Paul’s brother-in-law went to film school, he made this great wedding video with music and all this stuff, blah, blah, blah, I’m going to send you a copy, you’re going to love it.” From that point on, it’s pretty much been his obsession to make a movie and decisively win back his mother’s approval. Twelve thousand hours later, here it is.
