You're in your car right now because you just finished telling us the power is out of your house. So yeah, feel free whenever you know, Us a signal, and we will cut this thing short but the thing like it's a clear sky in front of me. Oh yeah. Wowser behind me man. And okay you know I don't know if that's metaphorical but it don't look back. Yeah, that's fine. Yeah. I am a feeling that might be the theme for our interview tonight. So that's where you talk to us from. I am talking to you from Sarnia. Ontario Sarnia. Yes, I am just on the border of Michigan. Hmm. Now is that where you're originally from? Yep. That I was raised here in Sardinia and you know when I went to college and Thunder Bay Ontario which is you know North pretty North. Yeah. Yeah then you know I went from there, I went to Toronto then just went to Sue's Dave Murray, and they just happen to be shooting films up there. So I start, I was working up working Toronto for about eight years then. No, not nine years and then yeah, then they started shooting stuff in sus Amory. So I moved up there with my now ex-partner and kind of stayed up there. Cuz you know, I got to work until man. Not live in Toronto. Which is, which was okay with me, or like, I like small towns, right? Yeah, so, yeah, so when we don't get too far ahead of ourselves. Let us first get you into the film industry or the Canadian film industry. Anyway, I mean what I mean, what God Into like what were you like in high school? For example. Oh man, I was not great. I was not a great student horrible student and I just like, you know, what got me into it. I don't want to ask me what I wanted to do when I grew up and I didn't really know then, you know, I was kind of lucky. I am in grade 11, like I was in my room one day and just like looking around my room and just it was covered in movie posters, I am like, oh right to go work in film and so. But at that At point I ended up pursuing film as you know, as a career and yeah nice. I am in but mean you're in Northern Ontario, what was there any industry up there? Yeah, I mean, we know now that sudbury's hopping and stuff but you know, back then was there any of that happening? No, when I so when I went to school and 99 graduated and like 2002 and there was no industry until like I was at II started in Toronto right I started post-production in Toronto right? And yeah by 2 I think like 2006 or 2007 is when you know they're that Northern Ontario, Heritage fund started producing. You know, these tax, these tax credits, right? And it kind of spits started into St. Marie then moved up to Sudbury and now North Bay's huge. And like I have been all over. But like we do I am pretty, like I have done a lot of work up there so you know, I shot in Parry Sound Timmons Sudbury, North Bay. You know, I will kind of over there. Yeah, right, right, yes. Yeah, guys. So first man, it's great to see you. We had such a blast meeting you up in Sudbury. I know I am not the only one chatting with you is probably one of the highlights. Like you were just such a blast to hang out with so Grandma. Can you look like you're doing well, we talk about school? So I know we know where you are now, but like, I went to film school ridgeley didn't pan out for me, but they teach you kind of everything, right? What were your passions in film school? Because you're going through, where do you think your trajectory was heading? Honestly, like, you know, I kind of, I always like, it's funny because like, I was always kind of lost right in life, right? That's why I always hung out, like, on the fringes. Like, I like I skateboarded and listen to punk rock, and then I got into film school. So no kept staying with The Outsiders, right? And, you know, I could like I could spend f****** hour, Is editing as a post. Yeah. And, you know, someone, you know, and I still was like, pretty lost. So, you know, someone said, hey, you're good at post-production on my, okay, you know, and I am like, that's what I am gonna go do. But, you know what happened is, you know, I was in post-production for a while for quite a while, and then I just, I have, you know, I have a hard time sitting down, right? And ever Wires a lot of long nights. Yeah, dedicated hours. So it is not my forte by far not my forte at all. Right. So yeah. So when I kind of got when I moved up to the Sioux, I started doing, you know, git which is you know, you're working on set but you're still kind of in that post-production world then I stepped out and got like Got an opportunity to try locations. So I did that for like, you know, nine ten months then, you know, a friend of ours that I don't know. I am okay to say names right leg, but it's up to you. Yeah, so a guy up there is name's Brandon Jordan, he was a second, is he was a third ad. At the time, we were shooting some, some film in Parry Sound, and he asked me to help him like walk up, right? So help him walk up to set. At, right? Because we were shooting at this Cottage, right? It was only him so for me, like it was, it was all right, right? Like it gave me that opportunity to, you know, discover something different, even if it was just locking up and helping him out, right? But that did give me the opportunity. Like, when he down the road, he wanted, he wanted to, he kind of taught me how to ad that. I met some other people and some more people and then yeah. Then I think my water Kenny was my, I think my fourth show as an add water cutting season one, that's a good one to be on. Yeah. It is it hard to sort of pivot around the industry a bit? Like I can I work in an office now. So if I want a different job, I kind of learn a bit about it. I apply for it, I get interview and I get it or don't but I suspect that's not kind of how it happens in your world. It's like you sound like you some guy taught you how to do? Like, is it kind of different method if you want to move around job rules and pick up new skills and things like that? It is, it's, it's hard to Swit. I find it difficult to switch, like, when you're good at something, yeah, that's what your known for, right? Like, I just happen to like, you know, and film is all networking. That's all it is, is not working, right? And getting the right opportunities for the right, People and saying yes to the right people and, you know, taking a chance right? Like, yeah, it can, you know, I remember my first time on set and it was horrifying and f******, you know, being on a walkie. Like, you know, because there's all these things you need to know on a walkie, right? How to communicate, right? And, you know, I just, I learned as I made mistakes, right? And I am super, I was super okay with that. And You know, eventually like especially a döner. Is there isn't a training course? Like they're kinda is but like until you get on set and do it, you just have no idea. Yeah. Right. So he didn't was going to. Yeah. You're right. There's not a nadie class like there. It does. It's not like a thing. It's like you learn all these different aspects and a lot of the rules. You don't learn about until you're there and give you an opportunity and see how others are doing it and Pioneer. Growing those spaces as well, right? Yeah. There's one thing like with a Dean, right? Like one of the because I had mentors throughout my 18 career, right? A real good dad, that was the. He was the first ad on Shore Z season 2. He actually like originally really trained me as an add when I am Mike, and I am going to pursue this. I did a quite a few shows with him and man, I hadn't worked with him. And Like five years until last season of shore Z and like table and the validation I seek from a right? Yeah. Like it was just like hey look at me I am doing good now, and he just he's not a guy out that he doesn't get Melanie good anyway sorry especially when I am directly seeking it. He knows to write you know there's like one thing there's one thing to know what it like the different ades do. There's like another thing. How do you Like an add? Yeah, I ate, you know, and that's actually, the more difficult if the challenging part like knowing where to stand on set. That's a, that's a skill, right? Especially if you know, like, you know, and just knowing, you know, like no one really tells me what to do, but I just have to listen to everything, right? And kind of, you know, be a part of the conversation, even if I am not generally like Cific. We invited just knowing you know, and having that confidence to stand there and stand beside the director and the dop and, you know, being able to properly communicate to them because like I am usually a third 80 onshore Z Letterkenny, I for Sadie. So a lot of that, you know, they're completely two, completely different jobs. Yeah. Well, we're going to go through a couple of the, the credits that you have just, so we can talk about some of the people you Able to work with a starting with something called young trophies, been made away with shot in Newfoundland. Was that the first kind of job? It was 2005. That actually Wasn't Me. Oh, hard ones are IMDb. There's like, for Brad, Miller's house, can I ask you about working with Andrea Martin and Colin Mochrie? So you didn't work with any of those people? No, no, no. It's a hard one. Yeah. There's like four of us out there, and we all gotta know of each other. Yeah. So you know what, you just kind of? I think my whole list and is based on that one, that Brad Bradley, I think you're missing a real opportunity to go abroad. You guys? Yeah, you can clean your ear, your core active, resumes together, and then just one of your shows up and it's like, all right, you need jobs. All this Brad's taken ill Brad to will step in we're good. Yeah and you just wrapped because I mean the Canadian movie and television Industries such a small place. The reason I like one through these was to kind of talk about some of the people you have worked with and some of the recurring names. She American listeners will be like, wow. Like these actors are in everything, right? Well, yeah, because it's a small, It's a small world, right? So why don't you kind of shut out? Maybe some of the people you have worked with other side of Letterkenny chores because we will get to that, that maybe, you know, folks. You know, it's all really a lot. Like when I was in post-production, like sometimes I didn't have things for me to do. They just send me to set. So I got work with Mark Wahlberg with the Incredible Hulk, or he was sorry. Traitor. I worked on Trader with him. Tim Roth, I work with on October Gale with Patricia. Clarkson. All right, I do have that one. Yes. Yeah. I work with Chevy. Chase a Chevy Chase. Oh, Arnold. And, and she will be The Dog Who Saved Christmas, which was pretty awesome. Works on Bad Blood with concludes the guys coatsy. Yeah, I won't get into that one. Yeah, well, that's a big one because that's Kim Coates, that's Melanie skroef. A no AKA Mrs. MacMurray from Letterkenny. And a Hopkins. Was there to Anthony lapaglia Paul Sorvino. I mean, that's a that's not just a big-time Canadian cast, that's a big-time cast. That was a big-time cast right now was a new method that was new metrics so that was like you know, same company that does whether Kenny and Shore Z, and we did it right after. Or Z we did this right after Letterkenny season one. We did this like brilliant show and it's like not on crate TV anymore. It's called what would Sal do? Oh, I was gonna ask you about down to because there's another, a lot of. Kenny guys on people are actors on that one to Kennedy horn, K, Trevor Wilson. Yeah. And I watched that first season and I kind of wish there was another season. That was a lot of fun. It was that sure was a lot of fun. Patrick, well, wrench show and I Kurtz beaten what. Or I think I am saying is hopefully, I am saying is night. Name reycarts mean was a writer on that, and he went on to do some pretty brilliant stuff. Some really I think he writes on schitt's Creek now. Yeah, I don't quote me on this, but he's on some pretty big, he's on some pretty big stuff. Oh my God. I am just thinking about all this the shows I have done and yeah, definitely back to your work with half a weird word with so many people from the show Growing Pains but all the Hallmark movies, right? All the Hallmark movie, right? Yeah, what mean what are a couple like highlight Productions that you have worked on over the early things that really stood out to you is either growing moments are just fun places to be or whatever. Yeah, you know what, one of my like most memorable show is this film called to whoever's in a bear that's with it was with Orphan Black. Oh my god. I have got that. Yeah. I don't have any but you did work with the late, great Gordon, pinsent on that one there. Yeah, yeah and man I mean dreams I got to work on me and dreams with. I got some crazy stories for me and dreams with Bill Paxton say, speaking of Twister. It wasn't it. Bill Paxton twister. Oh man. He was just, I am sure, ah, Manuel I have been like, you know, I was in my, I don't know, wouldn't call my Prime, but that's when I was like, dude, my stuff, right. And like him and I got along really well like I was always, you know, making sure you had a beer or Li got I don't always meet up with a master and have a beer, and we just talked and the first time, like I sat with him like he was sitting in my truck and where, you know, how about O+, Dube? Let me sit there and like, we're just talking, like I am like, talk to Bill Paxton, right? What do you say like what's it like to help? Hacks and like, like just I don't know. And so he just got to describe a couple shows three like the way of the gun and twister and then yeah, her describing his own character and man, he's like, so he plays this like kind of alcoholic corrupt pop that lost his wife recently. And you know, he has his daughter that like he's, you know, on the brink of like doing something, you know you don't want to do you write any He gets into his character man. And he's like, you know, when I, when I see her, I just, I just remember my wife. And when I smell her and every time I take a drink, I just want to go over and grab her. I am like Cheese's f*** son sitting here high as f*** and talk about this. So yeah that was kind of crazy. It's pretty cool. And it's so do you have any memories or anything working with Gordon, pinsent, I mean, he's somebody we lost just this year kind Legendary Canadian art actor. I don't know how much you had to deal with him though. Well, he was like, I didn't really we didn't really work with them because I like too much because I believe he was the voice. He was a voice of the bear. Oh, was it? Okay. So he wouldn't have been on set again now and it wouldn't really get to see him too much. Yeah I think he came on set one day but I don't care. You know on that movie too. Though of note was Joel gagne from Letterkenny join? Yeah, it was. That your first time working with him. No I had you know, I knew Joel from before from like he's done a bunch of minor roles and some Hallmarks and you know, I had worked with them a few times but yeah we're up in we shot that in Timmons, Ottawa and a cal wet. So we shot in three different cities over like two months, and so he was into Timmons portion of it and by that time we kind of knew each other and like we're pretty tight now. Ever since like water, Kenny, like, we have been pretty close. Yeah, it cools. So, let us talk about, first of all, what is chemical, Valley films chemical Valley films, it's just it's my company, so it's okay. It just my company. For, I do like, bam photography. And, you know, I do photography like I do photography. So that's all it is. It's just my company. Yeah. Your, if anyone Falls you on IG, they will see a lot of pictures of life. Punk shows. So when I called you a punk off the top, I wasn't being insulting. Its you actually identify and your big fan, are you a musician, too? Or you just a fan? No, I am just a bad man. Like I don't have any musical Talent so that's, I mean, know what happened is like I have been sober for about three and a half years and like when I still want to go see punk bands. Yeah. Yeah. But going to a bar for me. Isn't the greatest idea? Yeah. But if I go with a camera and look through that, Everything in that everything around me ceases to exist, right? Helen, I think it gives me a purpose, right? It gives me a purpose to be there and, you know, I have a, an 11:00 rule, right? Like, I don't hang out right? Like I know, I know where I am at in life, and I am okay with it. Yes I don't hang out past the weapon like that's when kind of s*** gets you know right yeah funny starts to go downhill usually depending on yeah for me 11:00 is where everything went down. Yeah. But I love the angle of the camera, though. Like a, you know a lot of people with any with anything they do with the go through just having some other Outlet is always a fantastic way to cope and just redirect whatever your instincts are. So that's fantastic. Yeah. It was my strategy, my you know, just thinking my energy and my we're am. I really look right? And that's kind of your full collection that really helped me like just being able and I go to as many shows as I want to write like I just did this band, her big band out of the stays called teenage bottle rocket. They're like, my favorite band. Yeah, we might hear from them a little later. Yeah, yeah. We is that what your shirt is? Oh yeah. I have like seven teenage bottle rockets are amazing. That's very cool. One, last question before we move on to the advertised content. Point. It's you know about the punt your love for Punk. Can you maybe talk a little bit about a documentary you're working on called from the valley to The Grove or that you worked on? Yeah this is a project. I have been working on for a couple of years. It's a film type documentary that, so I am planning, it's still in. Kind of the works right now it's a film style documentary where like I shoot things on purpose but Interviewing people talking about like specific, very specific things. So it's more thought about bands, it's more about what I want to do is make this short documentary. It's growing. You know the wife of like being in that kind of Outsider crew and small-town Canada, right? So with that what I am planning to do is make like you know, a full-length Turi. And I want to go to or like small towns like Moncton and like all these, you know, not doing big cities, like just focusing on the people in small towns because, you know, there's a reason that, you know, when I was growing up. Anyway, there's a reason why people are in the punk scene it because he just didn't fit in, right? And it's in that fit in anywhere. And, you know, either they're getting bullied, and they found a group of people that just didn't give an f*** what, where he came from, Who You Are. What you did, but we cared, what you listen to me. Sure, my makes fun of you for listening to something, but other than that, right? Like, you know, just people that just didn't fit in with a, you know, the hockey boys or you know, really like I grew up in like a Dazed and Confused type there is you know the punks first is a John alright. Alright. Yeah. Yeah. The Stoners versus, you know, the Palms, right? And we're always just on the outside cause he's*** criminal mischief. Criminal mischief. So you relate more to the skids on Letterkenny than the other. Two Fashions. I would definitely say I do. She was sense. Yes. Okay. It was look like you're afraid to admit that but yeah, but own it, right? But I can relate to all their writing, whatever, you know, just it's funny, you know, like it kind of brings, you know, the reality of what we do. Letterkenny does by what you see and wetter Kenny, if we're doing that s*** in real life, that's not the reality. We would have looked at good doing it, right? And I, you know, it's kind of part of my life is like, I spend half my time and filmed a nice. My other pretty much the other half working with, you know, addictions. And you know, I work in, like, I go to jail. I go to jails and like rehab centers and halfway houses, and go speak on addiction. So a lot of my time spent there so like when I what I watch Letterkenny, oh my God. That's too perfect right to clean? It's not dirty enough, right? But, you know, it's not whole, you know, it whether Kenny's not meant to be like that. Nice. I meant to be pretty. It's yeah, it's you to be funny then it's not funny caricature of reality. Yeah, of course, of course. All right, so let us get to the advertised content. I mean, first of all, how do you get involved in Letterkenny Oh, man, for me, it was being really lucky. I was really lucky to be asked to go third ad on this show when I wasn't quite ready to third ad and I kind of did it. I got through it. And, you know, I was going to call Mark about this before I said anything, but I am sure he'd be okay with it. Like Mark Moss Fury, he runs new metric, media. Made and dude, he like at the beginning by, and this is he still a great guy, right? But at the beginning, right? He really gave, he really cared about like it screw, and he still does sure, right? But he loves you like original people and like I went back to school two years ago, and like, I called his cell phone any answer, right? And he's doing a lot. I am sure my phone call was not that important, right? But he took it. And so funny because on season three, I ended up getting a bigger show. It was Carter with Jerry O'Connell and I took it without really, like, I didn't think about it, right? I just said, hey, I am I just took a right because it was a longer show, it was more money. Sure. And at the time, that's kind of like I didn't still like you know like your first five years working in film, you're still like new, right? Sure. And so the dynamic I had done season 1 and season 2 and season two. I went to Fourth ad just because it was something I liked. I liked doing it. I was really good at it. It was just a replace somebody else, and we just switch things and I ended up staying there because I like being a fourth ad. So what we do is like we work at base camp, my fourth day, D works at base camp, where all the hair makeup, wardrobe and everything. They get ready, we do the paperwork but Letterkenny is a big show for a fourth ad. There's been times when we had to get 18, people ready for sure first scene, right? And it's, you know, it's a tough one. So, you know. I ended up staying there. Yeah, sorry I kind of, I kind of lost my train of thought so you want you left a letter Kenny for Carter but then yeah, oh yeah, the mark, yeah for Mark. So When I did Mark that I took a new show, and he called me. I like, oh this is weird. I think I told the first lady Alex champagne at the time. That I, what I got this show. He's like, yeah, I don't care. Okay, cool. And so, then Mark called me, he's like, hey man, hey man, before you should have called me like if you're going to take another show, right? Oh my god. Oh I didn't really think I had to like, I have never had to call the, you know, executive producer of a show. Sure to say that. And but it does show like his character, right? Like he gives an s*** about the people that come work for him. And you know what, our country is all weather. Kenny and, you know, has always been like, a home to me, right? And I have always been welcome. Welcome back right. Well, that's the vibe going out there. Yeah, that's the vibe we get when we have interviewed. All the actors that we have so far and, and some of the, the background cast members, like plywood and Danny Ellis, Interviewed a few and Billy Budd tree they all say to a man, you know, and to a person that it's a family atmosphere, and we felt that when we visited you guys at base camp, that it's totally like that. And it's so unique to see that. Even the story is told it started, its top down. All right? Like Mark barks, the guy and even he, you know, you said that years ago, I am sure new metric is grown. They have a lot more shows now, but even at the time they're still he cared, and he's like, you're a guy. Guy on our show. I know you what happened, are you good? Like he's checking in. And that's you don't see that in a lot of not enough work environment, you see that. So, that's cool. And then some places loved and in some places that would have made you persona non grata. And not, you wouldn't be asked back, but here you are. You're back on. Letterkenny your back on Shore Z. So obviously, you didn't take it personally. He just wanted to make sure you weren't leaving tap and yeah, I mean, you're not the first person to leave a job for more pay. I think everyone does it. The time, right? So that's it. But, you know, and didn't give me an idea. Like it isn't like, you know, you know. Now that I have you know, that was I don't 2017 sure, no. Like, I have gotten a lot like a lot more experience, and I am very confident at what I do now. But, you know, it is a thing of like what's more important money or, you know, working with a good crew because you can go work on a show and just not Like anybody? Yeah, you can be miserable but if you're making more money, is it worth it? Yeah. Is it worth it? And today like, you know, four years ago the answer would been money is more important today. Not at all today. It would be, no, I will take water kit. Like I will take a water carrier Shore, Z any day over any show. Yeah. Now when we were visiting you there in Sudbury up base camp and it was awesome and you told us some great stories, and I am hoping, maybe you can share a few of those with us. For example, is this Character in Letterkenny that might have been written you know, about you or that you might have influenced the character now. Just going from your by your name Brad Bradley. Who that character is that character? I don't know if it was necessarily written about me but there was some influence in there for sure. And the episode Bradley is a killer. Hmm. So that's yeah. Really. So what happened every year? Like I grew up in a pretty, like crazy. Like I had a crazy lifestyle before my life was absolute Mayhem and like, on the outside, very entertaining for others, especially like so. Oh, last year there for a second, and then bright, you're muted. You we lost you for a second and you're muted now. You're back. That's me. Touching things. It's retouch guns aren't toys. Yeah. So like what happened? Like Jared and I we'd like, because Jarrod loves like he's he will spend time watching, hockey fights on the internet. That's what he watches. He loves it, he grew up in that. And you know, this city was stool. That's better Kenny's based on is, you know, very much, the same thing as I grew up. I grew up in a small town where we fought people we got in fights. That's what we did for fun on Friday nights man. And it wasn't like, oh actually no. It's like we're going to get Drunk, and we're gonna fight people, we're gonna, you know, and then weird, you know, shake hands and leave and you know, but that's what it was. So I get every season like Jared would come up to me at like the very first, you know, thing we were talking about, he's like, okay, give me a start. The give me a story about Sarnia and okay then I will just give them this story. I knew just you know kind of laughed his ass off at it and you know kind of relate to it too. And so you know so yeah he kind of the base some stories like Joseph stories, I told him from Saturday and like lightning and Mostly my buddies to either just f****** hilarious guys and very Letterkenny ass type of upbringing, right? You know crop you know crops hearing where we take a truck and go drive through crops with beers and you know this was back in the day, right? Kind of twenty years ago. So, you know, that kind of Lifestyle, right? And every so every season now just give them another one and then sit there and give them another one and like yeah, yeah. So that's kind of how it started. So then one day he came out, and he had to script Pages like, hey man. I wrote this about. Yeah. All right. I am like okay, we dude, that's awesome. So what part of the Bradley character is about used the fighting or can? Or can you do a good Chris Rock impression? No, no I thought the Impressions afternoon. Definitely not. Very cool. So I mean talk about like what are some of the more memorable moments like on working on Letterkenny? Damn, there's so many good ones. Yeah, you know, you know what, some of the most memorable stuff is, is watching the so Dan skiing being our son, our son coordinator watching him, the progression of how Big, the fight started getting Ryan, how more rehearsal time, and how much more work was put into the site and to the fight scenes and s***, man. There's like there's a lot of good ones, you know, one of my most, you know, one of my favorite things was, when I when Michelle went to go, she had her hair blonde and I think C is in Opener, 87 areas, one of those and one of our listeners have yelling at us right now it's season this blah. Yeah, I don't remember but go on and so one of the best things like because we all work together and like we had been working together for years but like we all just talk b******* we just thought stupid s*** right? And then you know, but we don't like because we spend these like my new moments race especially have to try it when you're working out. Trailers like you get to sit down to the lot of them are just waiting for their seen, right? So you know you got a lot of downtime with a more so than you would on set but yeah, when I remember the season that KTR Michelle went to go get it. Go get her hair dyed, we're shooting and one part. We're shooting on a farm, then we had to go, the are our Tech move was over to mow Dean's, which Can't remember the city we shot Bodines in. And so we had to like, you know, split people up, right? So I ended up going to mow jeans with Katie and Chantel of the key here at the time, and we ended up like having a drive-through Sudbury. I think. Modine man, I can't remember. There's so many little cities around but yeah, that was the first time like we got to sit and cuz we spent a lot of time with you, no more. We went to Starbucks and get went to Starbucks and, you know, got to sit down and like really chat about like life and their family. Right. And Michelle's family. And you know, you know, getting to know them on a more personal level is, you know, it was pretty awesome was such a, you know, great time for me man. And right, you know one of my most memorable things is when a friend of mine, he passed away of cancer. A few years ago, and I was working on one of the winter seasons of Letterkenny when the first season with gay. Yeah. And so, we're doing this like, you know, we are putting together this like, raffle thing and like a bunch of little companies and Sarnia, had this like a silent auction, right? That's right. Word for doing a little silent auction and get together and stuff. And, so I It up getting into put a package together of Letterkenny things because I was, you know, in the middle of shooting, by the time I got home it was happening. And, so I took got one of the water Kenny shirts and like every I think from number one to like 30 signed it like the top 30 cast signed in and yeah, then you know, like carrot gave that to me and you know, everyone was so willing to like, sign it and, you know, Jared ended up giving me a bunch of money for it, you know. And you now and then I got like some other Letterkenny stuff. I can't even remember. But then some poppers as well and you know, God turn it off and yeah that you know the willingness you know of every cast member like when they step on a set of Letterkenny it is not like any other set, right? It's you know that ego kind of that ego. You Get in film. Like kind of takes a step back because, you know, this is letter. Kenny, we all work together. We all know each other, you know. Specially when it comes to someone new, it can be a bit intimidating. Sure. Right. You can even kind of see it in the castle a little bit, but like it takes about. 30 seconds for them to get comfortable and know. So that's you know those. All those things are just, you know, just wonderful memories. Yeah, I love that. Like everything. You described not. One of them had to do with shooting anything. It was all the experiences with the people which I love. And that's so awesome really quickly though. Because again, you worked on both, obviously the and obviously is not looking for any shots at him but like a culture. ER, onset. And I am base camp between the two casts and Crews. Like I think of like Letterkenny. And guys, you have been doing this for a long time with them. They all know each other really well, the very different, you know, even the story lines are very different on Letterkenny and then you get this group of like jocks at show up on shore Z, who most of my bed 0 acting background at all. They just been pulled into do be themselves at. So, what's the vibe on set between the two shows? Like Is, it was already obvious note like those will difference like not really know honestly like their what it's there. Wasn't either many because you know, all those guys you know Jared really sets a tone for his sets and I will pray and you know, same as Jacob. Jacob's tyranny as well but Jared man, he sets a tone, right? Right and everyone just has his such respect for him and you know it's like working for like almost a small business not like it's a big business but you when you work for you know local business or small business like over you know a corporation you're going to put a lot more work into the small business just because you want it to succeed. Yeah, no matter what and you and the willingness, you know, You know it's also a union thing, right? I am in the dgc and lighters, I ought to be an actress and say all involved. And you know we're just like a lot of sets. You do see members aren't going to help you know a grip or no electric or anything right and nor do they want you to write but this set man it's just no one, it's not that they don't care. It's that we all kind of trust each other and like we all know each Other so well and Jared knows everybody on this set from, you know, from the security guard to the overnight security guard to, you know, everybody in between, and he does not treat anyone different. Yeah. And I believe you 100% like in the short time we spent with Jared the energy that he brought just to the room and it was, you can't teach that. It's natural. It's and it's infectious, right? Like you just you like I got the vibe me like you want to do right by him and, and you trust him and I guess he just such a wicked energy about the dude, and he just don't want to, you know, it's like, you know, for me what like you just, you just want it to be the best, it can be where, that's not necessarily the case, for every show, right? You don't want to let him down, right? Yeah. And that's it. And he just gives you that he just paid like, he has she's pretty patient to, right? And, you know, it's you don't want to be there go like? Yeah, this is like, go home. Yeah, right as well. Don't have the patience for that. He's like to be here if not f*** off. Ya. And it's also, you know, that positivity that everyone brings its hard, not to be negative on that row. And honestly, since the one thing I do know about, Out every year, it just gets from everyone in the crew. Specially the office to like the author shows makes everything. So then they just make it so easy for us by especially as an add man. Like they work so hard and that like, is not always acknowledged on its own, shut it to the office. Hmm. Yeah. Yeah. You know, Tessa and everybody like Alina like everybody. They're like, they Ismay. Honestly they made my job on Shores in season 2 so easy because they just keep getting like adding finding ways to do better or find it easier ways to communicate or find, you know, ways to help. And it's everybody just kind of helps each other and you know, we're other shows that's not necessarily the case, right? Sure. So here I got a few rapid questions for you spill the He's on base camp, which of the actors is most likely to be, you know, in their, in their trailer, listening to the music, the loudest by themselves. Oh my God, Harlan, Harlan really go out solo. Yeah, okay, cool. Which of the actors is most likely to have no other actors in their trailers. So you know, the bharathi solo dolo, of course. Famous do2. Like she always had the guy had always peopled in there too, which was always awesome, which would oh, oh yeah. Which of the actors would rather be like sitting in their trailer alone, unlike not bothered. John nasty murasky of course. Oh yeah. Really. Okay. He's awesome. And he just sits in his trailer and when he says, Go, he gets up, and he goes and just and yeah, yeah you'd mentioned one during our visit. Like one of the you might have also been the inspiration for the three gyms you want to talk about that real quick. Yeah, Jared did. I talked to Jared about this one? You guys are on set I am like hey can I tell him how you stole you know my likeness and you know like he's like yeah go ahead. The gym thing comes from me and my buddies growing up. Like so we had our buddy had this uncle and for some reason he just called everyone Jim, hmm, no idea where it came from why you did it buddy. He had been doing it for years. So you know, we started call, you know, and we looked up to him like, you know, we're in Grade 9, and he was calling each gym and like whatever I won't say the name, but we have go over there. Folk dudes and blah, blah. And so we just started like mocking him a little bit, but then we just started doing it. And then like everybody that I know we all call each other gym. And so on time like selling Jared this story about these two buddies and their brothers, and we're you know these guys would have liked they're these guys. Parents would go out to dinner, and they would call everyone, they knew, and say, hey, my parents are gone for the weekend come over. We're having a party that in, like an hour into the Party, by their pairs would come home from dinner, right? Because they're just that for dinner. Sure. So, and these guys are like, these guys are some of the toughest f****** dudes. I know. And so on, they like were all partying together and all we hear is like, what's that? Jim He's dead to me. Jump like, yeah, you heard me Kim, and they start scrapping each other. So f****** hard, and they're two brothers. So we let them do it. Then one f****** have shocked that a tiny just here, the other one like over, and he's like, how did you like that gem? Like we're dying laughing. We're you like can't even help him because her f****** laughing. So hard to guys beating the s*** out of each other calling each other gym. You know, those are these are stories out like weather stories. I told Jared and yeah, then all of a sudden, I just saw call she one day as from Shore Z season one and just said Kim wonjun to, and Jim's ago. That's so good. So you just never know what story you're telling Jarrod might will end up in this in the season of either Letterkenny or Shore Z that's it. And that's it. Well, that's also, that's small town, like life, right? That's what we did, right? We scrapped, and we drank, and we scrapped, and yeah, yeah, so yeah, I was pretty f****** funny. Amazing. I have got some questions from our listeners. When we told him that you're going to be on, they were all excited. First one here is from a buddy Adrian from Maine. He was one of the people who came up to Sudbury with us. He said, Brad is great meeting you at base camp. Thank you so much for all the time you spent with us in the stories. You shared your true beauty as a sober person myself to you. Has in. I know the struggles of working in and around the industry with socializing over alcohol is commonplace he works at a brewery, and he's sober and RAM. Yeah any tips or tricks you found on getting and staying sober in the industry. You can already talked about some of those word of advice for those thinking of getting sober or those starting their journey and trying to stay that way. Sure, man, I got so much advice. I could sit here for hours, but I know one thing is, when I got sober I took a better year and a half Woof film to figure out what I wanted to do, other than film because they told me to change one thing and that's everything. So, I did. Yeah. And you know, I just tried other things, and they just didn't work man. And, you know, I tried going back to film pretty early and then I just ran into everyone. I used to use with by off of dealt to like I was in, I was in a pretty bad and I had to quit that a day, one of shooting. And so then I went back, you know, I went back to school, then I happen to get an opportunity to work on a Netflix film. That hasn't come out yet, which is crazy. Hello called Ivy, and it was shooting 45 minutes outside of Sarnia and Grand band. Ontario. Hmm. And with someone, you know, I never use with or, you know, drank with it was, you know, first, his first name, shot scenes. Ryan Highland. He's a first Adia to Toronto, and I was my first full experience working on a show clean. Right for me. And like, I, when I went there, I just new this is where I needed to be, but, how do I, how do I do this without, you know, you know, running it to anybody. Like first off I had to take that year, right? Yeah. Just figure you got comfortable with me, right? Because I So uncomfortable being me for so long. Sure. And once I did you know and I like I do the 12-step thing you don't have not everyone has to do it I do it works for me doesn't necessarily work for the world right but you know once I went on my journey and you know figured out some things and learn to love myself and learned a few tricks like knowing that stealing the field feelings aren't facts. That was a big one for me. What? I will think of Brad Miller is none of my business. That's a big one for me but you know, you know they say stay away from people places and things. I had to eventually just figure out, you know, I had to go back to Sudbury, you know, I will tell you that. Sure, as you season two was my first time back in Sudbury sober. Well, and it turns out, I am the problem not Sudbury is, I am the problem. When I put myself in situations and, you know, I Some type of reservation that maybe I can have one. And for me, I can't write its, you know. And, you know, I just have to learn on my own. Oh, North Bay is not the problem, sudbury's, not the problem. I am the problem on name in it and I decide to hang out with and do the things that I think are okay. And which my brain will tell me, hey, you can do this and, you know, I just have to take, you know, I have such a good group of people in my Life now that, you know, a support system, right? I always have a support system and then exit plan, right? Yeah. I never go to concerts without driving myself, right? Yeah. You know, it's all the little things that, you know, I was taught along the way and, you know, since I got somewhere, I have never been like happier in my life, right? And it's the first time I have ever been happy in my life, right? Let us just fight despite the things I have gone to do. Like, I have had moments Some of you know this is awesome but never truly just happy with me being me, right? Yeah, today, I am probably one of the most content people just. It takes a lot to bother me, right? Because, you know, I just, there're things I know about, you know, going through that, you know, I know today and, you know, just starts with, you know if you can't drink, if you don't have it in your hand, right? Something so simple, but It's makes sense, just one day at a time to write. And you know, the sometimes if I was really hurting and I wanted to do drugs or drink, I would be like, okay, just plan to do it tomorrow, right? And don't do it today. Planet tomorrow, then when I woke up the next day, same thing over and over again, until finally, I just didn't have that desire, you know, anymore. We're today, I don't, I don't have a desire to do any of those things, but sometimes I can feel left out. Sure. Yeah, welcome. That's man on your sobriety. I mean we're proudly and you should. Yeah. And I love how open you are about eggs. I think that it even our format helps others. It may be listening. Going through to know that possible. So, good on you, man. That's fast brother. I appreciate it. Hadrian had a follow-up, he's a drummer, and he wanted to know your punk rock hardcore, tats are amazing rancid and Minor Threat. If he recalls, what are you talking about? Some of your favorite bands and maybe you know some of your favorite shows you have gone to Oh man, s*** and the dag all abortions and of out of Vancouver Island, or Victoria. I love them. I grew up with them, Minor Threat, rancid teenage ball rocket is like a Ramones type. You know, band. I just went and saw them with the queers, which are another favorite band of mine. I love the forgot Rebels at a Hamilton. Oh s***. Manny. Oh man, that's tough. You right to the folk Blues Funk right now. So I am like my other favorite bands, Bridge City centers, and I am listening to the guy right now called, yes ma'am. And he's like from the deep south of Louisiana and just his lyrics are unbelievable, man. And just, yeah, it's but my jaw. My genre has changed. Even since I got clean, like, I don't listen to, you know, GG Allin anymore, if you don't know who he is. I am up, I, and I am sorry if you look them up because, yeah, he is, you know, just at the tie I live by his, you know, scum, f*** traditions and just being an f*** embracing that drugged-out drunk. F****** lifestyle. Right yesterday, I listened to some like, you know, my music taste has changed a little bit, not too much. Hey y'all if we could pick. Oh this is from Jeff and Main if he could pick anyone for a Guest spot on our Letterkenny or Shores e, who would it be? And what would be their role? Be time to be a little creative here? It's a good question so sorry that I guess bought on your scroll icon on letter Kenny or Shore Z. Oh, f*** character role. I have had, I have had one for so long. Toe tap. Man, not a pony. That's a name that comes up so much. And in the circles around here, like I have seen him like he just did a workshop in a friend of mine who's an actor attended his workshop and couldn't stop like raving about him. I just saw him invent or not bandits in from Faking. A murder us to Stone. Yeah film and yeah I loved like he's a hell of an actor. He's an amazing, man, he was. He's just like one of my like I have worked with them so much and just he's a dude, I like I respect so much, and he's so f****** funny. Yeah, you know, you know such a different way the letter K. I would love to see the contrast of like, right is angry Italian type. Well, he could have easily been one of the Paula Jetties or something. Yeah, it's too f****** ugly, though. It's amazing. Great answer it. See here. Tobias from the Missouri. He's asking. What's, who's your favorite comedian? Is my favorite comedian. Okay. Oh my God, I can't believe I forget his name right now, and I was just thinking about him s*** man. That's a hard one for me to answer. Well, you think of that? Yeah, he's also there a couple of follow-ups, your dream project would be a dream project for you to work on my dream projects man. Would That's my own right? Your punch documenting. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Doing that. Doing I have another script that I am working on that it's better. It's better to cook. That cooks for death row. That I don't work, not in doing some research interested. It's a pretty until I get it. No, it went through so much about it, right? Like about, you know, how Cooks started like why they hired anyone to For death row in the first place, right? And so then I was really interested in it. There's this poem by Canadian poet and his name's Shane poison. Yeah, and open. They call a spoken-word guy, right? Yeah. Yeah. And so he does this poem called restaurant and that's where I kind of started looking into it. And start researching, I was like, oh man, this is just as wild and so that I would love to adapt that to film. I like that concept. Yeah but soon as you said like oh that's there's so many angles as so much like possibility and depth into a full concept like that. So do you like doing storyline stuff over like because you talked about doing documentary stuff as well? Like we're what style or what I would rather do, like storytelling like documentary. It would be based on real-life but I want to do it in a film. Like I love like No working with cameras and you know, helping having cameras, tell the story. And, you know, I really love that part of our worry documentaries. Don't necessarily get that because you should what you should do. Yeah, we're using the camera to, you know, transition and to tell different parts of the story rather than just the characters, absolutely. A couple of last questions here from our listeners. One here will get serious and then a little lighter. Your thoughts on this egg? Eg a strike and The Stance of actra. How does this kind of effect? What, what's happening up here? It does it, and this is from Mike in New Jersey. Yeah, it does absolutely like, I just went on the hot list before the Directors Guild of Canada and it's not great like it, you know, there's so many things shot in Toronto that are American over half of them that aren't going into production, right? Yeah. And you know from on one Side. This is our busy season. Yeah, this is when we work, right? So, you know, depending on where you're at, you know, financially and what you're doing. Like, I live in. I don't live in try. I choose to live in Sarnia. I go work Toronto and Sudbury but you know, for me like and kind of Being Sober our pre cheap lifestyle, like I don't cost much money. I don't have kids, I don't know. Quite, you know, tell me about it. Sounds wonderful. You know, I don't cost like five dollars a day, right for me right? Like where if your overhead is right there, you need it especially in today's market. Oh it's perfect crazy man. So you know but if you have a family you have two heads like your Fox. It's true hits, that's it. It's hard because of, you know, and they, I agree 100% with why they're striking. And what's going on, it's just interesting how it affects other the other unions, right? There's a cash, you know, the DDC like you know you have I oxy being affected the DVC acti, something in Quebec like they're being affected and just the amount of people that are affected by the two unions, it's so much bigger than the actors and, you know, the actor and you, you know the amount of Factors that aren't getting paid times a money each day. I know, I know Tony nap will, for instance, like I know he paints when he's not working, right? He goes and paints houses. Yeah, you know, I have a, I have a couple side hustles, you know, so, you know, that's kind of helping me sustain, but, you know, as far as, you know, when most of us are on unemployment because, you know, we take gigs and in between will get unemployment. I think it's going to effect the next eight to nine months because people aren't going to a get their hours when they are off during December. Yeah. They're not going to get that on that money from unemployment which I kind of rely on a little bit. I guess that I cost like five six dollars a day so you know that's not it doesn't affect me as much as you know someone else that you know has to take care of a family or have a partner or to move in Toronto, right? It's wildly. So my name Works in the industry where he works on a lot of like American things. They worked on Titans and reach her and stuff like that, and he was saying similar stuff. He's like, oh yeah, we're hard. Shut down. All anything I have involved in, I am out, but he talked about it to about, you know, it's much bigger than what you just see in front of you. And you example, use, he's like there are guys who don't like food trucks, who exclusively supports apps, like, they will show up on set and that's where they make all their money even. They're not working because there're no sets therefore they. Can't make money like it's so the reach of this shutdown is Way Beyond just those 1% millionaires at the top. Its everyone underneath it is being hit by this and it needs the attention and I get it's just it's f*****. It's so yeah it is wild and you know I understand that you know like you know Spotify Pacer artist why can't Netflix pay their you know, residuals to their actors, right? Like I don't get it as much as you know, I am sure there's two ton more stuff. I don't get I but I do know the effect that lots of people are on vacation now, lots of, you know, on the positive note, when do we get? When do we get a summer off, right? Never turn out, right? The fact is Works going to come. Come back again. It's just a matter of waiting, right? Having that patience and you know for me like I can have a little more patience than others. So write some people can't, she's off work for this long, it's just not feasible to them, you know, for me, I am like, oh cool, like I am literally working in a food truck right now. Yeah, you know, today I just got off today and, you know, that's like I have a son that I do photography to write. I have that side hustle and a lot of people do to right. So for the purely Canadian, Production. So like, for example Letterkenny or Shores the are they affected? Because that's all Canadian and right now it's, you know, it's really hard to say. I know motorhead's is going on right now. There's a show coming up in Sudbury and August September. I know they held off on hiring any actors to they wanted some sag actors, oh eyesight. And I am not really sure how actra is going to react to Sag, like in the next, you know. No 10 days from now. Like, is Sag going to stand like is actress standing was sag. I got ya, Lex on solidarity it rights? Yeah. They're going to support. Yeah. And then the DDC I wonder, you know what's going to happen to them, right? What are we as a like? There isn't too much information out there. So, you know, I kind of been following it but at the same time, I need to live life and sure. No, you know, like I said I can't do other things, right? And you know, I love film. But you know, I might desire is to, you know, become a director or first aid to you one day, but you know, today's thought that day, right? And so yeah. Yeah, it is what it is vant. Last question from our listener to this is from our friend, Aaron in Chicago. Let us say our first day on Letterkenny or short as he is an actor. Crew member was the best advice you can give them in order to vibe in the culture and the community onset. Welcome to ladder Kenny Yeah, that's it. That's it. That's it, man. That's perfect. It's that, that's a, that's all. That's always say. I just, I one of my favorite things is, like, Katie Trav when like a new cast member worked on, come on right through there. Was that, that, that phrase. Welcome to Letterkenny was, was powerful, right? Ad is like, oh, I am not on a film set, right? I am out. I am in water. Can Right now and right and that kind of ease and you just walk around and you know that energy is you can feel that energy like it's very vibrant throughout the whole entire set from the trans, the person that picks you up to you know you meet me as a fourth ad. You will meet me at base camp. Hopefully are you know, I am like, you know I am in a pretty good mood most of the times right to that when you know, and Jared's usually always there like you will go up and meet like when there's a new cast member on set, that hasn't been on set, before he goes up, right up to them and knock on a door and shoot the s*** with them. Right? And, you know, that he's right there. It's, you know, going back to like, it's Jared and Jared's. You know how Jared is. It's that welcome to Letterkenny, and you're truly welcome, right? Were, you know, you know, it's there's a lot of (fakeness) in this. Industry, and a lot of egos and that ego, you know, the ego doesn't work that well on Letterkenny writing. Now with you. And you know how I know how Jared you know I kind of have an idea how Jarrod decides to like hire people, and he doesn't always hire people based on their action ability. He hires them based on for some out there like yeah, yeah, character. Yeah, like I know a lot of guys from surely, you have stopped it. Jerry about this, a lot of guys from Shore Z. He hired him. Just based on how they fought, right? And if there's get home in about it and shook hands, after those are the guys, those are The Scrappers he wanted he didn't want, you know guys that were complete assholes, right? Like you know you knew like you saw those that type right and all that all the like you know our everyone on the Bulldogs and anybody on the Iceman. And that's on Shore Z, they all come from, they all have that same general. Like, I don't even know how to buy that, you know, they're just respectable very, very respectable people, right? Just, you know, and, you know, want to do a good job and yeah, it's friggin awesome, man. That's great, love it. So yeah, we're that were, you know, at the end of our listener, question around. So just have a few more questions around the table and then, and we will let you go, man, we really appreciate all the time. You have given us And right now we're getting hit by the storm. That was the came through Sonia. I think we are. My apologies for running out that we were very much. An attorney do watch at the things were going sideways quite quickly and pretty gray sof. Seriously, I got was in that burning. It was crazy. Yeah. Matt it's coming for you, man. So anyway, Matt, I will let you ask your question. Yeah, yeah. I know, I know I was getting ready to Rob management such a pleasure. My ass is to everyone. I mean, as fans and Oh I am sorry I got asked two questions one. I am super curious first off when we arrived at set that what 12 of us or whatever role in, did you guys know we are coming and what was the chatter afterwards, and we like this random group of Super Fan shows up and chirps you guys all and chatting for like it must have been some laughs like who the f*** are these guys? And what's happening? Absolutely. All right, I think too. You know, when you know it's All right, honestly, I wanted to be one. Yeah. Well, it's okay though it like, for me, it's okay. I am okay with it. It's hard because there are on whether Kenny, it doesn't run like a regular set, right? Like we do like and when something gets like a wrench gets thrown in it. Yeah, here's my God. F*** God damn it and you're like who are these f****** guys and No. You know, but as soon as we met, yeah, like I thought about, you know, I thought about like you know, right after I met you guys, man, like because you know, my life right? Am I find a gratitude in life a lot, right? Like gratitude is what keeps me sober it? What it's what keeps me consents in life and you know I was thinking about it for a bit right after I met you guys I was like man. These guys are vacationing at my work, right? That's right. That's 100% right way to put that. Yeah, it'd be like somebody coming like to my office and going, it's really cool. What you do here, Mike? What I am just working? Yeah, literally, this is my day, like this. What I get paid to do, you know, it's that thing. Like, you know, I sometimes forget I forget the 95% of amazingness that we get to work out with this crew. This cast that and the people on it, like everyone involved because we can focus on the five percent. That's not going our way right or something Spock. Stop right. Where. You know when I did sit down and see you guys in like your eyes like kind of light up, right? And being like holy s***. This is awesome. I am like yeah, this is awesome. Awesome. And you know, and that like that instant like as soon I met you guys like oh you guys are coming, you pay to come to my work like then I thought about it for a sec. I am like f*** I am such an ungrateful bastard. Oh my keys, my kids I like this is amazing man I am like I am pretty sweet job right? And you know being in Sarnia like there's not many there's like five of us that work in film in Sarnia. And you know, I got a like I don't talk about my job a lot because it sounds like bragging because most people work in them. Plants and you know, I try to keep humble. Try to be as humble as possible. I am not always like that. But then when you know, I got to see you guys and just found out where you guys a lot of them came from. Yeah I was like wow. Yeah white you guys came from an f*** like you guys wildly blue or even our minds like we're a four and a half hour drive from out there but like as far as California where the holy you are just as blown away. Yeah. Yeah. And so you know that Gratitude of like you know like it's cool. It feels like you're a celebrity at their right and you know makes you feel good like you know if I try to treat people Everyone equal, right? No matter who you are even if you're in my way. So I will so like, once I sit down, gotta talking. Oh my oh, you got his are ya? Know, I am grateful. I am bringing people. You guys are here, man. And so, yeah. So I got talked to a few of them after like, I thought Hotel afternoon. Just yeah, it was pretty cool man. That sounds good. I am glad I hope it all came across well, and we were so grateful, everyone's time because it was a treat for us and which, I mean, you kind of half answered my other question. I asked everyone, right? Like from Isis fans, and we were being referred to as super fans on set, which was hilarious to us, but I guess we have a podcast, and we travel. So I guess it's it fits, but we know the reach of the show. We understand what. Letterkenny? What Shores, E Beyond just being Funny shows had meant to a lot of people, right? It's really like it really got a lot of people through some s*** then the pandemic, things like that. Like how is it meant and answers in any way that you see fit, but what does it meant to you? To be a part of the show shows, man? It means the world to me, you know, there is a family Dynamic there, right? And for someone, that's always had a hard time with fitting in and family and stuff like that and it's something else man. Its it is hard to describe like, you know, like I said I don't need the end of the day. I don't need crazy stories for Jared and tell him. Crazy stories. I don't need anything because everyone's just walking happy to be there. And, you know, you when you're in Letterkenny, you're just, you're just part of, it doesn't matter if it's your first season or your, you know, Twelve 11th season man, you're just a part of it and the doors, the doors always open for you to leave if you don't like it, right? And that's the thing. But you know and you know when that door opens it stays open, right? They hire they bring back like they do not have to buy. Any means put me up in a hotel, pay me per diem because they could find someone else in this in the city to do it, and they call me, right? And that's a big deal and not that Means that it's not just about money, it's about you know, keeping that family together at you know and with film like that expense it's not always sometimes it's better to you know, and maybe I am talking myself out of a job but you know you can do. I don't think I don't know. That's never worked on a show, or they can hire someone that knows assist. No, see actors is comfortable with them and just treated very well. Very, very well man. So you know, and they're shooting the shooting, the hours are awesome too for a film set. The hours are friggin sweet sauce. That's awesome pogchamp. Thanks, Brad your f****** dude.
