I’ve thrown up some of the new headshots I just got taken by Karolina Turek. Some of my favourites are up on the main pages, but there’s also a few more up in the Stills section. And I spent some time re-editing my demo reel, so a brand new version of that including a new scene can be viewed under Videos.
Got a new video posted. Did this one back in the summer. Directed by Daniel Nicolini who is just about to graduate from Vancouver Film School. You can check out his site at http://www.danielenicolini.com/
Welcome to brendanriggs.com. I’m going to go ahead and call the site launched even though I’m sure I will continue to re-edit the About section for the next few years, bouncing back and forth between feeling it needs to be less pretentious or more professional. Decisions. Anyway enjoy the site.
