Who would have thought in 2019 we’d be where we are right now, at home in self-isolation dealing with the global pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus. As a creative and extrovert, it’s especially hard to create in any way, but when you’ve got the gear and the experience you can make something meaningful like the short film “Once Upon a Pandemic”.
“Once Upon a Pandemic” is the story of a young girl Maddie, self-isolated in her home during a global pandemic without help from her quarantined Mom. With the help of her Dad, Maddie uses her strength and resilience to overcome a heartbreaking twist as only a child can.
The film stars new comer Maddie Murphy-Northcott (my daughter!), Gemini Award Winning actor Kristin Booth (The Kennedys After Camelot, Young People F**king, Foolproof) and me, Ryan Northcott (Mystery, Alaska, Tribal, The Beach Boys: An American Family).
The film was written, directed, produced, shot, and edited by me, too.
