The NEXT great Canadian Director! Action, Drama, Romance, suspense and even Comedy! I promise you, fellow film-lovers, that this man can do it all. I've seen only a portion of his work and I was so blown away by it that I had to take it easy for a minute.
I really want to say that he's underground or that he's 'on the rise' but that really doesn't do justice. Let's be honest, phrases like that sound outright lame. He's not underground because he can't make it into the mainstream; he's not independent because a studio wouldn't' pick him up (they'd salivate at the thought, lol) The reason that he's still in the shadows is because the mainstream literally isn't ready for such greatness. To be outright exposed to Duke Panache would be equivalent to getting a heart attack from being quickly submersed into cold water (it's happened). Like a stir-fry, the public needs to be warmed up before it can sizzle in the heat. This heat, is DUKE PANACHE.
So, ladies and gentlemen, get ready. I'd love to tell you what to get ready for or how, but all I can tell you is that it's Classified. Yes, that's right. Info on his latest and greatest project shrouded in so much mystery that even project itself is referred to as such. Rumor has it that's it's just recently begun a long post-production process. A project of such magnitude will take a long time to complete, but the wait will be far more than worth it. Heck, I bet the film is already done and THE DUKE is just teasing us by slowly releasing small tiny bits of information. One thing I do know for sure is that the final image WILL be seen in 1080p. Gorgeous! Not even The Offline can afford to shoot 1080p. I can't wait. I have to go clean up, now. this is just too exciting for me!!
