A day in the mind of Geoffrey Oswald Dodd, a seemingly kind, gentle and sane high school teacher. As we follow Geoffrey through the course of a typical school day we gain an eerie insight into the darkest corners of his soul and beyond. Beneath the carefully constructed veneer of Geoffrey Dodd lies something wretched, insidious and foul rotting him from the inside out. Written by
Although never seen on screen a four page love letter written in Geoffrie's voice was created and placed in an envelope which appears prominently in the film. The letter, addressed to an underage student, sheds more light on Geoffrie's twisted fantasies and his inevitably doomed future. See more »

Richard Powell , Brampton, Ont., Canadian Boy Makes good!
Something super-toxic must be pulsating in Brampton , Ont. Canada'a water these days (could be the cosmic energy of it's popular, award winning & beloved, arts/hockey-supporting mayor: Susan Fennell)...it seems that just like the convergence of star power that in the late '80s and '90s centred on Scarborough which produced such diverse bright lights as Mike Myers, Jim Carrey, The Barenaked Ladies and Paul Tracy, just to mention a few Brampton (aka Bramladesh, B-town, and Brownton ) is the hometown or hot-bed residence of a new wave of celebrities such as ; (Metal Queen:) Lee Aaron, Russell Peters, Tyler Labine, Michael Cera, Paulo Costanza , Shawn and Aaron Ashmore, Keshia Chanté, (comedian) Scott Thompson, Richard Marsella ,(Broken Social Scene member) Jason Collett, Vivita, Lewis Mercer, Mike Burry, Dave Lei, Brandon & Brittany (or is that Britney) Watt...and 'er, Myself. Well 'Worm' film-maker: Richard Powell might as well join this talented lot (Hell, me too!). My date at a preview screening (Vivita, actually ) was very surprised to learn that it was a Canadian, short & not a feature from a major studio. Powell is on the right track by hiring pros and spending a crap-load of money on this short. If I were a hep, influential producer ( which I ain't; either her or influential), I'd take this to a Major Producer (to get to someone like Jack Nicholson; say) to be made as a Major Studio feature (like the filmmakers of 'Sky Captain' did). Powell's (and Zach Green's) insight into psychological horror film-making is commendable. If this trend & growth of home-grown talent keeps up; B-town should be a viable contender for being the 'premier' film-making capital of Canada!..Let's hope all of the above mention talent could stay in Canada, join up into a super-cinematic think-tank & create some amazing feature films that''s blow the world away...as for Richard Powell & his associate: Zach Green..Keep your eyes on these two filmmakers, genre-lovers ...they are a-movin' on up!
