Mini Bio (1)
Carey turned to the creative world at a very early age, writing and drawing his own graphic novels. This would later serve Carey well, in that, he learned shot composition, lighting, and dramatic story-telling. While the idea of being a comic-book artist slowly faded away through the years, writing did not. Carey always turned to writing, through the means of short stories and novels for artistic expression. Marrying the idea of telling a story through a visual medium returned to Carey again at the age of sixteen after seeing Pulp Fiction for the first time, but this time through a screenplay format.
Carey has honed his writing throughout the years since becoming entranced by films by studying some great modern day writers such as Elmore Leonard and Ed McBain. In 2001, he graduated from the New York Film Academy in New York City, bringing his dream of becoming a filmmaker and expressing himself visually one step closer. In New York, the valuable lesson of using the most powerful medium of our time for expression was greatly learned and appreciated. At the Academy, Carey worked a rigorous schedule, going to class from 8- ten hours a day on weekdays, and shooting short films on the weekends. All together, Carey wrote and directed five short films, and worked on sixteen others in New York City alone.
"Human Wreckage," Carey's final student film went on to win a Special Commendation from the Canadian International Independent Film Festival (CIAFF) and has also screened at the United Millenium Film Festival in Toronto. Another student film, "Going All the Way," also premiered at the United Millenium Film Festival, and also played at the 2nd Annual Focus Niagara Film Festival in Niagara Falls. The most accomplished out of all of Carey's work would be the first film that Carey made after graduating from the New York Film Academy, entitled, "I Tremble Waiting." This short film cost only thirty-five dollars and premiered at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival in New York City. It went on to pick up three awards; Best Video Production, Most Original Entry, and Best Dialogue (script), from the Society of Canadian Cine Amateurs annual film and video contest (S-C-C-A).
