My name is Connor McAulay and I have been an avid fan of both film and television since 1993. Personally I am a hobbyist historian and a fan of music from all over the globe.
I Graduated Humber College in 2015 with a BFA in Film and Media Production. Over the course of four years, the program stressed acquiring a thorough understanding of both practical and theoretical aspects of the Film and Television industry.
During my time at Humber College, I worked on multiple student shorts in various capacities. Most notably I wrote, produced and directed a five minute short titled 'Ice Blocks,' acted as the audio recordist, boom--op, foley artists and sound editor for a twenty minute short titled 'The Beauty that Remains,' and finally, conceptualized and wrote both the pilot and pitch for an hour long television drama.
Since graduating, I have worked as 1st A.D. on an indie feature titled 'Smoke It.' while going into my fourth year working in both the Grip and Set Decoration departments as a permit for IATSE 873. During this time I have spent many months working on film sets, absorbing all aspects and observing the inner workings of the more professional film and television production environment.
Currently my focus is on writing, as my goal is to one day write for film and television. I have a portfolio of several projects - both television pilots and feature films - that grows larger by the week.
I am always seeking fresh eyes and helpful tips.
