Dave Stewart A grad of Humber College’s Film & TV Production program, Dave Stewart sketches about movies, fakes a monthly horoscope with his near-sighted 3rd Eye, and interviews movie types for The Buzz. He also writes about horror flicks for www.RetroSlashers.net and sometimes Rue Morgue Magazine. His Buzz writing dates back to its first issue—an overview of emerging independent filmmakers. Dave provides commentary and reviews on a freelance basis for CBC Radio, and he was a writer for Cathay Pacific’s inflight entertainment publication, Studio CX. 26 episodes of And Yet I Blame Hollywood, his Buzz movie review-in-cartoon-format, were broadcast nationally on CBC TV’s ZeD. Florid, one of the short films he directed and co-created with Rob MacDonald, was the recipient of the 2004 Viewer’s Choice Award at the Reel Island Film Festival. An ad man/writer at Graphcom Group, Dave is one half of Chimp, a ponk rock duo with MacDonald making up the other 50%. Their debut CD is Thundercrack!. Dave and Rob are at work on their latest movie project, Shoot or Be Shoot. In August, Dave is also curated and participating in Arthole, an art show at The Guild featuring interesting artwork by interesting Islanders.
