Check This...'Treevenge'

Treevenge is a short film from Yer Dead Productions Inc. The creative team that produced & directed the notorious Grindhouse trailer, Hobo with a Shotgun. The film was conceived during the filming of Hobo by producer Rob Cotterill & director Jason Eisener who fielded the idea back and forth in their few moments of spare time. Put on the back burner while dealing with the successes of Hobo, Jason & Rob decided to start shooting Treevenge while continuing to work on drafts of a Hobo feature with their writing partner John Davies. So as John continued to work on the feature, Rob & Jason wrote and began the planning of Treevenge. The shooting began in November and continued on weekends as cast & crew were available. The shoot took a total of ten days and ended in late February 2008. Post production started immediately and the film was completed in June 2008.

The film stars Trailer Park Boys regulars Jonathan Torrens & Sarah Dunsworth, as well as Lexx creator/ writer - Lex Gigeroff.
