About the Director:
Aaron Kurmey is an award winning filmmaker from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Aaron has been making movies since he was in grade school, first using borrowed VHS cameras, and editing the movies using a pair of VCRs. He started production on his first feature film, HOODOO VOODOO when he was only 18 years old, using his university scholarships and savings to fund the movie. It was the best film school he could ever dream of. After his first feature, he experimented with several short films, producing two award winners: the Korean action movie inspired HIGH SCHOOL BRAWL, and military sci-fi short, THE OVERTURE. He then produced his second feature film, an ultra low budget sci-fi, alien invasion movie, BATTLE EARTH.
Following a brief tour on the festival circuit, where BATTLE EARTH won a handful of awards, and international distribution, Aaron and his partners at his production company, Rambunxious Entertainment got to work on their third and most ambitious feature film yet, THOUSAND YARD STARE, a World War II movie set in North Africa about post-traumatic stress disorder.
