Colin Brunton was born in Toronto in 1955. After directing short films including The Last Pogo and The Mysterious Moon Men of Canada, Brunton produced the feature films Roadkill and Highway 61, both directed by Bruce McDonald. As the Executive Director of the Feature Film Project at the Canadian Film Centre, he green-lit and exec produced first-feature films including Rude and Cube.
As a hired-gun, Brunton has line-produced dozens of projects including the features Hedwig & The Angry Inch, Foolproof, How She Move (a Sundance darling in 2007); and TV series including Puppets Who Kill, Our Hero, and An American in Canada. He's currently producing the TV series Little Mosque on the Prairie; directing and producing a multi-format sequel to The Last Pogo called The Last Pogo Jumps Again, Chacha Cha? Cha (with several other "guest directors"); and just completed directing the psychedelic and demanding concert film Duality of Self, featuring mysterious Texas musician Jandek. Duality of Self will premiere at the SXSW Music and Film Festival in March, 2007.
And if that ain't enough, he's also developing two TV series with partner-in-crime Jim Mauro: the surreal sketch comedy series T-Bag & Bonkers' Half-Hour of Power, and the starkly morbid reality series The Grim Sweeper.
