Jeremy LaLonde is a Toronto based filmmaker. By the age of nineteen he had already won the Lighthouse Festival Theatre’s Young Playwright’s Award three times, and then went on to study filmmaking at Niagara College where he made his award-winning short film Selfless, Cold, & Composed. He co-founded the Ontario Visual Heritage Project an award-winning documentary series that explores the history of Ontario, the series airs on TVO, and a decade later the project continues successfully without him.
Jeremy’s career started as an editor where he’s worked on television series such as Carlawood, Wipeout Canada, Princess, You Gotta Eat Here, and the independent films Bolly Double and Saturday.
As the goal had always been to work on his own projects, Jeremy wrote and directed the award-winning short film Mrs. & Mrs. Moosewood followed up by his award-winning short film for Bravo!, Hoff’s New Direction, before directing his first feature film, The Untitled Work of Paul Shepard. It has screened internationally at film festivals and was given a limited theatrical run in Canada, in addition to playing on Super Channel. In 2011 Jeremy was nominated for Best Director at the Canadian Comedy Awards, in addition to being recognized by the Toronto International Film Festival in 2010 with the Irving Avrich Award for Emerging Talent in Canadian Film. Sex After Kids is his second feature film as a writer/director and will be released in 2013.
Jeremy lives in Toronto with his wife and two small children, and continues to work in film and television as an editor while developing a slate of his own television and feature film projects.
Oh, and he does this podcast thing now too.
