WHO WE ARE
Born and raised in North Bay, Ontario. Darren started in the arts with musical theatre in 2006 and has been involved in nearly 50 productions ending in August 2018. In 2010, Darren was exposed to his first one screen role in a short film called “The Autumn Girl”. Since then Darren has taken part in several other films in Northern Ontario such as “Coconut Hero” and “Stage Fright”. In late 2013, Darren was asked to record a live musical for a local theatre company. By doing this, it sparked an idea, which now today is Summersby Productions. Following that, Garrett Ryan was looking for assistance in creating a ‘little’ film project. After a few years of off and on, summer 2015 came, Darren took Summersby Productions and produced a feature film (which Garret pitched to him in 2013) with a crew of all teenagers called “Undertaking Red”. This film started the spark of what will be the film production aspect of Summersby Productions. Since then Darren has filmed Weddings, created promos and films. In Darren’s high school days he competed in the Skills Canada competition receiving gold at provincials and representing Team Ontario for Film and Television at Nationals. In September 2016, Darren started his post-secondary education at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario in the Honours Bachelor of Film and Television program and bring his work to Oakville and the GTA area.
