Over the last two years, Viv was at the helm of four films: the award winning horror-comedy hit PORTAL TO HELL!!! starring the late great Roddy Piper, and the MacDonald Hall Trilogy of feature films GO JUMP IN THE POOL, THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING AT MACDONALD HALL, and THE WIZZLE WAR. The trilogy will be premiering on NETFLIX in 2017.
Recently, Vivieno wrapped as director/executive producer on the fresh new half-hour sketch comedy pilot HUMANTOWN for CBC, and in 2016 he directed the epic 2-part episode of the Emmy Award winning series ODD SQUAD guest staring The Kids In The Hall.
