Who the hell are we?

Egomaniacal Productions Ltd. is a film production company based in Calgary, Alberta with an office in Venice, California and is owned and operated by Brian King and Michael Dargie.

In the spring and summer of 2016 EMP started crewing up for our first short film production “SUNDOWNERS” as a proof of concept for creating high-production-value projects on a microbudget in Calgary. Throughout 2016 – 2019 we are focusing on creating four feature films based around a shared action-horror universe: RACER X, Cerberus, Girls Night Out and Grimson.


Brian King’s knowledge of movies is encyclopedic. He spent several years in the trenches of Hollywood, freelancing for Cinematic Happenings Under Development, as well as its sister site, the much-beloved but now-defunct horror movie web site Creature Corner and spent 12 months in Hollywood as a screenwriter. Brian also owns and operates Heroes & Hellions, a genre movie fan site.


Michael Dargie is a creative director in Calgary specializing in creative strategy and branding. Michael acts, writes and directs short-films; has performed in several feature films, after-school specials and plays, and is an active member of the world famous Loose Moose Theatre Company—learn more about Michael at www.MichaelDargie.com or @MichaelDargie on Instagram and Twitter.
