The son of American draft dodgers, Aubrey Nealon was born in BC’s remote Slocan Valley, where he was raised free of such modern contrivances as telephones, electricity, and regular meals. At age fifteen, he headed for Vancouver and embarked on a career as a youth actor, highlighted by his turn as Olaf the Finnish Exchange Student on the teen soap opera Fifteen. Aubrey’s interest soon moved behind the camera, where he observed that people seemed generally to be having a better time, and in 1995 he enrolled at the Vancouver Film School, from which he graduated. Nealon is the director of the acclaimed short films Abe Manhood and In Memoriam. A Simple Curve, which screened at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2005 and went into distribution on February 3, 2006, is his first feature. It won the NFB Carolyn Fouriezos Award for Best First Feature at the Cinéfest Sudbury International Film Festival and opened the Canadian Images section of the Vancouver International Film Festival. Nealon was named the winner of the 2004 Don Haig Award.
