Gavin Baird is an independent filmmaker based in Saskatoon, SK. His previous works include the web-series Four in a Blanket, along with the feature films, The Big Gust!, Begonia, and the upcoming The Caring Only Cry at Night.

Chengis Javeri

I was born into a family of artists and models in Pakistan. I began to follow in my mum's footsteps at age 5, but was all done with the fast cars and fast women by age 9. My father (Husain), a jeweller with close ties to the Bhutto government, emigrated the family to Canada when the political landscape changed in Pakistan. I like to act out (sometimes in front of a camera, sometimes in a grocery store). After working in the family business for many years, I have returned to the world of acting. I am hoping that being a giant movie star will help me find new friends that I can then ignore.
