Born in Rio de Janeiro and raised in a lot of other places, Noel O'Connell, aka Vince to the few friends he still has, became obsessed with the story telling possibilities of film 3 years ago.  After selling a successful business he and his business partner and wife, Kathy Swanson, attended a one year film production program at Selkirk College in Nelson, BC where their film making passion was fanned.  He is excited to be able to take advantage of the great creative opportunity the OU MFA Film Program offers.  With eight shorts under his belt Vince now just wants to know how to convey "deadpan" on film.
