Henchmen

Standard

Henchmen is a short comedic film that takes place in a world where super heroes and villains are commonplace. But the stereotypes of the genre are turned upside down by focusing on two nobody henchmen as the main characters. Hank and Dom are tasked with the simple job of guarding the elevator to an evil lair. They debate their roles in life, whether or not they are treated fairly by heroes and villains alike, and whether or not there is still any honour in being bad.

As the art director, CJ McGillivray assisted production designer Austin Wrinch by providing graphic designs for the all of the villainous signage in the protected lair as well as the heroic emblem for Captain Apollo. In the early days of preproduction, CJ McGillivray was also the casting director for Henchmen.
