Corey William Large is a Canadian writer, actor, and producer of feature movies.[1]

Early life and education[edit]

Large was born and raised in the Prospect Lake area of Sannich in the northwestern part of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.[2]

After elementary school, he enrolled at St. Michaels University School.

Career[edit]

Initially, he found work as a model. At the age of 21, he moved across the Georgia Strait and enrolled at the Vancouver Film School[3] and later at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles.[4]

His early career featured minor parts in TV shows, including 21 Jump Street, which was shot in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Breaker High, shot in Burnaby, B.C. He also had a background part in the 1997 film Excess Baggage, starring Alicia Silverstone, and in 1998 with a role on Disturbing Behavior with then unknown Katie Holmes.

He soon realized that his real opportunities in the film industry lay in post-production and financing projects.[2]

He returned to St. Michaels University School[5] to direct and act in Window Theory, a movie he also produced, and which was released in 2005. Luke Flynn was his co-star in the film.

Large returned to his native Victoria to begin shooting a series of films starting with the "Cannabis Kid", about a teen who becomes a marijuana smuggler.[2][6]

Today Large splits his time between Santa Monica, Victoria and Hawaii.

Other interests[edit]

Wingman Productions is based in Santa Monica and consists of Large, partner Alan Pao, and collaborating writer Kyle Kramer who have written, produced, co-starred in, and sold several full-length features to Hollywood studios.

Tunnel Post Inc. is a Santa Monica-based company which creates, restores, and delivers high-end media content, including feature films, television programs, live events, commercials, music videos, and trailers. It was founded by Kyle Jackson, Alan Pao, and Corey Large.
