Hometown Fever Dream

Excerpt from a longer piece that builds on the thematic play of dissociation, recovery and cultural identity.

*2 years ago I recorded the alarm system going off in a parkade. It was eerie, foreboding and I loved it. I held onto that sample and was FINALLY able to use it…so satisfying to rediscover audio and find a proper home for it*

The Beekeeper

Repost. One of my favourite things to do is collaborate with my Partner. This is a short I did with him a few years back. I love watching this, and how he works. It was such a warm evening in June and I loved every minute, capturing this moment with him.

Preserves

Recently I spent the afternoon with Bren and collected footage of him canning in his kitchen, making curried apple chutney. I’m always interested in the process, and how things come to fruition, so this seemed like an ideal collaboration. I love working with people that I know, there is something so relaxed about the creative process, and the end result with Bren turned out better than I expected.

Mayfair Farms

This summer I purchased an “Opteka SteadyVid SV-HD Camera Stabilizer” http://amzn.com/B00DRGQETA I decided to try it out when we went raspberry picking at the Mayfair Farms, and I like the end result. The stabilizer can be a bit tricky when you first set it up, but once you get it balanced it works well, and you can get some nice smooth shots. ¬†
