Moose Jaw is surprisingly awesome. Everything moves at a much slower pace in Saskatchewan. We dress our sets and buy groceries for the crew. Tom, Jenna, Ashleigh, and the kids arrive in Caronport around nine-thirty despite getting a flat outside Llyodminster. Tomorrow we start shooting this thing. In the meantime, more photos: […]Read more "FIVE DAYS IN CARONPORT – DAY TWO"
Drove to Saskatchewan today. Tomorrow we scout and prep, then on Wednesday we start shooting the script that in many ways brought Lizzie and I together. Will share more about that when the movie’s a little further along. In the meantime, here are some photos I took with my new A7r. Until next time. Dylan […]Read more "FIVE DAYS IN CARONPORT – DAY ONE"
Tasy is in love and barely looks away from her phone even as the majestic Rockies pass by. Every few minutes she checks to see if she’s somehow missed something, even though she knows it’s impossible: the phone’s been sitting on her lap the entire time. I resist the urge to make fun of her […]Read more "ON THE ROAD WITH CONSILIENCE"

But hell, make it square and standard def and get […]Read more "FUN"
Crazy to think that it was over a year ago that we filmed this video. It was probably the most challenging shoot I’ve put together so far. Local film technology wizard Larry Kelly put together a custom-built sled that the DP/camera operator Christina could sit on while we followed Jesse on the ice. We’d […]Read more "NO FUN"
Read something Baudelaire wrote recently. It was about people loving the ocean because it represents vastness and perpetual motion. I’ve never really liked looking at the ocean. When I lived in Vancouver, I never even went to the beach. What I loved about the coast were the machines. There’s something romantic about the industry that surrounds […]Read more "OCEAN OF GRAIN"
At a favourite local bar one night, some rock n roll friends asked if I would help them make a video. Tom set up the shots, Evan Pearce did the projections, I just made sure everyone was in sync and hit “play” on the song. It was fun playing with the edit, doing the split-screens with […]Read more "Borrowed Suit, Secondhand Dress"
