Well okay, playing a bit of catch-up here. But it’s better than letting the “series” go unfinished, no? We wrapped the shoot on Friday night. Lizzie seemed to gain more confidence with every passing day. It’ll be a hell of an edit (we shot about 500GB worth of ProRes for a probably 8-10 minute film), […]Read more "FIVE DAYS IN CARONPORT – DAYS FOUR AND FIVE"
Long day. Mosquitos in Caronport continue to be an existential threat to humanity, but we are persevering. See the problem is that if you want to make a nice movie in the prairies, you have to shoot in a wheat field at dusk. And it is at this very time, dear reader, that mosquitos are […]Read more "FIVE DAYS IN CARONPORT – DAY THREE"
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"

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"
Had a really great time putting this together over a couple days with some funny people. I was also a little stressed though, because if you shoot for “cheesy/bad = good” and miss you get “cheesy/bad = is just bad” and that’s the worst. 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"
