First in our Where does your food come from? series Here is our first video in the Where does your food come from? series, which will be 30 second glimpses into why food is important to people, other than the obvious survival sense, of course.
Smart phone multi-camera setup for our video series A typical video from our series Lesson 01 Seed Mosaics This is one of the videos we made. My wife’s art studio that she designed herself made a great video set and the acoustics were pretty good.
We’re making a film about Moranda Van Geest’s run for a seat in the provincial legislature as a Green Party candidate. Elaine has known Moranda for a long time so when she asked us to do a video for her we said yes. But as usual I made the project three times as big as […]

La Solitude in Pre-d’en Haut near Memramcook, N.B., is a silent retreat centre offering simplicity, solitude and beautiful natural surroundings. It’s where the Petitcodiac River widens and you can smell the sea.
