Little Moccasins Wins Best Documentary at the VSFF

I’ve heard some good news from the Vancouver Short Film Festival - looks like Little Moccasins has picked up Best Documentary for 2014. I’m proud to have scored music for such an important film.

Paris en Couleurs, an √Čtude in Composing and Filmmaking

When you learn how to play piano, whether it’s classical, jazz, or any other genre, you learn by playing other music. In a way, I felt it was time to get back to basics and not only score music with familiarity, but also scrap my filmmaking rig down to its basics: a single lens, a camera, and no tripod. I guess I could have taken this furthur with a prime.

Sinew and Yellow Cedar Short

When my dad was younger, he built a wooden sail boat which he used for a short time on Kootenay Lake. Growing up, I never had the chance to sail it, but I always wondered what it took to build something like this - for the many years that it rested at the side of the house, I watched it rot away.

Working on a new film

I’m working on a new short film called Sinew and Yellow Cedar. What is the state of wooden boat building? In a world where we are constantly throwing things away and buying products made of plastic, we tend to forget the value of working with your hands and producing something with natural elements.
