16 March 2015 – Now in post-production on my short film entitled: Irish Corktown.  Following the life of a first generation Hamilton Irish Canadian in the 19th century.  I am very busy with editing and selecting music.  Hope to have the project finished later this month. Over the past week, getting used to using a glidecam for film shots.  Steep learning curve.  Thanks for dropping by.

Working on a new film project and reflecting on different ways of using historical photographs and drawings in modern urban landscapes. Last summer, I tried a technique used in several recent documentaries.  I am not happy with the results.  As a result, I am still searching for a better way of accessing the past via present day landscapes.  I thought, however, that you may find these past attempts interesting.
