03.17.2008 - Underground Film Fest
Summersong has been selected to show at the Calgary Underground Film Festival from April 15th - 20th. Check out the website for more information in regards to venues/times etc. Founded in 2003, CUFF is a collective of arts administrators, festival organizers, and media artists who saw a void in alternative film and video exhibition for Calgary film enthusiasts. Calgary's thriving and growing arts community earmarks for us the perfect opportunity to bring in something new, innovative and challenging. The underground film festival theme is something that, new to Calgary, only builds upon what other major cities around the world have already initiated. CUFF is a registered not-for-profit Society under the Alberta Societies Act.
02.05.2008 - Meat For The Beast
Over February 2nd & 3rd I directed the heavy metal music video "Plasma" for Divinity. It was a hard shoot for everyone but somehow by the grace of god we made it through. It was my first time working with animals (and a naked woman drenched in black goo sitting beside a large gargoyle), which proved to be very exhausting but the images are amazing.
We shot this in high definition HD and this is another first for me - so far the images have been welcoming but I still can't help being a bit nervous of this new technology. The set looked just killer (thanks to Mike Matthews and Lindsy) and the costumes were so unique (thanks to Danika). I am currently in a state of exhaustion and excitement ... a weird place to be indeed. I am looking forward to the editing of this video as I think I may be best suited to be stationed in a dark room without human contact for a while.
