Born in Calgary, Alberta, as a young child I left Canada and moved to the South Pacific. For six years I lived in Papua New Guinea where I attended local schools and traveled to many remote areas and witnessed a very diverse way of life. In 1997 I moved to the Fiji Islands where I attended an international school and participated in many community and cultural activities. I have been very fortunate to grow up with friends from all over the world and have had many unique opportunities to learn about different traditions and cultures. I now currently live in Winnipeg.

Through my production company, Summit2Sea Pictures, I specialize in underwater cinematography and I am constantly thriving to achieve different 'film looks' under a world we rarely see. Based in Winnipeg, Summit2Sea Pictures provides producers and clients with all the necessary tools for a successful shoot in Winnipeg or anywhere in the world. Anything from super 8 to 35mm, handicam to the new digital RED. I try to incorporate my experiences of the South Pacific in my work as much as I can.

Fear's Plunge

video


I am currently directing an experimental short film called 'Fear's Plunge' set at various locations in Ontario. The 12 minute short follows a boy through a near drowning experience and his quest to conquer his fear of water. I decided to shoot on super8 film because of the depth of field, latitude and sharpness and other aspects that are better in film than video. I also love the look of the film materiality (grain, imperfections, colors, dusts, etc.) of super8 which will enhance the mood specifically for this film. All-in-all we have 30 rolls of Kodak Vision 2 500T (10 of which was sponsored by Kodak) to shoot the film! I have included a short clip of the RAW unedited footage from reel 1 - and yes... that's a dummy falling!! More to come soon.
