I recently spent a few days at a winter camp on Koshlong Lake in Ontario's Haliburton Highlands. It was quite a peaceful way to mark the new year. I made a short video capturing some of the wintry views:
I'm a Canadian journalist and filmmaker. I have produced and directed over 200 documentaries and profiles. Their subjects run the gamut from pop culture, literature, film and dance to television, theatre, visual art and architecture. I have interviewed Francis Ford Coppola, Colin Firth, Margaret Atwood, Peaches, Yann Martel, Edward Burtynsky, Bruce Mau, Jason Reitman and Heath Ledger to name a few. Over the years, I have also lived in South Africa making several documentaries and short films. My documentary work has been broadcast on TVO and CTV, and my short films have screened internationally in film festivals, art galleries, and design and music conferences. My work has also been featured on CBC Radio's Q. Passionate about moving pictures and sound, I've been creating videos for the web before the launch of YouTube. Opinions expressed here are my own.
