I have been blessed to collaborate with the termendously talented singer/songwriter/actor Jody Quine (www.jodyquine.com).   It’s been so fun in filming the videos.  We’ve kept it simple and so far we have made each video one continuous shot, no edits.

I met Jody back in 2005 when I was filming my feature ‘Abridge’.  Jody was acting in one of the scenes and at the time, I didn’t know Jody was also a singer/songwriter.

So far we have completed three videos, Go On, From the Heart and Again.  See them below.

Jody Quine from the Georgia Straight article (on-line)

Just found out my friend Jody Quine was featured in an article from the on-line version of Vancouver’s Georgia Straight (click here to see the article).

Two weeks ago Jody Quine and I got together to shot a video for her song “Go On” from her recent album “Stand Up”.   You can click here to see the video.  It was a labour of love.  Especially as I too suffer from depression and in working on this song, it really helped me though a bout of darkness I had been experiencing.  I am grateful to Jody for putting her trust in me to shoot the video for her.

 

 

Just finished directing and editing a music video for Jody Quine’s song “Go On”!

it aches in my bones
watching, up there,
wonderful performances
imagery, storytelling
oh to be there, in that moment
emoting along with the actors
the diligent crew, a wound spring
at the ready take after take
but missed most
the wonderful interaction
actor and director and crew and script
collaborative magic!
