Now, in Vancouver

Bicycles and boats, sunset at Jericho beach

I’m heads-down, working away on the final touches to my film and sheltering in Vancouver while we all wait to see what happens next. A gracious friend has provided a place to stay while I search out housing for my two-week-turned-indefinite hiatus here. I’m safe and healthy, grateful to be in a country with an excellent public health system. I miss my artist & close friends in Brazil, Albuquerque and Paris. Like almost everyone I talk to, it feels like the human species is waiting, holding our breath, in limbo. It’s the strangest kind of liminal space.

I’m working on the final tweaks to the music, sound design and colour for Cántame. Most of the film festivals have I’d planned to show the film at have or are in the process of being cancelled. I’m not sure what’s next for the film, but I know I want to finish it well and for as many people as possible to get the chance to see it.

For now, I’m spending my time inside like everyone else, peeking out for groceries and exercise, taking in too many zoom calls, learning, waiting and watching.

As the world descends into madness

In the calm before the storm, climbing to the highest place in Brazil, my host country as the world descends into madness. Time to take in something beautiful and let my spirit rest before the inevitable chaos heading this way.

Curitiba

A few wandering shots from a short weekend visit to Curitiba, Brazil. It’s a long winding climb up from the coast. The altitude gives the place more of a Pacific Northwest vibe than the rest of Brazil, which is now sweltering through mid-summer.

28 Days Later

Producing a daily vlog is a revealing, invigorating creative experience. The format flexes artistic muscles and forces fast decisions. It pushes boundaries of participation and relationship. Failure and success are immediate, all with the chance to try again the next day. In the space of a month, I produced 90+ minutes of something worth watching.

Check out the final vlog here, and click through if you want to see the whole series.
