      In creating the documentary, the question of what repertory cinema is has come up many times. This short video will hopefully explain what it is, and give a little perspective on the world of rep. Music Credit: Við Spilum Endalaust by Sigur Rós "The Rep follows the first year of business for Alex, Charlie, and Nigel as they try to make their theatre, The Toronto Underground Cinema, a success in the dying world of repertory cinema. The film also places the cinema in context to the larger world of rep. Featuring interviews with theatres such as Film Forum in NYC, The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, and The New Beverly Cinema in L.A., and celebrities such as Kevin Smith, Edgar Wright, John Waters, Atom Egoyan, and George A. Romero, the world of repertory cinema will come alive as a vibrant and culturally significant medium that needs to be preserved."

              Single-screen neighbourhood movie theatres have entered their twilight in Canada. Vintage cinemas from the silver screen's Golden Age are simply too vast to attract today's dwindling movie audiences in the numbers required to make them viable as businesses. As a result, many of them are either being demolished for condos or shopping centres. In Vancouver, British Columbia, a group of dedicated locals have decided that a similarly-threatened heritage cinema, the Hollywood Theatre, deserves to be saved from the wrecking ball. They have formed the Save the Hollywood Coalition in order to prevent the theatre's current owner from turning the 1935 building into an American-owned fitness centre. The Coalition sees an alternative: they envision the Hollywood as a multi-purpose venue, serving the entire community. "Saving the Hollywood" tells their story as the dramatic battle over Vancouver's shrinking cultural landscape continues.

                • Hastings Theatres

                  Between 1900 and 1940 in the Hastings Street district (which I’m defining to include streets a couple blocks off of Hastings) there were, by my count, about a dozen theatres. That number, by the way, includes only distinct buildings – not cases of multiple owners buying a theatre and changing its name with every purchase (e.g., the second Pantages Theatre at 20 W Hastings which was also known during its life as the Beacon, the Odeon, and the Majestic). Most of the earliest theatres in the district began truly as theatres, versus cinemas, housing vaudeville acts and plays. By the 1930s and later, however, most gave way to the craze for movies and duly adapted. The City of Vancouver, in my judgement, made a series of less-than-optimal choices that resulted in a stretch of Hastings that once had three theatres on it (Columbia, the Cameraphone (the name was chnaged to the National soon after it opened), and the 2nd Pantages/Beacon/Odeon/Majestic), and which were knocked down, one by one, to await development when it’s deemed most profitable; until that time, this stretch of Hastings is a community garden. No doubt, enough ink has been spilled over the sad loss of the original Pantages Theatre (1907-2011) one block east of the community garden site. March/2014: I have recently noticed references to three other Hastings area Theatres. Text references to the Rose Theatre and the Crystal Theatre indicate that these were in roughly the same block as the original Pantages Theatre. In addition, there are images of the very early Imperial Theatre (700 block, Main Street, near Georgia) which appears to have been in disuse for many years -- at least from 1919 to 1943. I'm not sure when it was destroyed, but for a number of years it was home to Walsh's Auto Parts and Wrecking (the facade of the building was changed very little). A 1919 image of the Imperial Theatre may be found at Vancouver Public Library's historical photo site here: http://www3.vpl.ca/dbtw-wpd/exec/dbtwpub.dll?AC=GET_RECORD&XC=/dbtw-wpd/exec/dbtwpub.dll&BU=http%3A%2F%2Fwww3.vpl.ca%2Fspe%2Fhistphotos%2F&TN=PHOTOS&SN=AUTO24468&SE=6046&RN=3&MR=20&TR=10000&TX=1000&ES=0&CS=0&XP=&RF=briefweb&EF=&DF=Full+Photo&RL=0&EL=0&DL=0&NP=2&ID=&MF=&MQ=&TI=0&DT=&ST=0&IR=20390&NR=0&NB=0&SV=0&SS=0&BG=&FG=&QS=&OEX=ISO-8859-1&OEH=ISO-8859-1 A later (1943) image of the Imperial may be found on City of Vancouver Archives here: http://searcharchives.vancouver.ca/exterior-view-of-walshs-auto-wrecking-on-main-street-showing-facade-of-former-imperial-theatre;rad If you are interested in seeing more in this series of Street Corner Histories, you are welcome to check them out and/or bookmark them for future reference:https://vimeo.com/album/2512320

                    This is a piece I recently completed for Hatch Animation in Nova Scotia, with Mike Hachey and Julian Marentette as producers. I designed the concept based on a script provided by Hatch. Storyboard design, illustration, animation done by Goodspeed Productions. 3D text animation by Stephen Blacker at Hatch. I'm very happy with the way this spot turned out, as the client was initially hesitant based on the dark visual style. Thankfully, with a little creative nudging from myself and the producers, the spot ended up looking almost exactly how I conceived it. The client wanted high tech, but as I laughed about later when I realized it, whenever I hear 'high-tech' my mind immediately goes to 'retro-high-tech', and that's what I designed. While I'm sure that's not what they originally wanted, this project had absolutely the fewest revisions of anything I've worked on.
