The Making of A Roy Henry Vickers Print offers us a rare opportunity. Very few artists over the course of history have ever allowed the public into their creative process. This DVD gives us an over-the-shoulder view of how Roy creates his magic. From his inspiration to drawing one of his renowned eagles, putting together the layers of a print and screen printing, Roy's creative process is full of meaning.

STAND, presented by Quiksilver Waterman, takes viewers on a journey through the waters of British Columbia's west coast. Under threat by the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline and tanker route is a coastline of immense beauty, pristine ecosystems, and a way of life rich in culture and history. Through the efforts of expedition stand-up paddler Norm Hann, an aboriginal high school class building their own stand-up paddleboards as a form of protest, and the powerful surfing of iconic west coast native Raph Bruhwiler, the diversity of people, landscape and wildlife that would be affected by an oil spill is articulated. STAND takes you to the core of the issue and unfurls the soul of B.C.'s west coast one paddle stroke at a time.
STAND is presented by Quiksilver Waterman and supported by Wefi, The Escape Route, Pacific Wild, Ikelite USA, Boardworks Surf, SBC Surf, Standup Journal and Coast Mountain Culture.
