  4. Most of this footage was shot with Patrick Gilmore in Hells Canyon, while working on a project for The Hells Canyon Preservation Council (vimeo.com/218353920).

    The edit originally came from our teaser video, "15 seconds in Hells Canyon", but I later expanded on it, creating this.

  5. Now available on Video On Demand: vimeo.com/ondemand/lifeoffgrid

    Off-grid isn’t a state of mind. It isn’t about someone being out of touch, about a place that is hard to get to, or about a weekend spent offline. Officially, “off grid” refers to a home or town that is disconnected from the electricity and natural gas networks that serve a region. Living off-grid, therefore, means having to radically re-invent life as we know it. It means choosing to live in a way that is dramatically innovative: a way that draws on skills of the past and is inspired by concerns for our collective future.

    Life Off Grid explores the lives of Canadians in every province and who have made the choice to disconnect. The film explores the ways by which a variety of people, all with different environmental concerns and constraints, live away from contemporary civilization. It raises important questions about the future: questions about the struggles and successes found along our path towards a life that is environmentally and socially more sustainable. Off-grid homes are experimental labs for our collective future, an intimate look into unusual contemporary domestic lives, and a call to the rest of us leading ordinary lives to examine what we take for granted.

    Life Off Grid travels from west to east, from province to province and territory to territory, on a two-year journery exploring how and why Canadians disconnect from larger infrastructures. The film explores themes of motivation and inspiration, unpacks the challenges associated with regional climates and economies, and shows how people living off the grid deal with the everyday demands of heat, light, water, food, and waste.
