  3. On the paths that cut through Toronto's Tommy Thompson Park, at the foot of Leslie Street, an assortment of terrains collide: thicket, pebbled shorelines, muddy vistas, and fertile earth with beds of wildflowers. A giant duck crosses the horizon. A radio transmission of Shooby Taylor, the human horn, travels with us.

Post-production was completed at the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto. Telecine was done at Frame Discreet. Thanks to Emmalyne Laurin, Cameron Moneo, Karl Reinsalu and Lianna Hillerup.

  4. A mirror in the filmmaker's backyard reflects his childhood home. The black frame of the watermarked mirror becomes a mysterious portal, distorting brick, branch, and flesh into an amorphous hodgepodge. A self-portrait.
