1. Silver Creek tells the tale of a young band of outsiders, isolated and teased in their community, who one day discover the magic of their own creativity and imagination. The kids find solace and support in their celebration, though the moment is short-lived, and others try to break them apart.

    If viewers are moved by this short film’s message, they are encouraged to click the “TIP THIS VIDEO" button right below this text. The funds raised from this are not only a “tip” - they are the necessary resources that make the work done by the beneficiary charities, the Trevor Project and Rainbow Resource Centre possible. Both organizations do exceptional work with LGBTQ youth in crisis and offer supportive services that make a vital difference in young people’s lives.

    In 2012 Salazar set out across Canada driving over 2600 Kilometers from Vancouver, British Columbia to the village of Angusville, Manitoba to create Silver Creek. Over the course of 2 weeks the people of Angusville embraced our little band and our project, letting us shut down main street for days on end, invade their backyards, and throw confetti literally everywhere.

    We cast local actors and kids from around the region and many residents came out to be background actors. Every night our crew and the community broke bread together in the town hall. It was a profoundly unique experience for all involved. For two weeks a band of 50 odd people came together as a family, we lived together, and got to play together at making a film. This tight knit togetherness fit with the spirit of what our film was trying to convey.

  3. 2012 was a beautiful year for Salazar. We had the privilege to travel the deep south shooting with Self Evident Truths, endured the coldest Icelandic winter in 30 years, searched for abandoned swimming pools in the jungles of Thailand, filmed an Egyptian professional sumo wrestler living in Tokyo, AND somehow woke up to a Grammy nomination for our work with Tegan and Sara.

    We feel honoured to be able to continue telling stories and meeting incredible people along the way.

    We hope you enjoy!

    Love,
    Salazar

  5. The story takes place a thousand (or so) miles from home, in Iceland, land of the never-ending night sky. A couple searches for warmth and light on an endless journey through a city and it's countryside.

    Driving tirelessly through darkness in search of perfect daylight, only to watch it fade to orange and slip away again. We searched and discovered new ways to befriend this wonderful place, danced blind and drunk on the snowy streets of Reykjavik. We collaborated on the score with our friend and newest member of the collective Edo Van Breemen, who collected snippets of sound and lyrics from the landscape, transforming the entire journey into a recording studio. We worked together, played together, ate together, and (somehow) returned home together.
