BIOGRAPHY OF GEORGE DAVID MENARD, A.K.A. GEORGE MAYNARD, AN ARTISTIC PSEUDONYM USED IN HIS FILM ARTS TO ACCENTUATE HIS CAREER OBJECTIVES; MOREOVER, IT IS THE NAME OF HIS GRANDFATHER WHOM HE NEVER KNEW:

David George Menard, a.k.a. film director George Maynard, holds a 1985 master's degree in laser physics from the University of Tennessee. He worked as an optoelectronics engineer for the Aerospace Conglomerate, Lockheed Martin, until the collapse of the Soviet Union, after which he returned to pursue his doctorate in quantum physics at U.T. Knoxville. However, in 1996, the death of his stepfather caused him to suspend his doctoral pursuits and return to Canada to be with his family. In 1998, he joined the computer engineering department at the University of Vermont, where he pursued a master’s in material sciences, learning to design CMOS microprocessors and MOEM electro-optics used in advanced digital cameras. There, he published a S.B.I.R. research paper on the development of reconfigurable, adaptive optics for a neural network, cinematographic cameras. After his groundbreaking work, he pursued an advanced film production degree at Concordia University in Montreal. There, he earned a B.F.A. in film production with minors in film studies and photography. Thereafter, he continued his graduate studies in film production after being accepted to the M.F.A. program in 2005. Recently, he has been using his diverse expertise in helping cineaste, Louise Lamarre, to demonstrate the movie making feasibility of an internationally patented projection system, a holo editorial layering process (H.E.L.P.), which allows filmmakers to composite digital images in-camera, during any kind of studio production. Now, in his last year of graduate school, he has fully used H.E.L.P. to produce his thesis film, a dramatic family fiction, a Kierkegaardian moral narrative with strong Ibsenian overtones set within scenic backdrop intralays, all of which helped set the story in contemporary southern Quebec. His graduate thesis film, entitled “Mama’s Will,” was shot in mid-summer 2009, with a post-production period lasting eight months, just in time for the beginning of the 2010 Film Festival Circuit.
