      Yet again, another video of my kids. I apologize to those who are getting sick of them, it just that they supply me with so much joy and they don't care if I point a camera at them.

          "... all that sense can comprehend, is light: because it partakes of that which it is. to comprehend dark, or a shape, it must withdraw from its own nature it must withdraw or turn against its own electrical illuminating nature in order to comprehend a shape."[1] on light, or the ingression of forms pays homage to the philosopher of light, robert grosseteste. the title is intended to be somewhat tongue-in-cheek since this video was made entirely in the dark, using only a circuit bent webcam. no additional computer effects or sound were added to the video. 1. stan brakhage the text of light, cantrills filmnotes 21/22, (april 1975). this text is a transcription of the introduction and the question and answer session after a screening of brakhages film, the text of light(1974). brakhage was paraphrasing from robert grossetestes work, on light, or the ingression of forms.

              We had a great time with Danielle & Adam! Running around most of southern Manitoba then chasing their big pink bus into Winnipeg was a blast! You can tell by the looks on their faces that they are truly in love. The whole day was topped off by a gorgeous prairie sunset. We hope you enjoy the results! Special thanks Nghia and Trish, you guys are amazing! All the credit goes to you guys for the locations and lots of the direction. Additionally, Ian Mortier joined us for this shoot. Thanks for being a champ and baring the heat!

                Both beauty and destruction. Both homage and critique. Sincere insincerity amidst the concrete jungle. "Nature here is vile and base. ... I see fornication and asphyxiation and choking and fighting for survival and growing and just rotting away ... It's a land that God, if he exists has - has created in anger. It's the only land where - where creation is unfinished yet. Taking a close look at - at what's around us there - there is some sort of a harmony..." Filmed in a single day by Aaron Zeghers and Nigel Webber. --- "Surface level parking lots are both eyesores and public safety hazards." -Sam Katz [winnipeg mayor], during press release announcing tax breaks to surface level parking lot owners. "Since when has the avant-garde begun looking towards postcards for inspiration? ... What's next Benning, twenty-five sunsets or eleven parking lots?" -Clint Enns [multidisciplinary artist / provocateur] "I like postcards." -Jodie Mack [experimental animator] "It's tangible, it's solid, it's beautiful. It's artistic, from my standpoint, and I just love real estate." -Donald Trump --- \\\ screening history /// > 2014 Transient Visions | Johnson City, NY > 2014 DOXA Film Festival | Vancouver, BC > 2014 Visions Experimental Doc Series | Montreal, QC (upcoming] > 2014 Winnipeg Handshake | Curated by Matt Rankin | Concorida University, Montreal, QC > 2014 Tunnelvision at Architecture Fringe Fest | Winnipeg, MB

                  The motion graphics are still a work in progress but I thought I would throw it up here anyway. Filming in the winter is fun because you get to stop at lots of coffee shops and pubs :) Filmed with the Canon 5DMarkII. Edited with Premiere and AE.

                      Oak + Oar and Handcraft Creative are pleased to present the fourth episode of Homegrown, a series of videos catching up with some of the homegrown talent with ties to the city of Winnipeg. It seemed only fitting that on a cool Saturday morning we would find Haven Design owner, Josh McFaddin, tucked in his historic Exchange District studio in downtown Winnipeg. The unique buildings that comprise the downtown Exchange District boast raw beauty and awe-inspiring character. This blend of characteristics directly parallels Josh’s approach to his craft. Like the masons before him his keen eye for detail and his unique relationship with wood, stone and the outdoors ensure that his custom furniture, stonework and kitchen design are all produced in a manner that is far from common. Each piece is designed, start to finish, with the mentality that the completed piece will find itself nestled in your safe haven and family for generations to come. Directed and Produced by Cam Friesen (Handcraft Creative), Eric Sung and Chris Watchorn (Oak + Oar) www.oakandoar.com www.handcraftcreative.com www.havenkitchens.com
