Montréal

It's been awhile since I've visited my friends from Montréal! Before I start my new job, I headed over there for a couple of days to bask in the remainder of the glory unemployment has to offer. The glory included a ton of delicious food, free time to enjoy the nice weather and photo opportunities. I also had the chance to drop in for a class at Carlson Gracie BJJ - Byoung came with me and tried a class, too. Click on the photo below for the more extensive album on Flickr

Making Masterpieces From Recycled Materials in SF

A short doc-style video project I created on Ripple News for the Recology Artist in Residence Program in San Francisco.

Recology SF's Artist in Residence program took Ripple on an insider tour of its artist studios and scavenging site, showing us how mixing resource conservation and art is innovative and creatively liberating.

The Roots @ Luminato 2014

I went to see the legendary Roots last Saturday at Luminato 2014. They changed my views on concerts, so in that case, I've never seen a real concert until last Saturday. The Roots played straight through- that seriously took willpower, determination, experience and true musicianship. I personally am still in disbelief of what I witnessed. Got some amazing shots, ended up writing a concert review for Love This City.

Soulpepper- Of Human Bondage

On Sunday, May 25th, my friend Nick took my friend Joseph and I to see a play at his workplace, the Soulpepper theatre in Toronto's famous Distillery District. The play was by Vern Thiessen, and it was based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham.

This was the first play I've ever watched, and I must say, the bar's been set really high up. The live production was my focus- audio aspects, visual components, etc. The audio was created on the spot- sound effects were born through the mouths of the other actors or instruments. There's one scene where the main characters are in a tea shop, and to mimic a busy tea shop, the actors off stage clink their teacups together and talk at a low volume. It resonated well. I'm always blown away by live performances because of the constant character change. In plays, side actors usually have more than one role. To see characters act as if they were approaching their death bed, then in the next scene seeing them alive and well with another truly accentuates their talents and experience in this industry.
