2010, Animated Short

The colourful, graphic style of Roy Henry Vickers’ First Nations print images inspired this contemporary treatment, gliding through BC landscapes as they are brought to life by the artist’s hand.

This animated short was created as part of a series called 12 Takes – 12 BC filmmakers give their takes on 12 BC Artists. My film about Nick Bantock is another in the series, which airs regularly on Knowledge Network and was nominated for the 2011 Gemini Award for Best Performing Arts / Arts Documentary Program, as well as the 2011 Golden Sheaf Award for Best Arts / Culture Documentary.
