One of my missions in St John's was to record as much live music as possible, for sharing with my friends and colleagues and for possible use in a future video installation / exhibition. After two visits to Newfoundland over the decades, the amount of live music was what stuck with me the most. Like, without leaving downtown, I shot 9 bands in a week and a half.

Post production starts this week, though I'm still busy with Wreckless Eric, and new spots for the Element Agency (one for Amnesty International).
Weee! Haven't gone out and directed something for a long-arse time. It was extremely fun!
