With that said, I have so, so much to catch up on. I'll be dropping posts on everything from Berlin to Montreal in the last 4 months, including some long exposure and HDR shots that I have been experimenting with and learning. I'm also going through a pretty heavy organization phase as I prepare for my upcoming studies so I am trying to not to get buried under new work while putting older piles of work in proper order.
The big news this week is the premier of Patrick O'Connor's documentary film "Making a Name" at the FIFA, the International Festival of Films on Art, on Friday the 22nd March 2013. It is playing at 6:30 pm
at the Cinquieme Salle, located at 175 saint Catherine Street West. You can get tickets at the Place Des Arts Ticket Office here, they are $12 each.
For those of you who know Patrick, he has been documenting the local subculture of which he has firm roots for over a decade. His first feature, Wreckognition, was situated in the streets following a number of Montreal's most notorious writers (and a few from abroad) as they 'bombed' and 'destroyed' everything from walls to trains. Although Wreckognition was a work mostly documenting bombing on the streets and elsewhere in the city, it was the most comprehensive compilation of any Montreal based writers in action that had been produced to that date. Making a Name is a more in depth and detailed look at the local scene featuring interviews with some of the heaviest hitters this city has to offer and footage that will satisfy even the most fiendish writers out there. the documentary also features tracks and music by the Furious One. FIFA has also set up a discussion period after the film that will have some local faces and names (including yours truly) chatting with the director Patrick O'Connor about the finer parts of the documentary and ideally some food for thought. Do yourself a favor and check this documentary out, you will not be disappointed.
If you don`t already own Wreckognition you can most likely find it at a local graff shop or you could contact Patrick Directly through his site http://
So be ready for more updates, the last few months, and check this documentary!
