The Analogue Photography Series: Film is Still Alive

I was on my flight to Osaka when I got the email from Telus StoryHive. I was approved for funding to film episode 1 of my documentary series on analogue photography! I quickly forwarded the email to my collaborator Ryan from Arcade Original, and then I went dark for 12 hours (no wifi on my economy ticket). Once I got to Osaka, I had to wait 3 long weeks before I could head back to Vancouver and start shooting with Ryan, although I had lots of time for pre-production. My goal was to feature Vancouver photographers, but also make a connection to my next favourite city for photography, Hong Kong. It's been 3 months since we began filming, and now the documentary is up on Telus StoryHive's YouTube channel. Please visit their website to view and vote for our project. You can vote once a day for the next 5 days. If we get enough votes, we are approved to finish our series with two more episodes. I have much more to share with you about this project, but please enjoy the documentary for now. Thanks for all your support:

Please enjoy some screen shots from my documentary. More behind-the-scenes footage coming up here, on my Instagram account, Twitter, and my YouTube channel.

  1. Excellent film Take! I just voted for it on Story Hive. As a photographer who grew up with film and worked as a commercial photographer back in the '80s and 90's, it brought back a wave of memories from my first introduction to the medium. Have been shooting digital now for years but this gave me thought to explore film again.

  2. Hi
    It seems to late to vote for the project
    Still the video is quite interesting.
    What are the plan for the next 2 episode?

  3. To begin with I needed to pick up that broad learning of the film business so I could call myself a pundit and the other was to compose suppositions which would help the normal individual in the city in picking what film to watch. Film 2018

  4. Amazing shots. Thank you for sharing about the project.
