Northeast Trail, Battery Road to Signal Hill, St John’s, NL

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

At the risk of angering my relatives, I admit freely, “gorgeous day but I miss the fog terribly”. Location-scouting for ghostly video is no fun with the sun on. Using my imagination to picture these locations in fog, or at least under grey skies.

This one might not look like much, but from the crevasse came the sounds of the ocean. Note to self – climb up again and record some audio!

Not in Brooklyn anymore

Sunday, June 10th, 2012

I went iceberg chasing down the Southern Shore to Ferryland, Newfoundland, this afternoon. It was a spiritual pilgrimage of sorts, I’ve been dreaming about the icebergs since my father moved back to Newfoundland years ago and sent a postcard of a pinnacled specimen locked in St John’s harbour. Hard not to stay all day and pay respects after waiting so long to see one. Ferryland’s mammoth chunk of ice was magnificent, blue in the grey sea, broken off from Greenland, a long way from home.

Minutes after I shot these photos the fog rolled in, blotting out the iceberg and the ocean and the road. A family of tourists drove up, clearly disappointed, cameras whirring in and out of focus, everything a grey-white blur. “That’s a sin” said one, staring into the abyss.

Slasher Cycle

Stills from a 4-channel video in post-production. Feet were dragging on this one, but a corner was turned today and I got excited again. Something about the colour.

This was shot in 2008 at the Headlands Center for the Arts in California.

I’ve been working on a new web project called Horror Stories with Julie Gill, a programmer who is also a ballet dancer. Here’s a sneak peek at the visuals. I am hoping to launch it soon.
