Listen to the video- I say I’m a video artist I guess I mean it. The story of the pizza pole is longer than be contained in this video so I might need to revisit it. I have been in my post pizza pole period for over two summers it is my greatest triumph and failure,and its lessons continue to reverberate in my mind.
Susur’s Special Sauce Secrets!
I talked with Chef Susur Lee and tried to get him to reveal some secrets. He didn’t really give up any secrets, but it was a great discussion and herb oils are definitely a really useful thing to have in the kitchen. 2015 I WILL USE MORE HERB OIL.
There’s more potential to lamb heads. More aggressive Middle-Eastern flavours for the next one.
Barely finished it before the end of the year! There have been so many inspiring and amazing people I filmed in 2014. I still don’t feel like a professional fashion photographer but I feel a bit less weird around fashion week than I used to.
RELEASE THE QUACKEN
My latest food video for the Globe & Mail. DON’T EVER SANDWICH A DUCK BETWEEN OTHER BIRDS. The duck belongs on the outside.
I interviewed Chef Susur Lee and had him demonstrate his ‘signature’ dish, the Singaporean Slaw.
I’m excited to have made my first professional food video after many years of making some of the world’s most unprofessional food videos.
This could be the last Street Style video of the year, and I think many people in the city feel an extra weariness. That weariness for me disappears when I get a chance to film and be inspired by people on the street. The next videos will mark a period of expansion and adjustment, as I look back on this body of work and assess my successes and failures. A key part of this series has been consistency, but I will need to balance this with growth and some experimentation.
Setting the world on fire with fashion week STREET STYLE.
90 videos in- I still haven’t been able to get this awesome older German punk despite asking him well over a dozen times in the last 3 years. He finds the whole thing amusing, so it’s not like I’m actively bothering him with my persistence, but he is just too cool to participate in something so foolish.
TORONTO HAS DOPE GRAFFITI
In fashion news- plaid for dresses and pants is a thing. TRUST ME I SEE IT IT’S HAPPENING. Is it tough for people who wear a lot of plaid, to exist that way? I think that it’s easier to wear several plaid items than two plaids. Those who wear plaid bottoms are creating a more challenging existence for themselves.
Pasta and past.
Containing the most embarrassing footage of me that exists.
Wish I could have filmed my (inflatable) kayak journey over to the island and back, but I was trying not to die.
A new super dynamic STYLE EYE video shot at the Toronto International Film Festival. Whip-pans a plenty.
Summer was different. If I had a low-light waterproof camera you’d know what I was talking about.
A silent looping installation version of TVCITY STREET STYLE is now playing in an unnamed gallery space at 1384 1/2 Queen St West
The latest STYLE EYE video for the Globe & Mail, showcasing that summer is all about bright colour and bold print (except for when it’s about all-black).
Sometimes I see things that I can’t film. A man running towards his illegally parked car attached to a tow truck, yelling “I’m going to the Bahamas!”.
A different style of entry in my series STYLE EYE for the Globe & Mail. Without my usual representative aesthetic, I’ve mixed it up a bit, and included some Edgar Wright-style whip pans.
Some amazing ‘real’ spring fashion. Happy Birthday to the stylish and amazing Judith!
At the same time, this and the last few videos have a somewhat slight quality as far as the bookending elements of the videos. The important thing of course is the inspiring fashion shots. But I think I will try to have a bit more to say as far as the other types of shots go starting soon.
My favourite video for so far for the Globe & Mail. I was really pumped to see people dressed to have fun instead of dressing to not die from punishing cold winds.
