During the last part of my wife’s illness I dropped all my writing and filmmaking projects. I want to get back to them now. It isn’t just that I want to work on them; I feel that I need something to focus on now that she is gone. Retrospective One project I want to do… Read Article →

My movie “Contingency” (http://dynamiclethargyfilms.ca/filmlist/contingency/) will be shown at the $100 Film Festival 25th Anniversary Retrospective next Wednesday, March 22, 2017. http://www.100dollarfilmfestival.org/festival/retrospective/ I made “Contingency” as a retrospective on the festival for the 20th festival in 2012.

I want to complete the video conversion for Contingency soon. This week I did some preparation to try again. I had worried that I had damaged the film the last time I tried to do the transfer. This week I did an inspection of the films I found some damage. Fortunately, it was only minor… Read Article →

I got some nice comments from people about the award Contingency won at the festival last weekend. It was all very gratifying. Some people suggested I get it into other festivals, but I can’t think of any other festivals where I could submit it. Since the film is focussed on the $100 Festival, other festivals… Read Article →
