Gullible, my new 16mm film installation, is an immersive three channel road movie, which screened as part of Victoria’s 2nd Annual Art (Space) Crawl, 2008.
Victoria’s exclusive Artist Run Centres collectively opened their doors for this en mass open house event. Art enthusiasts, curious citizens, and the general public caravaned through the streets of Victoria’s inner core and to the nine centres open throughout the evening, which cumulated at Open Space at 11pm for the closing event.
Pants on Fire wrapped in Victoria. I was fortunate to work with some truly brilliant actors: Grace Vukovic, Thea Gill and Dean Wray starred in the production. Jan Wood and Ned Vukovic from UVic’s Department of Theatre made cameo appearances.
The team of 30 cast and crew was comprised of 10 students from UVic and the Victoria Motion Picture School. Sandy Mayzell and Stacey Horton were brilliant producers who kept me on budget for the first time ever. We were excited to work with Barry Casson, CSC, as our cinematographer. Now to work editing!
