Had the pleasure of interviewing George Bowser over breakfast today at Moe’s Diner in Montreal. An institution in Montreal, Moe’s or the “Casse-Croute Du Coin” has been serving customers since 1958. The present owner, Eddy Thomas, is selling after nearly 40 years working there. Here’s an article from the Montreal Gazette: Moe’s diner to close
I’m working with my collegue Louise Abbott on her documentary about the preservation of the home of the founder of Knowlton, Paul Holland Knowlton. The house was in danger of being torn down when the owner, the Knowlton Golf Club, wanted it removed. The town formed a foundation to have it moved and preserved and it’s now on the grounds of the Knowlton museum, in the process of being restored.
I went in to shoot some video for CM Labs yesterday. It’s hard to get a wide enough angle to show the immersive effect of all the screens, so I took some footage using a GoPro. Here’s a photo I took of their Global Accounts Manager and operator for the day, George, and another shot taken by Samuel St-Amour, of the marketing department, showing the simulator as well.
I was shooting a few weeks ago for my client Louise Abbott, a documentary filmmaker that I work with often. She’s doing a project about raising a 150 year old log from the bottom of Lake Memphremagog. It will be used by cabinet maker Niels Jensen to make a unique dining room table.
I wanted to get some underwater footage with my GoPro, so got all suited up. Unfortunately, I had never worn a dry suit and couldn’t get the darned air out, so I floated around like a cork!
