I am happy to finally release the short documentary 'The Creative Testimonies' directed by Jade Lalonde.
Jade approached me in be beginning of the pre production process simply for some advice on how to go about shooting this doc. After meeting with her and hearing her pitch, I couldn't stay away. I thought her idea was great and I just had to be a part of it. I am so grateful that she allowed me to be part of her project.
This documentary is a part of Jade's thesis project for her Masters degree at McMaster University. The Create Testimonies explores the Toronto creative scene and the "free" spaces in the community. Throughout the doc Jade speaks to Toronto creatives to get an in depth look into the reality of what it means to live as a creative in the big city.
"My documentary 'The Creative Testimonies' is now live on YouTube! This film serves as my Major Research Project (MRP) for my Master's degree at McMaster University. The documentary highlights the experiences of creative workers in Toronto, particularly in regards to precarious labour and creative industries. A special thank-you and shout out to Sarah Gonyea my wonderful partner in crime, cinematographer, and editor."
