2012 TIFF Talent Lab

Exciting News! I’m off to participate in the 2012 TIFF Talent Lab (Sep 5-8, 2012). Congratulations to my fellow 2012 Labbers! I look forward to working with a truly talented group of filmmakers.

‘Now in its ninth year, Talent Lab is an intensive four-day artistic development programme that provides emerging talent with an unparalleled opportunity to learn from the world’s best film artists.

Using the Festival’s outstanding relationships with acclaimed filmmakers, Talent Lab leads participants in group discussions on a range of topics focused on the artistic side of filmmaking, sharpening the skills and confidence of a new generation of filmmakers.

Talent Lab is led by four esteemed governors who mentor the participants, guiding them through the sessions with guest speakers. Two of this year’s confirmed governors include producer Stephen Woolley (Great Expectations, The Crying Game, Interview with a Vampire) and documentary filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal (Manufactured Landscapes, Act of God).’

Filming ‘A Rock and a Hard Place’

Behind the scenes filming a gold pour on location in the refinery at Goldcorp Inc’s Red Lake Gold Mines, Canada’s largest gold mining operation and one of the richest gold mines in the world. It took going through airport-like security and then a five camera set up to document the pour. Kudos to our amazing doc crew, Producer Lynne Kamm, Director of Photography Ryan Randall and Sound Recordist Sean van Delft.
