MC NITE SUN – One’s Place

[vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/pa1t6hqvAJw”]

I’m so honoured to share a music video that I shot with Tipiskâw Pîsim (A.K.A MC NITE SUN) last summer in Treaty 7 Territory just West of what is now known as Calgary, AB.

I absolutely love Tipiskâw Pîsim’s work and honoured to have been able to do this collaboration; this song really speaks to the need for all of us to be better to women and mother Earth, for we are nothing without them.

Moe Clark à Montréal

My first introduction to Montréal occurred in 2013 and that is when I met the amazing Cree/Métis performer Moe Clark.

I had chatted with Moe in the past about potential collaborations, and after a brief reunion in Vancouver for the 2018 Verses Festival of Words, I knew for a fact that I had to come back to Montréal to see Moe.

My first day was jam-packed, right off the train and into my first shoot documenting performances at the Sisters in Motion event in the Mile End, followed by attending the Tomson Highway opera, which Moe was performing in. I was unprepared for how amazing this evening was going to be, I had never been to an opera before, and to have the Montréal Symphony Orchestra accompany an opera performed in both Cree and Inuktitut was just brilliant.

The rest of the week includes meeting many amazing people and shooting photos and band promo videos. My time here is coming to an end and by tomorrow I’ll be back in Toronto, but I am definitely moving here soon!

Mix Mix Lipstique Trailer

During my 2 months in Toronto, I was introduced to Ashley Colours Perez, a fantastic dancer who is also part of the MixMix Dance Collective. After a hot cup of coffee on a cold Canadian afternoon, the seed was planted to shoot something together. A few weeks later MixMix invited me to their rehearsal space in North Toronto to film a portion of their recent show LIPSTIQUE.

The full video itself won’t be released online, but there is a trailer to share!

Special thanks to Pete Moore who assisted on the initial cut of this trailer.
