A Ron Hynes Documentary (that I worked on)

I worked as the sound recordist for the upcoming feature-length documentary, Ron Hynes: The Man of a Thousand Songs. We wrapped a few weeks ago and the film is due out sometime in the fall of 2010.

I’m eager to see how the final cut comes together. There were more than a few moments during the shoot when we knew something extraordinary was happening — I think the film will tell a compelling story no matter what. It was a pleasure to get to know Ron and to work with director Bill MacGillivray and everyone on the crew. I’d work with any of them again any day. It’s the best experience I’ve had working in film.

Updates on the film can be found on Facebook, MySpace and at TheManOfAThousandSongs.com.

If you don’t know Ron Hynes, here’s his Wikipedia entry, his website and his MySpace page.

A Mythbuster Busts Religion

Adam Savage from Mythbusters recently received the Annual Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award from the Harvard Humanist Society. Part of his acceptance speech:

I think one of the defining moments of adulthood is the realization that nobody’s going to take care of you. That you have to do the heavy lifting while you’re here. And when you don’t, well, you suffer the consequences…
While nobody’s going to take care of us, it’s incumbent upon us to take care of those around us. That’s community.

Go Habs

To all my friends who are Habs fans, you have my support for this play off run. Here is why. You’ve finally realized Halak is your #1 trade Price (not to the Leafs). Where did this team come from! Was is Gainy after all? Also two of my favourite former Leafs have greatly helped — Gill and Moore. I would have loved to see Moore with Kessel — he made Blake look good. Go Habs! (Good for this play off run only.)
