Back of The Mike (sic) is a wondrously entertaining 9 minute film from 1938 that shows how sound effects were integrated with live radio broadcasts.

It May Be True

The film industry loves rumors. We all understand plans mean little and nothing is really going to happen for sure until it has already happened but we love to speculate.

Bitter Sweet 2020

As I write this, the Vancouver Film Production scene is struggling to get fully up and running due to the pandemic illness Covid19. Shows have started then stopped and each time it causes a nightmare of changes butterflying the ripples in our city and beyond. As a year, 2020 is up there with 1929, in terms of how messed up…
