Well we’re coming up to the end of 2011, and what a year it has been, with the Project:52 winding down, the the last rolls sitting here on my desk waiting to be taken into the lab on Monday.
2012, big things for this year including 2 special projects. Sorry no Project:52 for 2012 (it may return for 2013), but 2012, big year indeed. The first project is about the War of 1812, 200 years ago between the United States of America and the British Empire. Titled “Everything Changes,” it will cover as much about the war of 1812 as I can possible get for you, my faithful readers. The project will be covered like many of my projects entirely on film, again using multiple cameras and film stocks. I’ll go and visit the various forts around Ontario and up-state New York and even Ohio (if I can). With my involvement with the 60th Royal American Regiment of Foot, I’ll have a front line seat (often fighting) in the reenactment battles such as the Seige of Fort Erie and new for 2012, the Battle of Queenston Heights…even a visit to Washington DC in in the plans for the project.
The Second Project for 2012 is about Doors Open events through Ontario, where I’ll take you on a tour of locations that often are closed to the public, again working with film, mostly medium format to give you a fresh look on places you may have never had a chance to see before!
Onwards we go!
