NFB Short

Hey folks! I'm deep in rehearsals at the Saint Norbert Ruins for Shakespeare in the Ruins production of Comedy of Errors this year (I'll share some more about this project in a few days). I wanted to stop in and share the short film that I worked on in March for the National Film Board of Canada.

Every year the NFB produces a series of films featuring recipients of Governor General's Performing Arts Awards. I had the pleasure of Production Managing a film directed by my talented friend and award winning film maker Deco Dawson. The film features an amazing woman whose support for the arts in Winnipeg has been integral to many institutions longevity - Jean Giguere.

The film features Jean, as well as a scale model of downtown Winnipeg made out of paper. I, along with many others, cut out all of those buildings and assembled the city in a few short days! It was a very exciting project to be a part of.

  1. oooh wow! Thanks for sharing this video the paper cut outs are so well done it looks amazing. Such a unique idea.

  2. Wow, the cutouts are so immensely pretty and skillfully done. What a creative, inspiring work of art! I think you have one of the coolest and best jobs of anyone I've ever known, dear Lisa.
