New Work – Signal

A signal as referred to in communication systems, signal processing, and electrical engineering is a function that “conveys information about the behavior or attributes of some phenomenon”. In the physical world, any quantity exhibiting variation in time or variation in space (such as an image) is potentially a signal that might provide information on the status of a physical system, or convey a message between observers, among other possibilities.

Promotional Work for Speakeasy Theatre

It’s been a little quiet on the blog here but I’m gonna try an catch up with some work over the next little while. First I want to share a promotional series I photographed for Speakeasy Theatres sold old show The Shipment directed by Kayvon Khoshkam and Omari Newton.

Featuring: Chris Francisque, Kiomi Pyke, Adrian Neblett, Andrew Creightney and Omari Newton

 

The New York Times says “Cultural images of black America are tweaked, pulled and twisted like Silly Putty in “The Shipment,” a subversive, seriously funny new theater piece”. Theatre Mania calls The Shipment “An insightful piece about black identity politics that is daring, provocative, and very, very funny.”

Biting satire at its very best, The Shipment is a subversive modern minstrel show about Black identity meant to wake the world to the ridiculous narratives in dominant media. Five Black actors play a roster of characters that reads like a bad b-list of Black iconography: Video Ho, Crackhead John, Bad Cop, Standup Comedian, Drug Dealer Mama, Grandma from Heaven, and Record Company Executive, to name just a few. The brazen mash-up of these stereotypes with clichés, distortions, and brilliant sleights of hand all force us to go beyond the lampoon and shift the lens through which we perceive race in order to confront our own bias.

Cop & A Half 2 – KeyArt – Universal Pictures

Photographed the key art for Universal Pictures Cop And A Half: New Recruit, it was a fun day working with the legendary Lou Diamond Phillips and the up-and-coming star Lulu Wilson. New Recruit is a sequel to the 1993 Cop and a Half with Burt Reynolds and Ruby Dee.

Grizzled veteran detective Mark Simmons (Lou Diamond Phillips) can’t seem to catch the “Badge Bandit” – the city’s serial prankster who’s causing mischief and embarrassing the police. Karina Foley (Lulu Wilson) is a spunky 12-year-old who dreams of being a cop. She stumbles on Simmons’ stakeout where she proves she’s got serious detective skills and tech-savvy smarts. While Simmons wants to ignore Karina, the police captain does the unthinkable and teams them up. While on their mission to stop the “Badge Bandit,” the unlikely duo goes on a hilarious, action-filled adventure!

As always it was a pleasure working alongside the local film folks. We shot the gallery out in Maple Ridge at The Ridge Studios.

BC Hydro- Advertising Campaign – TAXI

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of working with the great creative people at TAXI‘s Vancouver office for a small Spring Lighting advertising campaign for BC Hydro. The campaign was shot as a collage so the images would both work individually as well as together next to each other as platform posters at skytrain stations around Vancouver.
