VIDEO: NAC Presents #FOMO w/ A Tribe Called Red, The Lionyls, U.S. Girls & Mehdi Cayenne

In January 2016, the all Canadian singer-songwriters series NAC Presents celebrated 5 years of loving Canadian music with a live show entitled #FOMO featuring A Tribe Called Red, U.S. Girls, Mehdi Cayenne and The Lionyls.  Fantastic live art was provided by Ariane Beauchamp and Robbie of Ottawa’s Fall Down Gallery.  Seeing a national institution continue to surprise, inspire and reinvent itself up close through excellent curation, programming and execution is both awesome and encouraging.  It was a blast to be a part of the event and to try and distil the energy that was in the National Arts Centre that night into a brief film.  There was so much fun footage to work with that it was difficult to encompass a wide ranging showcase into 1 minute and 20 seconds, but I’m delighted with the results, and hopefully it succeeds in it’s task of giving you a case of #FOMO.  Filmed by Alexander Vlad and Alex Brazeau for the National Arts Centre.  Music by A Tribe Called Red.

EVENT: Ottawa Wine & Food Festival 2015

Over Halloween weekend, Alexander Vlad and Christopher Eades had the opportunity to be the official media lads for the 2015 edition of the Ottawa Wine & Food Festival.  Over the last 30 years the event has transformed into an institution, and in addition to industry folks, it consistently draws a curiously well dressed cross section of the general public.  The event video is in production now, but here are some of our favourite stills from the show.

DAILY EDIT: Glowfair #1

Shooting Glowfair 2014 was such an awesome experience.  In addition to working with some of my favourite production creatives, the event itself was a giant success and filled with vibrant performers.  Here are some shots of some of the cyber-circus performers during Hex Hector’s Bank Street DJ Set, which later turned into a several thousand strong silent disco after free headphones were distributed for the entire audience.  Mark Glowfair 2015 into your calenders if you are in the Ottawa region in July!
