Brief Description of Work:

Daybreak is a formal portrait of the Saskatchewan north, shot on Super 8, VHS, and DVCAM. The footage was shot at night, and the colour was inverted in the editing process to make it appear as if it were shot during daylight hours. This project is an attempt to strip different images down to their basic elements, to examine their photographic possibilities, and their connection to a larger "Canadian" identity. Original Score by Jason Moberg.
