Brief Description of Work:

Ripples in the Snow is a film that deals with the issue of remembrance. Memory, in its various interpretations, is the focal point for the film, which is supported for a concern for structure and photography. In addition, the film is on a basic level a document of my influences (the prairie landscape, filmmakers Michael Snow, Richard Kerr, David Rimmer, Bruce Elder, and also my family).
