“Xanadu” by Hank Pine and Lily Fawn

Here it is folks. A new music video for Hank and Lily’s “Xanadu.” The song is from there newly-released album “North America.” Of course, it stars both Hank and Lily. I love this song!

They’re doing some touring this summer through Ontario and Alberta, and you can find the schedule on their MySpace page here. I could gush about how great Hank and Lily are, but instead I’ll just say – If you only see one show this summer, go see Hank and Lily. Seriously. Ask anyone who has ever seen the show; I wish I could describe it in words.

Here it is in action, the mechanical set that I built in the basement…too bad it’s only for a little bit of screen time, I’ll have to use it again for another film.

Memory Lapse

The newer pieces are still in the works. I was away in Vancouver and Whistler this week, collecting new footage, but had to bring the film back home for developing.
So, I’m putting up an older piece, called Memory Lapse. It won the “Best Short Fiction” award at the Lausanne Underground Film Fest, and screened at a bunch of different festivals. It also inspired an older video podcast that I did called “Other Peoples Memories,” that was clips of old 8mm home movies that I collect, strangers’ home movies. Michael Lee Macdonald did the animation, and Mike Wolske did the music. You can also find it on the MediaNet Video Podcast.

And, this week, we’re being featured on Miro, you can check it out here. It’s an Internet TV aggregator. There are more than 4000 different channels. Pretty cool stuff. And we’re listed at Canadapodcasts.ca now too.
