Earlier in the year, I was lucky to meet with five lovely and talented Vancouver-based film figures. Phil Planta, Mayumi Yoshida, Nach Dudsdeemaytha, Jerome Yoo, and Lee Shorten shared their thoughts on projects that have won them fame and admiration. This is part 2 of our program which focuses on specific details about their films. Check out part 1 to hear about their coming together and 3 key organizations that have helped drive their careers forward. Below are samples of their work. We will be sure to update as full versions of the filmic wonders we discuss become available.
