A Precarious Age CoDirector - Siobhan McKenna Stylist - Terran Veda Makeup - Angie Canning Location - Stratford, Ontario This past Summer I was talking to Siobhan McKenna about how I want to do a big shoot where I can show off all my skills simultaneously, and not worry about the budget for once. Buying and making props can be expensive and time consuming, and it always drains my spending money when I want to be creative. We went out for a coffee and brainstormed ideas around a hippy shoot that we could use Evan's 80's Chevy Van in. Before long we got the ball rolling, and had the structure of the shoot written out. We met up every couple days, and continued to come up with game changing ideas. In early September we started the Kapipal page where we had a video explaining our goals, and asking for funding. It was a huge success, and so we started casting, and planning shoot dates for October. We managed to cast all friends for this, and I truly thank every one of them for showing up and helping out. There were some early mornings, and some late nights. October was the busiest month for this project with shoots every couple days. For every shot we did we had to rent and return costumes and props from the Stratford Festival Prop Warehouse. We finished shooting the project in mid November, and I finished compositing the photos in Mid December. I'm very happy with how the series turned out all in all. It's somewhat complex, but everything is there for a reason. If you have to go back to look at earlier pictures to make sense of everything, my mission is accomplished. A big, "THANK YOU" goes out to everyone involved, and all the donators. I couldn't have achieved this without you. Jonathan
