Island Imagemakers
by Dave Stewart

Dave Stewart: What’s your filmmaking background?

Dave Ward: I started in University. I worked in the UPEI AV

Mille Clarkes

Mille Clarkes

Island Imagemakers
by Dave Stewart

Mille (pronounced Mill-ah) Clarkes helps other filmmakers get their projects done.

Here’s part of her’s:

American Classic

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

What makes a movie touch us, resonate? With such a collaborative, highly artificial form of narrative it’s hard to say, but sometimes the combination of script, actors, cameraman, director creates something like art. In my CBC days I saw filmmaking from the inside, and given the cost, the organizational difficulties, it seemed a wonder that anything made sense at

Timepiece

Timepiece

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

In 2001, Hilda Woolnough was working on a major exhibition for the Confederation Centre of the Arts. The exhibition, called Timepieces, was a musing on time and the impermanence of everything.

Merest Moments

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

We are driving back from John Hopkins’ screening of Timepiece, his almost-completed film about his mother, Hilda Woolnough. The film takes its name from the major

John Hopkins

Imagemakers
by Dave Stewart

I’ve known John for a long time through osmosis via the local film community. I’ve seen some of his projects, I’ve been a member of the Island Media Arts Co-op with him, and I’ve had chats with him, but I’ve never gotten in-depth with him about what makes him tick film-wise. Here, in less than 550 words, is an attempt to get at the tip of the iceburg.

Dave: I imagine you
