Crossing Over

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

I don’t watch television much these days, the local news, live sports now and then, maybe one or two shows during the week. Our only connection to the outside world is rabbit ears, but even if we had a dozen channels I suspect I wouldn’t watch a lot more. But I have become a student of TV drama on the CBC since that’s all we get. I once worked in CBC TV drama, and

Cinema Seats

Cinema Seats

The Holiday break was a busy time at City Cinema, as we had just four days to install our Christmas present for our customers—brand new seating! Though our original chairs have served us well, they were used when we bought them 16 years ago and weren’t getting any springier. The new ones have higher backs and deeper foam, providing a lot more comfort—not to mention cup-holders.We also reconfigured

Int. FX Studio/Computer Lab–late night

I expect Fox Henderson to be kind of shy, but as he enters the lab, he warns me that he’ll probably swear a lot. He doesn’t. He does, however, have a lot of film projects, both behind him and ahead of him, to discuss.

Dave: What got you in to movie making?

Fox: When I was a kid living out in Murray Harbour North, there was no
