Untitled Project About The West
Francophones Thierry Marceau and Donald Abad will make a voyage out to Calgary and explore the great "Canadian West." Dressed as seasoned adventurers, they will live their dream traveling across the city of Calgary, stopping at five base camps installed in high-traffic public areas in the downtown core. They will have a green screen set up at each stop and film their adventure against this back drop, keying-in preconceived landscapes of the "Canadian West" in post-production. The final video will be screened at the end of the festival during a performative lecture about the journey; regular updates and images from their daily treks will appear on the M:ST blog.
We live far away from each other but we are on the same beat. Even separated, we can be together. We leave behind our well known surroundings for real adventures, virtual adventures.
