"My love for the camera began at a young age. The National Film Board was my university. Once you’ve mastered technique, you’re home free. You can gamble a bit and experiment. At the NFB and around the world, we pushed our cameras and film stock to the limit. When we made 60 cycles, we used a 1000 mm lens from NASA that was more than 1 metre wide. The images were extremely compressed, and that became the first shot of the movie. That film really rocked the boat. It was essential viewing." Interviewed on Kodak Canada Web site
