http://vimeo.com/43567120 I finished this last year as my thesis film for my BFA degree, and made it available online recently. It's (surprise!) a post-apocalyptic story, very Road-influenced in terms of setting and the coming-of-age elements, but with an attempt to get into some of the theological implications of how Christians would try to maintain the liturgical elements of worship when everything has utterly collapsed. I originally came at it from an Anglican perspective (I was raised Anglican) but I think it plays more coherently for Catholic and Orthodox audiences. The Anglicanism I grew up in retained some reverence for consecrated hosts, and yet never articulated any inkling of the Real Presence; I approached the story from this perspective but didn't necessarily get some of the nuances it would have for those who believe in the Real Presence - at least, not until I became Catholic this year, a step that was helped by the process of making this film. It is what it is - a student film, with any number of things that drive me nuts now that I can see it from a distance. Flaws aside, I'm glad I got to make something on 16mm one last time. To have a chance to shoot and edit on film in the last gasping years of celluloid processing (at least in Vancouver) has been an absolute gift.
