A surreal evening filming an incredibly talented group of performers mashing silent film and live performance together in TIFF's cinema one.

The Grub-Stake Revisited combined the sepia toned silent film genre with live performance and on stage actors speaking lines. I captured a large portion of the performance in cinema one at TIFF Bell Lightbox with minimal stage lighting, a monopod and my feet. The syncing of the instruments is a slight conceit and I left some of the camera shake to soften the tone. It was a surreal night.
