Starting in 2009, Andrew Lavigne, Jon Ornoy and crew of filmmakers have documented the origins of the True North Media House campaign as my colleagues and I sparked a conversation about the role of social reporting during the Vancouver Olympics in a film called “With Glowing Hearts.”
In all my projects, I extol the importance of recording and contextualizing the changes in the civic landscape in the midst of significant world events and these indie filmakers are demonstrating a stellar example of the role of creative arts in the offering this context.
Along with True North Media House, the With Glowing Hearts crew documented the W2 Woodwards arts project and April Smith and AHA Media.
I encourage everyone which an interest in social change and media r/evolution who living in, or visiting to, Vancouver to watch this clip about True North Media House as well as the aforementioned clips.
Andrew Lavinge sets up the clip thusly:
