definately agree....the concert footage is great...very well done movie, for sure...on a personal level, i thought there were some moments that you would have been great to see on film again, namely from Grand Theft Bus' set, but then again, i certainly have no idea what they had to work with in the editing room...overall, a couple thumbs up from this cat...and jaydawg...cleary, i assume? i got your email, bro, i'll send you a disc of the high plains drifter images from there ASAP...i'll also send you a proper email about it...just didnt want you to think i forgot about it...

I'm pumped to get those photos...

did any one see the evolve photos Scott did?

check 'em out here:


I think the colours and shots are awesome... Being a photographer must be a great way to get close the band...

The EVOLVE Film has yet to be released in Atlantic Canada, the momentum is building folks!

Check the recent review:

Review: E4 by Kate Holloway

A new film offers highlights from an intimate Canadian jam/beats festival held every year in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Dubbed E4, for the fourth annual Evolve Music and Awareness Festival, the film is not so much a documentary as a series of concert vignettes culled from the best moments on the main stage, a picturesque barn with a massive sunflower affixed above the stage.

The folks at Evolve spared no expense on the stage footage, employing multiple camera angles and a tracked steadycam directly in front of the stage. The results are intense close-up shots of the performances as well as the blissed-out audience, captured directly from the rail. Interwoven with the performances are great shots of the festival-goers, sunning themselves, attending workshops, and wandering around the spectacular farmland venue.......

haha, cheers jay, very much appreciated...

yeah, its definately a great way to get close to the band (provided the bands dont mind that i get that close..wouldnt wanna tread on their turf, haha), and its really just a different way to experience the music...you kinda get to "see" the music take shape in a different way....its weird, but thats mainly why i like doing it...

i was never there, but i got a copy of the show last week, and i'd have to say that is is a good mucis video, and the wassabi jams rocked, but considering i wasn't there and am thinking of going this year i would have really liked to see a few shots of what else was going on,, it didn't really give a good idea what the festival was like.
