The Express on Shaw

Back in December, I was interviewed for a segment about The Anonymous Photo Project for The Express on Shaw TV, here in Vancouver. The segment aired in early January, but since I don’t have cable, I wasn’t able to see it, or get it for all of you folks to see.

Fortunately, the kind people at Shaw were nice enough to send me a copy of it, and now, you can see it!

I cringe a bit every time I see myself on TV, but I think they did a good job!

This morning, I was interviewed by Brady Strachan, of Evolution 107.9, about The Anonymous Photo Project. The interview will air one day this week – I’m not sure the day – at about 1:20 pm or so. If you want to check it out, you can listen to it online on Evolution’s website.

Hopefully I can sound somewhat intelligent!

Update: I just got an email, from Brady Strachan, letting me know that it will be playing today at 1:15 pm or 1:20pm. I know it’s short notice, but, you can do it!

Just a reminder that The Anonymous Photo Project will be on Shaw TV today on a show called The Express. It’s on at 6pm, but, if you miss it, it airs a whole bunch of times over the weekend. You can read about the taping here, and the camera that gets dropped off during the segment has already been returned!

Camera #130: Shaw TV

December 18, 2008

Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /homepages/46/d90804986/htdocs/anonymousphotoproject.com/html/blog/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 82

On Monday, Shaw TV interviewed me about The Anonymous Photo Project. Since it was taped and not live I wasn’t as nervous as last time [Breakfast Television], but still a little bit. It seemed to go well, and hopefully they can edit out all my stuttering and stammering and make me look halfway presentable.

As part of the piece, I put together a package – I even prettied it up a bit by adding a tag to hopefully entice people – and placed it. I put Camera #130 on a chair outside of Chapter’s on Granville & Broadway. It’s been kinda cold here in Vancouver, and it even snowed, so people weren’t lingering around for too long, but, it did eventually get noticed and picked up. I’ll be waiting in anticipation at my mailbox waiting for a Christmas present!

I’m not sure exactly when it will air. I think it will be on January 9 – definitely in the new year. I’ll keep you posted as to when it will happen.

Breakfast Television: The Clip

October 14, 2008

Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /homepages/46/d90804986/htdocs/anonymousphotoproject.com/html/blog/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 82

Last week, I mentioned that I would be appearing on Breakfast Television to talk about The Anonymous Photo Project. I was pretty nervous going into it, especially at having to wake up at the crack of dawn! I said it was going to be on between 9:00 and 9:30, but I was wrong – it was actually just before 8:30. Hopefully no one missed it, but, just in case, I’ve got it here for everyone to see. I don’t have cable anymore, but I was able to enlist the help of a friend to record it and get me a file – the miracle of technology!

I messed up a few times, and a few too many umms and ahhhs – though, really, that’s how I talk in real life – but not too bad overall. It still wierds me out to see me on TV.

Breakfast Television

Tomorrow morning, bright and early, I will be on CityTV Vancouver’s Breakfast Television talking about The Anonymous Photo Project.

This will be The Project’s first time to be featured on the telly, and it’s live! So, if you’re an early bird, be sure to tune in, and watch me stutter and stammer! I think my segment will be on sometime between 9:00 and 9:30 – well, I guess that’s not really being an early bird, it just seems so to me, since I’ll have to be there much earlier than that.

Camera #100: Granville Island, Vancouver, BC

May 10, 2008

Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /homepages/46/d90804986/htdocs/anonymousphotoproject.com/html/blog/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 82

On Wednesday, I went to Granville Island to film an interview on the project for BCIT Magazine. My first press!

We were down there for a few hours doing multiple takes and getting the right shots. Part of the story involved me placing a camera. Not only was this camera filmed while being placed, it was also the hundredth camera of the project – both in position, and ID number. Happy Hundredth Camera!

The crew wanted to film the camera from a distance to capture someone finding it and taking it away. We hid in a dark corner, hoping that no one would see the group of people around the TV camera on the big tripod.

I’ve never actually stuck around and watched what happens after I place a camera – although, when I placed Camera #71, I was still packing groceries into the rental when a couple of guys found it and exclaimed. I had to pretend as hard as I could that it wasn’t me!

It was definitely an interesting opportunity to watch and see what unfolds around a placed camera. It helped me to understand what happens to the cameras that never come back – no one notices them! We were in the corner for about 15-20 minutes, and then we moved to another area for another half hour to finish getting some other shots, and, for the most part, no one even saw it. Everyone walked by in oblivion. A few people saw it and glanced at it before carrying on, and fewer still picked it up to look at it before putting it back where they found it.

Then, finally, salvation… A group of about 50 school children on a field trip walked by. They chose to swarm the area where the camera was to sit and eat their sandwiches. Certainly, someone would pick it up, right? Wrong. Barely anyone even noticed it! One of the accompanying parents sat down beside it, finally noticed it, picked it up, examined it closely, then set it back down.

Around this time, we finished filming, and parted ways. I went back home, and, as far as I know, the camera is still there, being pelted with rain…

The BCIT magazine story has been posted on YouTube for everyone to check out. You can watch it below, or on YouTube.
