Some filmmaking is done as deliberate preparation, where just about everything is known by the time the camera is picked up. Others prefer the opposite approach, where narrative threads are discovered, braided together and the making of the film is done when all the raw material is gathered together.
My guests today are Peter Evanchuck and Helene Lacelle, two filmmakers from nearby Chipman with a history of filming just about everything and then making partially-fiction narrative documentaries afterward. Two of their films, A Short History of Poverty and Searching For A Beautiful Bachelor, were debuted at this recent Silverwave Film Festival. We chat about the nature of film, their process for creating them, and everything else. To find out more movies they have made and look for screenings, visit their website.
