MEET ME AT THE HAUNT / BROCKTON HAUNT / COMMERCIAL (2022)
Meet Me At The Haunt was our approach to reworking the Greek Odyssey, peppering in a cast of real Canadian artists in a surrealist Toronto where skateboards are the main way to get around.
The shoot took two days and we finally got a chance to take over the Toronto Reference Library, which was always a personal dream of mine, and every bit as majestic as I imagined. We didn't use a whole lot of the library but there's something magical to being in a big space filled the knowledge of the world, and where you are forced to whisper. What could be better.
All skating and skateboard expertise came from Yumi, Ju, Grant and pals from the Brockton Haunt community.
Always imagined a three part series to this story. Who knows, maybe one day.
