This is the second of a two-part post on NXNE, a music, film and interactive conference that took place in Toronto this June.


“I just like to fill the awkward silences in between songs. I don’t really think about what comes out of my mouth until it does”


The film “What’d You Expect? The Archers of Loaf Live at The Cat’s Cradle” had the audience at the National Film Board feeling as if they were right on stage with the band, and in the crowd at the same time. Connecticut-based filmmaker Garman Bechard was so excited that the band was reuniting for a tour that he had to document a concert and put together a film that all music lovers would enjoy. The result is a pulsating, energetic, yet comfortable film that shows the humbleness of the band as well as the spontaneity and rawness of their performance. The bright colours and unique angles offer a different perspective from traditional concert documentaries. Band members were interviewed and the footage was intermixed nicely with concert footage so viewers could take a break from the concert and get to know the band. Check out the trailer here.

We will be documenting our own exciting adventure this coming August, as Karene heads to Uganda with H20 For All to film a documentary. She will be following the volunteers as they help build a much needed water tank that will send water supply to the local hospital. Check out the blog post, which details the trip here.

Make sure you stay tuned to the blog, our Facebook, and Twitter to hear all about this exciting adventure!
