2009 was International Polar Year. Interesting set of things around this personally and professionally. First I won the privilege of being the French voice "double" of Canadian actor Gordon Pinsent for a series of short vignettes that ran nationally in Canada on Global TV (English), and on TVA in French. Then when sharing the vids with my family, my brother in law, Bill MacKay (who is a government lawyer in Ottawa), told me that his department helped fund IPY in Canada. So now, we've been able to send him the French vids as a "proof of concept" for his department so they can see where the money went. Thanks to Dave Ryan at Global for the opportunity, Gordon Pinsent for his classy inspiration, Beau Shiminsky at Ear Candy for the direction and excellent sound design that completes the stunning visual presentation. In this video, I'm the French dude.
