My good friend and fellow APUGer Mark Nowaczynski has won another major award with the NFB documentary House Calls, a one hour movie following Dr Mark as he takes care of some of his frail and elderly patients. He has been dragging around a 4x5 Linhoff and lighting gear for 8 years now and is working on a ground breaking photo exhibition that we hope tours from city to city.
House Calls won the prestigious Donald Brittain Award for best Social/Political Documentary Program at the 21st Annual Gemini Awards last night

What really suprises me is how the movie starts with my magical hands under the enlarger and then flipping prints to development. * this scene brings tears to my eyes* how did I not win an award for a supporting actor award.
go figure.
Anyways we at Elevator are very proud of Mark and wish him all the success with this very important photographic project.
