Storyline

Vancouver Vagabond, a wacky and darkly candid autobiographical feature premiere and the 1st of a docudrama film trilogy from creator Heath Tait, explores his precarious journey through the 90's as a Gen-X indie artist & animator in and around Hollywood North, the city's politics and it's multi-color character. With the approach of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, the Vagabond series reveal a dramatic slice of both the city's and Canada's back story, historic and contemporary, informative and provocatively entertaining. Heath's personal story is seated firmly within a landscape of postmodern times, archival footage from five sources detailing Canadian and American times past. Written by Heath Tait

Trivia

Joe "Shithead" Keithley, hardcore punk rocker parodies the troubled Rock Star "Pink" (Roger Waters/Syd Barrett) sitting alone in a chair amidst a barren, surreal landscape in a scene often referred to by Heath Tait as the "Joe-Snow" or "Unreachable Star" scene. It was shot Jan 8, 2005 on a rare, opportune day in mild Vancouver, on a rare and opportune open and barren scrubby land in the middle of the city, homeless hovels in the rubble nearby below the unique fully open skyline, crows playing mischievous tricks on the crew, swooping down through the shots- positively fortuitous in this case. The recurring theme 3x throughout the feature made use of all best angles, the shoot ending almost perfectly on time as it grew too dark for exposure, using the Eclair Super 16mm, 320T film. Heath recalled: "the camera's shutter speed had to be slowed a stop or two after maxing out the lens aperture for the final shot. Those old multi-speed 70's cameras were such fun... what spirit".
