Glass Houses has a new editor! Cameron, our current editor is assistant editing on three features so he reached out to some friends and provided me a short list. It was difficult to look beyond one, Shun Ando, because I had seen the short film he edited at the East Van Showcase in May. It was my favourite. Akashi won for best actor and has since gone on to win best writing at the NBCUniversal Shorts from over 4,200 entries. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooGFDEVgZS
We are looking to have a picture lock by December 21st. Shun was born in Japan, grew up in Bali and Switzerland, and is yet another talented grad from CapU. He is also the consummate cinephile.
Brooklyn 1969, Apollo 11 is about to land on the moon and young Cathy’s determined to buy a new television to watch history unfold. When it doesn’t go to plan, Cathy’s dismay turns to sadness, and it takes an intervention from a neighbour and a moon ball to change the course of her life.
