Doing what you love for a living means sometimes you get to do it just for fun. A couple months ago, we asked a friend of ours—the fantastic Jeremey Zimmerman (whom we’ve filmed playing music before)—if he’d be into recording a cover of the song “The Saving One” by Starfield. It turned out early the next morning was most convenient time for all of us to shoot so within 24 hours we had it filmed. After over two months of post-production—mostly because a certain documentary shoot took much of our time—and a bang up editing job by our fearless intern Joanna, we are pleased to present Jeremey Zimmerman singing The Saving One from the rooftops.

In February of this year, myself and a few of my Vancouver friends visited Seattle to enjoy a concert and a weekend away. We stayed at the Coggins’ place, a family that my wife and I are close to and enjoy visiting. Their one daughter, Emily, has played me songs on various occasions that she had written. I’ve always encouraged that in her, because music it is a place that one can speak in such a way that words can’t do justice to. She always struck me as being genuinely authentic in her music, and this is something I enjoy seeing in an artist, sometimes more than the art itself.
In May of 2012, Storyspark and Transposition Films headed to the northern provinces of India to capture the story of Mia Kumari, a fashion stylist. While Mia’s story is yet to come, this is a peek at a bit of the footage we filmed along the way, edited together by Storyspark. Enjoy!
