I have spent most of 2022 catching up on lost time from the pandemic by working on new feature film projects in the USA. Collectively titled The Heartland Project, I've been on location recording for these projects in the Bakken Oil Field of North Dakota during February and at rodeos throughout Oklahoma during the summer. This new film work is observationally-driven and explores alternative approaches to feature-length storytelling in documentary film. I'm excited to start working on these in the editing room this autumn.
