A MONTREAL DOCUMENTARY FOR VIA RAILS- A COCOFILMS PRODUCTION
La VIA e bella – Part 1
Loved making this! The idea: two young artists discovering themselves as they cross Canada by train. For us, this would mean lots of great travel, interesting people and awesome food. The final word is still not in, but we won’t be going into full production anytime soon, so we figured we’d share it while we wait. One of the best things about this series is that we would be working with two brilliant artists: Sandrine Allard Perso and Dany Boudreault. They that have a regular show every Wednesday on TVA called Destiny.
In this first part we wanted to find out a little bit of the who, what, when, where, why and how of the story. The mood was automatic and our approach was documentary. We just shot what we saw. Granted, seeing is one of the most important aspects of documentary filmmaking.

CREATIVE DOCUMENTARY – LA VIA E BELLA PART 2 – A COCOFILMS PRODUCTION
This is the second part of what is to be a 30 part series. Here we wanted to capture the excitement and beauty that is travel: getting to the train station, meeting your friends, eating junk food, staring out into the roaming farmland. For us, getting there is always one of the best parts of any trip and we wanted to devote a short clip to the start of our travels. Throughout the rest of the series, we plan on exploring several interesting aspects of Canada; ones that are infamous and others that are not so well known. The Albertan Oil Sands, the Niagara Falls, and the Rocky Mountains will all surely be on the destination checklist, but so will hidden vineyards, remote rural communities, and aging fishing ships. All this by train. This means, comfortable seats, room to move around, a café on board, and big windows to relish the beautiful view.
