This is the movie theatre in my hometown.

It was built in 1913, and like anyplace it is special to some and holds no significance for others. But for anyone who watched the vaudeville acts perform here, or the silent movies that would soon begin to talk, or perhaps kissed someone they cared for, it was a very special place. In 1976 I saw my first movie here.

ABOUT RED MAMMOTH

Red Mammoth is a media production company.

 

It was also the name I gave to a pickup truck my dad used to drive when I was a kid - an Ford F250 super cab. And yes, there is a woolly mammoth connection as well. We were always told they had originated in Asia and had migrated across the Bering land bridge, right down the Pacific coast, and likely even grazed in the areas around our hometown. It was my favourite animal.

Red Mammoth Media is mainly devoted to intercultural narratives, or the comedies and dramas that occur when we meet, meld, clash, and sometimes even get along - just like those migrating mammoths all those years ago...

Projects that engage and compel audiences to navigate cultural divides - this is what I always hope for in my current and future media initiatives.
