PETER EVANCHUCK hiding behind his cp16mm lining up the shot of SCOTTY. Picture is from decades back, when i was still shooting with either my Arri BL or my CP16mm cameras - the old CP16 is from my days shooting for the Wild World of Sports - in those days the reliable, durable CP16 was the industry standard since it also allowed a sound stripe to be recorded directly on the 16mm film - using reversal film stock meant that u process/print and go directly to air - so fast and cheap.

Things take time - ROBERTS book done draft hard copy today HUMAN ANIMALS thinking feeling like humans
Been working away on the ROBERTS' book selecting a few of his animal stories that will best represent his huge outpouring of such content. Few Cdn writers can equal his vast contribution to Canada's literary history. This book called HUMAN ANIMALS focussed on his animal stories. He and Ernest Thompson SETON originated stories that treat animals with brains and feelings not unlike ours. Since Roberts was raised in the vast, wild Tantramar marsh of N.B. he aquired a studied and deep knowledge of animal life which he drew upon to write his stories which became enormously popular during his lifetime. As a boy i read most of these stories and many linger in some memory cells so to return to them was a pleasure ... i had forgotten how well written they were, how philosophic and honest they were. Roberts sees nature as it is rather than as many armchair humans imagine it to be.
