My 2009 b/w super 8 motion picture film "Fixiology" is based on footage shot at the 2008 Cycle Messenger World Championship held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
This was my initial attempt to mythologize my former profession and hardworking former colleagues partaking in international competition. Event details are still available here, i.e. http://cmwc2008.com/.
My original intent was to focus on bicycles and the races specifically, i.e. men and women, muscles and speed. But the magnificent setting dominated by the majestic trees of Ward Island and the nostalgia triggered by so many familiar faces dictated the final edit.
