Debut unveiling at Owen Sound Transportation Company’s “An Evening with TOM: Sunset Dinner Cruise on July 8, 2015:

ABOUT OSC MEDIA HOUSE: The OSC Media House is an adventurous, award-winning film-based artistic collective operating out of the Bruce Peninsula and Georgian Bay region of Midwestern Ontario, Canada.  Commissioned by the TOM as part of the Gallery’s Canadian Spirit Project, the featured film “Chimo” presents an in-depth look into the environments and authentic Canadian spirit of the last great wild of southern Ontario: Grey County and the Bruce Peninsula. Title: Chimo – “Incorporated into English by an act of the Federal Government of Canada in 1967 in an effort to create a national greeting akin to ciao or aloha.”Chimo is an attempt at articulating the reasons why we choose to live here. Through a mash-up collage of exploratory film and video footage spanning the course of 5 years, Chimo is an ecclectic, poetic glimpse into the world of the local, and the trails not found on the tourist map.”

Premiere Screening of "Chimo" by OSC Media House on Wednesday July 8, 2015 aboard the M.S. ChiCheemaun
