A Song For Us - feature
Partly set in 1960's Yorkville - the era of coffee houses and folk singers such as Joni Mitchell, Buffy Ste Marie and Gordon Lightfoot - and present day Toronto. Like any ambitious film project, and especially one with a low budget and limited resources, there were many challenges along the way. I feel blessed to have had such a great crew who worked together tirelessly to help Peter achieve his vision. We had terrific actors and musicians playing characters from the past and present. Here's a few low-rez frame grabs from the film, including scenes shot in the location we used as the Penny Farthing, one of Yorkville's long lost venues.
Written and Directed by Peter Hitchcock.
Produced by Jeremy Campbell, Carly Granovsky, Peter Hitchcock, Molly Jane Knight
