Diana Thorneycroft Discusses Group of Seven in Art Video

We had the opportunity to meet and interview Diana Thorneycroft at the McMichael last week. She talks about her work as being elaborately stages like producing a movie of just one frame. She talks about creating new stories using Group of Seven art as background and theme. A story that blends Tim Horton's Double Double, the seal hunt, GI Joe, Tom Thompson making love in a tent, a mysterious German watching, Bobby Orr, Hockey on the Don River, the Avro Arrow, Snow White and Bob and Doug with the Group of Seven just has to be a truly Canadian story. We added just a bit of DigitalJuice to the HD footage of Diana speaking. The video is destined for YouTube and http://www.mcmichael.com/
