Lake Morning
A short film edited from footage shot during an early morning kayak on Jack Lake, Ontario. I started out just to shoot some stills, but also did video along the way. Not the best filming conditions, shooting hand held on the water in a kayak, with a less than ideal camera. But it was a peaceful clear morning.

Directed, filmed and edited by John Farr.
Shot with a Fuji X100.
The music was composed for the film and performed by Adrean Farrugia.
Performed on a Shigeru Kawai SK7 piano
The score was recorded at Merriam Music in Oakville with recording engineer Mike Tompa.
Special thanks to Mara for rising at 5:30 am to participate in the project.
Length 3:30
