My journey to becoming an artist is the subject of two recently released short films:
“Reimer Reason” was selected as a finalist in the Dirtbag Film Festival in Kimberley, BC (April 2019). This was put together by two very talented local film makers – Levi Froese and Jeremy Friesen – better known as Leroy and The Bean.
“Forging Ahead” tells the story of how, at the age of 15, I began my career as a blacksmith. It was shot by Cranbrook’s local cable tv station.
