Starting back in early April when the pandemic first hit, we decided to create something with our friends to distract from the chaos and be collectively creative. Out of that came the CO-VIDeo Quest, a communal film project revolving around a tennis ball we called the “Globe of Hope” that needs to find its way back home. We filmed the beginning and end with our friends from Absurd Turd Media, Amoral House of Cards and The Snowking Winter Festival and the submissions make up the middle. This was pure joy to make and it gave us the creative distraction we all very much needed. It premiered in Yellowknife on April 8, 2020, at Yellowknife’s first Drive-In Movie experience!
