Not long ago, handwriting was taken for granted as something anyone could generally do well. Today, children are taught how to type on tablets - putting pen to paper is an afterthought.
INK follows Tanja Tiziana - a freelance photographer in Toronto, Canada - and her journey to rediscover the written word. The short film was produced by Ryan Couldrey, a Toronto filmmaker with terrible handwriting.
Ryan is a filmmaker in Toronto with terrible handwriting who produced, directed, DOP'd and edited SNOW, a 77 minute feature film adapted from a graphic novel in 2014. You can watch it for free online.
He also shoots commercials, live action video game trailers, web series and trailers for local theatre companies. Ryan is also a fierce advocate for #womeninfilm - the more women in front of and behind the camera, telling stories about women, the better.
Tanja is an Artist & Pro Photographer based in Toronto, Canada. She specializes in editorial photography and stills for film & television. She is also the Managing Photographer at Yonge Street.
Tanja blends digital and analog processes to create works that explore the style and substance of past eras within the modern metropolis. Her street images and mixed media works aim to blur the line between past and present, offering the viewer a glimpse of the ghosts of the past they might otherwise only have known in dreams.
