S3E18 - When A Good Story Comes Along w/ David Malysheff
Show Notes

Last episode, we heard from one of the most requested camera operators in Canada, award-winning, daredevil cinematographer DAVID MALYSHEFF.  David is known for delivering the goods under extreme conditions - filming from horseback, helicopters, and even Zodiacs crashing their way through rapids.

This episode, David fills us in on his quieter, but no less moving, personal passion project - creating a 90-minute documentary on the late Jewish composer Peter Gary and Gary’s epic holocaust oratorio A 20th Century Passion. Listen in as David explains how holocaust survivor Gary worked to “Stamp Out Hate” through both music and lectures to 60,00 youngsters, what drew him to his story, and how the current situation in Israel and Gaza have affected crowdfunding to complete the film.

With more than 25 years of television production experience in film and broadcast video, David Malysheff has been behind the camera on numerous Canadian TV shows including The Nature of Things, The Fifth Estate, The Amazing Race, Moosemeat & Marmalade, Canada’s Next Top Model and the moving documentary Us and Them, which he also co-produced.
