“I would like to personally express my support for the documentary project THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE. Not only does the film and website concept speak to me directly and my own views on animal welfare, the project is shaping up to be one of the most creative, intriguing initiatives I’ve come across in many months. The emphasis on Canadian art and photography is also an important element in regards to this project. Having made my own career in Canada as a musician and songwriter for 13 years, I understand the hard work and detail that goes into making new media in this country. I look forward to seeing THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE come to fruition.”
