Peter Zylstra

Michael Fletcher wisely spent his time filming in the junkyard near Comet Gold Mine, rather than the cyanide infested buildings of the mine site during our illicit excursion.

Like most great filmmakers, Mike studies how the scenery unfolds. He can predict when something interesting is about to happen, and be at the perfect place to capture it. Always watching, silently listening, he looks for the subtle moments or dramatic events that a single frame cannot interpret. Working with manual focus, which is unique to many filmmakers, he is able to articulate the point between the vastness and intimacy of the landscape.
