I met David Francey in the year 2000, while making my first movie for a university class project. The movie had to cover an environmental issue, so through mutual friends, I met David’s wife, Beth, who as a biologist became a subject in the film. While visiting Beth for my project, I was introduced to David, who came off as a quiet lad, the way his mom describes him in the film. Beth mentioned that he played music and read a lot, and that he had recently released his first album, Torn Screen Door.


Shortly after I finished the project, Beth called to ask if David could come by my place to record a few demo tracks on my computer. David and I ended up spending a long day and night recording his music, and as the session came to an end, he said jokingly that if ever he got anywhere with his songs, that I should be the guy who makes a movie about him.


David and Beth soon after moved back to Ontario to be closer to their parents, but we kept in touch over the years, and I keenly followed David’s career as he made the transition from construction to music. After earning 3 Junos and countless other awards, there was no longer a grain of doubt left in my mind that David Francey was worthy of having a film made about his life, so I took him up on his offer.
