Bounty - The Book
Geoff DíEon is completing a book to be published in 2018 on the subject of the tall ship Bounty. The book will tell the story of the 18th century British Navy ship, HMS Bounty, and the famous mutiny popularized in books and film (see Mutiny On The Bounty); the building of the replica for MGM in 1960 in Lunenburg NS; the troubled history of the replica culminating in her dramatic sinking and loss of life during Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
The book stems from the award-winning 2014 documentary Bounty: Into The Hurricane (Tell Tale Productions). The 2018 book wil be published by Formac Publishing.
Body Languange Decoded - official selection at the 2017 Atlantic Film Festival
Originally completed in early 2017 for CBCís the Nature of Things, Body Language
Decoded (international version) gets its theatrical premier on September 17 at The
Atlantic Film Festival. The documentary takes the viewer inside the intriguing world
of non-verbal communication. On every continent and in every ethnicity, expressions
of emotions such as happiness, surprise, anger and fear are universally recognized.
These expressions are hard-wired into our facial muscles for reasons that have
everything to do with human evolution and survival of the species. To the trained
observer, more is revealed by studying the way people move than by listening to what
people actually say. The documentary was written and directed by Geoff DíEon.
Produced by Edward Peill. Cinematographers: Wade Cornell and Kevin Fraser; Edited by
Warren Jefferies. Score: Asif Illyas. Online: 902 Post; Audio Mix: The Hideout Studios. To watch trailer click HERE .
