Based in Saskatchewan, Canada, Preston Kanak is a filmmaker and time-lapse photographer. His portfolio includes broadcast and independent work with a focus on capturing the human condition as well as the environment they live in. For the past three years, Preston has been filming a series of three minute short films focused on creativity, collaboration and contribution. This project has allowed Preston to collaborate with filmmakers from around the world. At the height of the project in 2010, Preston managed to produce a short film everyday for the entire year.
With a focus on using new mediums and channels to share work, Preston has managed to expand his network into multiple countries with workshops and seminars being developed worldwide. Currently, Preston is producing an extensive educational series on filmmaking and freelancing as well as offering workshops across Canada — with the end goal of establishing an online educational resource for new media creatives.
