Promotional video for the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21.

This project had the unique challenge of not depending on a script to follow. The goal was to show the history of Pier 21 as an entryway for immigrants coming to Canada, as well as showing that Canada continues to become home for newcomers, long after Pier 21 closed its doors as a port.

An important aspect to highlight was that though the factors that bring people to Canada are different, at times starting a new life can be bittersweet.
