"My love affair with IMAX started at the Edmonton Space Science Centre when I was 19 years old ... I saw my first film there because a friend had suggested it might be a good place to take a girl I was trying to impress -- I'd enjoy telling you the story tomorrow, since I wound up marrying her many years later. Susan and I were totally engrossed by the large screen and spent a long time afterwards talking about the film and the experience, and it was really that night that I'd decided and expressed the goal to make a career of it. It is always quite moving for me to sit in the theatre at the Telus World of Science and watch a film that I've shot, because I am always close to the memory of having first sat there as a kid with crazy aspirations to be a part of it."
