8 not-so-obvious picks for “This is for Toronto”
A capacity crowd attended the official screening for the “This is for Toronto” at the Solarium Wednesday evening.
Producer Sheldon Shaw, director Johnwoo Richardson and co-director Shawn Harris – which make up Potential Films – answered questions, which features the experiences of Toronto’s best and brightest talents.
It was mentioned there will likely be a second part to the series, as they couldn’t fit in the many people who wanted to be take part.
Here’s eight not-so-obvious candidates with some honourable mentions that we think deserve serious consideration in the next part of the “This is for Toronto” documentary film.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
These are in no particular order.
“Shep” gave Toronto a weekly dose of the international raving house music scene with his Friday Night (and Saturday Night) Dance Party, which was usually broadcast live on CFNY.
Sheppard has a unique insight into the city at one of the times when it was at its trendiest. But don’t take my word for it.
If “Shep” was Toronto’s audio DJ ambassador, Electric Circus host Monika Deol was the video dance recorder. Hosting the city’s best dancers in a 90-minute club format to the hottest tracks, Deol powered the show that became a cult hit for the window watchers peering in every show. Her insight into the cultural transformation of Toronto would be fascinating. Honourable mention for the CITY-TV visionary Moses Znaimer.
