Have you heard the rumour that librarians are awesome? We can confirm that.
Introducing the second of Vancouver Cycle Chic‘s four short films: Heart and Soul, starring Cecily.
Cecily is a librarian at the Vancouver Public Library Central Branch. Born in Atlanta, Cecily landed in Vancouver thanks to the flip of a coin (tails meant stay in Georgia). Biking has been a part of her life ever since she completed graduate school at UBC and made a conscious decision to minimize the distance between work and home.
Favourite quote from the film
“[Bicycling] puts the city on a human level for me, and it just makes me feel like I’m a part of the city instead of feeling apart from the city.”
Filming the moving shots meant pulling our director of photography around in a bike trailer usually used to haul beer, groceries or children. Keep an eye out for the rig on the edge of the frame around the 1:12 mark.
Next week we’ll release our third short film, profiling Shawn Henderson, who produces and DJs under the name “Bikes.” Check back here to watch it.
On Friday, July 5th we’re holding a party to celebrate what we’re all about: style and bicycling. Come on out!
