Over the course of two years I worked Stan Douglas and the NFB to create a detailed reconstruction of Hogan's Alley and Hotel Vancouver - two historically significant locations in Vancouver the reflect the post war economic and social realities of the time.

Using photographs and fire records, we endeavoured to create a faithful representation of what these locations looked and felt like. This involved working with historians to research and model hundreds of props, ~100 houses, 3 floors of the abandoned hotel.
