A creative space in the country, dedicated to nurturing community in the arts. If you have a project in mind -- music, film, or photography -- or wish to help artists in their development,
please stop in for a visit and we'll have a conversation. We are located in the beautiful Lakeland region of Alberta, on an acreage, 30 minutes drive north of Vermilion (Hwy 16 and 41).
Northern Rain is a meeting place for musicians and artists. Film screenings, jam sessions and recording bring people together for a variety of projects.
We're also a community across borders as we partner with Latin American groups. Home made apple cider (seasonal) is on-the-house!
We welcome projects and partnerships which offer opportunities for artists -- young and old -- to develop their skills. Workshops, radio drama, film, & multi-media.
My photojournalism work began many years ago in Latin America, my essays include stories in Ecuador, Guatemala, India, and Canada.
Northern Rain has produced many hours of original radio drama, dialog replacement, and other soundtracks for broadcast and other applications.
Our studio is housed in a rebuilt barn from the 1930s, with a 25 X 15 foot theatre and recording room with cathedral ceiling. Just above is the editing suite
with state-of-the-art tools including a 32 channel Tascam mixer, all the Adobe products & Steinberg's Cubase.
