  • Charlie s Prospect is a video fable set to an original music score for choir. Set in Lower Prospect, Nova Scotia, Charlie s Prospect is based on a true story in which a folk artist tries to preserve the way of life in his small fishing community by building a replica of the village on his front lawn. One day a wealthy young family drives by and wants to buy the entire model village. The artist is faced with a dilemma that is resolved later that night, as fantasy and reality merge.
