Welcome to Smash That Camera!
A bit of backstory...
Smash that Camera is Will Beckett, a Nova Scotia-born filmmaker, photographer, Web/graphics designer, and writer based in Charlottetown, PEI. A graduate of the University of King’s College School of Journalism (BJh, 1996), Will brings a documentarian approach to his film and photography work. His recent Web series, Arts on PEI (2011-2012), highlighted lesser-known aspects of PEI’s arts scene, enjoying two Island Media Arts Festival screenings during its brief run.
Will has also worked as a crew member in a variety of film and television productions. These include CTV’s The Amazing Race Canada (Season Two), CBC’s The Songs of Gene MacLellan TV special and a rare acting turn in the short film The Invasion of the Horrible Alien Brain Monsters from Outer Space by PEI filmmaker / prosthetics designer Fox Henderson.
Will is an avid hiker, snowshoer and snorkeler in his spare time. He also curates a respectable private collection of classic, and cult-favorite, movies from around the world, along with books covering the history of photography from its earliest beginnings to the present day.
