Born above the fertile filmmaking soil of Winnipeg, Canada and raised in rural Manitoba, director and cinematographer Mike Maryniuk is a self-described “self taught film virtuoso” boasting a rich catalog of hand-altered celluloid to back up the claim. Mike’s films serve as a boiling scrapbook for an overlooked subset of the Canadian prairies, giving big importance to small-town concerns and promoting an appreciation of many wilderness-adjacent interests.

Delivering contemporary imagery through the enamel of age, the home brew films of Mike Maryniuk are a carefree nod to good old-fashioned prairie life, leaning on electric visuals and dynamic sound as the key ingredients to understanding the value of country living. Dig out your toque and let ‘er rip.

A pixallated documentary about cattle auctioneers and their hypnotic verbal mathe"magic".
