Warren P. Sonoda – At Home Here in Nova Scotia


Occupation: Filmmaker

Place of Birth: Hamilton, ON

Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a coffee?

Two If By Sea Dartmouth and Uncommon Grounds, Halifax

Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a pint?

I don’t really drink (well) but I love The Bicycle Thief, Halifax.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Nova Scotia?

The Casino. Is that shopping?

Where in Nova Scotia would we stand to see your favourite view?

On top of Julian’s trailer, Sunnyvale, NS. Or… the poker table at Casino Nova Scotia.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Nova Scotia:

1. Eat the Squid Ink Pasta at The Bicycle Thief

2. Go see a movie that Halifax filmmakers Jason Eisner, Shandi Mitchell or Caley MacLennan have made.

3. Try to win the bad beat jackpot at Casino Nova Scotia (or at least break even at the very tight tables).

What makes Nova Scotia such a special place on earth for you?

THE PEOPLE! – some of the kindest, funniest and most talented souls on the face of the planet plus they know how to cook and make you laugh. One of the best places on the earth to keep you real.

SABS Full Circle Moment

Click here to watch TEARING AT THE HEART OF ME by Stephanie Beaumont video directed by Warren PWay way way way back in the day when my day job involved being a recording artist - I co-wrote a song with my friend Stewart Harris entitled "Tearing at the Heart of Me" which appeared on my first album LOVE & DREAMS. When we decided to release that tune as a single my label Iron Music (under the BMG umbrella) found me a great director.....enter Warren P. Sonoda. Before that and since then WPS has directed countless awesome and award winning music videos for lucky folks like me.  I'm thrilled to have him featured on Sea and be Scene and happy to know he loves the East Coast as much as we do! Thanks Mr. Sonoda - you rock!!! xosb
