Bounty - The Greatest Sea Story of Them All

Geoff Geoff DEon has completed a book to be published in Fall 2018 on the subject of the tall ship Bounty. The book will tell the story of the 18th century British Navy ship, HMS Bounty, and the famous mutiny popularized in books and film (see Mutiny On The Bounty); the building of the replica for MGM in 1960 in Lunenburg NS; the troubled history of the replica culminating in her dramatic sinking and loss of life during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. The book stems from the award-winning 2014 documentary Bounty: Into The Hurricane (Tell Tale Productions). The 2018 book wil be published by Formac Publishing.

Body Languange Decoded - Nominated in Best Documentary Category, 2018 Screen Nova Scotia Awards

Originally completed in early 2017 for CBCs the Nature of Things, Body Language Decoded (international version) gets its theatrical premier on September 17 at The Atlantic Film Festival. The documentary takes the viewer inside the intriguing world of non-verbal communication. On every continent and in every ethnicity, expressions of emotions such as happiness, surprise, anger and fear are universally recognized. These expressions are hard-wired into our facial muscles for reasons that have everything to do with human evolution and survival of the species. To the trained observer, more is revealed by studying the way people move than by listening to what people actually say. The documentary was written and directed by Geoff DEon. Produced by Edward Peill. Cinematographers: Wade Cornell and Kevin Fraser; Edited by Warren Jefferies. Score: Asif Illyas. Online: 902 Post; Audio Mix: The Hideout Studios.
