George Whalley Film Biography

A short film biography of George Whalley is now available here. It has also been published on Youtube here. It is meant to be a concise introduction to Whalley’s life and works.

The film production is by Evan Wainio, an undergraduate film student at York University. He used photographs from the Whalley Estate, Queen’s University Archives, Bishop’s University Archives, Victoria University Library (Toronto), the Imperial War Museum, the German Federal Archives, and the Naval Historical Foundation. Some individuals also provided photos for the film.

The narrator is Brian Brockenshire. I wrote the script.

With some luck, the film will bring to Whalley’s life and writings some renewed attention leading up to theĀ conference in honour of the centenary of his birth to be held at Queen’s University, 24-26 July 2015.
