A FEATURE DOCUMENTARY DIRECTED BY EMIL AGOPIAN
THE TRUE NORTH PROJECT
"I commission many new music compositions and some dance works, as well working regularly with graphic artists. I am always looking for original voices that will distinguish our creative projects. Emil is the type of distinctive creator I enjoy working with. His work looks and feels ‘different’ without being quirky or contrived. His films speak eloquently and clearly in a sophisticated but natural manner. They make me pay attention."
- Paul Dornian, President & CEO
The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra
"It is not often that I come across as passionate, creative, capable, and impressive a young artist as Emil Agopian."
