This episode of The Odyssey of Petal & Moth features the catalyst for the film project; the final intersecting line that created the story. He is the inspiration behind various key elements of the film including numerous scenes, the lead character of David, and his namesake character Elwin, in which he offers a wonderfully genuine cameo appearance.
Part collector, part artist, part tinkerer, part eccentric - introducing the ever entertaining and thoroughly individual Elwin Dalgleish. Listen as he and host Colleen Furlotte discuss his presence throughout Petal & Moth, their friendship, candy, bugs and landlines, and the wonders of being weird.
The Odyssey of Petal & Moth was inspired by the stories behind the making of a story. Or to be more precise, the making of a film. A micro budget one. An indie one. One made with unknown actors. From a little known community. In an overlooked Canadian province. A film that almost never was. And almost never was again.
We are the seen and unseen of this project. The performers. The song creators. The set builders. The prop makers. Those who inspired. And those who carried. We are the community of Petal Moth. And these are our stories.
