About


HiMYSYeD.NET is the Vlog / Videolog / Video Blog of HiMY SYeD.

HiMY began making stop motion animation films using Super 8 film under the guidance of artist Aiko Suzuki (sister of David Suzuki) in the early ’80s.

During high school, so much of his money was spent going to the movies, out of fiscal necessity, HiMY got a job at the world’s first and largest mutli-cinema Cineplex Odeon Theatre then located in the Toronto Eaton Centre. Thumbs up: he no longer had to pay to see movies. Thumbs down: Garth Drabinsky was his boss.

He appears in the film documentaries:

He performed camera work on the War Resisters documentary Let Them Stay (2005).

In March of 2006, HiMY helped compile footage for broadcast on Al-Jazeera of Toronto events in support of the release of James Loney during the Christian Peacemaker Team hostage crisis.

He curated his first Peace and Social Justice themed film festival during the One Big kNOw – Pro Peace Arts Festival in Toronto on March 12, 2006.

In his first run for Toronto City Council, he opened his campaign office inside the storefront of the Metro Theatre in Koreatown.

In 2009, he became a Founding Board Member of CLiFF, The Canadian Labour International Film Festival — The World’s First National Film Festival.

He appears in the Philip Maglieri filmGarbage Day“, a fly-on-the-wall documentary about the 2009 Civic Workers’ Strike in Toronto.

An Independent Photojournalist, his still images appeared in Threadbare and A Moment of Noise.

 



HiMY SYeD is currently (Summer 2016) based in Vancouver.
