Cinema-Trik is a human powered film projection system that has been created from taking a regular adult size tricycle and three 16mm film projectors and transforming them into a new age cinema experience.

Roger D. Wilson is an experimental film artist who lives in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Roger has a passion for telling stories that make people think. He believes film art can make a difference in society and can create conversation around topics that may otherwise be ignored. Roger takes a personal approach to telling stories and reveals many of his own personal life experiences in a manner that leaves the viewer wanting to know more. His films deal with society’s greatest challenges, the ones that affect the individual. His films look at mental illnesses like depression and paranoia; they deal with suicide and substance abuse. Roger has a lighter side to him as well and he creates many art films focusing on the process and the medium of film. Roger’s artistic practice begins and ends with film, super 8mm, 16mm and 35mm formats; his technical process is based on using the medium of film to explore new techniques and processes. His films are infused with thematically-related techniques such as layering images, adding textures and hand processing and printing the film. Roger is also founding member of The Windows Collective, an Ottawa based film screening group who create film installations and exhibit them in and around the City of Ottawa.
