    The Thrift Store Sketches

    The Thrift Store Sketches

    With two framed sketches bought at the Salvation Army store in Guelph, ON, Canada, Erin decides to investigate where they came from and how they ended up there. She speaks to a few art experts from her community about the pieces and eventually to the artist herself. The piece is as much about Erin's journey as the sketches themselves. The piece serves as an example that no stories are small when told well. A sentimental and personal POV documentary. A short indie audio documentary/podcast produced by Erin MacIndoe Sproule of Anthroscope Media.
