We’ve had a great break from the city recently working with Saint Mary’s University in eastern Canada on a series of interviews in the west coast town of Tofino. Its been great to be back here and the surrounding islands working with some of the community’s first responders and aboriginal leaders to document the great work they’re doing to prepare for a tsunami event in the area.
We’ve been spending the winter working on a few of our main production vehicles to make them even more capable and prepared for some of the more remote and isolated projects we have in the pipleline for this coming year. Its been great fun and now that the weather is changing its time to go and test them out….!
We’ve always maintained our commitment to producing the videos that got us started in this whole business, Live Acoustic Music Videos. This winter has been no exception and we’ve been working back to back on m music videos throughout the darkest months of the year. It’s been great to work with and collaborate with some of the Pacific North West’s most talented musicians and hear the art they’re creating first hand.
We had a great time last month working with our friends in southwestern Alberta, Prairie Grass.
We’re pleased to announce a new sponsorship with the wonderful Treeline Outdoors, a Calgary based roof top tent company. They’ve been good enough to supply our production team with a series of their top end high quality winterized roof tents which we will be attaching to our production vehicles pronto. We can’t wait to get out into the mountains and start shooting our beautiful province with the comfort of a nice warm roof tent to come back to at the end of every day!
We’ve been working this week with the wonderful team at Joint Health in Vancouver on a new video series that highlights the huge medical advances that have been occurring in the field of arthritis diagnosis and treatment. Its an amazing and important time in this area and the series we’ve produced for Joint Health will be part of the effort to inform and demystify the changes and developments that are happening in arthritic care over the next 12 months.
We currently are out on location in Nepal this month to work on the production of a documentary about the devastating earthquake that took place there in 2015 and meet the people who survived and have been rebuilding their lives since then. While there have been a lot of logistical challenges so far we’ve been gathering some incredible material for this new documentary which is due to bel released sometime in the fall of 2021. Our friend and colleague Jay Macmillan (former acclaimed lead editor at Sherpa Cinema) is the producer for this project having been deeply personally effected by the 2015 earthquake, an we couldn’t be happier to be working with such a talented and all around great guy on this project. Here’s a few shots of the production so far, more to come.
We’ve been spending a few days here on the West Coast working with our friends at the Canadian Green party developing promotional content for them as they seek to move ahead with their goals and ambitions for 2019. A wonderful group of people and always an inspiration to see the passion and drive with which they approach their work.
For the last few days we’ve been out on location in the Elk Valley working with our friends and colleagues The Narwhall on a new documentary to accompany their upcoming expose on the devastating effect that selenium deposits are having on the watersheds of lower BC due to mining practises. We’ve been working in some pretty challenging and freezing conditions but have been able to capture some fantastic content that will form the basis for the short documentary set for release in early December. Here’s a few shots of the team in action and some aerial photographs we’ve captured of the stunning impact that coal mining is having on the local area.
