The Safe Handling of Liquid Oxygen (LOX)


The Client:
The Canadian Department of National Defence.

The Job: Make an instructional video (in French and English) showing how to safely transport and store liquid oxygen, used for breathing by hi-flying pilots.

Energy in Remote Communities


The Client:
The Canadian Department of Energy, Mines, & Resources.

The Job: Make s documentary (in French and English) to show the numerous ways Canadians were involved in pilot projects designed to conserve energy in remote areas of Canada like Dawson, YT left, and Grise Fiord below left, Canada's most northern settlement.

The Execution: We travelled to 12 different remote communities across Canada and prompted people to speak enthusiastically, directly to the camera, to explain their pet projects.

Their voice clips were illustrated with great photography showing the projects in the best light. We documented small and large hydro projects (like the blue wood chip burning plant being explained by Dan House, at Roddickton, NF), wind farm experiments, higher R value insulated houses, and steam for heat reclamation projects.

Epilogue: Great praise for the program so that we were contracted to make a short and a long version.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Friends Don't Let Friends...

The Client: The Canadian Government's Department of Justice.

The Job: To create a multi-cultural instructional video that would appeal to native and non-native Northern Canadian audiences and alert them to the dangers of drinking and then operating boats, skidoos, and ATVs.

The Execution: We designed a video intercutting people telling their heart-breaking stories of friends who died due to drinking and driving accidents. We featured accident recreations in between and showed northern people in numerous recreational driving sequences throughout.

Epilogue:  The Justice Canada Executive Director called the film "Excellent! No, better than excellent!"

Award: "Friends" won the Bronze Medal in Ottawa, ON, in a national competition which featured 78 top films made for federal and provincial governments that same year.

The film was widely distributed across Canada and the US.

In the years since, "Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Drunk" has become the rallying motto of anti-drinking and driving campaigns including those of the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and MADD (Mothers Against Drinking and Driving.)

A Route Through the Ages


The Client:
Parks Canada

The Job: A film for the Peterborough Visitor Center.

The Execution: We filmed the story of the waterway by taking a trip from Trenton to Port Severn on Georgian Bay. We used archival footage and photographs and intercut them with spectacular footage showing how the waterway looks and operates today. And we added numerous observations from holidayers speaking directly to the camera.

Epilogue: The Government of Canada Executive Producer called it the most beautiful film to come into their Ottawa office in years. It is probably Parks Canada's best selling video, with the Friends of the Trent telling us they have sold thousands of copies out of the Peterborough lift lock museum.
