Echoes Across Seymour
For forty years Alex Douglas has lived atop Mount Seymour. An explorer, an educator and an avid outdoorsman, Alex has made a home for himself in one of the last remaining cabins on the mountain. When the resort opened in 1938 local skiers began building cabins to stay in during the winter season. At its peak there were more than 300 cabins on the mountain while today only ten are still standing. Alex’s passion for preserving the history of the mountain permeates every aspect of his life. He spends his days educating the public and exploring the hills for remnants of the forgotten cabins that once dominated the landscape. With a watchful eye and a curious mind, ‘Uncle Al’ has discovered dozens of abandoned cabin sites and put together an impressive collection of artifacts found on his adventures. As he reflects on his life, Alex hopes to inspire a new generation to explore and appreciate the mountain he calls home.
South Chair Media
South Chair was approached to work on a new project highlighting the new beer produced in collaboration between Postmark Brewing and Shaper Studios Vancouver. The project entailed creating a 2 minute short film that highlights the relationship between Postmark & Shaper Studios through the lens of a weekend surf trip to Tofino on Vancouver Island.
We shot for two days at a number of locations surrounding Tofino. Shaper Studios had their ambassador athletes come out for the weekend to provide some grade-A surfing for the shoot. With unbelievable weather and a great story outline there wasn't a bad moment of shooting.
Upon returning to the mainland we had an additional day of shooting on location at Postmark Brewing and Shaper Studios. These scenes were critical to tie their story together as we got to see the characters in their element to showcase their process and products.
We worked with Hops Connect to create a video which was played at the event that displays the brand’s story and image. This video features an interview with CEO, Don Konantz, in which he explains their operations and their development of the first Canadian patented and trademarked hop, “Sasquatch”. We paired this with cinematic visuals of the Hops Connect process and portraits of brewers from Vancouver who use their services.
Pacific Salmon Foundation
Pacific Salmon Foundation is a federally incorporated non-profit charitable organization dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wild Pacific salmon and their natural habitats in British Columbia and the Yukon.
We help them promote their initiatives in the lower mainland through the use of micro-documentary.
Most recently we produced a short doc that outlines a new hatchery near Victoria, BC.
