As you can see through our website, we are mostly a virtual company and celebrate the lack of commuting. However, there is one commute I’d do again and again if I could!
A few years ago I was directing a 1000 Islands video shoot where we used a twin-turbine Eurocopter to navigate the area. Each night we landed and stayed at turn-of the century Singer castle on Dark Island, then did it all again the next day. The pilot (Rob Marshall) and Red camera operator and DOP (Doug Holgate) were 2 highly talented, great guys and we had some memorable flights over 4 days of flying in Canada and the USA.
The resultant video has been used to tell dozens of River stories and illustrates well the kind of investment that goes into a cool shot, that lasts only a few seconds in a good video. The first video we created using this footage won the Best Economic Development award for Canada when submitted by the City of Brockville.
