Another unique and interesting shoot with our friends at Bell Media Toronto. Amazing Race Canada Auditions was in town and we provided location sound. CTVNewsOttawa was there too. If you look closely enough you may see Jon Lebrun’s boom mic as he and cameraman Stephen Gelder get in close on the contestant action.
Last years NHL Finals between the San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins inspired Don to shoot HNIC segments in the mouth of the shark! And our buddy Jamie Baker, the colour commentator of the Sharks tv broadcasts sent us a link to one of the best mic’d up videos out there (The Best of Mic’d up San Jose Sharks ).
As you may know, Jamie was the #13 SJS hero for scoring the series-winning goal for the San Jose Sharks in the seventh game of the 1994 Western Conference Quarterfinals against the heavily favored Detroit Red Wings. He put us on to the great San Jose Sharks video production group headed by Dustin Lamendola. Check out their video on YouTube And then get out there and buy this years Rockem Sockem 28 !
Once again we are proud to be associated with Don Cherry and Tim Cherry, and to be the producers of Rock’em Sock’em for TPC Productions.
In October, we enjoyed the good fortune of being called upon by Polytechnics Canada CEO Nobina Robinson and her tremendous staff, to produce and package promotional content that would be presented at a major event to be held at the prestigious Rideau Club.
The special guest and keynote speaker was The Hon. Bardish Chagger, Minister of Small Business and Tourism and Government House Leader.
The Polytechnics Canada guests for the November 15th event included the Board of Directors, Presidents of Canada’s largest polytechnics and colleges, along with a select group of their employer partners, students and recent graduates. It was an excellent important event with outstanding presenters. And a pretty good video too… Thanks to the tremendous work performed by the participating member schools from across the country.
The production task was to compile nationally produced videos featuring significant student/private partnership projects from eleven member schools. The deliverables were a short promotional video that would be distributed on multiple-platforms, and a hour long show that presented the individual projects in detail showing off the high quality work being done by Canada’s leading polytechnic schools.
