HBC Heritage Trail Documentary

Gear Porter

Production has begun on the HBC Heritage Trail documentary. Big thanks to Kelly Pearce at Hope Mountain Centre and trail expert Kelley Cook for helping facilitate our visit to Jacobson Lake and Palmer’s Pond. In celebration of Canada’s 150th, HMC hosted a hike along the famous fur brigade trail. Thanks also to the Back Country Horsemen of BC, fur trade historians and costumed interpreters as well as camera assistant Brandyn Steele. We’ll be hiking the 74 km route from Hope to Tulameen near the end of August. Please visit our GoFundMe campaign for more information. Thank you to the Okanagan Similkameen Parks Society for supporting this project.

Hand-crafted Video

“People are very into small, hand-crafted. They’re used to seeing it in their neighbourhood.”

– Harley Smith, Longwood Brewery

It’s really satisfying working with people who love what they do. Thanks to Ginger and the Okanagan Fest of Ale team for inviting us to be part of the 2017 event.

The Okanagan Fest of Ale was established in 1996 making it one of the largest and longest running annual beer festivals in the Pacific Northwest.

Operating as a non-profit society, managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, the Okanagan Fest of Ale Society hosts an annual Consumer Craft Beer and Cider Tasting that functions to support and promote the growing world of quality craft brewery products, promote local tourism and support charitable organizations within the Regional District of the Okanagan-Similkameen.

As of October 2016, $577,660 in net proceeds has been gifted back to qualifying registered charities.

From The Dark Water

We’re proud to share our new video featuring Dubh Glass Distillery in Oliver, BC. This project was a pleasure to work on. Not only did we get a behind the scenes look at what goes into making craft spirits, we also saw the passion Grant Stevely has for his art. Stevely is a student of the industry. He has travelled across Canada and the United States attending workshops on both distilling and distillery operations. As you’ll see in the video, Stevely loves to talk about whisky and complex quality spirits. Enjoy.

Hiker and Goat Meet near Giant Cleft

This is one of our favourite photos from the past few years. We came across an intrepid goat on the rocks at Giant Cleft, while hiking in Cathedral Provincial Park and Protected Area. The goat didn’t seem to mind having company. This photo was short-listed in the 2017 Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival Photo Competition. It will appear on the big screen throughout the 20th Anniversary VIMFF (Feb. 10-18), along with other short-listed and winning photographs.

Nepal Winter Village – Mountain Landscape Category

Nepal Winter Village won second prize at the 14th Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival Mountain Photography Competition. This photo was shot on a small Sony digital camera. The mountains look like a Hollywood backdrop. This tiny village is uninhabited most of the year. It is located just north of the Annapurna Circuit at an altitude of about 3720 m. We stopped here during a three week trek with Mick Bromley of Wilderness Trekking. During our adventure, we produced a four-part TV news series called Islanders in Nepal.

We’re producing a short documentary about the Hudson’s Bay Heritage Trail. To fund this independent project, we’ve launched a GoFundMe Campaign. Check out the story in the Penticton Herald. By sharing this story, we hope to encourage others to help protect and preserve this historic trail. The film will be submitted to a number of film festivals and then shared via social media.

The HBC Trail was completed in 1849. Originally a First Nations route for hunting and trade, the HBC Trail played a key role in British Columbia’s early development. Since 2009, significant progress has been made in re-opening this historic fur trail over the Cascades. Hikers and horseback riders can now enjoy a continuous wilderness trail that spans 74-kms, between Hope and Tulameen.

Harley Hatfield and Victor Wilson travelled the HBC Heritage Trail in 1971. Both men were prominent Naramata residents and were well known throughout the Okanagan Valley. In the Okanagan Historical Society’s Report for 1972, Harley wrote about the trail, and Victor included his journal. Victor Wilson was filmmaker Sandy Wilson’s father. He owned Paradise Ranch at the end of Naramata Rd.

BC Hockey | Lessons From Behind The Glass

This is the first in a series of educational videos we’re working on with Groove-V Productions and BC Hockey. “Lessons From Behind The Glass” is a parent education series featuring author Allyson Tufts. The videos are designed to educate and inform parents about their actions and interactions during hockey games. The “Lessons From Behind The Glass” video series was inspired by the book written by Allyson Tufts. Video production took place in Abbotsford and Coquitlam. Post-production work was completed in Penticton.
