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.
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.
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.

“ET2media was a pleasure to work with, professional and expert in the development
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.
Photo and media release featured in the Penticton Herald.
When we started ET2media in 2011, we decided to include communications and event management in our business plan. We’re glad we did. Working with the Penticton Farmers Market (PFM) has given us an opportunity to really enjoy the fruits of our labour. When the PFM was recognized as one of the best markets in BC, we immediately shared the story on social media. We followed that up with a media release and photo. The story was picked up by several media outlets and has helped us promote the upcoming market season. Sometimes it’s good to ‘toot your own horn.’
As a former broadcaster, Erick has emceed and moderated various events in BC and Ontario. Being on stage is something he still enjoys. Since 2013, he has emceed the Summerland Chamber Business & Community Excellence Awards. The event honours Summerland residents who are making a difference in the community. “Returning emcee was Erick Thompson of ET2media who kept the evening running smoothly with his quick humour and professionalism.”
Erin and Erick both volunteer with several groups and organizations in Summerland and Penticton including the Trout Creek Community Association, the Okanagan Similkameen Parks Society and Summerland Bike to Work Week.
On April 8 & 9th, Erick will be emceeing the 21st Annnual Okanagan Fest of Ale in Penticton.
Road trips are always fun, especially when you can combine work and leisure. I recently travelled to Nanaimo to attend the first Aboriginal Business Match on Vancouver Island. It was a busy trip but I was able to take a moment to visit friends and relatives. I worked as a radio and television broadcaster in Nanaimo during the 1990’s. It’s a great city with a lot going for it.
ABM Vancouver Island was held in partnership with the Snuneymuxw First Nation, the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council, Nuu-chah-nulth Economic Development Corporation, and the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance. Vancouver Island Conference Centre was the host venue. The next ABM event takes place in Penticton, BC from May 9 to 11. ABM events will also be held in Enoch, AB, Prince George, BC, Saskatoon, SK, Sault Ste. Marie, ON and Membertou, NS.
ABM delegates use sophisticated business matching technology to set up as many as 31 pre-qualified appointments that are 20-minutes in length. The ABM network currently includes one third of Aboriginal communities in Canada and more than 500 innovative companies. In 2016, the network is expected to double in size. -erick
