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.

Nature Photography

Spotted one of the locals during a hike at Cathedral Provincial Park.

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.

2011 VIMFF Mountain Landscape Category - Second Prize

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.

 

Communications and Event Management

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.’

ABM Vancouver Island

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

Creating a promotional video is a collaborative process. The producer and the client need to work together from concept to post-production. As an event planner, Steph Sielmann understands this concept very well. Not only did she have a vision for her video, she was willing to put in the time required to make it a reality. Steph also showed how focused she is on ‘game day.’ While the wind howled and the wedding guests arrived, Steph never wavered. She was the coolest person on ‘set.’

Shout out to Dave Mai (DM Productions) who captured the stunning drone visuals above Painted Rock Estate Winery.
