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.

Destination Osoyoos Cooking Series

This is one of the videos featured in a series we are working on with Destination Osoyoos and Groove-V Productions. The farm-fresh cooking series features various chefs from the region making delicious dishes. In this episode, Chef Jamie Hertz at Talons demonstrates how to make a Watermelon Gazpacho using local watermelon, cucumber and tomatoes as the main ingredients.

Great Canadian Wine

We really enjoy the creative process involved in making videos. It also helps when our clients are fun to work with. That was certainly the case with Virginia and John Weber at Orofino Vineyards. Not only did we have a great time collaborating with them, we also learned a lot about what goes into making award-winning wine. Orofino was ranked #18 at the 2014 WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada in Penticton. Congratulations.
