HBC Trail Documentary

Trekking Through History | HBC Heritage Trail

Post-production editing is underway on this independent short documentary. It will be submitted to film festivals later this year and made available online as a free educational resource.

The Okanagan Similkameen Parks Society (OSPS) has provided seed funding for the documentary. We’d like to thank Hope Mountain Centre, Kelly Pearce, Kelley Cook and Randy Manuel for providing valuable input and encouragement.

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 South Okanagan 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 it in his journal. Victor Wilson was filmmaker Sandy Wilson’s father. He owned Paradise Ranch at the end of Naramata Rd.

Working with Raptors

We’ve been working with SORCO Raptor Rehab Centre since 2014. During that time we’ve collaborated with SORCO manager Dale Belvedere and board chair Dave Whitton on a series of educational videos aimed at promoting SORCO’s mission: “to rehabilitate injured birds of prey for release back into the wild, and educating the public on the important role raptors play in maintaining a healthy ecosystem.”  In 2017, Dale and Dave invited us to share SORCO’s message in a short documentary that would also provide an overview of the organization. The project was funded by Telus and Pumpkin Hill Foundation. For more information about SORCO, please visit their website. Found an Injured Raptor?

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.

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.

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.

Dream Big

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.
