The Barons // We Are Machines

The now defunct Barons of Beef was a provider of sustainable meat protein in the lower mainland. Their primary function was to deliver meat to athletes who are training for their craft.

Fun fact: Growing up playing ice hockey, I have a knack at carrying a camera while skating or rollerblading. In this spot, I chased the sprinter around the track using rollerblades.

Eastside Stories // Home

One of three separate documentaries created through Telus Optik TV’s documentary program. This episode explores the idea of ‘Home’ in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver and how its resilient residents stand in adversity and stay where they feel they’re welcome. A wonderful project that will always be big in my heart.

SAP | Work Connect

For this spot, a group of HR representatives go to complain about their tribes and tribulations of their work, tongue firmly planted in cheek.

Using fight club as a reference for lighting, the meeting room was meant to give a bleak environment to the group’s already saddened disposition.

The Cheese Collector // Bothwell Cheese

This spot was one of the weirder ones i’ve been involved with. A collection of short cheese related videos were compiled together to go on a channel called the cheese channel (sort of a netflix, but for cheese) and made by Bothwell Cheese.

Wiivv Sandals

Wiivv introduces the world’s first custom sandals. To create the effect of being on the beach and going through the studio we created a matte painting of the exact background to duplicate the lighting setup. It can be seen as she gets up and walks away from the set in the video.

Shangri-La | Toronto

We spent four days in the Shangri-La Toronto creating this video for their marketing campaigns in 2015.

BC Lions Fan Experience

During 2015 POV videos were all the ranges. Using a trusty 14mm Canon C-NE Prime and my own stunt hand, we created this speedy video leading up to the BC Lions / Roughriders game at BC Place.

The game itself was actually quite low scoring and uneventful until the last quarter where the Lions managed to squeak a last minute touchdown to win the game. The crowd reaction at the end of the game was a genuine response.

Fairmont Waterfront // Haida Wild Partnership

A short documentary of the partnership between Fairmont Waterfront and Haida Wild for their sustainable seafood program. Former Chef Alessandro Vianello visits Haida Gwaii to experience its pristine nature.

The Next Course: With David Hawksworth

This ten part series follows David Hawksworth as he travels from Vancouver to Calgary, Montreal and Toronto for his annual apprenticeship program. We caught up with influential and celebrated chefs in every city to speak about what makes them tick.

Mojio Cloak | A Connected Car Alarm

This was created on a shoestring budget and was one of the most fun videos I’ve been on in a long time.

All the interior car footage was shot on greenscreen.

Kuba Oms - My Love (remix)

From pop singer Kuba Oms and filmmaker Stephano Barberis, an abstract look at a relationship in fleeting, dreamlike vignettes of good times and bad through the mind of a drug addict. The video was shot through moving prisms and red strobe lights.
