Shelter Point Distillery – Campbell River, BC


Producing this project with Shelter Point Distillery was fantastic. Patrick & James approach the work they are doing with an energy and zest for life and learning. When you’re around them it feels like anything is possible. It didn’t take long to get us inspired and creative in how we were going to tell the story of Shelter Point Distillery. And we had a great time doing it!
We loved filming the sights and sounds of the wildlife that live and thrive on the farm; capturing harvest shots from a 40ft lift and getting covered in chaff as the combine roared by our cameras during the barley harvest in September; feeling the heat of the copper pot stills as they transformed foaming frothing barley brine into distilled alcohol in October; ducking for cover from the spray of an overfilled whisky cask during barrelling in mid November; and hearing the unique sounds of traditional Scottish cooperage tools in action as they opened an aged whisky cask to show us the copper & oak infused colors of liquid gold in December.
 Most of all, we loved watching Patrick and James work with excellence and a sense of adventure as both farmers and whisky distillers.
Shelter Point Distillery is located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. It is blessed with a near perfect mix of fertile soil, sunshine, abundant fresh water and mild weather. These ingredients are here to produce a true ‘Field to Flask’ single malt whisky.

Comox Tourism – Vancouver Island


I am proud to live in the beautiful Town of Comox….so when I was asked to produce a short promotional film that captured all that our town has to offer, I knew it would be a great experience. There’s incredible local cuisine, breathtaking views, and a golf course just blocks from the ocean. You should come for a visit.

Erin Wallis Photography – Vancouver Island


We love stories. There’s purpose in the good ones. Some have life lessons and some have a way of wrapping around us and motivating us to change or to move or to think again. These are the films I pursue. To tell stories of real people with a purpose and determination for why. People who take risks and grow through adversity. People you would like to meet in real life. People you can believe in. I believe that you can’t sell your business apart from selling yourself. People want to see who you are and feel that they are getting to know something about you that is important, honest, and real – and this experience will go a long way in helping them decide what they will do next. Visit you in person. Pick up the phone. Goto your website. Even, add to cart.
When I met Erin I knew she was full of purpose and that she knew why she was creating photos for people. Being able to bring her passion to film and show people what is so attractive about Erin Wallis is the whole reason I am a storyteller and film maker. To come alongside people and lift them to higher heights.

The Comox Valley Farmers Market provides the best of foods grown or made by the local farmers, bakers, and butchers from our valley. I wanted this film to be a fun and informative look at how a farmers market is made each week and what you might experience if you come to one…so play this film for the kids and see if they want to go!
The Comox Valley Farmers Market has begun a fundraising campaign to build a permanent farmers market structure for hosting the market each week year round. I am proud to partner with the Comox Valley Farmers Market and I hope this film will help make a significant impact in reaching their goals.

Coastal Black Estate Winery – Vancouver Island


I met Abel O’Brennan almost one year ago and was immediately drawn to his sense of honesty, passion, and determination as a winemaker on Vancouver Island, Canada. This is a family run business and there are four generations living and working on the estate located in Blackcreek, British Columbia. The family’s conversion from milk to wine a few years ago was a bold move and one that has proven to be worth the risk. Coastal Black Estate Winery have received numerous international awards for many of their outstanding fruit wines. coastalblack.ca

Purely Flower – Comox Valley, BC

Tamara Penna from Purely Flower is a wonderfully talented young and vibrant floral creative. Her love for life and what she does is clearly reflected in her eyes as she tells her story. She makes flowers for just about every occasion…even one’s you might invent. We think she’s pretty great.
