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.

Alecia & Rob Pre-Wedding Film – Comox Valley, BC


Alecia and Rob are another amazing couple. We met about 9 months ago to talk about their wedding and discovered they were planning to get married on a particularly awesome date : January 12th (hey! that’s our anniversary date!) So cool….We could tell they were very much in love and while we were getting to know them they had this really cute moment where Alecia began regaling us with Rob’s talents as a golfer, soccer player, and Call Of Duty expert…, and then Alecia says “me…not so much.” Lots of laughter followed.
We loved that they were such an easy going couple and yet – ready for adventure at the same time. We were even more excited when they decided to book us for the whole experience and get a pre-wedding film made along with their wedding film.
So this is it…the pre-wedding film. As always, the purpose of our pre-wedding films are to tell a story about our couples. It was great fun shooting little moments of these two doing what they love to do. Playing soccer, cozy walks, and loving their faithful companion Odie, their beloved dog. Rob recently became the owner of a golf Pro Shop and naturally he and Alecia spend many hours working the business and also playing golf together. These two enjoy lots of outdoor activities, which we love!
We filmed their prewedding film on a crisp cool sunny Fall day in October. They were quite nervous, but Mel and I have a way of having fun, keeping things casual, and sharing our approach to shooting. Very quickly Alecia and Rob forgot about the cameras and started having fun, playing soccer, and cuddling to stay warm (super cute). When it came to the interview parts I had an idea to let Alecia interview Rob and Rob interview Alecia. The interview clips you see were shot by our couples holding the camera which created a unique experience for both of them as they were able to look past the camera at each other while sharing honest answers about their hopes and dreams. The day flew by, and in the end we got some fantastic moments from a very wonderful loveable couple. We feel part of your lives now guys! We can’t wait to capture your wedding day story in January.

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.

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
