AMA the Alberta Motor Association was doing their yearly drive for presents at Christmas where Santa comes to pick up the packages donated and brings them to all the kids in need of a present. we were there to capture the event and deliver the footage to AMA for their library and for media. Here is a quick clip of the event that took place.
An example of an event film.
Another great start to the year for Norquay, Sunshine and Lake Louise. We film a little opener each year for a local event Ski Banff Lake Louise Sunshine put on at Wild Bill’s in Banff. This allows the resorts to quickly mention whats new for the upcoming season. A ski snowboard film follows the presentation . Everyone gets in with non perisable food items to give to the Food Bank.
Here is the 2012 / 2013 season segment
A great event held at the Hotel Arts in May 2012 for the Missing Children’s Society by the Calgary Chapter of ISES. We were there to capture the event and give our services to this worthy cause. Here is the event film.
Timelapse of the day added to the overall production.
Today I filmed the April clouds midday in Canmore. I decided that the clouds and wind were about right for a time-lapse of clouds moving over the mountains and to show the dramatic effect a little music adds to those images. There are a variety of ways to do this, the easiest with the equipment I have is using my Sony EX camera that does Interval Recording . I set it to 1 sec / 3 frames and let it roll till I have about a minute of footage. The next step is bringing it into my editing system and speeding it up. I usually do between 800 – 1200 % to give it that fast movement ,depending on the length ( usually 5 seconds is enough).
Here is one I did today, this took 2 hrs of my time to film and another 1.5 hrs to edit to what you see here. Luckily I had music that is dramatic to go with it, but that alone is another process for another time.
The Rimrock Resort Hotel has a special place in my heart. I had the pleasure of being part of the opening team back in 1993 when I was in the Hospitality industry. The hotel is a Four Diamond Resort Hotel located in Banff National Park and right by the famous Upper Hot Springs.
The Hotel has always been beautifully kept , with regular renovation to meet the very high standards it holds. The Eden Restaurant is one of only five restaurants in Canada to receive the Five diamond award . It is worth a reservation while in Banff.
I was recently asked to create a video to be placed online and shown at the Food & Wine show in May. Next time in Banff stay at the Rimrock or stop by and enjoy the restaurants and lounges. Did I mention the views? Watch the video to see what I mean.
