We’ve produced video – and television productions – filmed on-location across Canada and around the world.
While we specialize in historical themes and productions like our History Moments series and documentaries, we’ve also created many video features to enhance anniversary celebrations, events, presentations, online learning courses, and websites with dynamic and interactive content.
In their early stages, video production projects are a puzzle of words and images.
We’re at home in this world – successfully blending thorough research, strong writing, and powerful images that together create memorable productions serving as visual centrepieces for your events, product presentations, and online content.
Part of the work may include extensive interviews with some of the material used in the productions. But much of it won’t be used. We suggest these interview materials be edited as secondary products for use as additional learning and archival resources posted online.
Over the years we’ve created productions for national organizations to celebrate the achievements of their members at gala award presentations; breaking news features as part of fictional mission scenarios in online training courses for senior staff in the Canadian military; and documented the annual exercises of Canadian Emergency Preparedness and U.S. Homeland security officials testing new technologies and systems for combating natural disasters and national security threats.
Whatever your story – and the occasion to tell it – let us help you make it memorable.
Our signature creation is The History Moments series – highly-produced, two-minute historical vignettes. Launched in 2009, we’ve produced over 70 of these short features on early settlement, first industries, prominent people and significant events, which have shaped the history of Eastern Ontario communities and Canada.
The features are broadcast on regional private and cable television stations, WPBS TV in Watertown, New York, and before movies at local theatres. They are distributed into local schools and libraries as learning resources. And all our series are accompanied by a gala launch in participating area communities.
We’ve adapted the series to tell other stories of the history of industries, companies, and organizations.
The Woolworth retail empire of five and dime shops across the United States, Canada and England, lasted for nearly 130 years.
But it started as a modest business owned by a former drug store clerk, Frank Woolworth, and his industrious wife, Jennie Creighton of Prince Edward County, Ontario.
In the 1780s, Mohawk leader Molly Brant fled her home in New York state amidst the turbulence of the American Revolution.
She settled in Kingston, Ontario and became instrumental in maintaining the alliance between her people and the British government.
The Trenton Movie Industry
The city of Trenton, Ontario (now Quinte West) was once known as “Canada’s Hollywood North” as the capital of the movie industry in the country.
