Sometimes production days can be very long, especially when they include capturing the sunrise, but we’re willing to do what it takes to help tell a great and compelling story. That’s exactly what Brad and Drew did in Muskoka this week for a client and seeing the below sunrise made it definitely worthwhile! #nofilter

Drew and Craig spent the week working with Hudson’s Bay to get some behind the scenes footage so we could create quick social media promos for their new fall 2016 line up. The clothes are awesome, but so is the filming and editing these guys pulled off. Sorry but you’ll have to wait for the fall to see it released. Way to go guys and thanks @hbc for the opportunity.

Brad and Dave just got back from attending and speaking @MARCOM, Canada’s premiere educational forum for public and not-for-profit sector marketers and communicators. They were invited to speak about storytelling and what it takes to actually engage your audience through the power of video. Based on the feedback it sounds like they killed it and have marketers excited about putting it into practice.

Way to go Dave!

Meeting Genelson – CH Global

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

After the earthquake in 2010, we wanted to help Haiti in a significant way. Through CH Global, we were given the chance to sponsor an 11 year old boy who had been affected by this tragedy. Fast forward one year later, we had the opportunity to work in Haiti and were beside ourselves to hear that we also were going to meet our sponsor child, Genelson!

Meeting Genelson is one of the most memorable moments of our lives! Despite the language barrier, we learned so much about him and his family.

Genelson’s birth father died when he was very young. His mother then remarried and had two other boys. Again, Genelson suffered the loss of another father. This now left Genelson’s mother with three young boys to raise on her own.

Like many others, Genelson and his family lost their home and all their possessions when the earthquake struck. They now live in a tent city in one of the most dangerous cities in Haiti; roaming with gang violence, rape and other horrific things. We were humbled the moment we stepped into their home. All their necessities were crammed into this tiny, 12’ x 6’ space. Despite their living conditions and struggles, they remain grateful for what they do have.

In the few hours spent with Genelson, he shared with us his love for soccer, school and his dream to become a doctor. Of everything that we learned about Genelson, it was most remarkable to witness his genuine heart for others. He hung tightly to us, protecting us as we walked the streets. He offered any food or drinks that we gave him directly to his mother first before having any himself. For a boy his age, we were struck to see how selfless he was. A true heart of gold. Not mention his amazing smile! One glimpse of his joyful grin would make any one feel joy themselves.

In all, we were so encouraged to see how sponsorship has helped not only Genelson, but his family as well. We were able to witness how in helping one person, you can transform a family, community, city and even a nation. Hope spreads.

If you are interested in sponsoring a child, there are many great organizations out there.  We have chosen to partner with CH Global and have seen the incredible impact it’s making in many lives all around the world.
