Recently I spent a week in Canmore, Alberta shooting a short documentary sponsored by Merrell about a couple of loose canons doing epic shit atop mountains in the Canadian Rockies. The details of this project are still a mystery to all those not directly involved – But we did encounter early mornings, helicopters, avalanches, axe fights and wise words from legendary mountain climbers. We shot with the Sony FS5 & used GoPro’s and Sony X70’s to cature the extreme adventures! Being out west for the week, certainly made me miss living in that part of Canada.
2015 was one hell of a year. I was brought on as a CameraMan for season 3 of Esquire Network’s adventure TV series Boundless. Shooting with a skeleton crew of 5 ( Steven Bray, Merewyn Wagner, Josh Eady, Jordan Eady & myself) we followed 4 top ultra marathon athletes around the world as they ran, biked, swam, climbed, paddled, & ski’d in every condition you can imagine.
Shooting these races involved precise planning & coordination, and the ability to run, bike, paddle or hang on too the various means of local transport. We utilized ATV’s, UTV’s, helicopters, gators, speed boats, bicycles, snow mobiles, motorcycles, cars, trucks, kayaks, and of course a ton of running, to get inside access to the most extreme races this world has to offer.
Boundless Season 3 was an amazing experience, and I cannot wait to see the final product in April of 2016.
Merewyn and I are fundraising for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre’s Ride To Conquer Cancer. The event is a 200km bicycle ride from Toronto to Niagara with all proceeds going towards furthering personalized cancer medicine.
Please follow along with us as we train, raise funds and host events. MereAndJosh.ca
I can never resist an offer for the Freshest Burgers in town! Ammar ( aka The Burger Papi ) & I spent the day shooting away at his Streetsville Location. He plans to do a huge social media push with all the content we created. Great stuff!!! The best part… He promised me free Burgers for Life!
No I’m not getting my MBA anytime soon.. or ever for that matter…. because
I could never sit still in class.
Collaborating with Boomerang Art & Design I’m shooting and producing a series of recruitment videos for potential and interested students that want to pursue this avenue of education.
As we shot Season 3 of Boundless, we would grab Paul ‘Turbo’ Trebilcock and sneak off to amazing vantage points to shoot scenes for the greatest – highest production value ever, lip-sync music video. What better song to choose then Tears for Fears ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’
Watch the video below. It will make you feel good.
Mo Elabi from Antibody Communications contacted me to produce a few videos for his client Alexion and their One Source Program. We spent the day filming with a bilingual female actor which made me realize that I wish I would have stuck with French class after grade 10.
