Amazing Race Canada hired me as a camera operator for their Dawson City episode. It was pretty cool to see how such a massive operation comes together and to see my work on the most popular TV show in Canada! I started the day with a 5:00am call time in order to go up to The Dome (the mountain that looms over the city) and capture a timelapse of the sunrise. I then went on to Diamond Tooth Girties where I was based for the rest of the day. I didn't wrap until ~8:00pm. It was a long day, but seeing my footage from Girties and the timelapse in the show's opening credits (at a ratio of 2 hours of shooting : 2 seconds of timelapse) was............AMAZING!
Westside Studio came all the way from Toronto to shoot a commercial for ECO Canada. I was brought on board as the 2nd AC. It was a beautiful day of shooting out on the Wheaton River...I just wish I had time to throw a few flies in the water!
I was hired by CPAC to do a quick news segment on the new Kwanlin Dun First Nation baseball field that is being partially funded by the Toronto Blue Jays, and how the field is an example of Truth and Reconciliation.
I recently was brought on as the editor for an educational documentary about Indigenous students ' experienced in academia. It touches upon the factors that lead to higher dropout rates than non-Indigenous students and how institutions can support indigenous students throughout their academic careers. I was also brought on board to help light and shoot the main studio interview with Angela.
Our music video "Northern Lights" has been nominated for a CBC Indigenous Music Award! The competition is steep but it's an honour to be nominated amongst such legendary artists as Buffy Saint Marie. Many thanks again to Cody Coyote & Vision Quest for trusting me with their art and bringing me on board for this awesome project!
