On a hot, sweaty, bug-infested day in July, history was made in Southern Alberta.
Well, okay, maybe not history. But a little music video was made.
We decided we needed a challenge. Something to take us out of our usual day gig of shooting corporate videos, promotional videos, and training videos. Not that we don't love doing these, but sometimes you just need to step out of the box and do something that is just, well, fun as heck! This is actually the third video we have shot for Punch Drunk Cabaret and they are always a blast.
So, bright and early on July 25, 2016, the boys from PDC, a fine actress/model named Nina, a fantastic drone operator (and all around nice guy) named Larrie, and a crew of two from POV all hopped in a van and headed to Hanna, Alberta. Well, actually Delia, Alberta to be exact. If you've never been, the landscape down there is breathtaking and was the perfect backdrop for the story we were shooting.
All in all, it was a long (very long - 20 hours to be exact), hot, sweaty, exhausting day. One that called for an 11 pm celebratory feast at the Drumheller McDonald's. The night time drive home brought close encounters with deer and foxes, and a lot of winding through many of Alberta's secondary highways. But we made it back to Edmonton around 2 am (we left Edmonton at about 6 am the previous morning).
I want to take this time to thank everyone involved for their dedication and hard work. We are in the heavy throes of editing now and so far, it looks great!
Stay tuned for the final product some time in September.
Until next time,
