I got to work with Arran Henn again, this time, shooting a video for her Westcoast Homes feature. I was asked to give her a tour of one of the VGH Millionaire Lottery prize homes. Time didn’t permit us to tour the entire home, but what was shot will give a good taste of the high tech home. I’m not sure when it will be available to view, but you might want to have a look at the site… www.homesanddesign.ca/videos Thanks Arran, it was a lot of fun!!
It was fun to work with Advertising genius, Sue Bell on a Money Mart television commercial yesterday. It should be a fun spot when put together. You’re led to believe that a guy is watching a sports program, when in fact it’s the Weather Channel. I’m the voice on the T.V. The spot is scheduled to run across the country, watch for it!
I had a great time yesterday, back on the radio! First, I joined Ian Power for a remote broadcast on radio station CKNW, at one of the VGH Millionaire Lottery prize homes. Then went to another Millionaire prize home to join The Moj, on radio TEAM 1040. It was a lot of fun. We met lots of very nice people, and posed for photos while people came and bought lottery tickets, to help out the Vancouver General Hospital Foundation.
Yesterday, I worked with Stuart McNish of Oh Boy Productions, laying down a v/o track for a project Stu is working on in conjunction with Dean Mailey and Fusion Communication Group. It’s an informational video outlining the services provided by Hollyburn Family Services for North Shore residents in need. The video will be shown at a major fundraising event coming up this month.
I had the pleasure of working with Paula Martin last night, judging the radio news category at the Jack Webster Foundation Awards. It was the 27th annual celebration of excellence in B.C. journalism, and quite possibly the largest media awards event in the country. Over 1000 people from radio, television and print attended. The Webster winner in our category was Bob Keating of the CBC for his series of reports on the Johnson’s Landing slide. Congratulations to Bob, and to all the Webster recipients. It was a great night, thanks to the hard work of Nora Newlands, the Executive Director of the Jack Webster Foundation, and her crew.
MC’d “One Enchanted Evening” fundraiser for the Surrey Hospice Society. A very generous crowd, raising lots of money for hospice. It was held at Eaglequest Coyote Creek Golf and Country Club in Surrey. Beth Kish, the Executive Director of the Surrey Hospice and her crew of volunteers made it a night to remember!
Just wrapped 2 days of shooting VGH Millionaire Lottery TV commercials with Director/Producer Deb Adams. The Grand Prize this year, your choice of 4 beautiful homes or 2.5 Million dollars cash! The 2 White Rock homes are incredible, one is on Marine Drive, right across the street from the Pacific Ocean, and the other is a modern state of the art home on Best St. The informational brochure and email will be hitting homes very soon. Watch for it, then help out the Vancouver General Hospital, and buy some tickets, go to millionaire lottery.com…you just might be a winner!!
I just finished a studio session recording radio commercials for the Vancouver General Hospital Foundation Millionaire Lottery. If you’re a sports fan, you’re going to love the sports prize package that’s up for grabs. This, in addition to 4 homes, cars and cash and over 3500 prizes in all. It’s big….really big this year! Stay tuned.
I shot a Fortis gas commercial at Deluxe restaurant in White Rock last week. Executive Chef, and owner of Deluxe, Jeremy Duke and I shot most of the commercial in the kitchen of the restaurant, then finished sitting down in the restaurant with a nice glass of Pino Noir, and a prawn creation he had cooked up on a natural gas stove….of course! It’s the first of 2 commercials I’ll be doing for Fortis, part of a series of 4 spots, spreading the word about natural gas.
I had a great time MC’ing the annual Red Serge fundraiser for the Semiahmoo Volunteer Police Society, on the 11th of September. It was a great night, that included a live auction with Hall of Fame Auctioneer, “Wild Bill Henke”…..The event took place at the Morgan Creek Golf Course, and raised thousands of dollars for the Society. Members of the RCMP were in attendance decked out in the world famous Red Serge Dress Uniform. Nothing says “Canada” like the Red Serge.
