Beaver bush planes

The iconic deHavilland Beaver bush plane is still flying all over the north, 62 years after it was first took to the air. Yet despite its iconic status, there are few good videos of this classic plane. Our film crew took the opportunity to take a Beaver into Nahanni National Park and shot some amazing air-to-air footage amongst some of the most beautiful backdrops in the country. Enjoy!

Vancouver timelapse

I love the endless possibilities of digital cameras, and timelapse photography is one great application. This timelapse video of Vancouver is an amazing example. Turn up your speakers and enjoy! it also happens to show off Vancouver at its best.

Sable Island

One of Canada’s most isolated islands is wind-swept Sable island, off the coast of Nova Scotia. It is famously difficult to visit the island, but I was surprised to read that there are in fact a few residents. And one of them, Zoe Lucas, even maintains a website with everything you ever wanted to know about Sable Island.

Adding this one to my list of must-goes in Canada.

New Labrador ad

Tourism Newfoundland and Labrador launched another ad in its already very successful ad campaign. This latest ad features Torngat Mountains National Park in northern Nunatsiavut. Great footage, and bound to turn some heads – in fact the ad on YouTube already received over 5,800 views in its first two weeks.

Aerial video system

Check out the Draganflyer X8 – a new way to make aerial photography affordable! It is a small remote-controlled helicopter with a payload of about 1kg, perfect for a full HD video or still camera. It would be an amazing tool for shooting nature or wildlife from the air. The price is steep, but it is still a lot cheaper than renting a helicopter. And the company is Canadian (from Saskatoon) to boot.
