I’ve been creating video content with Sticks & Stones Communication for just over a year.
We’ve come a long way.
A rocky mountain utopia – this film explores the great natural beauty and curious history of a serene hamlet called Nordegg. It’s philosophical origin as a Garden City – a workers paradise. To it’s contemporary role as a backcountry outpost for a new era of adventurers and dreamers. We follow outdoors writer Neil Waugh and son Colin Waugh as they fish the scenic Ram River for Cutthroat Trout, taking time to reflect on the regions unique history and a new interpretation of Martin Nordegg’s perfect place.
I have applied for funding from Telus and their Storyhive program. Currently a public vote is underway to determine which projects receive the grant. You can check out my pitch video and vote for my project here STORYHIVE

However, once it is ready I will be sure to share all of its gross/greatness.

While in the office, a discussion broke out about the effectiveness of YouTube pre-roll advertisements. Our best solution was to do some primary research. Create a 30 second bit, buy a small amount of Ad space (which is surprisingly inexpensive) and track the results.
Thus GELS (Gender Equality Little Spoon) movement was conceptualized. Pulling together our collective resources we created a 30 second video, voice over + soundtrack, logo, website, and social media platforms. The research is ongoing, but here is the video.

A showdown, a throwdown, between Culina, The Common, and Mosh Burger (as seen in order above). $9 landed you a sample slider of each burger – an overwhelming amount of meat for anyone at this years Taste of Edmonton Festival. Both judges and festival goers cast their votes for the best burger in the city. This year Culina’s lamb burger took the Judges Choice Award and Mosh Burger took the Peoples Choice Award.
Today’s photo was taken on the Golden Jubilee Bridge overlooking Big Ben. Scottish defiance has been historically strong, but now more than ever since the Scottish National Party took power in 2007 and a landslide majority in 2011.
