Video Production Toronto – The Captain’s Blog

Adventures in Video Production

Canadian Travelog!

Hello everyone, John here @ Groovy Concepts – the video production house servicing Toronto and the greater Toronto area.

Today I thought I would discuss one of the added bonuses, for the Groovy team, of being involved in video production in Toronto and elsewhere. Beyond the pleasures of meeting and filming interesting people week after week in the GTA, we also get to experience something amazing. And that is that we get to see some parts of the country that we would not normally ever get to visit. We have had the pleasure of spending time in some of the most interesting and beautiful towns in this great country of ours because of our line of work.

Here are some of the locations, from east to west that we have had the good fortune of shooting a video production: Paradise, and St. John’s Newfoundland. In Nova Scotia – the beautiful city of Halifax. We have filmed in Fredericton and Moncton New Brunswick. In Quebec – Quebec City, Montreal and Saint Hyacinthe. Here in Ontario we’ve worked in Ottawa, Morrisburg, Toronto, Oakville, Niagara Falls, New Dundee, Cambridge, Thunder Bay and Sault Ste. Marie. Heading further west, in Saskatchewan – Regina, and in Alberta – Calgary and Edmonton. Later this year we look forward to shooting in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia.

One thing we always try to do, as well, whenever we find ourselves galloping across this great country of ours is to find a bit of time away from lights, cameras and video production to “stop and smell the roses”. And that means trying to add some time to our schedule on our way from or on our way back to the airport so that we can take in some of the flavour of the region – even if it means seeing the highlights through the windows of a taxi.

That’s pretty much it for today’s travelog. Hope you enjoyed it. Looking forward to sharing some more thoughts and adventures in video production with you down the line.

So long for now!
