The day I first set foot on Mount Seymour, I knew it would have a lasting profound impact on me. Located on Vancouver's North Shore, the mountain looks down over the vibrant and pulsing city to the South, while the Coast Mountains stretch endlessly to the North. For 3 years, I returned on and off to seek inspiration, and to shoot as much timelapse as possible. Every time, I found a new and unique display of magic. I never tire of seeing the lights, the colours, the sunrise, the sunset, and just sitting back at peace above the world. This is the culmination of years of practice, countless pounds of equipment carried, many sleepless nights, and 100s of hours of editing. Enjoy! 

This is a compilation of drone videos from a work in progress documentary film shot on location at Selkirk Mountain Experience in Revelstoke, BC.

The Honda Celebration of Light is an annual fireworks festival held over 3 separate days at the end of July/early August in Vancouver, British Columbia. For 2017, teams were chosen to represent the countries of Japan, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Each team gave a fantastic performance, but Akariya Fireworks from Japan was ranked the winner of the competition.

To capture this event, I went to a different location for each show. On night one, I watched Japan's display from a beach in North Vancouver. Luckily, despite the distance to the fireworks barges, they could still be seen very clearly, and the accompanying soundtrack was able to be played from a radio. For the UK show, I watched from the Burrard Bridge, offering an unobstructed view towards English Bay and the fireworks themselves. What was most captivating about this location was the ability to watch the marine traffic as boats travelled out of false creek to join the circle around the fireworks, and then travelled back after the end of the show. To capture this process in timelapse, I arrived an hour and a half before the start of the show, and stayed for another hour and half afterwards. Finally, for the last show, Canada's, I watched from a small rock spit near the border of Stanley Park. Arriving only 10 minutes before the show, I was able to find a spot on a large flat rock that had just been uncovered by the receding tides. This meant I was able to capture the crowds at English Bay, as well as the entire fireworks show above me. I also used real time video to capture parts of Canada's performance, including the finale, shown at the end of this film.

When we were kids, our imagination took us places we'd never otherwise be able to go: to the places with soft snow and big flakes. We dreamed of riding down steep mountainsides and through mysterious snow-capped forests. We always wondered what this world would look like if we could bring along our closest friends. With help from 40 UBC Freeride athletes, the paths of inspiration are revealed to lie both ahead and behind us in time. Which ever way we look there is always someone to follow. Filmed entirely in 7 days for the World Ski and Snowboard Festival’s Intersection competition, each film had to include 30 seconds of on-resort footage (at Whistler Blackcomb), 30 seconds of park footage, and be shot within 100 km of Whistler. To Follow is a product of this competition which has been re-edited for online release.
