Wolseley Canada

Training videos are a hot topic these days. And no wonder! Educating new employees is something that every business needs to do at one point or another.

At Double Barrel, we get requests for these all the time. And our answer is, yes! We do those! And in too many styles to count.

Training videos keep costs down, create educational consistency, improve information retention AND employee engagement. As a savvy business owner, video should be your go-to solution when it comes to training new staff.

Check out the samples above of our latest training video series for Wolseley Canada.

From live action to animation and everything-in-between, we’re your #1 choice when it comes to producing videos that will ensure your employee training is more effective, cost-conscious, on-demand and consistent!

Parks Canada

This series of animated educational videos focusses on whale tour operator regulations and guidelines in the sensitive Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park; a National Marine Conservation Area and one of only three in the Canadian national park system.

With educational projects it’s often critical to get the smallest of details absolutely perfect, to not impede the learner’s ability to grasp the information being shared. In this case, extra close attention was paid to the distances, perspective, style and movement of the whales & the overall geography of the region, often having our illustrators pull from actual photos in the creation of these elements.

Produced, voiced and titled in both of Canada’s official languages – we are so proud of the results of this collaboration! Many thanks to Parks Canada for involving us in such a fantastic project. We had a whale of a time!

David Braley Primary Care Research Collaborative

Every day, thousands of primary care providers head to the front lines of healthcare in Canada.

They’re by our sides for moments big and small – motivated by a singular vision : to help everyone lead happier, healthier lives.

At McMaster, healthcare is in our DNA. 50 years ago, our medical school revolutionized healthcare education.

And for over a decade, the Department of Family Medicine has been reimagining primary care research – providing critical insights, and pushing toward a brighter world for us all.

Introducing – the David Braley Primary Care Research Collaborative. An incubator, focussed on advancing and strengthening primary care in Canada.

The Collaborative is for everyone – from experienced researchers to primary care clinicians looking to start. Bring your question to us, and work with expert faculty & highly trained staff to find the answers. With supports for capacity development, mentorship and networking in research – our aim is to light the pathways to discovery, whether your question is big or small.

In Canada, healthcare is more than an occupation. It’s a calling. Help solve tomorrow’s challenges today. Be a part of the David Braley Primary Care Research Collaborative. Working together, we’ll reimagine primary care – for better health and a brighter world.

Canada & Colombia: Teaming Up on Digital

This past June, Double Barrel was thrilled to be part of a Canadian trade delegation to Colombia. We explored the people, the geography and the incredible digital talent of this beautiful country – and along the way produced this mini-doc, our very first international co-production with Cali-based Mambo Estudio.

This piece highlights the incredible talent available in Colombia, and takes a look at exciting partnerships being created between our two countries in the digital industries: ICT, gaming, software and animation among them.

It also marks the beginning of our own exciting partnership with Juan & Mambo Estudio – a creative business relationship that we look forward to fostering for years to come!

Huge thank you’s to everyone involved – to  TFO Canada, ProColombia and Gateway to Trade for the opportunity to tell such a rich story, and to Juan and team for every bit of assistance along the way. It’s been an adventure and we’re looking forward to more!
