Drones For Good – Transport Canada

Did you know that Double Barrel films all across Canada and into the US for our clients? It’s true! Thanks to the power of our network of collaborators, and a little dose of technology, we can arrange to film for your business or organization Canada-wide, and in select US cities.

Check out this recent project we produced for Transport Canada. Titled ‘Drones For Good’, these short documentaries were filmed on location with experts who are pushing the limits of aerial technology from Quebec City to Vancouver Island. Our director conducted the interviews via Zoom from Ontario, while our camera operators set the scene and provided all the necessary support at the other end of the lens. A match made in digital heaven!

Featured in this series are Maude Pelletier from MVT Geosolutions (Quebec), Wade Hawkins from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (Alberta), Professor David Bird (Vancouver Island), and Tim Stinson from Stinson Aerial (Vancouver Island).

We couldn’t be more proud of the end result! Thanks so much to Transport Canada for inviting us along!

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!

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!
