Over the last few weeks we’ve been volunteering at Shaw TV, one of Vancouver’s community channels. We had the pleasure in lending a hand with camera operating and floor directing for a couple of their in-studio productions. Unfortunately around the globe, community TV is a changing industry and today they announced the end of productions at Shaw TV Vancouver, thus our volunteering at Shaw has come to a sad and fast end.
One of the things we’ve really enjoyed about moving to Vancouver is the opportunity to be a part of actual film sets. Over the last six weeks we’ve found work on productions by being background performers aka “extras”. It’s way less glamorous than it sounds, but still rewarding knowing that big things are happening all around you. Our hope and what we continue to work towards is to be a bigger part of these productions and this incredible industry.
