We’re jumping the gun and ringing in the new before the year-end countdown. We’ve had an amazing 2010 here and are all still wrapping our heads around the fact that it isn’t June.
I started the year back East in February and battled the blizzards that dumped on Washington, DC.
In April, we managed to catch the last Air Canada flight of Paris before Eyjafjallajokull, the Icelandic volcano closed European airspace.
It was Brazil in August, escaping the heat in Vancouver for “winter” in Salvador.
We shot our first show ever in 3D, a fabulous addition to our Blowdown series.
In November, we began shooting our brand new series at Dover Castle with our host and co-production partner, Dan Snow. No small triumph for a project more than three years in the making.
So, besides the 60,000 Aeroplan miles I’ve banked this year, what does it all mean?
It means that here at Parallax Film Productions we’re always on a journey.
We’re looking for a new adventure … and we’ve found it in this vast e-universe.
The launch of the new website is pushing us in new directions, opening doors to the possibility that our creativity can be interactive and we can reach out to our audiences in ways that doesn’t always include a broadcaster.
We are stepping out from behind the curtain and redefining the nature of our storytelling by sharing what excites us every day. Whether it’s a new 3D TV or a story from the back pages, it’s all the stuff we strive for: being excited and engaged.
We hope that you’ll join us.
