Creating Content at Sea: 150 days from Coast to Coast to Coast

DURATION: 1 hour

PRESENTERS: Garry Tutte, Peter Wall and Ryan Rizzo

How can you continually create exceptional multimedia content on a five-month sailing expedition from coast to coast to coast? This is the question the Canada C3 Media Team had to answer. From June 1 to Oct. 28, the Canada C3 ship sailed from Toronto, Ont. to Victoria, B.C. to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Every step of the journey was documented in video, photos, live video, drone footage and virtual reality. Over the course of 150 days, the Canada C3 Media Team produced over 100 videos and 6,000 photos for their social media channels and website, garnering over 5 million unique views. This presentation is a behind-the-scenes peek into the workings of the Canada C3 Media Team - from the gear they used, to the tiny onboard editing space they worked out of, to the people behind the content. And of course, some examples of their best work. Find out how they worked closely with partners such as Sony, Facebook, SSi Micro and the Globe and Mail to achieve results.

Few can say they have produced stunning drone footage of the remote Torngat Mountains National Park or streamed a Facebook Live 50 metres away from a polar bear - but Garry Tutte, Peter Wall and Ryan Rizzo have. These are just two accomplishments from five months of content production on board the Canada C3 expedition. This year, the Canada C3 ship sailed 23,000 km from Toronto to Victoria, through the Northwest Passage to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation. The Media Team onboard the expedition, led by Peter and Garry, produced over 100 original videos and published more than 6,000 photos throughout the voyage, using a wide variety of Sony, DJI, Shape, CamGear and Vistek gear. The Canada C3 team, thanks to a partnership with Poesis Media, worked closely with Transport Canada to get the various SFOC's required for this epic journey. Peter has worked and lived on four continents, and his varied career includes work as a journalist, filmmaker and entrepreneur. Garry is a filmmaker and content creator with 20 years experience, based in Toronto and Lima, Peru, and the owner of Morro Creative. Ryan is a CFC Media Lab alumni (2011) and a certified Transport Canada UAV pilot, whose passion is to push the envelope of discovery between the inherent creative potential of digital media technology and its relationship to storytelling and data collection.

PRESENTING Sony VENICE - The ultimate tool for filmmaking professionals

A Taste of VENICE-An exclusive first look in Canada

Sony went back to the drawing board for this new Full Frame motion picture camera. VENICE is the next generation camera system, a ground-up development initiative encompassing a completely new image sensor, with careful consideration of key aspects such as form factor, ergonomics, build quality, ease of use, a refined picture and painterly look—with a simple, established workflow.

VENICE is a result of working in close collaboration with film industry professionals. Sony also considered the longer term strategy by designing a user interchangeable sensor architecture that is as quick and simple to swap as removing four screws, and can accommodate different shooting scenarios as the need arises.

This seminar will delve deep into the new architecture of VENICE, and the first demo footage shot with the camera will be shown

What people say About us

  • I've done far too many dealer trade shows over the past 20+ years, but I've done enough of them to know what a tremendous effort it requires to do one properly. You and your team have done it properly. It was organized with surgical precision, and we had plenty of help when we needed it. Thank you for your efforts and your support. I am looking forward to the mutual benefit ProFusion will bring us both.

  • I can honestly say I think it was probably the best run show that I have ever been involved with. We also had some fantastic interest in our product and sold out the show stock several times which was phenomenal for us.

    Rod Aaron Director, Rotolight, Pinewood Studios

  • I have received about 20 letters from students who took one of my programs and all of them were extremely positive. The entire experience was exceptional and you can definitely count me in again for next year.
