About the author


Who is the Pro Video Advisor and the author of 10 Must Have Shots?

I’ve been working in the film and television industry as an actor, director, producer and editor for over 20 years.  Born in Winnipeg MB Canada, my family moved out to the West Coast when I was young and I grew up watching The BeachCombers.  Yes, I do mean the show, but I also mean that I watched The Beachcombers being filmed.  Growing up in Gibsons BC was the shooting location for the hit CBC series for almost 20 years.  My best friend lived right beside Pat John, the actor who played Jesse Jim on the series.  The fact is you couldn’t go anywhere without seeing something of the show being filmed.  I remember watching an episode and a car went around a corner and the next section of road was completely different.  In my own head I was saying “but that road doesn’t lead there…that’s not around that corner” – Needless to say it was my first taste of movie making magic!
