The Competition....
National Geographic

Three Fishermen: a Brit, Brazilian & Canadian battle it out in the rivers & oceans of 3 continents - Europe & North & South America to see who can catch the biggest fish. Fun? Fish? Plenty of it! The fish in the picture was one of the 10 biggest Sturgeon fish ever caught in the Fraser River outside Vancouver - it weighs almost 1000lbs, 10.5 feet long & is over 150 years old. The old fish was just catching its breath before we had to let it go...

The Sehsucht & Markenfilm Road Trip

The amazingly wonderfully smart and hard working Ole Peters won the hearts and minds of The Richards Group and Chrysler with five epic spots for the 2013 RAM 1500 truck. Film star & super nice guy Sam Elliott got to see the beauties off the West Coast of Vancouver Island and everyone else visited pretty much every town, field, river, mountain and coffee shop in British Columbia & Alberta. 8000km on the Director's SUV! Unforgettable.

Vattenfall

2012 was off to a roaring start with two great jobs for Scandinavia in February and March. We started with snowmobiles on water (see below) for Nokian tires and went straight to 8 days of filming for Vattenfall (the Swedish power company) and their young Olympians sponsorship program. Producer Lina Stenberg and director Thomas Hilland from Partizan Stockholm chose Vancouver because they needed sailing AND skiing at the same time (as well as fencing, gymnastics, cycling, and hockey). We had fresh snow on the mountains 20 minutes from downtown and blue skies and fair winds just up the shore from the hotel. The spots required amateur athletes on the path to Olympic competition from all the sports and Vancouver delivered. It's all here. Click on the image above to see the summer spots. We'll put the winter ones up in the fall. And such nice people, our northern brethren.

Nokian

Producer Marko Antilla and director Jalmari Helander from Helsinki-based Mjolk came to escape the frozen lakes of Finland to show off the traction of Nokian tyres. MOP just happened to find "snowmobiler on water extraordinaire" Kalle Johansson who pulled off some tricks none of us thought possible. And the spectacular lake and snow-capped mountain location at Golden Ears park, 40 minutes from the city, gave us everything else we could ask for. Great cast, too, and the usual AAA crew. Much fun.
