Canmore: 72 Hours in a State of Emergency


On June 20th 2013, two Toronto filmmakers traveled to Banff, AB to shoot a simple ribbon-cutting ceremony. What they ended up documenting was one of the worst natural disasters to hit that region in over a century.


I’m proud to present the trailer for our upcoming documentary.
Theatrical screenings begin this November.

Stranded in Canmore: Day Three… Escape!
June 22, 2013


Journalist Nicholas Sawarna and I are now into our third day of being caught up in the disastrous flood that has crippled the Province of Alberta.

The town was running low on food and drinking water and the water level continued to rise near our shelter. We decided to attempt an escape through the roadblocks in an attempt to reach safer ground.

Here’s what happened:

Stranded in Canmore: Day Two
June 21, 2013


Journalist Nicholas Sawarna and I were traveling to Banff to shoot a simple ribbon-cutting ceremony for a documentary, only to get stranded in Canmore, a few minutes away from our intended destination.

It’s been just over 24 hours and the situation has only gotten worse. So, like any good Producer knows, when the weather still prevents you from making your documentary, you continue to make a documentary about the weather.

Here’s our latest coverage of this state of emergency.

Stranded in Canmore: Day One
June 20, 2013


Journalist Nicholas Sawarna and I were traveling to Banff, Alberta to shoot a portion of a documentary on the internment of Ukrainian Canadians during WW1 when we were stopped by a road block just a few minutes away from our destination.

We decided to check in to a roadside motel for the night. We were sure that everything would be cleared up by morning. Oh how wrong were we.

So, like any good Producer knows, when the weather prevents you from making your documentary, you make a documentary about the weather.

Watch “Day Two” here.
Watch “Day Three” here.
