Shaw Spotlight Favourites

Repair Cafe

Planned obsolescence has slowly but surely crept into our consumer-driven society. Repair Cafes are a great way to combat that while simultaneously cleaning up our environment. Items you purchase with your hard earned cash don’t need to end up in the landfill too soon, while at the same time, you can learn how to be a fix-it guy… just like Dave Baar!

Water Guardians

Water is essential for all life to exist. We can go for weeks without food, but only three days without water. When private interests and corporate profit stand in the way of accessing this essential resource…it’s time to stand up. See how Bruce Gibbons and Maude Barlow stand up in the face of adversity.

Leanne & the Moose

Mobile Outreach for those who are vulnerable isn’t something new, but to Campbell River it is. Whether homeless or helpless, Leanne & the Moose (with support from many local government agencies) are successfully coordinating health services for those who need it the most. If only the world had more Leanne’s, what a wonderful world this would be.

Victory Gardens

​In this time of uncertainty, one thing to consider is food security. Growing your own food is something we certainly all can do to help relieve the strain on the system in the event of further service disruptions.

Too Cute to Handle

Kittens, you gotta’ love them…even if they decide to go on a reality TV show!

A Moment in Time

As chaotic as one moment may seem, the next may bring joy.

Bee Bombs

Bee Bombs are a great way to help save the bees and other essential pollinators from extinction. When Bee bombs explode, they disperse wildflowers seeds that, once planted, will produce a beautiful plot of flowers for pollinators to feed off. Pollinators are responsible for 1 in every 3 bites of food on our plate, so giving them a platform to thrive in is a fun and easy way to help save the planet. Way cooler than those other bombs we’ve been using all these years!

Raven’s Calling

For years, Valerie Lamirande looked to find the creative outlet that inspired her. And when she received an unexpected gift from a friend…Lamirande knew that she had found exactly what she was looking for!

Meet Donny

Throughout recent history, many power tools have been invented to modernize crafts like woodworking. Strict safety precautions must be adhered to while operating power tools in order to avoid serious injury and can be a daunting challenge for the best of us. Now imagine you were blind and still trying to do all of that…Well then, Meet Donny.

CR Bike Park

Campbell River Bike Park….fun stuff.

Surfing CR

When the wild winter storms hit Vancouver Island, some people will shelter in place…but not these guys. These hardcore local surfers will wax up their boards, zip up their wet-suits and duck-dive into the dangerous waters off the rocky coast of Campbell River.

As a Producer for Shaw Spotlight, I had the privilege to create features on some amazing people and ideas from the Campbell River and Comox Valley region. Above are some of my favourites  - below is the Youtube link to many other bits of media I got to create.
