FROM RICK MERCER:
In over 20 years as a promo producer, I've made hundreds of promos and videos for CBC Television, Radio and Online. Including many high profile show and CBC brand campaigns. My first love is comedy, but I've also worked on the whole range of what CBC has to offer - sports, drama, news, documentary and kids programming.
I worked as a segment producer for The Rick Mercer Report, and shot, edited and produced documentaries for CBC News The National as well as the seminal current affairs program Undercurrents.
More recently, my content creation interests have been focused on mobile/online.
I've been behind the camera for artists, fashion designers, event planners, architects and jewellery designers. My work has been used in catalogues and portfolios, on websites, posters and billboards. I'm a one man band... I own pro level gear and have extensive experience shooting photos and video in many different environments. I also have a home editing studio for post work.. I can take a project from initial concept to final mix.
I made this video for the great people at Canadians 4LTC. It's to play at a big conference demanding National Standards for Long Term Care in Canada.
