Shooting a doc in the pandemic

We have been lucky in Newfoundland and I have my first vaccine now, yay! Shooting has been pretty straight forward for the most part with a few set backs due to the recent lockdown. For now it’s mostly social distancing, masks and hand sanitizer, just like everyone else!

Right now I’m shooting my new doc, Set in Motion which is a documentary about the mobile workforce. Stay tuned for more details!

I have been in pre-production!

It’s been a while since I last posted (I feel I say that every time haha) but I have been busy doing some pre-production for my newest doc, Set in Motion, which will be airing on CBC this fall. Pre-production doesn’t give me much exciting things to post except for this one time I went to Bell Island to put up flyers so here you go:

Also I’m out of focus in the photo because my fiance took it, some day I will have him trained haha

Come watch Rock Solid Builds!

This is the first time HGTV has come to Newfoundland and they picked a great place to start, Brigus!!

This home reno show is the first of its kind and its airing on Feb. 18th, 2021 on HGTV. I helped out as a camera operator/assistant and we followed around Randy and his team and they renovated old houses in Brigus. Put it in your PVR now because you wont want to miss out!

I have a NEW documentary in the works!!

This is pretty exciting news! I am officially working on my first TV hour documentary for CBC which will be shot entirely in Newfoundland. This documentary will be about the mobile workforce, people who have employment-related travel and it will be supported by CBC and On the Move Partnership.

I am currently in the pre-production process of working out contracts and looking for main subjects to be in the film so if you know any of the following 3 people that might be interested in being in it feel free to reach out to me (info@tinbirdproductions.com) and say hi!

  • Single mother using public transit to get to and from her job
  • A fly-in/fly-out worker with a family in Newfoundland
  • A single/divorced male truck driver

The shoot itself will be very low key and it may just be me with my camera and a few lights fyi!

Miawpukek’s Restorative Justice

Last year I helped out with this short piece on restorative justice within Miawpukek Mi’kamawey Mawi’omi in Conne River. I am very grateful to have been a part of this and learn about the different restorative practices within this community. Take a look!

A new real estate video!

Some good news: I’m back to (socially-distant) shooting!!

This is my first work project since covid began and it’s a listing for the Georgetown Cafe building which is now up for sale. This is a historic area of St. John’s and it would be a great spot for someone looking to start a local business. Check it out!
