Last year we made a video for the University of Waterloo Federation of Students to promote the executive election. Our ‘actor’ is the Feds’ Clubs and Service Director, Dave McDougal. Dave received a crash course in acting last year and performed like a pro. Our video services were very well received and the campaign was a success.
Well, it’s that time of year again and we just wrapped up the new promo. This year we tried to make the shots a little more elaborate. Take a look at both videos and let us know what you think (please watch in full-screen).
Take a look at some behind the scenes footage. We’ll show you how Dave made his dry exit from the uWaterloo swimming pool.

We’ve upgraded our editing suite!
Our latest edition is a 27″ iMac running with an Intel 3.4GHz Quad-Core i7 processor, a 256GB internal solid state drive, a second internal 2TB serial ATA drive, 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 video memory, 16 GB of random access memory, and a second cinema display unit.
Best of all, we’ve set up a Pegasus 12TB R6 RAID System with a Thunderbolt connection.
So far everything runs like a dream!
This past August, Andrew and I had the opportunity to work with Seguin Valley Golf Club and Central Helicopters, both based out of Parry Sound Ontario.
We produced 2 sets of aerial flyovers (one low, one high) for the entire 18 hole golf course (check out Seguin Valley’s YouTube Channel to see them). The idea was to give people viewing Seguin Valley’s website a chance to preview each hole on the course.
We also made a brief promo video, which can be seen in Our Work section of reap-media.com.
Here’s a quick little behind-the-scenes segment from our day at Seguin Valley Golf:
Last year, Tallen and I were introduced to the talented boys of Trap Tiger.
Together, we took an ultra-low budget (guitarist Kevin Suess paid 1$ for a garbage basket which he then transformed into a head made of leaves) and made a music video for their song “Go Home & Dream”.
The video won the People’s Choice Award for Best Music Video at last year’s Local Focus 4 Film Festival in Kitchener, Ontario.
Many thanks are owed to Matt Paterson, for being the Man behind the leaves (a role that often required running full-speed down neighbourhood streets without being able to see) as well as to the rest of Trap Tiger – Ryan Dugal, Andre Furlong, and Ceilidh Shipley.
But a special thanks is owed to Kevin Suess for approaching us with a unique and insightful idea, and then letting us share in its realization.
As the band get’s ready to record their latest album since “Twisted Shapes” talks are already underway as to what sort of collaboration we can bang out next!

Update: It’s also worth mentioning (and giving proper thanks to) Buckley from youtube account: dolt009 for making his Australian homage to Go Home & Dream!
