Open Eyes and Social Enterprise

Recently, I met David and Hannah Cree.  A Calgary power couple if I have ever met one. They are on a journey to make waves in the city of Calgary through their forward thinking entrepreneurial spirit. CMNGD (Common Good), is a social enterprise with interest in building a sustainable, scaleable, business that employs marginalized people, giving them a living wage and a hope for a future.

Together we created a video that explains the mission.  Watch the video!

David and Hannah recently WON at the ATB BoostR stage event, when they pitched CMNGD to a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style  panel of judges.  There was stiff competition with other worthy entrepreneurs but CMNGD was the clear favourite, generating the most intrigue in the crowd, and the hearts of the judges.

There is only 7 days left for them to reach their fundraising goals.  Your contribution will have a massive ripple effect.  Make a difference, invest in change.

“There’s no such thing as a small act of kindness.  Every act creates a ripple with no logical end” -Scott Adams

New Kickstarter Campaign eXXpedition 2015

Laundromat Studios latest film project falls in line with our shared love for the ocean. Plastics and toxins threaten the health of our ocean and our bodies. Agathe Bernard has launched her Kickstarter campaign which is explained in the video below. This adventure requires courage and a lot of support from the global community. Help Agathe Bernard cross the ocean and study the effects of plastics and toxins in our water. The only way to find a solution is to understand the problem. We all live downstream.

The New Surfing Fitness Imperative

 

Photography: Steven Dutcheshen / www.dutchfoto.net  _MG_7219   I got an opportunity to film and meet the new owner of what I am figuring is Surfing’s new Fitness Imperative. If your serious about training and surfing is in your arsenal of adrenaline sports then this is the place for you.

New Studio Revloution Fitness

Owned and operated by Mallory Faul Chapman a surfer herself inspired to blend training for something she loves with the discipline of yoga and cross fit. This is really the one stop for pow an surf hunters.

_MG_7123Its no joke, if you think doing any of the 3  discipline is challenging.. well try doing it on a unstable surfboard…

Check out their website for classes at: Studio Revolution

Before every Heliskiing trip you go thru a pretty involved Safety briefing and it part of the process for getting into the backcountry at these exotic film locations. Steve quietly snapping some pics while he participates in the “meeting” while we dig snow pits –

We had 4 days of amazing filming at Snowwater Heliskiing with Peak Adventures TV Show and for our project Powder Guides. This place is unreal in terms of subject matter and visuals. For sure the Heliskiing (as always) is stunning, but the nightlife, the food the little village you stay in just had so many thing to create a rich final product.

SnowwaterHeli_KyleHamilton-HeliskiingCanada-6Here is Peak’s 3 Videos from that film trip to give you a taste of some of the skiing content, the other filmed content will come out in Fall with the release of the Powder Guides Episode/ Snowwater.

The Staff at Snowwater Heliskiing were exceptional. Having a guide that works with you in terms of terrain and ideas makes all the difference in the final product.
