Another unique and interesting shoot with our friends at Bell Media Toronto. Amazing Race Canada Auditions was in town and we provided location sound. CTVNewsOttawa was there too. If you look closely enough you may see Jon Lebrun’s boom mic as he and cameraman Stephen Gelder get in close on the contestant action.
Last years NHL Finals between the San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins inspired Don to shoot HNIC segments in the mouth of the shark! And our buddy Jamie Baker, the colour commentator of the Sharks tv broadcasts sent us a link to one of the best mic’d up videos out there (The Best of Mic’d up San Jose Sharks ).
As you may know, Jamie was the #13 SJS hero for scoring the series-winning goal for the San Jose Sharks in the seventh game of the 1994 Western Conference Quarterfinals against the heavily favored Detroit Red Wings. He put us on to the great San Jose Sharks video production group headed by Dustin Lamendola. Check out their video on YouTube And then get out there and buy this years Rockem Sockem 28 !
Once again we are proud to be associated with Don Cherry and Tim Cherry, and to be the producers of Rock’em Sock’em for TPC Productions.
In October, we enjoyed the good fortune of being called upon by Polytechnics Canada CEO Nobina Robinson and her tremendous staff, to produce and package promotional content that would be presented at a major event to be held at the prestigious Rideau Club.
The special guest and keynote speaker was The Hon. Bardish Chagger, Minister of Small Business and Tourism and Government House Leader.
The Polytechnics Canada guests for the November 15th event included the Board of Directors, Presidents of Canada’s largest polytechnics and colleges, along with a select group of their employer partners, students and recent graduates. It was an excellent important event with outstanding presenters. And a pretty good video too… Thanks to the tremendous work performed by the participating member schools from across the country.
The production task was to compile nationally produced videos featuring significant student/private partnership projects from eleven member schools. The deliverables were a short promotional video that would be distributed on multiple-platforms, and a hour long show that presented the individual projects in detail showing off the high quality work being done by Canada’s leading polytechnic schools.
This years “Don Cherry Rock’em Sock’em 27” features the Mattamy Athletic Center…the refurbished version of the old Maple Leaf Gardens
Throughout RS27 Don offers up some of his best memories and anecdotes from his experiences at the historic building located at the northwest corner of Carlton Street and Church Street in Toronto.
Blomeley Communication is proud to produce Rockem Sockem for TPC Productions. It’s still Canada’s #1 Sports DVD!
Link to: Maple Leaf Gardens History
Considered one of the “cathedrals” of hockey, Maple Leaf Gardens was home to the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League from 1931 to 1999. The Leafs won the Stanley Cup 11 times from 1932 to 1967 while playing at the Gardens. The Leafs moved to the Air Canada Center in 1999. Their first home game at the ACC took place on February 20, 1999, versus the Montreal Canadiens.

The Mattamy Athletic Centre features an NHL sized rink on the third floor of the facility, a second level multi-purpose court, a fourth level lounge overlooking the ice, and a third level lounge overlooking the court.

Ten years ago when webcasting was ‘bleeding edge’ technology, Blomeley Communications, Sympatico/MSN and Bell StartCast teamed up to create and deliver one of the first NHL post game webcasts. An NHL internet first entitled ‘Behind the Bench’. BTB was initially produced following Toronto Maple Leaf home games with reports and interviews with then Head Coach Pat Quinn. The following season we launched the Ottawa Senators version of ‘Behind The Bench’ with Jacques Martin and then a couple of years later with Bryan Murray.
The Ottawa shows were hosted by Gord Wilson, the voice of Ottawa Senators Radio, Don Cherry’s Grapevine, and the NHLA Gala. Gord’s great work on ‘Behind the Bench’ helped to establish him as one of sports radio’s most consistent and versatile personalities.
Today the Ottawa Senators have advanced the IPTV program and have created a great integrated VIP Experience. Fans can purchase VIP seating, with a VIP lounge and dinner, and VIP seating for the live post game All-Access webcasts! www.senators.nhl.com
This 2014-15 season will be Gord’s tenth year as host of the post game webcasts.
We are pleased to announce that Ed Blomeley, CEO of the Blomeley Group of Companies, has been featured in the Ottawa Business Journal’s Who’s Who.
If you can’t expand the above OBJ August 2016 article, here’s the spiel…
Profiles of key executives at some of the top film and television companies in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 66 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region, Profiles by Jacob Serebin.
Ed Blomeley, CEO The Blomeley Group of Cos.
Ed Blomeley got his start working in radio broadcasting before moving into TV and now, streaming video over the internet. He’s the president and CEO of Blomeley Communications, a company he started in 1988. His previous positions include working in radio and as a freelance sports broadcaster, as well as spending six years working at CJOH-TV. While covering the Calgary Olympics, he heard about an opportunity in Ottawa. “At the time,” he says,, “Ottawa didn’t really have a core of sports broadcasters.” So he came back to the city and set up shop. His education background is in broadcasting, which he studied at Algonquin College. Some of the notable projects include producing Don Cherry’s Rock’em Sock’em DVDs every year as well as working on the coverage of three Olympic Games. He is currently in the process of developing and launching an online television channel named TruckGuysTV. Given his long history in the sports broadcasting world, it’s no surprise that Mr. Blomeley’s favourite TV programs are sports related. He says he loves the beginnings and ends of sports broadcasts – the pundits, the features, the intros and recaps.
