With many of our shows in production and development, TIFF has become a regular and busy event. Getting around downtown Toronto to meetings or to the studio during TIFF can be a challenge. But you have to admit that we all get a lot of work out it. So two thumbs up.
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.

“Which politician is the Best Sports Fan? …Hockey Historian Stephen Harper? Baseball Owner GW Bush?…or the President of Belarus Alexander Lukshenko?

GBB is a conversation catalyst. A sports/history media franchise with radio, television, internet, and mobile distribution applications. The genesis of GBB is a daily series of radio interstitial programs which air nationally on the TSN Radio Network. Each GBB interstitial is designed to engage listener opinions with a forum of stories, anecdotes, facts and arguments about ‘who, ‘what’, ‘where’ or ‘when’ … Good, Better, or Best…or not!

Blomeley believes in wearable technology, and we have been promoting and working on this type of mobile technology for several years. So when Apple CEO Tim Cook announced at the ‘All Things Digital’ conference last week, that the future of wearable technology “…could be profound…”, we cheered! BTW: On a side note Dick Tracy introduced mobile wearable technology half a century ago. 🙂
From one of our favorite business channels and multi-platform broadcasters,’Bloomberg’…

Over the past year or so we have produced various shows and video elements for the Library of Parliament, ‘en français et en anglais’. Much of the content has been for the Library’s ‘Youth Connection’ YouTube Channel and website which has ingeniously incorporated web, video, social media, and mobile apps etc. It is an excellent resource for anyone (not just youth) who want to know more about the Canadian Parliamentary System and Parliament Hill.
One of our most recent shows is a promo for another valuable Library of Parliament Education Program, “Teachers Institute Week”…
As we posted previously in our January blog…
We just spent a week with a group of teachers from across the country who were participating in the Library of Parliament’s “Teachers Institute Week”. TI Week is a unique professional development opportunity for teachers of governance and citizenship education. They get to see firsthand how Parliament works and much more. The teachers met and interacted with MPs, Senators, the House and Senate Speakers, Clerks, and even the Media who cover the affairs of Parliament.
From our outside looking in position, TI Week is a very worthwhile endeavour. An amazing trickle down education process that will benefit thousands of students who someday will be voters and possibly decision makers in their communities.
Here is a link to the TI Week website: http://www.parl.gc.ca/About/Parliament/Education/TeachersInstitute/index.asp?Language=E
October 2012, Ottawa – Blomeley Communications is pleased to have worked with one of Canada’s most influential and respected business groups, the Canadian Council of Chief Executives.
On September 24-25, 2012, the Canadian Council of Chief Executives hosted “Canada in the Pacific Century”, a conference bringing together leaders from business, government, academia, and other key groups to discuss Asia’s rise and the implications for Canada. Blomeley shot and produced a series of one-on-one interviews with several conference attendees and will continue to work with CCCE management on expanding the organization’s digital media presence.
The CCCE is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization composed of the CEOs of Canada’s leading enterprises, who collectively administer C$4.5 trillion in assets, have annual revenues in excess of C$850 billion, and are responsible for the vast majority of Canada’s exports, investment, research and development, and training. The CCCE engages in an active program of public policy research, consultation and advocacy. They are a source of thoughtful, informed comment from a business point of view on issues of national importance to the economic and social fabric of Canada.
Watching TV last night and on CTV’s eTalk they were chatting about Justin Beiber and his stage show in support of his third album ‘Believe’. …and it made me think about how many songs or shows or inspirational messages that are centered around the word ‘Believe’.
Of course it also brought me back to when Blomeley Communications produced all of the behind the scenes and media for Bell’s Olympic Inspired music video ‘Believe’, which was part of the campaign leading up to the highhly successful Vancouver Olympic Games.
We produced for IMAX, for Bell TV, for Sympatico.msn, and the web. Stephen Scott of Fireboy films directed the main ‘Olympic Inspired’ video. He and his team did a great job of capturing the emotion of the song, Suzy’s performance, and the dedication of Canada’s athletes.
Our video and behind-the-scenes show was part of Bell’s Olympic promotion. In my opinion Suzy’s song is the best of all the ‘Believe’ titled songs out there. Better than Cher’s song called Believe. Better than Beiber’s Believe, and certainly better than U-Kiss. But I do like the Brooks & Dunn song titled ‘Believe’ :-).
Here are a bunch of links to the various Susy McNeil ‘Believe Videos’
