Our Latest Film Production! Able Taxi, Orillia ON

8 Jun


I’m very happy to announce our latest film production, an online promo video for Able Taxi in Orillia!

It was a big endeavour, and it came together with a solid amount of team work. I can’t express how supportive John Beck, the owner of Able Taxi was in providing us with everything we needed to make this film a reality.

It was astounding how much positive feedback I got from Orillia citizens about Able Taxi. One friend of ours, who works at a medical facility stated that when patients need a ride home, nine times out of ten they ask for Able Taxi.Β It was great to create a visual message like this for a company that already has a reputation in the community for delivering top notch customer service – They’ll even deliver your groceries! ; )

    I heard about this commercial from my mother-in-law (the elderly lady Isobel) starring in it. I just saw it for the first time and had to write. I don’t know how much you had to do with the creation of the commercial but I’d like to applaud you. This commercial was well done and funny and Isobel did a fabulous job acting. I could see many people relying on Able Taxi in Orillia. It makes me want to do a commercial for our business.

      Hey Charlotte, thanks for your kind words πŸ™‚ And I agree, Isobel did a fantastic job!

      I wrote the commercial, produced and directed it with help from a small crew including my brother who is an audio engineer, my wife Lydia who staged and helped direct, and Jeff Andrews who gave a hand in editing towards the end of the project.
