The 2017 Juno Awards It's been a busy couple of months in Ottawa with lots of large productions coming to town. Jon was recording sound at multiple events across the city during the week of the 2017 Juno Awards. Some highlights were interviewing bands at the Canadian Tire Centre before their sound check, and skating on the ice with Juno nominees and NHL players at the Juno Cup. Another great event was for the MusiCounts Band Aid Program, where $10,000 in musical instruments was awarded to St. Elizabeth school, and the crowd was treated to a performance by Juno winner Ruth B.

The Amazing Race Another fun project was filming the winners of The Amazing Race Canada, Steph and Kristen, while they interviewed the top 10 teams who submitted audition tapes for the race. Steph and Kristen joined the teams for some fun activities across town like rock climbing and pole dancing.

IMG_1089-1 Over the last couple of months, Jon has been recording sound on a TV series called "À Nous Le Monde" which is produced by Léa Pascal Productions. The show follows the journey of 10 young adults from all walks of life, overcoming personal challenges and making a difference.

This past fall the show went up to La Tuque in Northern Quebec to interview a young aboriginal woman and her family in a Wemotaci community. The show has also travelled around Montreal to showcase the lives of 2 extraordinary young women: one excelling through medical school, and the other overcoming the difficulties associated with being a Muslim woman in today's society. The crew also travelled to Sudbury to film a young man from Africa, and witnessed him stepping out of his comfort zone by interviewing strangers at a ski mountain and discussing serious topics affecting youth today.

Le Choc Des Bolides We are winding down after a very busy summer! We started off by mixing a show called "Les Belles Du Vent", which showcases female kite surfers across Québec and will be aired on Canal D later this year. Next up we did some shoots for the History Channel Canada on a show called "War Story". This series interviews veterans from numerous conflicts throughout our history, and tells their story from the war to present day.




Le Choc Des Bolides Travelling across Ontario, Jon recorded sound for a show produced by Balestra Productions called "Les Jumelles". The show is similar to the Amazing Race where teams race across the city to find clues and compete to cross the finish line first. The show was a lot of fun despite the extreme heat this summer, and the cast and crew were incredible! Finally, we had a lot of fun recording sound for a show about demolition derbies called "Le Choc des Bolides". It was amazing getting close to the action seeing cars and trucks smash into each other, and hearing the roar of the crowd cheering them on. This show is produced by Léa Pascal Productions and we are set to mix the 6 episodes for Canal D early 2017.

Location audio, booming Over the last 6 weeks, Jon has been working as the boom op for CBC's "Toi et Moi". This is season 2 of a great Canadian show produced by Slalom Productions for Radio Canada. The show was filmed all across Ottawa including areas of the Glebe, Byward Market and the National Gallery of Canada.

Location audio, booming




The show had many challenges including scenes with up to 20 actors & extras, sometimes filming in tight locations with multiple cameras and a full crew. Some scenes called for Jon to boom on top of ladders, balconies, lofts and spiral staircases...anything to capture the best audio possible. Despite the difficult scenes and schedule, everyday on the job was incredible and the crew was amazing. Being the boom op for Toi et Moi was an experience of a lifetime and we can't wait to work on more great gigs like this in the future.
