Bringing Film Jobs Back To Alberta

Grande Prairie

March 26, 2019


Great news about the Alberta Party proposal around the film industry. Like the line from the Tragically Hip,
“they shot a movie once in my hometown”. I had a very small role in the film but a really cool experience for a high school kid. In broadcast school I got a job in TV doing everything from hosting, cameras to production. My career was headed full steam ahead for television but my love of music and interaction with people took me to radio.

I love the opportunities we are creating for our kids using our creative resources to diversify our economy. There also comes a pride seeing places you’ve been up on the screen and maybe even running into a face you’ve never met but seen a hundred times.

It’s a fun dynamic the Alberta Party is proposing to create jobs and diversify our economy in the creative industries.
