OCEAN ECONOMY | Journeyman video production & video marketing

We’re based in Canada’s Ocean City, so it’s natural that we shoot on, near, and in the ocean.

It’s a deep mystery. It’s rich with potential. We want to help Canadians, the next generation, the world … see oceans and our role in it, through new captivating video content.


Client: Halifax Partnership

Nova Scotia’s Ocean Sector is producing great stories of innovative entrepreneurs. UK-born entrepreneur Tom Knox got a $20,000 grant and built his prototype connector in his own garage. It immediately started selling internationally as it was revolutionary in size and power, helping to monitor the turbines in the Bay of Fundy in harsh, extreme conditions. We had fun making ocean technology look and feel beautiful and fascinating through this video marketing piece for the Partnership, even if it's hard to figure out exactly what the gadgets are doing!

For Carmen Lawrence, a close encounter with a whale as a young girl stirred something in her. Growing up in a small rural fishing community, she recognized an opportunity to combine her natural curiosity with a desire to contribute to the burgeoning ocean economy around her. And she is able to make that happen at Nova Scotia Community College.

What do Halifax and Nova Scotia have that’s special and different?  Science. Defence. Education. Technology. Shipbuilding. Tourism. There’s something that touches all of these. The ocean. That big, blue, dramatic, perplexing, beautiful Atlantic which gets into our blood and inspires us. We’re Ocean Innovators living, working and thriving in “Canada’s Ocean City”. Here's a video produced for regional promotion and economic development, to put Halifax on the map.


Client: Premium Seafoods

Back in 1992, the fishing industry was collapsing in Atlantic Canada. Two cousins had just started up a fishing company a few years before and were facing an uncertain future for themselves and their community. Today, these two hard-working Acadian boys have a thriving company — and community. They needed video content to help them market to the world. This is an early Journeyman "deep cut" from 2010, a company promotion video filmed in a very charming small town atmosphere, with seafood and rum on offer after our days of filming!


Client: Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI)

Nova Scotia is famous for its lobster and seafood, and the humble oyster has become part of that menu. The team at Eel Lake display the same humility, motivated by a love for what they do and getting the best possible product from water to plate as quickly as possible. So sit back and enjoy local oysters in their full glory. Sometimes in video marketing, it's nice to let the visuals and close ups of places and processes tell the story.


Client: Irving Shipbuilding / Communications Nova Scotia

Back in 2011, the Halifax shipyard was abuzz with the opportunity for the next generation of Navy ships to be built in Halifax, a decision with the potential to transform the provincial economy over the next generation. We produced this film to help generate positive support for Irving’s bid. The Halifax Shipyard won its huge contract, and it was thanks to everyone pulling on the levers collectively to win this through video marketing and other marketing efforts. It was a full city win!
