Episode 7 – RCMP/GRC

Well, this episode was fun. Media Relations Officer, Constable Rob Gardner was my guest for this show. What did I miss all these years? Find the show on ShawTV North Island & Powell River.

The show is now on YouTube! Have a watch from right here if you want!

Note: During the show Rob and I talked about an old training video. The link for it is here. I wanted to put some of it on the show however CBC wanted a lot of cash to allow me to use even a few seconds of the clip.

Here are a few more links to videos that were supplied by the RCMP/GRC:

Volunteer Producer

My bio on ShawTV
My bio on ShawTV

I once did a TV show in Istanbul with a small salary and a zero-production budget. Now, I have a TV show and although ShawTV is co-producing it with me, as you can see, I’m a volunteer/access producer. Which means, I now have no financial gain from doing this. I hope to find sponsors, that may or may not happen. So, it is always nice to know that you support and my hope is that in sharing the people that have a story to tell will make a difference.

With this said, I hope that you can consider making a small donation to the show. I hope that someday soon I can move the show, or create another one with a commercial broadcaster. I have a lot of stories to share and I hope that I can keep doing this. If you cannot help out financially, then all I need is for you to share and comment on the posts I make on my website.

YouTube Playlist

xRdsTV on ShawTV

Well, there we go the YouTube playlist is now available for Martin @ the Crossroads.

It is wonderful to report that five of my shows have already aired on ShawTV! The beauty of this is that there are so many ways to watch the show. You can watch it on Shaw’s Channel 4 on the north island and in Powell River throughout on a biweekly rotation of nearly 20 time slots, or you can PVR it. Additionally, once the show has been aired, it is available on YouTube! Yes, you can watch at your leisure whenever and wherever you like.

How do you find the YouTube playlist? Well, my page is the place to get the details. So, for those of you that have not found a way to watch, all you have to do is click here for the playlist! From art to aviation. How about hockey? You cannot not find something to watch so far. And! There is much more to come!

Remember! The more you watch the better my chances are of finding sponsors!

Green Screens and behind the scenes

Bunny is my little dog. She is seen here on the green screen cyclorama. Camera testing with animals is a fun yet trying experience. After getting Bunny to be comfortable on the cloth, we found out that she is so white on her chest that she was actually reflecting the green! This makes it almost impossible to do a proper composite background later in post production.

You see, the green will bleed the background video or image onto her body. Not the desired effect. So, turns out we will likely have to go with a blue screen to do any shots with her. Good thing our new screen will be blue!

We hope to share our video with Bunny in another acting video. Real soon I hope!

Dracula is Coming to the Crossroads

It is the Halloween season and where there is a jack o’lantern, there is likely a vampire lurking somewhere. So in the spirit of this haunting night, what guest would not be better for me to find in a darkened building? No other than Dracula himself. In Courtenay of all places. I will be sharing his story and the story of some other characters found in Bram Stoker’s Dracula Ballet. Ballet? Yes, ballet! So, if you did not think ballet was for you… Maybe, just maybe, you’re going to find something else you did not know about yourself. Be prepared to be impressed!

Here is the teaser for the upcoming show featuring Ballet Victoria’s Dracula! Find the schedule on the calendar page – Martin
