"It is with great pleasure that I recommend the creative skills and services provided by Craig McCallion. Craig has the unique ability to not only create an idea or vision, but the skillful knowledge and sharp creativity required to make it a reality. His abilities in producing, editing, and graphic creation are superior. It was a pleasure working with Craig, and being able to relive the Gala through his video. We have proudly shared it with our Gala award winners, sponsors, and industry partners."

Behind the Scenes
This contunues to be one of my favourite events to shoot. The Trillium Ballroom at the Shaw Centre serves as a perfect venue with Parliament Hill as its background. I alternated between using the gimbal and a tripod to capture multiple perspectives of event. I use the print collateral from the Gala as inspiration when me to animateing the titles, logo and sponsors.
Here is the 2015 Housing Design Awards Gala. GOHBA continues to use this video as a way to promote the event and to generate sponsorship.
This is the video I produced from the 2014 Housing Design Awards Gala. Prior to having an electronically stabilized gimbal, I used a Steadicam Merlin to capture dynamic footage.
