Airing September 2nd, 2017 on CBC
This time last year the Trekkit crew was just finishing shooting for this film, now after hours of editing and working closely with CBC, its ready for TV!
It will be on the Absolutely Maritimes program on September 2nd at 8:00 PM on CBC, then available online global shortly after the broadcast.
Click here for the background on the story of how this project got started.
Please take a look at the teaser trailer below.
To hear my thoughts on the project and my love for the Maritimes please listen to the recent radio interviews where I had the wonderful opportunity to discuss the project on CBC Radio in Fredericton and Saint John.
Below is the links to the interviews:
A big part for me doing these video projects is selecting the right music to help spur the emotion for each location. I used Caleb Miles, “Old Man on the Porch“ to close the film. Great song!

The true stars of the show where:
- Meat Cove, Nova Scotia
- Walton Glen Gorge, New Brunswick
- Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick
In the show we do extensive aerial videography at each location and there are lots of cameos of places we have visited before and along the way. It did not go as smooth at each location so a few of the misadventures made it into the film, makes for some light hearted moments.
Special Thanks to the following folks and organizations for helping to make this happen
- CBC, Peter Hall
- Province of New Brunswick
- Transport Canada
- Aaron McCrorie & Natasha Gauthier
- Royal Canadian Mounted Police
- C/M Paul Greene & Cst. Derek Black at J Division
