Photoshop Disaster – RCA

In honour of the now-defunct original Photoshop Disasters blog, here’s a gem from the box for a RCA television.  They are so standing on that grass.

CP Rail – Behind the Scenes

We’ve really enjoyed shooting a series of ads for Canadian Pacific Railway throughout the year – here are some behind the scenes shots of us in action!  Or, at the very least standing around looking at computers and stuff, while our art director Nathan Gowsell does some real work!

“We spend $2 million every year in Metro Vancouver to repair damage caused by grease. And that’s not counting the costs to individual homeowners when their pipes get blocked. Wipe it and green bin it.”

Information posted on the trolleys:

“While electric trolleys in Sandon may seem like a ‘fish out of water’ this unique collection has attracted considerable interest from people of all walks of life, many of whom reminisce about their own experiences travelling in, driving or working on Brill trolleys (in some cases these very trolleys) in the many cities in which they operated.

Other than the very young, most North Americans have a personal connection to some kind of the Brill trolley and have fond memories attached to them. It is hoped that you too will enjoy seeing these preserved Brills in their many vartiations at Sandon until their final home is confirmed.”
