Symbol Syndication’s Video Production Projects

Since Symbol Syndication was founded, we have shot and edited over 150 professional videos for clients. Here we’d like to share some of our favourites, curated for viewing.

Ambition – A Symbol Syndication Original

This is Jonathan Hafichuk’s entry into the 2018 Calgary Professional Videographer’s Association annual film contest. The video is also the trailer for a series we will be launching in September of 2018. Also, the series is called “The Ambition Project” and features prominent Calgary entrepreneurs.

Panasonic “Saves the Day” at Masterpiece Retirement

Panasonic was looking for a way to showcase the use of their technology in a high-end retirement facility. The facility is near Calgary and Lethbridge, Alberta. Their marketing agency then determined video would be the best way to do this. Thus, we created a case study video for use in business-to-business sales. Case study videos can also be an amazing tool. This is because they show potential clients the value of a product such as this. It also shows the benefits the video can have to an organization.

Virtual Gurus Promo Reel

Virtual Gurus came to us because they needed a product video for an online conference they were a part of. We’re really happy with how this video came together, especially only having 4 days to pull it off.

House Beats & Business By Symbol Syndication

Symbol Syndication presents House Beats & Business, a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Calgary. It is also a networking opportunity to connect with like-minded Calgary business owners in a fun environment.

A big thanks to the sponsors of the event for making this possible. Sponsors:McRally LLP, Flagship Business Brokers, Paper Crane, Don Gable, TWT Group Inc and Westmaids.

Scotch & Cigar Dinner by The Progress Club

Litwiniuk and Company

Litwiniuk & Company hired Symbol Syndication to produce a 40-second video. The goal was to introduce them at a company culture awards gala. Also, the criteria of the video was that it had to feel like an action movie trailer. For our video production process, we modelled it roughly after the trailer for Inception and also tried to give it a similar feel.

A big thanks to Hummingbird Studios for creating the music.

Nissan Titan Ride and Drive Event

Nissan Canada put on an event for the Canada Grey Cup where they let people drive a Nissan Titan through a closed course to try it out. We at Symbol Syndication produced a short highlight video of the event. We also did photography for the event.

Trak Kayak on Vancouver Island

Trak Kayaks hired us to come hang out with them on Vancouver Island near Nanaimo. Trak has been an absolutely amazing client to work with over the last couple of years. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed being a part of their journey creating the ultimate touring kayak. TRAK has been manufacturing portable performance kayaks since 2006.

With the support of the paddling community, they’ve reengineered their boats. They are lighter and stronger, building the ultimate in a touring kayak. Learn more:

Hudsons Canada Video Content Creation

Hudsons Canada hired us to produce several videos for them. They are to promote the different packages they offer for events. These include birthdays, stags, and more. You can see these videos playing in their locations throughout Western Canada.

Street Machine Weekend

Street Wheelers Car Club organizes the Street Machine Weekend in Lethbridge. The event takes an estimated 5,000 man-hours to plan and hold the show. They promote the event extensively all throughout Alberta and nationwide to car enthusiasts. The club promotes the city and the events at every car show its members attend. The event generates over $2.2 million into the retail economy of Lethbridge approximately. This is the second year we have done videography for the event. We covered the event first in 2017, we also did marketing for them.

Calgary Kidsfest

The Calgary International Children’s Festival (Kidsfest) celebrates its 32nd anniversary this season. Since starting in 1987, Kidsfest has grown to be one of the most prominent festivals of its kind in the country. It is also the largest presenter of performing arts for young people in Calgary.

Ninja Warrior Parkour

Check out Max Henry’s (our main Ninja) Free Guide to Parkour:

There have been many gimmick-filled parkour videos over the last few years. This has started since Devinsupertramp released his Assassin’s Creed in Real Life video. We even made one, Deadpool Parkour in Real Life which was, from a vitality standpoint, a major hit. Generally, the parkour community disregards these videos due to a lack of “real” parkour. In Ninja Warrior Parkour we sought to change that (and maybe playoff the American Ninja Warrior craze a little). We brought in Max Henry from New York to be our main ninja and tried to even have a small element of a storyline around the video.

The Harvest Haven Store – Take Two

Being our first client, we are excited to see Harvest Haven finally open their new store after starting construction on it 11 years ago. The building is incredible and the fresh bread from the wood-fired oven is to die for. We’re happy we could provide videography and photography the opening of the store on this special day for them

Matador Pizza and Steakhouse

Since 1976, Matador Pizza has been a fixture in the Calgary community. Known for their great tasting food, friendly service and a great environment to dine. Also, they use local Calgary ingredients in their homemade recipes. They strive to maintain the same freshness and quality that has become the standard for over 35 years. We enjoyed shooting and eating while making this captivating video for them.

Deadpool Parkour

The Deadpool parkour and freerunning in real life video was by far the most creative and unique video to date. Viral by design, you can also see the results of our effort in the over 1.4 million views this video has received. Additionally, we shot this video in downtown Calgary.

You can see the behind-the-scenes on our blog.

Fresh Fest 2018 – University of Lethbridge ULSU

The University of Lethbridge Students Union brought us in the capture video of the amazing show that they call Fresh Fest. We did same day recaps and a highlight reel.

Fresh Fest is an event run by the University of Lethbridge Students’ Union (ULSU). They aim to bring the new body of students together. They do this while also welcoming back returning students.

During Fresh Fest, students get several days of activities. They are able to take part in events and fun shenanigans as well. The goal is to help build relationships, explore the campus, and start the university experience the right way. Learn more:

Lethbridge Electronic Music Festival 2018 (LEMF)

The Lethbridge Electronic Music Festival is an annual event put on in the heart of Lethbridge to showcase electronic music DJs. This was the second year we produced a highlight video for it.
