RealWorld is pleased to announce that “Power to the People”, our newest environmental documentary series, has recently been funded for development. In Power to the People, series host and acclaimed environmentalist Melina Laboucan Massimo will travel to visionary communities to discover how renewable energy and sustainability is empowering First Peoples. In Canada and around the word, Melina will reveal revolutionary wind, solar, tidal, fuel cell and biomass projects, de-mystify their science, and examine the social and environmental benefits. Over the next few months, RealWorld will be mapping out thirteen half hour episodes and companion web strategy that will comprise our first season. Stay tuned for more next Spring.

Meet Javier – editor, camera operator and an important member of the RealWorld production team.  For the last three years ‘Javi’ has worked his way through post to become part of RealWorld’s on location camera crew.  From capturing great drone shots to framing supporting visuals, Javi’s work is on display in recent RealWorld projects like Face the Music and Native Planet.   With a great eye and storytelling intuition, Javi has elevated his role at RealWorld and is now part of a team developing a new 13 part factual series planned for production in 2017.

Meet Kim, she manages our productions, our office, and is generally the person who keeps RealWorld on track, on budget and organized.  Kim has been a vital part of RealWorld for over a decade and is well known and respected by our suppliers, broadcasters and funders.  Here’s a recent shot of her on location in Chile where she made sure the Native Planet production team was transported, amply fed and well rested for our first location shoot on Easter Island.  This year she’ll be spending more time on location as we increase the size of our crew and the scope of our productions, around the world.

For the last two years RealWorld has been patiently developing Semi Pro, a gritty, behind the scenes documentary that for the first time will take an audience inside the locker room to witness the season long journey of Semiahmoo Ravens A1 peewee hockey team (www.semipro.tv).  Now, this non-funded initiative and our in-house labor of love is finally nearing its finish line.  A rough cut of the documentary is set to release by the end of this year that RealWorld will use to attract completion and postproduction financing.  In the interim, check out the SemiPro documentary trailer here: https://vimeo.com/157049636 and visit www.semipro.tv to learn more about the project.
