Our first 10 years years were involved in creating corporate productions, training videos and commercials in Vancouver. After that we moved to Television and produced documentaries for A&E, Discovery Channel and many more international broadcasters. Another adventure started when working for the Food Network in the US and Canada and the reason why we created a subsidiary company called DVCuisine for all our culinary documentaries.
This gave us an opportunity to travel the world meeting amazing and world renowned chefs who we always treated with the respect they deserved. Many of them are great friends to this day. While shooting in Victoria for the The Next Great Chef, a TV production that was nominated twice for a Gemini award, we fell in love with Vancouver Island. We moved to the island twelve years ago, looking for a relaxing life style or so called semi-retirement, but soon after we got involved in social issues.
Resilience, a documentary on the future of the Cowichan river was one of those. To show the beauty of the Cowichan Valley, we created Once upon a Day Cowichan that has been viewed on YouTube and Vimeo by over 250,000 people. A year at Butchart Gardens was another highlight in our productions, especially working with composer Eric Smith, who arranged all our music compositions.
When Eric passed away suddenly one year ago he left a void that will be difficult to replace. On March 28, 2019 we will premiere our final documentary A Just Society, which is the story of the substance abuse crisis in the Cowichan Valley and Victoria and certainly one of the most challenging productions we ever produced.
You will still be able to download our productions from our website DVCuisine.com. Producer Nick Versteeg’s passion has always been in the culinary world, so stay tuned as other adventures might be coming in the future.
From all of us at DVMedia, a sincere Thank You to all the people who were part of the many productions we created and thanks to all the clients who supported us over the past 39 years.
