Thanks for checking out what’s happening at Dirty T Shirt Productions.


First big item of news out of Dirty T Shirt Productions is that we’ve signed a contract with CBC for a broadcast license for Tailwind: Prairie Harvest. Many of you  have viewed Tailwind at the premier or on MTS Stories From Home.


The premiere of the movie on CBC will be Saturday July 13th 2013 at 7 PM. It will be broadcast across Manitoba and will be broadcast nationally if it gets good ratings.


In order to fit the 1 hour broadcast spot we will be extending the movie from 25 to 45 minutes. Expect a more in depth look at the local food producers, longer visits to the beautiful locales on our route around Manitoba and lots of unseen footage.


We’re all pumped to add CBC as a client and start what we hope to be a long term relationship.


Thanks to  Chris & Ryan Mitchell and Gui Borgstrom for helping to produce this movie. Great work team.



During May we finished up a website for Brandon Business Interiors.

They came to us wanting to create the best looking website amongst their competitors in Manitoba and I think we have succeeded.

The website makes it easy for visitors to drill down into the content and find exactly what they’re looking for.

The site looks greats on both desktop and mobile and sets them up to create content on a regular basis to help tell their story.



We wrapped up a couple of videos for Tourism Dauphin they use to draw people to the area both to live and visit.



Filming continues to progress on the Dauphin’s Countryfest Documentary. We visited Dauphin native Gary Procyshen who loves the festival so much that he wrote a song about it.



We finished editing a video for Frank’s Computer’s that helps to summarize what they do at their 2 businesses.



Over 2 days we filmed a series of videos for the newly merged Catalyst Credit Union. We traveled across the Parkland to Dauphin, Roblin, Ethelbert, Inglis and other small towns. Expect the video to be out later this month.





As I write this I am preparing to head to the Banff Media Festival which is an annual meeting of the television industry in North America.

Broadcasters and producers from across the globe gather in Banff to pitch projects, network and make deals. To put things in perspective over $800 Million dollars of sales were done at Banff last year so it is a serious affair.

This is my first time at an event like this and I am looking to sell some of our documentaries that are finished or in progress as well as meet broadcasters in the documentary / environmental / adventure genre so that I can pitch them in the future.

Thanks to On Screen Manitoba for helping out with the cost of attending and their continued support.


We filmed a ‘President’s Message’ for McMunn & Yates, a growing Manitoba company that is currently purchasing McDearmid Lumber as it continues to grow across the prairies.




Plans continue for the Riding Mountain National Park Film Festival that I am starting this year.

The festival will be held from July 16th – 20th in Riding Mountain National Park ( Dauphin & Wasagaming ) and will feature a digital media camp, screenings of independent movies ( environmental, eco, adventure, local genres ) as well as a ‘Dinner and a Movie’ at a local restaurant.

Expect a website with schedules, movies etc to be posted over the next couple of weeks. Thanks to Parks Canada for jumping on board and being an enthusiastic partner for this event.


That is just some of the projects that we wrapped up in May. Thanks again for stopping by the site and learning more! Enjoy the summer months!

    A very well done on your business and the promotion of Manitoba. Just wondering about the date for Tailwind: Prairie Harvest – was it on CBC last year as you indicate a 2012 date but July 13th would be a Saturday for 2013. Sheila and I would like to watch it but want to make sure we have the right date.
    Again, all the best.
