THE SPOTS

MCDONALDS

Big Tasty

Masterful comedic use of slow motion (or lack thereof) showcase Trevor’s ability to use various film techniques to enhance or misdirect for comedic effect.

BC DAIRY

Cop Car

Again using film techniques to enhance the story, Trevor tells this story in a single shot cop-car mount – showing it’s okay to never completely grow up!

SHOCK TOP

Six Pack

This is a great example of Trevor’s work with hidden cameras/real people as well as working with puppetry and improvisation. Together they combine for hilarious results in this piece for Shock Top.

VAN HOUTTE

The Vans

This spot showcases some of Trevor’s ability to capture beautiful cinematography and different visual styles. The result is a memorable film saluting all “Vans”.

BC LIONS

Vending Machine

Trevor shows his ability to direct physical and performance comedy in this piece. Always relatable and hilarious.

BOYS & GIRLS CLUB

Race for Kids

This film for Boys & Girls Club allows Trevor to show off a more serious side, using striking imagery and perfect pacing to highlight an important cause.

RICK HANSEN FOUNDATION

Djami Diallo

Again, Trevor strikes a more serious chord here, using his film experience and techniques to tell a compelling story of a Canadian Paralympic athlete.
