When you take the time to read to credits, you learn it takes hundreds even thousands to make a vision a reality. Highlight event this year was a a trip to John Scott's Ranch, world renowned.
You can taste the decades of excellence and passion for ranching and film. Breathe taking.
Gone are the years past, this year CIFF shared the true meaning of collaboration through a diversified schedule of film and events that included all film lovers! Even room for an unofficial Pyjama Party.
Favourite Film this year was "Diablo", filmmaker Lawrence Roeck and his team delivered, leaving the audience wanting more.

Canadians have been enjoying the story telling of  Paul Gross for some time now... I was completely taken with his latest Film "Hyena Road". This project somehow feels like it will need a mantle.
Well done to the executive, the staff, the volunteers, the film community and the people with passion for a story well told. CIFF 2015 was a complete success. Calgary is on the map for film done right, stop by some time...

At this point there is still a life time left when it comes to The Campaign trail.
For those that know me, it's no secret I am in engaged in the Political Process. I study politics, public policy, the Senate, strategy and so much more for fun. Well not just for fun. I do enjoy learning the details of the systems that provide for and regulate my everyday life.
Typically I support valuable individuals in their quest for office. I'm old fashioned, I think it's honourable to serve a country that people have come to historically to escape from hardship.
This past week I had the great fortune to attend a fundraiser for former MLA Kent Hehr, incase you haven't heard, Kent is running in the federal election for Calgary Centre. www.KentHehr.Liberal.ca
The thing about Kent Hehr is he gets Alberta. To listen and learn from Kent's incredible journey. You know he understands the people he seeks to serve, all the people, not just the ones in red. Find out more about Kent on Facebook and Twitter
This was also the week all the Leaders rolled into town. The stage was set and a Great Debate was had. For me its not about the win, it's about the conversation. I love debate, this one did not disappoint in showing first hand the faces of our next Prime Minister.
Events always have a story to tell. So we are in Calgary it should be of no surprise there would be a strong showing of support for the Progressive Conservatives.
Honestly after what's happened to our Province of Alberta this past while I was a bit relived to see the wave of blue.

I've always believed in Canada. Always. Regardless of my own political views, I believe in the privilege of democracy.
I believe in the right to vote for the voice that best represents you. I believe all voice's seeking to serve, have the right to run a campaign free of hatred and personal attack.
I was taught Canada is a melting pot, a place where peace and prosperity are worth protecting...

#BWMF2015 ~ #Banff2015

I was recalling about how many years I have been going to the Banff World Media Festival.
At first it was a social thing, the early 2000's mostly the odd presentation and the gala's, the people, the party's. A see and be seen kind of thing. Living in the Rockies at the time made it even more accessible, it has always been a celebration of individual efforts and success within the industry.
Somewhere along the line I started to take the festival in from a studious perspective, time to take things a bit more seriously. My focus began to shift from my on camera, production and post production work to my writing and my communication skills.
By the time I had been developing Carazcom Modern Communications Model, the research was key and valuable, BWMF offered a chance for me to confirm and expand my thoughts with worldwide decision makers in an industry I have literally spent my life time engaged in.
Arts, Entertainment, Media and Communications have always been the foundation of my passions.
This year like the past few years, I had my meetings set, time to bring my talk to the table.
Carazcom has brought independent producers projects to the experience and the conversation at Banff. This year Producer, Neil Enock and his itinkr StudiosSomeWhen.tv, and TrainTalk.tv were the focus of the content distribution talks.
2014 year was the year Carazcom introduced the World Media Community to ConvoyWW.com | Convoy Worldwide, Executive Protection and Elite Transportation. This year the conversation continues, it is a pleasure serving 'Stars' and those that create' them with style and safety.
Carazcom.com has been a source of support to many producers and projects. From the full slate of services to specific jobs, goals and out comes, Carazcom uses tools from the communications kit to meet your corporations PR and Project Management needs.
The highlight session at BWMF 2015 was without a doubt "Archer". Having accidentally fallen in love with the writing and the characters this past year. Having taking me five seasons to find it, is an occasion for binge watching. Seriously though so respectful of Adam Reeds brilliance as a writer. It was fabulous to sit in on the conversation. Love those, this is why moments...
Having lived in the paradise of the Bow Valley in the past, one might think I would get desensitized to the majesty of the mountains.
Still every time I am in the Rocky Mountains I feel my breathe being taken away, It's not just about the thin air. I couldn't help but play a bit of hooky to float in the hot pools and capture with my camera...

SomeWhen.tv's Social Presser | Indiegogo News


The Story of SomeWhen
SomeWhen is the story of three friends, Matt, Tom and Hank, who met on a movie set as background actors. Their common bond is their ongoing desire to get a ‘real’ role in a movie, and that has been continually thwarted by a system that will not consider them as anything other than ‘Extras’.
When Matt, the genius of the three, invents a time machine and convinces the others that it works, they decide to use it to go back in time with the simple intention of filming themselves ‘acting’ in various time periods. Their misguided goal? To put a demo reel together that may help them secure acting roles in the present.
As they stubbornly try to ‘keep it simple’, they begin to realize that what happens to them in the past and in the present will change their lives forever. Fortunately, the worst of their blunders seem to get ‘adjusted’ by an elusive steampunk-looking character that vanishes as mysteriously as he appears.
Meet the the Characters
Matt, Tom and Hank, experience the adventure along with them, watch "These Guys' embark on a journey they could not be less prepared for... Kind of like real life.

Neil Enock; Creator, Writer, Director, Producer of SomeWhen
Neil Enock is an admitted ‘tinkerer’. After creating and hosting the million-plus viewed TrainTalk.TV podcast he entered the film and television world. Neil has since been seen in The Klondike Mini-Series and in 2 & 3 season’s of AMC’s Hell on Wheels. He has lead roles in several independent short films and will appear in the movies Interstellar and Forsaken as they are released.
A great believer in independent productions, he often assists local and international projects in various capacities as crew or cast and has been known to lend his iTinkr studio to other productions. Neil also sits on the Board of Directors for the Canadian Indipro Alliance. As SomeWhen’s creator, Neil's current project is the Pilot episode ‘Fate’. 
Pilot Episode "Fate"
In the Pilot Episode, Matt gets his time machine to work and then has to convince the Tom and Hank that he has built something that actually works. It seems they have to learn the hard way, but once convinced they carefully plan their first trip to the past, deciding to travel to a time they are comfortable with, the Old West.
From the second they ‘land’ in the past their romanticized version of the the way things are is quickly shattered! Events unfold far too quickly and dangerously and in no time all they want to do is get back to their present. Although this is their first trip, They can’t shake a feeling that this was all supposed to happen, that something else is going on! Perhaps they are being watched by someone from… SomeWhen!
The journey has just begun. This is where YOU, yes you, come in. As with all indie productions until the production is picked up for broadcast or obtains major sponsorship.
