Boo!v02

Oct312014
bv02 is a creative agency full of creative folk. Is it any wonder that we love Halloween so much? This year, we had our best turnout yet for costumes. Tina Turner repeatedly belted out her greatest hit, fawns and werewolves (with unexplained laser guns?) pounced and prowled. The human embodiment of sriracha brought a spicy flavour into our lives and even Lucas’…

Halloween 2013

Nov052013
We look for any reason to get creative around the office, so it’s no surprise that when Halloween comes around every year, we get pretty excited. With everyone dressed up, a photo shoot busted out in the studio mid-afternoon. The costumes ranged from witches to superheroes to the scariest thing in the world: a PC. One member of the team even dressed up as another…

Nothing Gold Can Stay (SXSW Wrap Up)

Mar152012
What can I say about my last couple days at south by… Holy Crap is the only thing that comes to mind. I think I’m just going to have to braindump everything, so bear with me.

Matt's Video Corner - Algonquin Park Camping

Jul282010
Welcome to Matt’s video corner. I realized recently that I shoot a lot of video.  I shoot video of the things I do, the events I attend, and the places I go.  I’ll be posting updates of all the videos that the bv02 team and I produce for fun. So. Here is a video summation of my trip to Algonquin Park earlier this year. Enjoy! https://player.vimeo.com/video/13661589…

Put your foot on the ground.

Jul192010
We grow up learning so little about the Arctic and northern exploration. The amount of history, science, geography, culture, animal and plant life that surrounds the Arctic is beyond imagination. There is a common notion that you have to be an experienced explorer to go on an Arctic adventure, but such assumptions are untrue. A trip to the Arctic is an incredible…
