Extraordinary Lives – Doc TV Series
“Extraordinary Lives” was a 13 X 30 documentary series that highlighted ordinary people with extraordinary lives. It presented quite a challenge from an editing perspective as the series format mandated no narration and that the entire story be told solely through interviews. Each episode focused on two people whose stories shared a common theme. Interview subjects that I edited included Phyllis Peterson, Dave Rodney, Josh Hall, Laurie White, Matthew Lien, Katarina Ollikainen, Alan Canfora, Brent Dyer, Tere Duperrault Fassbender, and pre-“Survivorman” Les Stroud. This project won me (and fellow editor Trevor Aikman) an award for Best Visual Effects at the 2001 Saskatchewan SMPIA Showcase Awards.
