According to Rick Thomas, one of a city’s greatest strengths lies in the collective ideas of its residents—and great cities find innovative ways to tap into that.

How does a theatre company makes a kids TV show? Meet Joel Goundry and the team at RoadwestPictures! They took Green Fools News to the next level with their film expertize.

As a Calgary-based video production house focused on creative, entertaining and engaging content, our projects vary widely, and range from a documentary series about Caregiving, to promotional material for the egg industry, to fundraising material for the Calgary Public Library Foundation. Through all of this, what we value most are the connections we make - the connections that make us dig deeper to really understand. Joel Goundry, the company’s Artistic Producer & Production Manager, has a background in children’s entertainment, having run a touring children’s theatre company in Calgary for 10 years prior to entering film. Roadwest’s work has spanned many genres and approaches, and Joel’s recent work producing the 13-episode documentary web-series Being There (produced in participation with TELUS Fund) speaks to the integrity of his work: on projects dealing with emotionally sensitive subjects and participants, it is the relationship between collaborators that Joel feels is so important. Since its inception, Roadwest is very familiar with the necessary aspects to see a project through to completion, and highly values creating an emotionally impactful and visually strong final product.

Join us on Saturday for the Green Fools News Drive-In at the TELUS Spark Science Centre! Tickets are $25 per vehicle and the show starts at 3pm.
