While Vancouver is known as an outdoor city, a green city, a tech city and a livable city, it’s easy forget that at its heart it’s a port city. Without the port, it’s not unreasonable to say that Vancouver would be a very different place.
From the moment we saw the brief, we knew this was a perfect assignment for us. The project involved pairing up Vancouver residents who are connected through the port - through their jobs, hobbies or history.
Working closely with the team at TAXI, the production was built with a focus on local. The location was a music studio that saw former glory as Vancouver’s first City hall (and at another time a police station and a morgue), and the photo the backdrop was hand painted by artists a stone’s throw from port itself.
