The Beginning …

Besides graphic design, Salt Water Communications Inc. was a full service television production and post production facility co-owned by Judy Atkinson and Richard Games. We loved this work, but found the time commitment for these types of projects did not allow for other things we enjoy doing. We sold the last of our broadcast equipment in 2014. Since then Richard has pursued a new career as a Chartered Professional Accountant (MyCPAs.ca).


Photography

I worked for several years as a media producer where I took hundreds and hundreds of photos for events, displays, and documentation. Richard and I were photographers for many clients and events throughout the years using traditional and digital equipment. In 2010 we sold all photography equipment and concentrated fully on graphic design. Here are a few photos …

Television

Since starting in 1996, Salt Water produced numerous projects and worked as a service provider for many producers on national and international television projects (Oxygen Sports USA, Pro Seiben Germany, TSN Florida, TSN Canada, CBC, CTV, Global, Walt Disney, WETV, and others) as well as many independant producers. Due to copyright, music, and talent release conditions we are unable to post videos at this time. Some Past Broadcast Projects are:

35 Years in the Life
Co-Produced with Island Images Inc.
Five – 60 minute documentaries for CBC Newsworld

In the late 1960's, CBC launched a groundbreaking series called Five Years in the Life. It profiled ordinary and not-so-ordinary young people living their lives in the electric millieu of Canada in the (first) Trudeaumania years. Its mission was to return five years later to follow up on each subject's hopes and dreams. Fourty-two families saw their lives captured on film. However, only a handful were revisited before the series was cancelled and banished to the vaults of CBC's archives.

35 Years in the Life explored what happened to some of those families in a five-part documentary series that reflects the psyche of the century's boomer generation, amid dreams both shattered and realized.
