Before there was Drywater Productions, there was just Stephen and Cameron Pickering: two crazy newlyweds who took a leap of faith at the end of 2005 to start a business. Using all of their wedding money, they bought their first cameras, and from their wedding announcement in the newspaper, they got their first paid job.
Two months earlier, Stephen graduated with a degree in Video Production from Vancouver Film School, Canada’s Premier Entertainment Arts School based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Following his dream to start his own video production company, he first returned home to marry his high school sweetheart, Cameron, and together they formed Drywater Productions. Of course the next logical step when launching a start-up would be to buy a 19 century home, launch into a massive renovation project, and then have 5 kids, but we digress. The Pickerings worked hard, burning the midnight oil, learning new technology and current video production trends in order to make their company one of the best and help them get closer to fulfilling their end goal: making full feature films.
Over the last 12 years, Drywater Productions has become one of the Midwest’s premier video production companies, honing their talent for capturing the stories of individuals to international brands alike using creative and cinematic visuals and building their experience in event videography, cinematography, commercial production, 2D and 3D video animation, script-writing, and Special FX.
