Our Production Team
Rachel Gauk: Executive Producer
Shadow Light Productions Ltd (SLP) was established with lead partners, Doug Latimer and Rachel Gauk in 2003, to produce commercial and educational content, documentaries and public service announcements (PSA) for television and clientele.
Their first documentary, The Vanishing Ice, premiered at Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, and aired on CBC Country Canada, with distribution by FilmWest Associates. Their Jasper National Park hour long doc, aired across North America, on CLT, ACCESS, CBC’s Country Canada and The Travel Channel in the U.S.
SLP are also specialists in creating and coordinating large scale video projects (like their Raising Our Healthy Kids collection of over 100 short, snappy English and French health-based videos, in collaboration with Alberta Health Services and the Dietitians of Canada, airing on CTV). Their skills extend to researching and producing historical videos for museum theatrical and web use (such as their recent video series for the Alberta Museums Association).
Most of all, they love working with people to creatively and effectively capture their stories!
Doug Latimer: Director of Photography and Post Production
Doug began his career as a portrait photographer, working under the guidance of Robert Cantelon, a recognized master of the photographic arts. As the industry changed from film to digital, Doug and Rachel created a video production company, Shadow Light Productions Ltd. Doug honed skills in the video production facility at the Banff Centre. Under the guidance of respected broadcast engineers, he developed the post production skills to deliver finishedvideo to the broadcast standards of any broadcaster in North America.
Over many mountaineering trips near her home in Canmore, Rachel Gauk and partner, Doug Latimer, also a highly skilled mountain guide, collected dramatic footage of the glaciers that formed the inspiration and basis of their film, The Vanishing Ice. The team’s first documentary film received its premiere at Hot Docs 2005 festival in the Canadian Spectrum Series and has gone on to multiple other festival screenings in North America since. The film was broadcast on CBC’s Country Canada and distributed by FilmWest Associates.
