We can't put in enough words with what we have accomplished in 2021, and not just here at UnReel, but the community we have worked alongside and been supported by!

This blog post is for all of you Creatives, for all of your hard work in 2021!

We want to first start off with the work we have done this year.

This year started out with nothing more than 2 friends finding the COVID struggle a little too much for being freelancers, with everything on lockdown we had to find a new structure for ourselves to stay afloat through the pandemic.

UnReel was founded after Trevor reached out to Eric about a manufacturing company who was looking for video and photo work. Solidifying a year long contract with Micro Tool & Machines Ltd. We launched UnReel Creative and found a studio downtown Winnipeg at 5 - 376 Donald St.

Since the launch of UnReel we have worked alongside so many talented professionals, through TV series, documentaries, commercials, music videos.

We have grown from just simply shooting videos to building entire brand strategies to help companies, and businesses kickstart their careers, and sharing the stories of their hard work and success in their industries.
