Services

Noravera is a digital video production company based in Vancouver, BC. We engage in meaningful storytelling with a business sensibility. We infuse strategy and cohesive narratives to drive imaginative and thoughtful stories by way of video.

Our work takes us all over the world, from the vibrant metropolitan streets of Toronto to the dusty cattle camps of South Sudan. We are dedicated to digging deeper, to finding not only a unique but a relevant voice for the story and to delivering a modern, current look and feel which people crave. Most importantly, we understand that you do what you do because you love it and we’re happy to say we feel the same way.

PRE-PRODUCTION

With a deep background in creation, we deal with numerous types of projects.  Clients will approach us with a script already written and ready to go and execution for us is second nature.  We also write much of our own content from scratch by parameters given to us to help understand the demographic and nature of the video.  If you’re looking for a consistent look and feel to the project overall, we highly recommend going this route.

PRODUCTION

We generally like to work in small crews to keep the cost as efficient as possible.  With several camera packages to choose from, we’ve worked with budgets of all sizes.  Whether you’re looking to film a broadcast TV spot with our RED camera package, or you’re looking for event coverage with our Canon C100 package, we can take on any project that comes our way.

AERIALS

Our team is certified from Transport Canada with a Special Flight Operations Certificate, and is in good standing with Parks Canada, the Harbour Tower in Vancouver, the Municipality of North Vancouver and Vancouver and the Department of Transportation.  We’ve worked with the RCMP and traffic control companies to insure a safe flight and awesome cinematography go together.

POST-PRODUCTION

Following up with the idea of doing everything in house, we’ve created a workflow that includes post-production supervision to ensure timely completion of the product, editing, graphics and animation.  Our editing goes beyond compiling the footage together, it’s cut like it should be felt.  This process requires careful collaboration between all three stages of production, and should be planned ahead.

PHOTOGRAPHY

It’s well documented that a quality still image captures a viewer faster than a video, but doesn’t necessarily retain engagement as long.  Our photography has taken us to the edges of the world, to remote locations in Africa to events in our backyard.  It’s important to document these events and share them to the world.


Team


Geoff Livingston

Co-Founder, Producer

Geoff’s strengths lie in his exceptional ability to connect and engage with people.  As a graduate of BCIT’s Marketing Management program, Geoff’s experience in strategy, communication and management have led Noravera’s team to a reputable brand not only in Vancouver, but across North America and Europe.

As an avid outdoorsman, Geoff is in heaven living in Western Canada and his love for exploring his own backyard have led to countless projects in Canada’s True North (and the inspiration for the name, Noravera).

He started out creating mountain biking and skiing videos and continues to be drawn to projects where he can flex his expertise in extreme sports.

Geoff’s optimism and drive carries over to the effortless way Noravera handles their work; an egoless and seamless production from start to finish.

Brian Ceci

Co-Founder, Cinematographer

There is an emotivity to Brian’s work that goes beyond skill or experience. Though he has plenty of both, he also has the uncanny talent for making the viewer open up and experience the life on screen as though it was their own. In this way, he often creates images filled with nostalgia, longing and excitement.

Growing up in the Pacific North West of Canada, Brian became enamoured by the way light hits the raw beauty of the earth and this connection lies evidently in his cinematic body of work.

He is a world traveller and a true explorer, having visited over 40 countries and counting. He lets each place he visits tell the story and does so in a way that’s almost tangible.

He is dedicated to delivering quality and exploring new avenues as often as possible, which adds to the transformative essence of his work.

Jon Flahr

Director

Jon’s expert ability to direct lies in his deep understanding of filmmaking from concept to completion.  An exceptional editor, Jon has taken his ability to tell stories to set and is often the one writing scripts as well.  He truly sees the bigger picture and is able to marry all the pieces into a united product.

Originally from Kamloops, Jon’s experience speaks volumes. He has worked on dozens of feature film sets as well as directing TV, YouTube pre-roll spots and documentary for Noravera.

His witty personality shines through in his work, as he subtly injects his ‘Flahr-ism’ trademark in everything he does. On set, he is thorough and thought out, knowing just what is needed to capture the story moment.

Callum McGuffie

Editor

Callum’s passion for filmmaking began at a young age. His love of the craft and eagerness to learn led him into taking several animation and filmmaking night courses at Capilano University and Langara College, before he even graduated high school.

He later on enrolled at BCIT where he graduated with a Diploma in Television and Media Production, excelling in the program and coming to Noravera as an intern.

After becoming a full time member of Noravera, Callum’s skills and vision as an editor unfolded at a tremendous rate. He is an incredibly hard worker, and will not rest until a project is carried out to its fullest potential. That drive and broadening skill set has turned him into an integral part of the team.

Jacquie Snyman

Production Coordinator

Jacquie’s role as Production Coordinator goes far beyond keeping the team organized on the daily. She plays an integral part of every moving piece Noravera has, making sure shoots are well planned, executed efficiently and delivered on time and on budget. She handles each project with fervor and whole hearted attention.

Having recently relocated from New Zealand, she has experience in managing the growth of a successful Post Production facility in Auckland and has now had the opportunity to cultivate her ingenuity even further with Noravera.

An avid traveller, Jacquie is also quick on her toes (as you often have to be when on the road) and able to navigate any bumps that may arise with care and skilled precision.

Testimonials

Graham MacInnes & Jackson Murphy

We love working with Noravera! They are so similar to us in a lot of ways. They are hardworking, scrappy, innovative, and love to think big. And their attention to detail and the small things as part of their craft is great – always bringing something to the table we didn’t think of – a way to shoot something differently, or edit it, and they are the nicest group of filmmakers you can work with. We’re just happy they still have time for all of our crazy timelines, requests, ideas, and shenanigans.

Treana Peake

Never have I worked with a company that has poured so much heart into a project.  It is unbelievable how Noravera has been able to capture the incredible moments and immense beauty found in the regions where the Obakki Foundation works, and bring them to life in such beautiful videos.  Being able to show our donors pieces of Africa through absolute brilliant creative videos, has significantly impacted our donations to date, enabling us to help more people around the world.

Treana Peake, Founder, Obakki Foundation

Kristyna Vogel

I have worked with Noravera on several projects and they have exceeded my expectations on all of them. They are excellent at interpreting a concept and providing creative direction while still being very flexible in the delivery.
