The Flags of Remembrance set to hit Red Deer screen

Allan Cameron and Veteran’s Voices of Canada to be featured in upcoming short film

FITTING TRIBUTE - Executive director and founder of Veteran’s Voices of Canada

Nationally renowned patriot, videographer and Sylvan Lake resident, Allan Cameron, will be the focus of an upcoming short film set to be screened at the Red Deer Legion #35 on Wednesday March 9 at 6:00 p.m.

The film, produced by Reuben Tschetter of CACHE Productions, follows Cameron over the course of five days prior to and following the FlagsOf Remembrance ceremony held alongside Highway 11 near Sylvan Lake .

The Flags of Remembrance is 1 of 15 films Tschetter is producing as part of The CACHE Project. Tschetter describes the films as human-interest pieces.

“These stories encapsulate the innovation, diligence, energy and emotion within a strong Albertan identity,” said Tschetter on The CACHEProject. “The project aims to tell stories with high quality original visual narratives and to develop an original style of storytelling that complimentsCentral Albertan culture.”

Tschetter said he was thrilled to be able to tell Cameron’s story and share his experience.

“Allan [Cameron] has gone well above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to patriotism in Canada,” said Tschetter. “He kept going on what he has wanted to do his entire life and he has found the support to do it. He has brought people together and formed a community aroundVeteran’s Voices of Canada and the work they do.”

Cameron, being a visual storyteller himself following a well-established career in television before beginning his veteran documentation initiative  Veteran’s Voices of Canada, stated he enjoyed the opportunity to be on the other end of the camera.

“It’s not something I expected it was pretty cool,” said Cameron on the experience. “Reuben followed us around for a couple of days and unless it was the days we did sit down interviews we almost didn’t know he was there.”

Cameron added this is an excellent skill for a videographer to have and it can be seen in his work.

“The film gives everyone a great overall idea of what it is I have going on here and why I started it,” said Cameron. “He’s good at what he does and that came across very clearly from what I’ve seen so far.”

As for the future of the Veteran’s Voices of Canada Flags of Remembrance ceremony, Cameron explained 2016 will continue to see growth for the event as more and more communities across the country join the initiative.

Those in attendance for the film will have the opportunity to stay for food, beverage and a live band following the film with the film set to start at 6 p.m. sharp.

The production of this film was made possible with a grant from TELUS Optik Local and will soon be available for free on demand on Optik T.V. and Optik Local’s YouTube channel online.
