This past weekend 5150 had a crew at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. We were shooting a documentary, not only on the Expo itself, but on a few of the participants.
The main focus was Stand-up Comic & TV star Howie Miller whom we shot some B-Roll with earlier in the year. We also focused on several Cos-players including Trevor Goupil.
In addition to Howie, Trevor and a myriad of attendees, we were fortunate enough to have several of the guests help us with our documentary project. Jim Shooter, Kenny & Spenny, Mark Meer, Raphael Sbarge & Garrett Wang were gracious enough to donate some of their precious time to our project.
While our focus of the doc is on the attendees it’s always nice to get the celebrity guests to weigh in on how awesome the Expo here in Calgary really is. It really blew us away when Mr. Wang said that the Calgary Expo is top 3 in the world.
This was an amazing experience! I was finally in a place where people actually understand my obscure movie references. We were walking into Hall-C and it was so crowded that I was reminded of a scene from ‘The Mummy’ so I started chanting Imhotep Imhotep…and people got it and were laughing out loud! I felt right at home!

We still have some B-Roll shooting to do with both Trevor and Howie but we are planning on a Summer release of our doc. Be sure to check out the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo coming up September 22-24th! For now, checkout our picture gallery on Facebook!
5150 has a pair of product videos coming out for Kyosho and “Come Drive With Us – Psycho Nitro Blast” should be dropping in the June time-frame.
