Episode 17 – The Living Sky Media Conglomerate

I’ve known Riley for a while now and have been working with him for at least three years.  Riley has always struck me as a different kind of character.  Wait, how do I put it…..  Riley’s weird.  He’s an extraordinary individual, I’ve always said he’s a brilliant artist.  You won’t know exactly what I mean until you do a video with him and begin to understand why he so passionate about telling a story with film.

Riley’s been running his company, Living Sky Media since he finished University several years ago.  He’s filmed at the Olympics in 2010, did a tour of Saskatchewan with Scott Schultz last summer and last fall put together a very moving documentary on the housing problem in Regina.

I look up to Riley as an entrepreneur and an artist.  A very unique combination in the business community, and a reason that I believe Riley stands out.  He’s not like other companies and he’s an all around fun guy.  You can learn a lot from this young James Cameron.
