      I sent an email to Corby's Distillery yesterday and today I received a telephone call from the company's Vice President of External Affairs, Howard Kirke.

      He's quite excited about the find and would be more than happy to include a copy of the video on their website and intranet, with links back to me.

      Mr. Kirke said that through the years they have concentrated their marketing on the brands they carry (Wiser's, Lambs, Seagram's etc) , apposed to the distillery itself. Regardless, it's an historical find that needs to be captured and celebrated. They are working on an historical building honoring there history and contributions to Canada.

      So, no money, but could still be great exposure for myself. It'll fit nicely in my video portfolio.

      At the end of the day, I was going to recreate the presentation anyways. I've crossed the first bridge by receiving their blessings.

        I am so happy to hear your good news! In a sense it is a tribute to both the Distillery and your father's work. I look forward to seeing the completed work.

        You might also look for local historian/genealogy folks that might want something similar done with their photo/historical content. You would have a demonstration copy from Corby's to prove that you can do it.

        Which also might have you investigating a whole type of video you can produce.

        You have the voice for it, so let it rip.

          For those that have been following the thread, the presentation has been completed.
          http://mikemoon.net/vlog/2010/03/11/corbys-distillery-visitor-slide-presentation/ (or http://tinyurl.com/yfbdcq5)

          I decided to keep the video all together, instead of separating it into smaller parts. It's just short of 14 minutes long.
          If you really can't stand learning about how Whiskey is made, might I suggest you watch the first part and maybe the last minute.

          Thank you all for your support and yah know, whiskey making isn't boring, it's fun. :)
